They failed.  Only six voted against the rule, Peter King being one of the moderates.

Interestingly, others included Louie Gohmert, Michelle Bachmann and Steve King.  These are charter members of the bug-eyed caucus.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

They were they were trying to make King feel uncomfortable.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

No. Bachmann tweeted that she voted against it because it didn't go far enough.

Sink... could not agree more.  Bachman is dingbat extreme.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Rick Kline just unwittingly gave Greta another good thing about a shutdown.. EPA will have to curtain their enforcement while the gov is shut down.
