Don Wolfensberger on the “resolution” of the recent Rules impasse:

This time, the Freedom Caucus rebels fell in line after McCarthy struck a “power sharing” agreement with the group that promised greater prior consultation on major legislation, and much deeper spending cuts than the debt limit deal provided. (All five bills subsequently passed the House.)


One is only left to wonder how often this hostage-taking strategy will be used as precedent in the future by the Freedom Caucus, or other majority party splinter groups, to pile their pet rocks onto the House floor agenda.
