Technically Congresswoman Katie Porter was never removed from Financial Services Committee. She prioritized two other very important committees, House Oversight and Natural Resources. It was at her own request. She’ll be truly masterful in Oversight and Natural Resources.
Katie Porter needs to be speaker in 2022. RT if you agree.
Katie Porter lost her seat on a House committee where she absolutely excelled in public hearings.
The reason is pretty weak: an arcane rule that allows Reps to be on *only* that committee - or - on multiple others.
Porter should keep that committee seat. https://t.co/imb2GVosTT
Katie Porter is now on Oversight. She asked to stay on Financial Services as well but was denied (a mistake). But as much as we liked seeing her go toe to toe with the financial industry, I think Oversight is perfect for handling Trump Administration fallout. https://t.co/djWvmkrNm3
Rep. Katie Porter being taken off of the Financial Services Committee is SO OBVIOUS, her whole time there she questioned every single financial motive of Trump’s administration. So why would they want someone as meticulous as her bringing oversight to Biden’s administration?
The decision by Democratic leadership to reject Rep. Katie Porter's waiver request to serve simultaneously on the Financial Services Committee along with her new committee assignments is such a poor, shortsighted action. It makes absolutely no sense.
Katie Porter herself stated that Dem leadership refused to grant her a waiver.
This is a Nancy Pelosi move in fealty to big banks who wanted Porter off Financial Services Cmte so she can’t shred them in hearings.
#PelosiGrantPorterWaiver or step down!!!
“This is why people outside the Beltway can sometimes hate Washington so much. If you are an American desperately seeking help with your finances and looking for someone, anyone in Washington to listen ... You want a champion. You want a Katie Porter.” https://t.co/yYEJvAXmEw
I want Katie Porter to be the next speaker of the house. She’s so fucking TOUGH.
Katie Porter didnt lose anything.🙄 She determined her priorities & made a decision using her own judgement. Bluechecks are so desperate for divisiveness they will strip the autonomy of one of their supposed favs for a think piece that is nothing more than concern trolling
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) assisted kicking Rep. Katie Porter (D-Calif.) off of the House Financial Services Committee.
This is a loss for the American consumer and unfortunately a win for corporations to not be held responsible when confronted by Porter. We all lose because of this poor decision.

Honestly, this Katie Porter outrage is why I hope Democrats will start ignoring this website.
Joe Biden did and he won the election with a whole deck of cards stacked against him & flipped 2 GOP states.
Ossoff and Warnock did and they made history sweeping Georgia in a runoff.
What about the last 40 years of poverty wages, bailouts, loss of unions, inaction on the gender/race pay gap, and a bipartisan commitment to *barely* regulating banks makes anyone think the Dems, as an institution, would want @RepKatiePorter
on Fin Svcs?
No Member of Congress has done more to shine a light on the financial services industry than Katie Porter.
Her ability to show how working people get screwed by many in this world is unparalleled. This is a monster mistake that needs correcting. https://t.co/a5JqnBGLa2

House steering committee decides waivers. They're common: most of the members on HFSC have a waiver and serve on other committees. David Scott, who joined Republicans to rollback Dodd-Frank (S. 2155), got one so he could also chair Agriculture.
But Katie Porter didn't get one.
If you're making Katie porter a victim, stop it. The hyperventilation on this platform can be really annoying.
OMG people! Quit acting like Katie Porter was kicked off of the Finance Committee. She chose two other committees as her 1 and 2 and got them. You people are making my head hurt. Why is it all the whyte women are butthurt about it?
Representative KATIE Porter, you will be a vital asset on any Subcommittee. The authors of arcane House rules limiting committee membership need a bit of #KatiePorterWhiteboarding
Opinion | Katie Porter is off the House Financial Services Committee. We’re all worse off for it. https://t.co/do6pjYFDws

Katie Porter isn’t a bad choice, but there are plenty of capable people in congress who aren’t her. Maybe Cori Bush one day after shes had more experience. I also think speakers should have term limits!
Very important tweetstorm on why the Dem leadership’s treatment of Katie Porter might come to bite them come 2022. https://t.co/yYgL4tKEIt
I think the world of Katie Porter, but she did make the request for another committee to be her priority, and didn't ask for a waiver until she got her priority choice.
Any chance you can make sure that Katie Porter's valuable skills can still be used in meaningful ways, after being taken off the House Financial Services Committee? Hope so.
