If you don’t touch each other and don’t cough on each other, you’re fine.
Why shouldn’t the entire house get together to vote on the stimulus?
Massie says he’d like to explain himself but isn’t being given that opportunity.
Massie requested time to explain himself on the House floor, approaching House Ways and Means Committee ranking member Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas) as debate time dwindled. He was refused.
“Are they afraid of the truth?” Massie wrote on Twitter. “I’ve been told that they don’t even have 1 minute available for me to speak against this bill during the 4 hour debate. The fix is in. If this bill is so great for America, why not allow a vote on it? Why not have a real debate? #SWAMP”
Massie confirmed he would force the roll call vote even after President Trump called for him to be thrown out of the Republican Party for considering the move.
“I swore an oath to uphold the constitution, and I take that oath seriously,” Massie wrote on Twitter. “In a few moments I will request a vote on the CARES Act which means members of Congress will vote on it by pushing ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or ‘present.’”
