Members of the U.S. House are starting to freak out.
Although arrogant Democrat leaders like Nancy Pelosi initially predicted the House would overwhelmingly approve the $2 trillion stimulus package to fight Coronavirus – things are starting to look more uncertain. It’s very possible that the stimulus package could be delayed.
As a result, many House members are now scrambling to book flights and return to Washington amid concerns that they could be forced to show up in person and vote on the stimulus, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. No one wants to be the House member who failed to vote because they didn’t show up, according to Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Struggling With Delays
Initially, the legislation was expected to pass by voice vote. Such a move would have allowed the House to avoid compelling all of its members to return to Washington for a recorded roll call vote.
But sadly, Hoyer’s office advised members Thursday evening they are encouraged to be in Washington Friday at 10 a.m. because the bill may not pass that way after all. “There is now a possibility,” the notice from Hoyer’s office said, that there may be a recorded vote instead.
Democrats Betraying The Country
Another reason the vote could be impeded is because of hardcore liberal extremists.
For instance, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York has not ruled out the possibility of asking for the yeas and nays. She could hold up the vote just by herself if she got enough media attention.
The sad part about all of this is that many Republicans might not be able to vote due to them being infected themselves.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said ahead of Friday’s vote that he isn’t sure how many GOP members will be present for the vote, as some members have been infected, others are quarantining and still others will have challenges traveling to DC with canceled flights.
It’s absolute chaos.
Regardless of what happens at this point, it’s pretty safe to say that anything is possible. The House might not be able to get this passed after all.
