Procedural changes impede the chamber's traditional deliberative function

A Missouri congressman said Friday he is fed up with the Obama administration for failing to provide him with enrollment numbers for Obamacare's small-business exchanges.
President Obama hailed his health care law's 8 million customers this spring, but a member of Congress wants to know why he can't get a tally for the law's small-business exchange.
Congressman Lee Terry will host fellow Republican and Missouri Rep. Sam Graves for a small business forum in Omaha.
Liberals are trying every tool at their disposal this year to go after guns. They have failed on Capitol Hill to restrict the Second Amendment, so they are moving through the states to enact their agenda.
A key House Republican is warning that the mandate in President Obama's health care law requiring companies with more than 50 employees to provide adequate health insurance to their workers is so cumbersome that even the parts designed to help firms with compliance will cause headaches.
"As you know, the SHOPs opened, although without online enrollment and many promised features, on October 1, 2013," Mr. Graves wrote to Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. "Over seven months later, we still do not have any federal and some state SHOP enrollment data. I continue to be concerned that HHS or CMS has not compiled and/or released this information."
Rep. Sam Graves, Missouri Republican and chairman of the Small Business Committee, wrote to the Obama administration Wednesday to reiterate his request for enrollment data from the federal and state Small Business Health Options Plans (SHOPs).
