How disingenious.  Yes, it missed a procedural deadline -- at her 
orders.  However, lots of other bills that missed that deadline 
get considered anyway.  You see, under House rules the Speaker 
has the authority to waive that deadline and let a bill 

So she told you a half-truth.  Ever heard the saying, "A 
half-truth is a whole lie"?

Something tells me this is all going to come back and haunt her 
next year when she runs for re-election....  I hope you Portland 
folks give her h*ll when that time comes!
