Townhall – Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) ripped House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s attempt to change the voting rules at the eleventh hour. Or, rather, at the 2 o’clock in the morning hour. The Democrat wanted to introduce proxy voting for their upcoming vote on the Payment Protection Program to protect the health of lawmakers during the coronavirus, she claimed. But Republicans weren’t having it.
“You saw an effort yesterday, by Nancy Pelosi—in secret at 2:30 in the morning—to drop a document to literally change the way Congress has voted for over 200 years. To go to some proxy system that had never been vetted,” Scalise said. “Was not a bipartisan effort.” [snip]
