Today, Democrats falsely impugned Trump and Republicans as racist and xenophobic for supporting temporary travel bans against seven specific countries. I reminded hypocritical House Democrats that they voted for travel restrictions against these same seven countries under Obama.
A group of House Democrats, including Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney and Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, have introduced the IG Independence and Empowerment Act to increase the independence of inspectors general and protect them from political retaliation.
This is messed up! House Democrats suspended the rules and jammed 15 unrelated bills into one vote. They said it would take too long to vote on each of these bills individually. If that’s true, why are we quitting work this week at roughly noon on Thursday?
Top House Democrats have launched an investigation into whether Emergent Biosolutions, which recently botched 15 million COVID vaccine doses, won the federal contract to make the shots based on its cozy relationship with a top former Trump official. https://t.co/1YUt0sQvds
You & history. 🙄 Last year, the only policing reform bill was passed by House Democrats. Dems have passed that bill again & it awaits passage in the Senate where the GOP is blocking it.
By the way, didn’t Trump’s budget cut $400M for community policing? https://t.co/qliFDcxF2i https://t.co/kgeWGLobob
House Democrats have passed the DC Statehood bill! 216-208. 💙🍷👏
Arizona Republican Party @AZGOP
AZ Senator @MichelleUgenti
election reform legislation passes the AZ House. Democrats can sit on their hands all they want but watch AZ Representative Jake Hoffman take them to task on their lies and silence @AZSenateGOP @AZHouseGOP
on DC statehood and Supreme Court expansion: "What Senate Democrats and House Democrats are trying to do is fundamentally corrupt, their first priority is to change the rules to stay in power."
The House has again voted on a bill to grant statehood to D.C. — where more than 700,000 Americans live.
The measure has more support than ever before, but it still faces an uphill battle in the Senate.
Question: H.R. 51 is completely unconstitutional, so why do House Democrats keep trying to push this bill through Congress?
Answer: All they want is one-party rule and total control.
It appears that protesters are targeting Manchin's houseboat in the latest effort to intimidate those with opposing views. https://t.co/WKy6RgPb0l
The reason is the refusal of Manchin to kill the filibuster and create the 51st state on just 51 votes. https://t.co/nde6yRrCGi
House Democrats voted today to make Washington, D.C. the 51st state and grant long-overdue congressional representation to more than 700,000 Washingtonians, the majority of them Black and brown. The bill passed over unanimous Republican opposition. On to the Senate.
BREAKING: House Democrats pass a bill 216-208 making Washington D.C. the 51st state, which would stack Congress with more Democrat senators and force Americans to fund killing babies in abortions.
Please ask your senators to oppose the unconstitutional bill.
NEW: House Democrats have approved DC statehood, sending the bill to the Democratically controlled Senate for approval. https://t.co/4LN6kRgawC
With the passage of #HR51 in the House, we are one step closer to putting a 51st star on the flag 🇺🇸
And let it be a reminder that EVERY. ELECTION. MATTERS.
Thank you House Democrats!
House Democrats falsely & hypocritically claim Republican opposition to DC Statehood is about race?
Then why did @LeaderHoyer
once vote against DC Statehood himself?
The hypocrisy runs deep...
House Democrats have passed #DCstatehood for the second-time ever. This cartogram shows which 45 Senate Dems are cosponsoring the bill. 1 other Senate Dem previously backed the 2020 bill, & the remaining 4 have yet to take a position. All Senate Dems are needed for passage https://t.co/F1LFQGD5ne
House Democrats just passed #HR51 to make Washington DC a state. If Europe can make Vatican City an entire country (that's only 109 acres with 825 people) surely we can do this!
Thank you House Democrats for fighting for us in DC. We deserve representation. #DCStatehood #DCStatehoodNow
"House Democrats have produced two radical demagogues whose policies would endanger the lives of innocent Americans, lead to the breakdown of society, and undermine the U.S. Constitution."
House Dems ready to pass DC statehood Thursday, call on Senate to end filibuster to do same https://t.co/kDatyReJNB
House Democrats pass D.C. statehood — launching bill into uncharted territory
With Democrats in control of the White House and both chambers of Congress, activists say they are in their strongest position yet to make D.C. the 51st state.
