Ryan comments that Charlie Dent is simply wrong about how long the House Dems’ discharge petition will take. This can happen very fast if Dent actually wants it to. All we need is his signature on this thing:
And Dent’s wrong about the fundamentals. If they brought up a new bill in committee to file a discharge petition around, it would take ~30 days to ripen. But the Democrats plan on filing a discharge petition for a Republican sponsored clean CR that was brought up in committee months ago — so he doesn’t have to wait that long at all. This could be over in 7-10 days.
