(ConservativeInsider.org) – Democrats often struggle to maintain any amount of power in the great state of Texas. So, in an effort to make their voice heard this week, over 50 of them fled the state in order to avoid voting on new election reform laws pushed by the state GOP. Somehow, this act of cowardice and abandonment was met with praise by Vice President Kamala Harris.
On Tuesday, July 13, Harris met with the dozens of Progressive Texas lawmakers who flew on private jets from Austin to DC in order to avoid doing their job. Upon her arrival, Harris was met with applause and commended the lawmakers for “defending the right to vote.” She told them, “what you have done comes with great sacrifice, both personal and political.” However, many Texans fail to understand how flying to DC to avoid their taxpayer-funded job while staying at the Washington Plaza Hotel takes courage.
Harris went on to compare the Democrats to famous Americans who have previously fought for the right to vote, shared here by The Recount:

While the Democrats’ obnoxious move did not stop the Senate from passing the election reform bill, the bill did stall in the Texas House as they could not reach a quorum. In response, the House voted to arrest the lawmakers who fled upon their arrival back to the state. Only time will tell what will happen to these lawmakers. At the very least, let’s hope no one else applauds their absurd and spineless move.
