The Push for Remote Congressional Voting

The Push for Remote Congressional Voting

(NewsReady) – The CDC is asking Americans to slow the spread of COVID-19 by following a number of guidelines. For example, the agency suggests people work remotely if possible, wash their hands and social distance. Even with these practices in place, there are multiple confirmed infections in Congress. Now, a bipartisan group of lawmakers is trying to protect our government.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are essential. Without a functioning Congress, citizens and businesses would not receive the help they desperately need in this crisis. Senators and representatives aren’t immune from the coronavirus, though.

That’s why Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) is leading the charge for Congress to work and vote remotely.

Dozens of lawmakers have signed the letter. Initially, only Democrats supported the movement but now Republicans are getting on board too. Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) tweeted his support on Monday.

Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) supports remote voting as well. And on Sunday, during his daily coronavirus briefing, President Donald Trump agreed.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and multiple House members are sick with the coronavirus. Remote voting, if set up correctly, could keep US lawmakers safe to do their jobs and deliver the aid Americans desperately need.

  1. They can’t get anything done now. What makes anyone think they can or will get anything done remotely. Should just send them home and stop their pay. They don’t do anything productive anyway.;

    • They are almost working remotely now. How many full days do they put in in a month, in a year? Especially the old guard in the Democratic congress. Every coup;e o months press releases pop up of some political junket, usualy in Europe , led by Nancy. Plane load full of the leadership, Hoyer, Schumer, etc.;none of them under seventy five, traveling in style on the tax payers dime.

  2. As long as the JV demonRats led by The Bitter Pill-0si & Far from Prime, NY’s lower than choice, Beef Jerky Chuckee Cheezy Schumer coralling the hogs in the DC Swamp Trough to stuff their homemade Pork Sausage, WeThePeople are as usual the afterthought of their on going scheme to abuse our Great DJT & His Outstanding VP am Mike Pence. THE TEAM of Outstanding Med Research Leaders in one place 24/7 has done what other nations failed to understand. Add the idiots of the few left in the WH Press studio minus Trustworthy John Robert’s, his wife & Godly CBN asking sain, fair concerning questions DJT has the fake news octopusies tenicles all knotted up! All I can say is ” Hail to the Chief! ” No one can put these sore losing press vultures in their rightful place like ” Our Donald! ”.

  3. They can’t work at work so there is no way they can work at home. We need a Congress that accepts the fact that they were put there by the people to do what the people want, not what they want.

  4. EACH OF THESE IDIOTS SHOULD BE FIRED IMMEDIATELY! THEY CANNOT EVEN GET ANYTHING DONE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHEN THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN WASHINGTON D.C. WORKING! THEY CONTINUE TO THINK THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID AND CONTINUE INSULTING OUR INTELLIGENCE EACH AND EVERY DAY THEY RAISE THEIR UGLY HEADS. THE ONLY PERSON IN OUR GOVERNMENT THAT IS HELPING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IS PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP! HE HAS PROVEN HE CAN ACCOMPLISH HIS AGENDA WITHOUT THEM! THIS “RESCUE PACKAGE FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE” IS DISGUSTING! $25 MILLION DOLLARS FOR THE KENNEDY CENTER, CONGRESSIONAL PAY RAISES, ETC. #GOHOMECONGRESS AND DO NOT COME BACK! TRUMP 2020 !!!!

    • Your right there, I know it sounds terrible but sometimes I wish that they would come down with the virus because they’re useless as a tit on a boar

    • Sleeve Eyes, YOU HIT THE NAIL. Polossi can’t do anything by herself, it’s CHUCKY, who gives the orders of what’s to be done! At home her evil daughter will tell her what to do!, that woman doesn’t even know where her head or mind is. Evilness takes over!

    • SleevEyes, YOU HIT THE NAIL. Polossi can’t do anything by herself, it’s CHUCKY, who gives the orders of what’s to be done! At home her evil daughter will tell her what to do!, that woman doesn’t even know where her head or mind is. Evilness takes over!

  5. Remotely? Hell, they don’t do much of anything when they are in chamber. What’s with them with the 2 minute session the other day?

    • You are correct they get little to nothing accomplished when in session. They should definitely not be allowed to work or vote from home. If they are home they will be pushing their nonsense idea/ideals misinformation and lies on their constituents. As well as taking credit for things that the people wanted yet they opposed. Jonathan Gruber said it like it is when creating the unaffordable care act, “Americans are too stupid to notice …”

  6. I think we should get rid of about half of Congress and start fresh. The ideas of the Democrats are insane. The Republicans don’t have the balls to stand up to their crazy ideas. I guess they want to be politically correct but that is not what we want. The Republicans who won’t stand up to the Democrats need to be replaced with people who aren’t afraid to speak up and tell the Dems what their constituents want. From what I hear from friends and relatives across the country the Democrats are deserting their party but nobody will know until election day and then all hell will break lose. Hope this is true.

  7. CONGRESS IS A JOKE, THEY NEVER EVER GET ANYTHING COMPLETED AS IT REALLY SHOULD BE. THEY ACCOMPLISH VERY LITTLE AT WORK, BUT HAVE A GOOD TIME, AND WILL GET NOTHING DONE AT HOME. ONLY REPLACE HALF AND WE WOULD BE BETTER OFF.

  8. Congress in my opinion does not have what it takes . The Socialist Democrats will never do anything for the people and want complete control. The Republicans do not have the spine to stand up and say NO and fight for that belief. We have a Congress that cannot work together and are in the pockets of big money lobbyist.

  9. The truth of the matter is that Congress has near zero ability to work whether they’re “in the office” or remotely. It’s imperative to give the President a line-item veto eliminating all the BS pork that always turns fair legislation into horse shit…like the Dems did to the Economic Bill …

    • I wish President Trump would do exactly what you have stated in your comment. If he would use the Line-Item Veto would be an encouraging move for the American people to see that he is only working for the American people. VETO $25 MILLION DOLLARS FOR THE KENNEDY CENTER, CONGRESSIONAL PAY RAISES, SLUSH FUND FOR CONGRESS, GREEN NEW DEAL, ETC. The American people are FED UP WITH CONGRESS! #CONGRESSGOHOME and do not come back!

  10. Congress has PROVIN TO AMERICA they cannot work together to help Americans. What makes you think they could work alone ? What a bunch of losers we have in Government. Mr. Trump is in the only Dept of Government that has proven to be some what dependable. TRUMP 2020 !!!!
