Who else agrees the most pitiful excuse for a member of the House of Representatives is Jim Jordan?
Tomorrow is the last day of unemployment benefits for millions. The House passed their relief bill back in May. What has the Senate been waiting on for the last 2 months? This lack of urgency and care is why so many have lost faith in our government.
For nearly 90 years, the Constitution has contained a built-in safeguard against presidents who try to retain power beyond the end of their term: presidential power automatically passes to the House Speaker at noon on January 20 if the incumbent muddies the waters enough.
Under the 20th Amendment, the president’s term ends Jan. 20 at noon. If a president & vice president haven’t been chosen by then, the Speaker of the House becomes president. Treating the Nov.3 election as meaningless would make @SpeakerPelosi
: You lie.
The House of Representatives passed the Heroes Act on May 15 with the second round of stimulus. You and @GOP
Senators then twiddled your thumbs for over two months. The Senate isn’t even in session today. Stop lying and start governing. https://t.co/9ervxXcoHm
It is happening. Trump is undermining one of the most important and cherished public institutions - the U.S. Postal Service. There should be hearings on this in the House asap. #SaveTheUSPS https://t.co/iU3OCd0Yeh
Boris Johnson is handing out peerages to his brother, a billionaire Tory donor, a multi-millionaire press baron, and a host of former Tory MPs.
The House of Lords should be abolished.
Here’s the truth: while Democrats in the House will try everything we can to fund the post office, @realDonaldTrump
& Postmaster General Louis DeJoy can still cause mail delays. That means not only do we need people to vote in November, we need people to vote early. https://t.co/rAl2fjADUb
BREAKING: The House just approved $55 million in funding for the CDC and NIH to research gun violence.
Thank you @SpeakerPelosi
& @RosaDeLauro for continuing to make this a top priority. Now it’s the Senate’s turn to act.
The politicization of our institutions seemingly knows no bounds under this administration. Pompeo happily sent thousands of documents to Ron Johnson, but won’t even send the SAME documents to the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which has oversight over the State Department. https://t.co/ttHesSJQpO
These USPS shenanigans are something the House can fix if it has the willpower. The Supreme Court has explained that Congress can enact "all measures necessary to secure [the] safe and speedy transit [of mail] and the prompt delivery of its contents." Ex Parte Jackson (1878)
BREAKING: Democratic leader Diana DeGette, who chairs a panel overseeing the CDC, was distracted by impeachment and missed the threat from SARS-CoV-2, believing it was contained in China, despite closed-door warnings. Pelosi asked her to preside over the House impeachment vote
Congressman Jim Jordan is the MAN!
He is a truth seeking missile of greatness.
He would make an INCREDIBLE Speaker of the House.
Should Nancy Pelosi be replaced by Jim Jordan as Speaker of the House?
RT if you’d like to see Jim Jordan as the Speaker of the House!
I have to agree, the list of the latest peerages is truly sickening, surely we can do better than this? It’s mostly a tick list of Tory sycophants and Conservative lite supporters, if the House of Lords is to continue, let’s get some folk in there that represent real communities.
FACT CHECK: Pelosi passed a six-month extension of the $600/week payment in the House. Senate Republicans oppose that idea and offered one yesterday to cut it to $200/week or 66% of wages, which Schumer blocked while calling for passage of the House bill.
Abolish the House of Lords.
The House quietly voted to block the Trump admin's restriction on transgender individuals serving in the military, as part of a defense spending bill. https://t.co/u2ZCAZ4dlC
It’s a great honour to be receiving a peerage but I will be going to the House of Lords to work. To be part of the Labour opposition holding this shambles of a govt to account - to continue to be a voice for the environment, animal welfare and for West Cumbria.
Peerages for Johnson's brother, a Tory donor, a press baron, a former MP accused of sexual harassment and others who resigned or were rejected by their constituents. This is how the 'old boy's network' operates.
Abolish the House of Lords. Create an elected Senate.
The House has voted to reprimand Rep. David Schweikert, Republican of Arizona, for violating campaign finance laws, its first such action since 2012
Today I voted NO on H.R. 7617, the House Democrat’s second partisan spending bill that would:
I’m honoured and humbled to be nominated to the House of Lords. Thank you to everyone for the kind words and best wishes! Delighted to be able to continue to serve the people of Northern Ireland- big challenges ahead but let’s keep Northern Ireland moving forward.
Correction: the House passed a bill to address this 2 months ago, in May. Mitch McConnell won't allow it on the floor for debate. https://t.co/CNCpyKgFnD
The House has unanimously passed a resolution to reprimand GOP Rep. David Schweikert for breaking congressional and campaign finance rules. He admitted to 11 ethics violations and agreed to pay a $50,000 fine. https://t.co/beETVk5AkJ
