The legislation has over 200 cosponsors and is supported by a number of Republicans.

Pelosi started speaking at 10:04 a.m. and stopped shortly after 6 p.m.

When it comes to congressional bloviating, the place to be is the U.S. Senate, with its hallowed (if recently restricted) tradition of "filibusters", long speeches exploiting Senate rules to block or delay votes, usually to thwart the will of the majority party.

"The parable of the good Samaritan is one that has been used over and over again to welcome strangers", she added. "Samaritans were not friends to the person the Samaritan saved. But he was a man of justice".

Pelosi read heart-rending testimonies from Dreamers who had written their representatives about their lives. She called it a "diversionary tactic".

"There is probably a lot of blame to go around for the Republicans who are advocating for this debt", Paul said to CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront.

And remember when they showed that a person was "out of touch"? "They've spoken out in a courageous way". Her speech explained why. "Second, Trump just offered three times as many people as Barack Obama ever dreamed of".

And make no mistake, Democrats were willing participants in this.

Paul took to the Senate floor many times Thursday refusing to agree to move up the time for a vote in the chamber on the bill, which requires unanimous consent from all 100 senators. "But the amusing thing is you know so often in the media we hear 'we want you to work together.' They are are working together but working together to spend a ton of money". But I still don't see many flaws in what Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are doing.
