"Congressional Republicans have become little more than rubber stamps for their twice-indicted leader, Rep. Tom DeLay (R-Texas)," Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Illinois) said November 3, 2005, in The Hill. "By blindly following DeLay and President Bush, these members of Congress are complicit in the flawed stewardship of this nation. Republicans in Congress are putting their rubber-stamp approach to politics ahead of the priorities of the people they represent. Meanwhile, the American people are crying out for relief."

On March 30, 2006, Luis wrote In the Blog from Another Dimension:

"House Democrats joined together on a common theme and started pounding on the Republicans, hitting their major weaknesses and using a biting and recognizable motif—in this case, 'The Republican Rubber-Stamp Congress,' something that has been around for a month or more but has not been getting too much attention until late.
"In a series of one-minute speaking allotments, different Representatives banged home on topics like prescription drugs, college aid, energy policy, hurricane Katrina, massive overspending and the deficits, the Iraq War, and Homeland Security. They pointed out that the Republicans in Congress have simply gone along with everything the Bush administration has asked for, and that has led to today's sorry state of affairs."
