The Texas Dems who hopped on a private “Booze Plane” for a pointless and costly PR stunt in DC, are facing yet another round of fury.
The group took off from Texas in an effort to avoid “quorum.”
Quorum is the minimum number of representatives needed to be present in the House for any decisions taken there to be valid.
The Dems were hoping to sabotage a vote on an election integrity bill, focusing on “Voter ID.”
It didn’t work. The bill passed.
Mind you, polling shows that the vast majority of Americans approve of voter ID. So much so, it’s actually a rare “bipartisan” issue.
Governor Abbott promises that the Dems will be arrested upon their return to Texas.
Here’s what Governor Greg Abbott has to say about the taxpayer vacation:
“If these people want to be hanging out wherever they’re hanging out on this taxpayer-paid junket, they’re going to have to be prepared to do it for well over a year. As soon as they come back in the state of Texas, they will be arrested, they will be cabined inside the Texas Capitol until they get their job done.”
The House Speaker is now demanding they return to the state.
House Speaker Dade Phelan said Thursday that he will charter a plane Saturday from Washington, D.C., to Austin to retrieve the Democrats who fled to the nation’s capital to avoid voting on an elections bill that they say would restrict voting rights.
“I am demanding all of our colleagues in D.C. to contact my staff immediately in order to secure their seat on the plane and return to Austin in order to do the state’s business,” Phelan, a Beaumont Republican, said in a statement. “The State of Texas is waiting.”
But they’re refusing to come back.
I guess they’re just going to live in the swamp now? Good. Let them rot there and remove all of them from their post, and elect people who will actually serve and do their jobs.
But, the House Speaker isn’t done with these Dem bums quite yet.
Now, he’s demanding that these unprofessional fools pay back the good people of Texas.
He wants them to return their $221 daily stipend to the Treasury.
Western Journal reported that Republican Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan told his Democrat colleagues who are engaging in a political stunt in Washington to return their $221 daily stipend to the State Treasury.
“While these Texas Democrats collect taxpayer money as they ride on private jets to meet with the Washington elite, those who remain in the chamber await their return to begin work on providing our retired teachers a 13th check, protecting our foster kids, and providing taxpayer relief,” Phelan said in a Wednesday statement shared on Twitter.
“Those who are intentionally denying quorum should return their per diem to the State Treasury immediately upon receipt.”

The TDS is so strong with these Dems, that they’re still referencing “President Trump” as the reason they won’t come back to Texas.
They claim this is how they’re fighting “Trump Republicans.”
We’ll see what happens when polling shows that Texans are furious – because I’d imagine that’s how it will shake out.
I have a feeling when that happens, they”ll find their way back home.
