Texas Democrats Walk Off Publicly Subsidized Jobs

Written by Nicholas J. Stojakovich

Let me see if I’ve got this right.

Texas State Democrats are filibustering by walking out and going to Washington D.C. to lobby Congress to get rid of the filibuster so that the federal government can take over their constitutional responsibilities by controlling elections in the state.

The legislation that they refer to as “voter suppression” actually expands voting, giving Texans more time, days, and opportunities to vote.

While ignoring their democratic, constitutional duties that they swore an oath to uphold, they claim that they are “taking a stand” for democracy by “walking out” on democracy in Texas.

These folks’ actions epitomize “oxymoronic.”

They’re banking on the ignorance of the American public. They’re banking on folks not taking time to read the bill. They’re banking on Americans listening just to CNN talking heads who won’t dare to report accurately what the legislation does. CNN won’t discuss accurately what the legislation says because there’s nothing in the language of the legislation, that “suppresses” anyone’s voting rights. There is nothing in the language of this legislation, that is racist or discriminatory toward anyone.

This is a political stunt that is going to backfire big-time because most decent, commonsense Americans are sick of these types of childish tantrums. Americans are sick of the lies perpetrated by people who want to divide this country along racial lines. Americans recognize real bona fide racism when they see it, and the voting bill that passed without the “fugitives” from their publicly subsidized jobs ain’t it.
