"Mr. Speaker, I just want to remind everyone that we’re talking about a rule here. And this rule, different from those that were proposed in the Congresses before I got here, in the 111th Congress, is an open rule. It allows for amendments.

If this bill needs perfecting, either one of these bills need perfecting, they can be perfected."
