Tulsi Gabbard Bucks Democrat Party, Declines to Back Impeachment

Gabbard was the only Democrat not to vote for impeaching President Trump.

Tulsi Gabbard defied the will of establishment Democrats and fervent liberals, casting a ‘present’ vote on impeaching President Trump in the Democratic Caucus. The House of Representatives passed an impeachment resolution on Wednesday night.

The Hawaii Congresswoman and Presidential candidate isn’t the only Democratic member of Congress to reject impeachment. Democratic Congressmen Jeff Van Drew and Collin Peterson went even further than Tulsi in actively voting ‘no’ on impeachment.

Gabbard is known as a critic of her party’s political establishment, and her refusal to get behind a sham impeachment resolution will only further incense party bigwigs who already have an axe to grind against the anti-war Presidential candidate.

Gabbard has previously wavered on impeachment, expressing differing views as to whether or not to support it. The dissident Democrat has pointed out that most Americans simply don’t care about the alleged byzantine process violations and bureaucratic jockeying leading Democrats have claimed represents impeachable offenses.

In a statement, Gabbard explained her rationale for voting ‘present’ on impeachment, staking out her opposition to President Trump but recognizing that establishment Democrats rigged a “partisan endeavor” for political witch hunt purposes.

Neoliberal Democrats took aim at Tulsi following her refusal to tow the party line Wednesday night.

Gabbard’s far from a truly non-partisan or impartial Democrat, as evidenced by her refusal to fully vote against impeachment. But the viciousness of establishment Democrats toward any member of their own party who refuses to fully sign on to a crooked and totally pointless witch hunt with no chance of success in the Senate shows the total political bankruptcy of their party.

As Democrats maintain an unrelenting focus on nonsense involving foreign aid to Ukraine and deep state bureaucrats hoping to use their positions to take down Trump, Americans are tuning out.

Arizona’s McSally Introduces Resolution to End Senate Salaries Until Stimulus Passes

If the people won’t get paid, neither will their legislators.

Published

on

Arizona Senator Martha McSally has introduced a Senate resolution that would withhold pay from all U.S. Senators until the chamber passes the eagerly-awaited Coronavirus stimulus, termed as ‘TrumpBux’ by some for the one-time payments of $1,200 to almost all American adults.

McSally announced the resolution, titled the ‘No COVID-19 Relief, No Pay Act‘ on Tuesday.

Americans have been largely cut off from everyday economic life by the governmental response to an act of God. It’s all too obvious that federal compensation is required.

If Americans aren’t getting paid, then neither should the Senators failing to support the workers and families who need help making ends meet,” said the freshman Arizona Senator.

Today, I introduced legislation to have Senators’ pay withheld until relief is passed. It is despicable that millions of Americans are without a paycheck in this time of crisis, while the Senate wastes precious time playing political games. The Senate must pass this relief package now in order to get cash straight to the people.”

Fortunately for Senators that would prefer a path of continued political grandstanding, the planned stimulus may be sent to the President’s desk on Wednesday after negotiations between Chuck Schumer and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

The final estimate of the stimulus cost has been gauged at $2 trillion dollars, a sizable package that will be distributed in a combination of TrumpBux and loans to small and big businesses.

There are some similarities between the TrumpBux proposal and universal basic income. The former isn’t ‘universal-‘ individuals who reported more than $75,000 in income on their 2018 tax return will get less money and those who reported more than $100,000’ won’t get anything.

McSally’s proposal ultimately could prove to be the final metaphorical poker stick to the feet of obstructionist Democrats seeking to delay the stimulus package with feckless political gamesmanship.
