From BUSINESS INSIDER (March 31, 2011):
Last night, Lawrence O’Donnell went on a tirade after showing House Majority Leader Eric Cantor saying that he would pass a bill in the House that would automatically become law if the Senate did not act on it.
“Of course, a bill cannot become the law of the land unless passed in word for word identical form by the House and the Senate, and then signed by the President of the United States. Those three things must happen, as every American child knows who has seen any version of how a bill becomes a law, animated or not. No other member of Congress in it’s history has ever believed that a bill could become a law with only one of those three things happening.”
