McCarthy: Pelosi’s proxy voting rule is an ‘unconstitutional’ power grab

Speaker Pelosi’s secret plot was just blown wide open by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who exposed the real reason she has refused to call the House back into session, instead, instituting a new proxy voting rule.

“This is endangering the Constitution to ensure Pelosi has more power,” McCarthy said on Wednesday. “Our Constitution, our country expects us to convene,” he continued, pointing to several examples of other catastrophic events in US history that did not prevent Congress from meeting in person.

“63 Democrats are not coming to work, and they’re still being paid,” McCarthy explained. “They were able to come to work a couple of weeks ago but now they can’t. Why? Because it empowers Nancy Pelosi to have all the power. Only 20 members can hold all the proxies to be able to pass bills they want on the floor — unheard of. And it is not what the founders believed this country should do.”

House Republicans filed a lawsuit on Tuesday to block the proxy voting rule, which was approved in a party-line vote two weeks ago, characterizing it as an unprecedented and partisan power grab.

Pelosi responded to the accusations on Tuesday, saying that the rule change was meant to “save lives, defeat the virus and grow the economy,” calling the lawsuit an act of “dangerous obstruction.”

Unless there is a constitutional amendment for term limits in Congress… she will stay until she dies….. Don’t understand why CA keeps voting these people back in office since they don’t represent their constituents.
Just imagine Pelosi eating $20/pint ice cream when there is homelessness, unemployment, housing crisis, medical facilities, food shortages, etc in her district. I really don’t care how much Pelosi pays for ice cream or what she eats. I do have a heartburn when she or any elected official shrugs their responsibilities regarding their constituents.

Why is that turnip from a vegetable home after it got alcohol poisoning even allowed on the same property as those that actually try to help We The People! Those who don’t should be escorted off permanent. Government was set up as a body to work FOR the people BY the people. It was also meant for those in government to server a specific term, go Hong to previous job,new voted in, they only got paid for time serving, no special bonuses,special insurance, etc.The wage was to be REASONABLE. No wage where they leave office rich! Get SCUM like that OUT!

I think a lot will happen in trumps 2nd term, if the Dems don’t cheat their way to a win. That may be why they’ve been desperately trying to get him out of office, because A.G. Barr likely has all he needs to pull the plug in the swamp. In a 2nd term, Trump can focus on getting the criminals out, and letting elected and appointed officials know they’ll pay for their crimes!

Nasty Nancy is only looking out for herself and the rich. As long as Nasty Nancy gets everything she wants, to hell with the American people who are jobless, lacking food, money and the needs of the American people. Nasty Nancy has done nothing for everyday people. As long as she sits on her throne and eats 13.00 a quart ice cream she is not worried about anything else. Its too bad someone couldn’t reposess her house she lives in and let her see what everyday citizens are going through. I say send Pelosi and all her loyal Dumbrats to Iran or Saudi Arabia or maybe Iraq. Hell wouldn’t have them!

I was born and raised in California. Five years ago I moved to another state. I have never liked Nancy Pelosi but it seems as though she had gotten a lot worse with the power thing. She wants to run the country without being the President. The only way to get rid of her is the voters in California have to vote for someone else and win. Only they can vote her out. That needs to happen but will that happen? I certainly hope so – before she ruins the United States of America! She isn’t working for the people she was elected to serve. She’s a disgrace.

Pieceafeces Pelosi is at the top of the heap of vile, deceitful, dishonest, hate-filled, lying politicians in this Country. The house was never to be a full-time position in the scheme of this governments operations by our Founding Fathers anyway. All House members were expected to have a full-time job away from the House. Summon them as needed and pay them only for hours served. If they don’t show when summoned; they don’t get paid. Then at some point, “No Shows” of a predetermined number/percent, disqualifies them from holding their seat in the House. It’s high time we return Congress to the status Our Founding Fathers intended. This should also remove the Speaker from the third-in-line to the Presidency. This Congress has blatantly showed America, and Americans just how unnecessary they truly are over the past three years.

• “This is endangering the Constitution to ensure Pelosi has more power,” – – – – –
“Why? Because it empowers Nancy Pelosi to have all the power. Only 20 members can hold all the proxies to be able to pass bills they want on the floor — unheard of.”

Pelosi is one corrupt, arrogant and evil human being who thinks she, herself, should hold all the power — in other words, her actions and words, show that she is a power worshiper.

• “There are two Greek forms of the word arrogance used in the New Testament, essentially meaning the same. Huperogkos means “swelling” or “extravagant” as used in “arrogant words” (2 Peter 2:18; Jude 1:16). The other is phusiosis, meaning a “puffing up of the soul” or “loftiness, pride” (2 Corinthians 12:20). It is incumbent upon believers to recognize that being arrogant or having a pompous attitude is antithetical to godliness (2 Peter 1:5-7). Arrogance is nothing more than an overt DISPLAY OF ONE’S SENSE OF SELF-IMPORTANCE (2 Timothy 3:2). It is akin to that “it’s all about me” mindset that says, “The WORLD REVOLVES AROUND ME.” (Proverbs 21:24).

Just something else we can not understand about congress. They stay home and get paid big. Average pay $174000.00 yearly yet they seem to reach millions in wealth. How? They pass laws for us to abide by then exempt themselves from those very laws they receive a pay raise each year unless they vote not to. They receive lifetime health care after serving at least one term along with pay. Talk about cushy jobs boy do they not take the cake and we as citizens continue to send them back to Washington each election cycle. Wake up folks we have term limits already it is called VOTING.

Term limits needed. The moderate Democrats needs to pull away from the radical left Democrats or face defeat in 2020. Pulling away from the party won’t splinter it as it is already splintered.

I really don’t care if Pelosi pays $20 a pint for ice cream… it’s her money…. What I do care about is the constituents in her area dealing with homelessness, unemployment, housing, healthcare, education, day care, food, utilities…. these are everyday issues the average person faces….. yet the elected officials don’t seem to care about their constituents when they are the ones that put them in office.
