14 Senators Cosponsor Hawley’s Motion to Censure Chuck Schumer for Supreme Court Threats

Schumer threatened the justices in unprecedented terms.

Published

Fourteen Republican Senators have agreed to cosponsor a measure that would formally censure Chuck Schumer for threatening two Supreme Court Justices.

Schumer threatened justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch earlier this month while speaking at a pro-abortion rally, stating that they would “pay the price” for potential pro-life rulings that would approve new abortion restrictions passed by conservative state legislators.

I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

The comments drew wide rebuke from across the political spectrum, with Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts even issuing a formal statement rebuking Schumer’s heated language towards the judges.

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley announced that he would prepare a motion to formally censure Schumer for his remarks the day after.

The resolution has now been formally submitted to the Senate. If passed, it would mean the chamber officially “censures and condemns in the strongest possible terms the Senator from New York, Mr. Schumer, for his threatening statements against As-4sociate Justice Neil M. Gorsuch and Associate Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh.”

The following Republican Senators are cosponsoring the censure proposal: Mike Braun, Martha McSally, Thom Tillis, Tim Scott, Rick Scott, Ben Sasse, David Perdue, Kelly Loeffler, Mike Lee, Joni Ernst, Jim Inhofe, Steve Daines, Ted Cruz, and Kevin Cramer.

The passage of the censure motion depends on the political whims of Mitch McConnell. Its prospects range from doubtful to slim, but in any case the motion represents a serious embarrassment for Schumer. The Democratic Senate Minority Leader backed down after being blasted for his anti-judiciary remarks, admitting that he spoke in rash and “angry” terms.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks

Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.

Published

Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.

If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.

The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
