When Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) proposed a police reform bill in the Senate, Democrats brushed it aside without so much as a consideration to debate the legislation.
When Scott offered Democrats an opportunity to add amendments to it to address their concerns, they rejected.
It now seems as though it was all planned, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) rammed through yet another partisan bill in the House she knows will have no chance to pass in the Senate.
All About Headlines
For Pelosi, this was about nothing more than getting some press focused on Democrats.
She did not ask for any input from Republicans on this bill; just as she did with her HEROES Act, the legislation was penned by Democrats only.
This is how Pelosi gets to dictate the narrative in the media that Democrats are trying to promote police reform and Republicans are trying to prevent it.
The media won’t report how Scott’s legislation died on the floor because Democrats refused to debate or participate, only that Senator McConnell (R-KY) will refuse to put their House bill on the floor of the Senate for debate.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) stated, “This moment in our great nation’s history demands that we work together across the aisle to fashion legislation that works, legislation that makes a real and lasting difference.
“Unfortunately, Democrats haven’t done that. They show no signs of wanting to do that.”
This Is NOT How It Works
Democrats are hijacking our government right now, which is astonishing considering they only have the majority in the House.
The American people need to pay attention to what is going on right now because this gets much scarier if Democrats have both the House and Senate as well as the White House.
Imagine a House majority that does not need input from Republicans to get legislation passed.
Imagine a Senate of 60 or more Democrats that can put anything it wants on the floor without even considering input from Republicans.
Then imagine a White House with a Democrat president that will sign just about anything they put in front of him.
That is exactly where we are headed if Republicans don’t show up during the 2020 election.
Our country is literally fighting for its life right now and if Democrats manage to sweep the table in the primary election, we will have a country that would have our Founding Fathers rolling over in their graves.
