Texas Senate Passes Voting Reform Legislation Amid Democrat Filibuster

Texas Democrats are doing everything in their power to stop legislation from going through.

As the entire country knows by now, House Democrats fled the state so they would not have to vote on a piece of legislation they know they could not defeat.

Senate Democrats tried to block the bill by conducting a 15-hour filibuster, but it was all for naught.

Get to Work

Texas Senate Democrats did everything they could procedurally do to block the legislation.

But, after a 15-hour filibuster, the legislation was finally brought to a vote and passed.

With the voting bill finally getting through the Senate, it will now be passed to the House for further challenges.

The problem is not that Republicans do not have enough votes, because they do.

The problem is that Democrats are trying to block the quorum needed to get the bill on the floor for a vote.

Dozens of House Democrats fled the state to D.C. so a quorum could not be held.

The party has tried to hold them up as heroes, but they are cowards. It is as simple as that.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) has asked conservatives not to judge the Dems too harshly, as he noted he may now use the same move to block the reconciliation package.

I, for one, hope he does not because while I don’t want to see that bill passed, I would hate to see Graham provide the reason the Texas Democrats can no longer be called out on this front.

In an effort to bring the Texas Democrats back to session, Republican House Speaker Dade Phelan has signed warrants for the rogue Democrats to be arrested.

While they would not be sent to prison, they would be brought to chambers to allow the quorum to begin.

Phelan’s spokesperson, Enrique Marquez, stated, “Earlier today, the House Sergeant-at-Arms deputized members of Texas law enforcement to assist in the House’s efforts to compel a quorum.

“That process will begin in earnest immediately.”

    1. Yeah, Jeffrey, it is about time these democrats got rounded up and made to do t heir job.

      1. A Democrat elected to an office actually doing the job the Citizens he represents elected him/her/it to do….. What a novel concept…. and extremely rare.

    1. They have been breaking the law for quite some time now. Just when will our justice system charge an try them like the criminals that they are. People like Piglosi can only be reelected by fraud and deceit, plus blackmail among other crimes.

  1. Those “DirtocRATS” who fled to D.C. are a bunch of gutless, spineless, disgusting cowards!! Lock ’em up along w/ Hillary, Hunter and BOZO Joe!!! NO “care packages,” please!!!

  2. The moment they left the state was an “I QUIT MY JOB” resignation. That gives enployer freedom to hire new employees to keep his business productive.

  3. One wonders! Are these democrats actually representing the people that voted them into office or are they trying to protect the illegal voting systems that got them into office. If new election laws are enacted how many of these self centered democrats would get reelected? How long have these crooked and rigged voting elections been conducted, with no discovery, till this last election?

    1. they need to be dead and left in the streets to rot like the rat rodents they are..evry single one of them!

  4. Bill they are trying to protect the illegal voting system that got them into office. Colorado has the same problem.
    Our Previous Governor used Fraud to be come a Governor twice and now he used Fraud to become a Senator in Washington DC. He has been a Liar and a Thief all of his Terms in Colorado. He leaves the Western Slope alone has he has been warned that should he come over to the Western Slop of Colorado he will be ushered out of the State with A Gun. The Liberal Liar .

    1. Wholeheartedly agree. As a Colorado resident, demoncraps have done Nothing for Colorado. Self- absorbed, power hungry frauds. I could go on forever,but I won’t. Well put,my friend!

THESE POLITICIANS HAVE BEEN (UNFORTUNATELY) VOTED IN BY THE PEOPLE TO DO A JOB????? SIMPLE…..”NO WORK….NO PAY”…..THIS GOES FOR ALL DEPARTMENTS OF GOVERNMENT!!!!!!!!!! Nancy Pelosi (AND OTHERS) TOOK ALMOST THE WHOLE YEAR OFF……BUT THEY WERE PAID!!!!!!!! RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!! I DO NOT ANY OTHER PERSON WHO DOES NOT WORK AND GETS PAID ANYWAY!!!!!!!!!

  8. Thank goodness, now we can rest better knowing that our elections laws will make voting fraud harder to accomplish.

  9. I thought that it was to the point where reserve was seized and they couldn’t get their hands on anymore of our money. Is this still part of the movie. I think if people aren’t awake yet, they are not ever going to wake up. Thank you all for all you have and are doing. Good bless all of you. I’m still praying no matter what.

  10. They should be considered unemployed and should not get any pay for the time they are/were gone.

  11. Did all of you vote in the last elections people need to vote every time or demorats will stay in office. We need a good reputable person to run as a republican. Woody
