House Minority Leader McCarthy Exposes Democrats' Potential Dangerous Plans with New Voting Rule
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy lit up the chamber on Wednesday, peeved over a new House rule that allows voting by proxy, rather than voting your darn self. This is apparently unconstitutional (according to McCarthy) and could lead to a rather slippery slope. His rant came during debates over FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act).
Listening to McCarthy here, dude's got a point. We elected our representatives to represent us. We don't elect our representatives so they can hand off their voting ability to... anyone else? Just because reasons?
If you can't make the vote, then you can't make the vote. Then the people who voted for you should know you couldn't make it to the job you were elected to perform.
The House is set to be in session Wednesday for the first time in 10 days. Voting will take place under a controversial new House rule that allows proxy voting on the floor. McCarthy and other GOP lawmakers are already suing over that.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has asked Democratic leaders to hold off on putting a bill on the floor to renew a trio of expired surveillance tools, according to lawmakers and aides, raising new doubts about whether Congress can get the measure over the finish line this week.
Congress's votes affect every American life. So yeah, if you're elected to represent Americans, get your ass onto the House floor, raise the concerns and represent your constituents, abide by the constitutional rules, and don't make up new rules which likely have more nefarious plans than "but I'm afraid of the 'rona."
