He’s not messing around.
According to Breitbart News, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stating that the founding fathers “would be ashamed” by her push for proxy voting.
“Our founders would be ashamed,” McCarthy said. “They expect us to assemble, but what she is doing [is going] directly against the founders’ article one, four, five or six because the more she keeps us away — she can stay in San Francisco near her freezer, write the bill. And now the idea, to take the proxy vote … [voters] cannot hold accountable somebody that passes that vote onto somebody else.”
“Now, we’ve proven we can come back,” he continued. “The Senate is back. And we can work. I’ve actually laid out a plan for more than a month of how we can do this in a safe manner. Just the states are opening up, but if you look at the history of America, Congress has met during the Civil War when there [were] fights not far from here, during every war, during every crisis, during 9/11, Congress was still able to meet and carry out the role they should be doing, and we should be doing that now.” You can watch a clip of McCarthy’s remarks here.
