The inevitable effort to rein in Marjorie Taylor Greene’s frivolous motions to adjourn, triggered an incredibly offensive personal slam on Greene’s part. 

Rep. David Cicilline Says He’ll Propose Rule to Stop Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Delay Tactics

BY ALEXANDRA HUTZLER

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s repeated efforts to delay work in the House of Representatives has drawn bipartisan ire and may result in a new rule change.

After Greene, a Georgia Republican, tried Wednesday to stall the lower chamber’s final vote on President Joe Biden‘s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package by forcing a motion to adjourn, Representative David Cicilline (D-R.I.) said he will propose a rule change to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

“I’m dead serious,” he told reporters.

“He’s trying to come up with a solution for the repeated attempts made by one of his colleagues to go home early from work and disrupt the important work Congress has to do. He plans to discuss this further with leadership and the Rules Committee,” said Cicilline’s press secretary, Matt Handverger.

Asked about Cicilline’s proposal, Greene told Newsweek: “Do you mean Rep. Mussolini? Not only did Democrats unilaterally strip away my committees, now they want to remove any powers I have to represent my district. The Democrats run the House of Hypocrites with tyrannical control.”

David Cicilline found this characterization incredibly offensive (understandably), and responded on twitter.

I couldn’t agree more.
