ICYMI: This Congressman’s Rant Is EXACTLY The Passion We Need From Elected Republicans (VIDEO)

BROWSE OUR COLLECTION HERE

While Senators were flying home for Christmas after ramming an obscene Omnibus down our throats, some Congress members NOT voting by proxy were doing what they could to forestall the inevitable.

The vote itself was a lost cause. Unlike the Senate, Dems had all the numbers they needed to push the Omnibus bill through to Biden’s desk.

But it was an opportunity to lay their cards on the table, tell the world exactly where they stood on this process… and remind other elected members that their real duty lies with something much higher than merely holding the party line.

As for the sniping about ‘coming to the table’ to negotiate to spend taxpayer money or, better stated, to borrow money we don’t have…

Congressman Chip Roy takes a blowtorch to that line right out of the gate What ‘table’, exactly do the Democrats claim Republicans won’t ‘come to’ for negotiations?

It’s not THIS table. I don’t have the power to offer an amendment on the floor of the House of Representatives despite being elected by 750,000 Texans. I don’t have the ability or the right to be able to stand up for them and have a debate on the floor of this chamber. Everything the American people are watching right now is a complete sham. It’s a fraud. A fraud being perpetrated on the American people right before their eyes.

That’s just the first of five minutes. He’s just getting warmed up.

He stands in stark contrast to the bloodless betrayal we saw from Mitch McConnell and the toady Senators who lined up behind him.

We love this kind of passion, and respect for the process that has been completely railroaded for the last couple of years (at least) by a handful of powerful insiders with some combination of establishment and/or hard-left agendas. But the gavel changes hands in a few days.

Now if our side can just get our house in order and figure out the Republican House leadership question so that we can hit the ground running on Committees, that would be great.

But if past is prologue, we will surely find some way to botch that, too.
