Democrats Working Around The Clock To Come Up With Remote Voting Plan

Published

on

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer recently spoke with reporters on Wednesday stating that Democrats are currently working hard to come up with some sort of plan that will allow lawmakers to be able to still conduct government business, which includes voting without being forced to come to the Capitol in case of an emergency.

However, this particular measure will not be allowed to be used during the coronavirus crisis that has shutdown Congress.

Hey, when Congress is shut down it means they aren’t making new and oppressive laws so that’s okay here.

Here’s more on this plan from The Washington Examiner:

“It’s being worked on very hard,” Hoyer told reporters in a telephone press conference.

The House adjourned in mid-March due to the threat of the spread of the coronavirus and is not scheduled to return until May 4 at the earliest.

That means any legislation must pass by voice approval or unanimous consent, which do not require an official quorum of lawmakers to appear in the chamber.

Hoyer noted that lawmakers working on the plan are trying to find a way to permit roll-call votes “in an emergency situation” for future use, but stated that a vote of the full House would be required to make any sort of changes to H ouse rules that make in-person voting mandatory.

“We need to have members come together, we need to have open and transparent hearings, we need to have changes on the floor with amendments on bills,” Hoyer stated. “That is the way it ought to be done. But in an emergency situation where it is impossible to do it that way, we’ve got to have an alternative.”

Speaker Pelosi has assigned Jim McGovern, the chairman of the Rules Committee, to research how the House can operate remotely without being together in person. However, she like Hoyer, said that this wouldn’t likely happen in the immediate future since the House would have to vote in order to change the rules.

Again, when they aren’t working, they aren’t making more laws, and that’s always good for liberty.

Didn’t Orwell write in “1984” about people being forced to wear masks so everybody would be deemed equal, meaning nobody could be called good looking or ugly? Has anybody made this comparison yet? Food for thought. Anyway, another Republican governor is finally doing the right thing. From Breitbart: Alabama will become one of the next states to eliminate a government-imposed mandate that requires people wear masks in public, sources close to the matter told Breitbart News. A source familiar with state deliberations confirmed that as soon as Friday but definitely in the coming days. Alabama will join several other states nationwide in removing its mandate requiring masks in response to the coronavirus pandemic. https://twitter.com/willainsworthAL/status/1367214634231619584?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367214634231619584%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2021%2F03%2F03%2Fexclusive-sources-alabama-to-join-texas-mississippi-florida-others-in-eliminating-mask-mandates-this-week%2F Check out Biden’s response… https://twitter.com/NBCNews/status/1367192228762963971?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367192228762963971%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-biden-calls-texas-mississippi-governors-of-neanderthals-for-ending-mask-mandate%2F The governor of Mississippi fired back… https://twitter.com/tatereeves/status/1367204994458521616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367204994458521616%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftexas-mississippi-respond-to-biden-neanderthal-remark-about-their-decision-to-reopen And so did Texas Governor Abbott… https://twitter.com/GregAbbott_TX/status/1367243450140086274?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367243450140086274%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftexas-mississippi-respond-to-biden-neanderthal-remark-about-their-decision-to-reopen As you’d expect, Democrats aren’t pleased.

Don’t let Joe speak! Even Biden’s handlers know he isn’t quick on his feet – or in public, in general. We’re talking about a guy who hasn’t held a single solo press conference since becoming POTUS. Check this out, via Daily Wire: Pressure is mounting on President Joe Biden to hold a solo press conference after he has set a modern-day record of 42 days without holding one. Even left-wing publications like CNN are calling out Biden for his lack of transparency, with host Jake Tapper tweeting: [CNN reporter Kevin Liptak] notes that an analysis of the past 100 years shows President Biden’s 15 most recent predecessors all held a formal solo press conference within 33 days of taking office. Biden has not and it’s day 42.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/AZachParkinson/status/1367171678036451333?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367171678036451333%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fquestions-mount-after-biden-sets-modern-record-with-no-solo-press-conferences And here’s the clip from Wednesday where the White House feed cuts out after Biden says he’d be happy to answer questions… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1367303322697400322
