Proxy vote lies

Empower Wisconsin | March 18, 2022

MADISON — A lot of Americans joke that the unpopular U.S. Congress is “non-essential.” U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher believes the Dem-led rules prolonging proxy voting and remote hearings are only proving those suspicions right.

The Allouez Republican has long called proxy voting unconstitutional, a pandemic allowance ostensibly in the name of COVID-19 mitigation that has been exploited by members of congress.

U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) argues the rules have made truants out of House members.

“Remote hearings have done more to create an echo chamber and promote partisanship than any other congressional rule. One could argue that in-person collaboration has become relic of a bygone era,” Foxx wrote in an op-ed for The Hill on House Rules Committee Member Day, focused on assessing the results and challenges of remote proceedings.

Last year, Gallagher  introduced a resolution that would end proxy voting. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her crew of liberal part-timers just can’t quit the conveniences they’ve created for themselves under the guise of COVID safety.

During his testimony Thursday, Gallagher slammed members for lying and abusing the proxy voting process, not for COVID-19, but for fundraising, attending political gatherings, or even going torocket launches.

Watch the congressman’s testimony here.
