I don't understand why this guy would pull something like this, but if he does, I hope he is done in November. I'd love to see both sides plaster this guy.

I don't understand why congress can't/wont propose/pass legislation that allows today's technology to take over when 'in session'....

oh yeah, #muhlobbyists

You know the answer to that one. The gravy train is in DC not in the home district. I say this is an opportunity to END DC. How stupid is it to have all members of all three branches of the government in a 68 square mile area of the country? GRAVY. Send them and keep them home.

Amen. Keeps them farther away from the freaking lobbyists, too.

House is just now getting to work on it.

Here was Nancy's wish list:
"...Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky dubbed it “a left-wing episode of Supermarket Sweep.” Pelosi’s proposal was clogged with fantasy items seemingly concocted in the Oberlin College faculty lounge:

$35 million for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington.

$300 million for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Debt forgiveness for the U.S. Postal Service.

Tax credits for solar panels and windmills.

Emissions regulations for airlines.

Guaranteed seats for Big Labor on corporate boards,

New rules on “the diversity of depository institutions.”

Corporate information requirements on “work-life balance initiatives.”

Corporate reporting mandates on employees’ “gender, race, and ethnic identity.”

Comparative statistics on company pay “amongst racial and ethnic minorities (and to the extent possible, results disaggregated by ethnic group) as compared to their white counterparts” and “between men and women for similar roles and assignments.”

Scarier still, Pelosi’s micromanaging bill would have made her America’s precinct captain in chief.

Starting with this November’s election, Pelosi wanted every state that accepted COVID-19 relief money to guarantee at least 14 days of early voting; absentee ballots mailed to all registered voters, whether requested or not; a ban on voter ID cards; prohibition of notarization or witness signatures to authenticate absentee ballots; free return postage on such ballots; and self-sealing envelopes for same.
Pelosi’s ransom note included “ballot harvesting,” whereby one person may submit absentee ballots, on behalf of relatives, friends and God knows whom else. Furthermore, states “may not put any limit on how many voted and sealed absentee ballots any designated person can return.” What could go wrong?..."

Nah. He will win in a landslide. He didn't hold anything else. He just wanted to expose the importance of what was going on. This was the biggest spending bill in the history of the country and it passed with a voice vote. History WILL judge this at a later date, and he wanted votes on the record. Wasn't that long ago, damn near everyone on this board would be going crazy over it similar to the $787bill "stimulus" passed under Obama. This is damn near three times that.
