Top US Democrat breaks record with eight-hour speech

Nancy Pelosi used a rare privilege to commandeer the House floor for 5 hours and counting, while wearing 4-inch heels
Pelosi, who turns 78 next month, had never done anything like it.
She used her unlimited, "magic" minute, available in the House to only to party leaders, to speak for six hours and counting, reading story after emotional story about DREAMers who aspire to become US citizens.
She read Bible passages. (Image: AAP) "I have had the privilege of reading the testimony from Dreamers".
While the stalemate continues and the Senate debate drags into the night, Hoyer has asked House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy to bring a 24-hour continuing resolution to the floor to keep the government open.
"[Pelosi] said she demanded certain things and walked away with none of them", Conway said. "But I can handle it if you can".
House rules allow the minority leader to speak as long as needed.
There is a reason why Nancy Pelosi is Target A now that Hillary Rodham Clinton has left the scene.
'And she wasn't wearing these kinds of shoes, ' he chuckled, showing the press corps one of his more comfortable loafers. Democrats in 2007 through 2010 were quite a bit more centralized than they had been when Tom Foley was speaker, but I don't think the committee structure had atrophied almost as much then as it has now. When she finally stopped, she turned around to high-five her cheering colleagues before sitting down.
They cycled in and out of the chamber. Her speech is supporting Democrats' attempt to legalize Dreamers and she wants Republicans to act in support of this, too.
House Democrats joining Pelosi in opposition to the measure expressed confidence in their stance.
Senate leaders unveiled a two-year budget deal Wednesday, a major victory for both parties that could prevent a government shutdown at the end of this week, but the plan still needs to pass the House where it's already facing strong headwinds. In order for the budget deal to pass, it requires support from minority party. She's speaking to protest inaction on the legislation that protects Dreamers.
Most Senate Democrats are backing it, leaving the House Democrats who aren't as the primary objectors, aside from conservative Republicans who were never expected to get behind the deal.
Pelosi said "a large number" of fellow Democrats are prepared to vote against a short-term spending bill and the massive two-year budget caps deal without a "fix" for DREAMers. She wanted to be a lawyer but could not attend law school until 2012, after the DACAprogram went into effect. He's now a sophomore at Harvard majoring in computer science, Pelosi said, and he's paying for his education by working as a web developer. "I don't know when we would have another opportunity that matches today".
"This is not an issue that's going to go away", Pelosi said in her speech. He said, 'I wish I had brown skin and brown eyes like Antonio.' So attractive, so handsome. All Pelosi was doing was signaling that those votes might not be available unless Ryan gives something in return - and that just as he is catering to those Republicans who are most strongly against immigration, she has similar constraints on her side of the aisle.
