The rules don't apply to Republicans.

First, they ignore an objection to unanimous consent in order to force a bill out of the House Ways and Means Committee. Then, they ignored a rule they themselves had previously applied to hold Democratic judicial nominees - one requiring at least one vote from the minority to move a nominee out of committee - in order to ensure their own nominee, William Pryor, received a vote.

Republicans will do anything to win, even cheat.
