From the office of Steny Hoyer:
This afternoon [4PM ET] the House will consider a resolution disapproving of the conduct by Rep. Joe Wilson (SC-2) during the joint session of Congress, September 9, 2009. It will be offered by Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Majority Whip James Clyburn. Congressman Wilson’s outburst was a breach of decorum and brought discredit to the House of Representatives.
So how do you think the Republicans will react to this simple declaration pointing out Rep. Joe Wilson disrespected Congress and the Commander in Chief?
Raising a question of the privileges of the House.
Whereas on September 9, 2009, during the joint session of Congress convened pursuant to House Concurrent Resolution 179, the President of the United States, speaking at the invitation of the House and Senate, had his remarks interrupted by the Representative from South Carolina, Mr. Wilson; and
Whereas the conduct of the Representative from South Carolina was a breach of decorum and degraded the proceedings of the joint session, to the discredit of the House: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the House of Representatives disapproves of the behavior of the Representative from South Carolina, Mr. Wilson, during the joint session of Congress held on September 9, 2009.
