Hoyer's Speech Done, Boehner to Come

While the resolution that was just agreed to limits to debate to 60 minutes on each side, as a matter of practice and tradition, both the majority and minority leader are granted basically unlimited time to give extended remarks. Steny Hoyer just gave about a 20 minute, rousing speech on the floor of the House in support of the bill, which will almost certainly make the media highlight reel. John Boehner has yet to speak for the GOP, and I suspect he will talk closer to the close of the show.

Time remaining at this point (not including Boehner's extra time)
Dems: 57 Minutes
GOP: 58 Minutes
