INSANITY: 125 Democrats Just Voted To Let 16 Year Olds Cast a Presidential Ballot

The one Republican might surprise you.

Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to reject an amendment to HR1 that would have lowered the voting age to 16, despite 126 House members who voted in favor of the resolution.

As reported by Bloomberg’s Greg Giroux, the amendment that was introduced by Rep. Ayana Pressley (D-Mass.), and was shot down by a count of 126-305.

Lowering the voting age is generally a Democratic Party trope, given that uneducated, idealistic children who have never had to pay massive amounts of taxes imposed by Democrats generally lean left. But one Republican surprisingly voted in favor of the amendment.

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) voted with 125 Democrats to lower the voting age, first noted by columnist Phil Kerpen. Burgess, usually a reliable conservative who is strong on border security and outspokenly anti-amnesty, has not provided an explanation for his vote.

HR1, which is scheduled to be voted upon Friday in the House, is a controversial bill on the whole. The bill would remove the power of states to create voting districts, instead giving that power to “independent” commissions. It would also have wide ranging ramifications in the arena of campaign finance and impose a code of ethics for Supreme Court Justices.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) mocked the bill as a “parade of horrible.”

Turning impeachment into a partisan joke.

Published

Nancy Pelosi refused to rule out trying to impeach President Donald Trump AGAIN if he nominates a Supreme Court justice to replace the recently deceased Ruth Bader Ginsberg before the November election.

Pelosi was speaking to corporate news operative George Stephanopoulos on Sunday.

Well, we have our options… We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now.” Pelosi was speaking about the possibility of impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr as well as Trump, who has increasingly become a source of extreme frustration for D.C. liberals who desire a Justice Department beholden to their policy priorities.

President Trump has confirmed that he plans on nominating a Justice to fill the vacancy, revealing he’s planning on selecting a woman for the court seat at a North Carolina rally over the weekend.

If Trump nominates a justice who is confirmed and goes on to secure a second term in the November presidential election, a hypothetical second impeachment proceeding could set up a truly hilarious scenario. Democrats would be trying to impeach a President who just secured victory in a democratic election, truly going above and beyond in trying to override the decision of the people.

Perhaps the impeachment powers of the House of Representatives are destined to become merely another partisan, political trick utilized by the Democratic Party against any Republican President. This could basically turn the American political system into a de facto parliamentary system in which the opposition party seeks to impeach the head of state on a routine, political basis.
