Texas leaders were outraged when a group of Democrats fled the state to protest.
These Texas Democrats knew they didn’t have the votes to stop passage of new voting bills.
So, like spoiled children, they ran off in order to prevent Texas from getting work done.
But Texas Republicans are not cowering to their pathetic stunts. Gov. Abbott has promised to arrest every Democrat that fled their duties.
The Texas state house voted to send law enforcement to get them.
And now, the Texas speaker is making sure these Democrats have a direct flight home.
From Fox News:
Texas’ Republican House speaker said Thursday he plans to charter a plane that will be on “standby” in Washington, D.C., waiting to bring home Democratic lawmakers who fled the state to avoid voting on an election integrity bill.
“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,” Speaker Dade Phelan said in a statement. “The State of Texas is waiting.”
Texas Speaker Dade Phelan is ordering House Democrats to return to Austin to continue their job.
To make that happen, he has chartered a flight that is on “standby” waiting for these lawmakers to come back.
You might be wondering why he is even doing this. These partisan Democrats won’t listen to him, right?
But this move is pretty important. It shows these fleeing Democrats—and the country—that the Texas House will not shut down because these liberals are throwing a pity party.
Had the Texas House closed, Democrats would have won. The fate of these much-needed voter integrity bills would have been left uncertain.
But Speaker Phelan is making it very clear that Texas is not going to shut down, just because these Democrats wanted attention.
It is a message to the radical left that they cannot manipulate the Texas government. Residents elected these officials to serve the public. And the majority of Texas lawmakers will not let a small band of Democrats get their way.
For far too long, Republicans have folded to corrupt liberals that filibuster while campaigning to kill the filibuster. They just shrugged their shoulders and let Democrats make a mockery of our country.
If we want to save this country, Republicans need to take a stand. They cannot budge, especially in the face of idiots, like these Texas Democrats.
Now, if only every other Republican, in states and D.C., learns this lesson.
Who is going to win this standoff?
- Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan is ordering fleeing Democrats back.
- He has chartered them a plane which is on standby.
- Texas Republicans refuse to buckle, as Democrats throw a temper tantrum.
