Texas State Dem: GOP ‘Rigging The System’ On House Floor To Push Through Agenda

 

Texas State Rep. Gina Hinojosa tells Jonathan Capehart that Texas House Republicans were “12 to 15 members shy of reaching the constitutionally-required quorum” but are moving ahead with their “illegitimate” push to pass their restrictive voting bill and hints at what the Texas Democrats will do next to fight back: “It’s a whole new ball game … we’re planning our plan of attack as we speak.”

  1. Off topic: Does anyone remember when Donald Trump murdered Herman Cain by bringing him to a Covid rally?
    “Aww shucky I’m one dead ducky.”
    Those were the days…

  2. Well if the words of the Lt. Governor don’t tell you that they are pushing a racist agenda, I don’t know what else to say….

  3. 2020 Census: “For the first time ever, the white population percentage is decreasing.”
    Desperate republicans:

    1. The surprise wrt the census was how quickly the decline is occurring not that it is occurring something that has predicted for quite some time.

    2. Yeah the Republicans are terrified. They why the Democrats don’t want Republican Voting Cubans immigrating here, yet are having Democrat voters flood through the southern border

  4. Glad Dems are finally understanding what they are up against. No low is too low for folks who’ve decided you have no worth.

    1. @Ray… and at their rate they are killing off their base, those headquarters will each have One Lone Republican Occupant.

  5. There was no “widespread voter fraud” in the 2020 election, there was just WIDESPREAD VOTING!
    Trump lost. Biden won. It is what it is.

    1. Sorry but troop got more votes. The democrats are continuing to destroy America. They know if they can’t commit fraud means they’ll lose

    1. @lester Tubog
      Didn’t cheat last time, you just believed trumps big lie!
      Trump lost Bigley!

      JOE BYEDON IS YOUR DADDY!

  6. “We could be present to call for verification, but that would add to quorum, so somewhat of a catch 22. ”
    No it’s not. They’re 12 to 15 members short of a quorum. Unless it takes 12 Democrats to call for verification, the answer is simply to send in between 1 and 11 Democrats and make sure they call for verification.
