  • Carl Hulse, "In Raucous House Vote, G.O.P. Oil Refinery Bill Squeaks By," New York Times, October 8, 2005. "'House Republicans have taken the lead in providing America with price stability and a bold plan for this nation's energy future,' said Speaker J. Dennis Hastert, who along with Mr. DeLay and other senior lawmakers buttonholed and browbeat resistant Republicans as the clock ticked on the vote. Democrats attacked the substance of the bill and the process that the Republicans employed to force it through. The Democrats accused the majority of abusing House rules by stretching what should have been a five-minute vote to deliver a bill that Democrats said would benefit profitable oil companies but do little for American drivers."
