Just when you thought that the do-nothing House Democrats couldn’t do less, they prove you wrong:

The House will not come back to Washington next week, House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer told reporters Tuesday, reversing an announcement he made on a Democratic Caucus conference call the previous day.

The change of course comes as members expressed concern about returning to Washington while some areas in the region are developing into coronavirus hot spots. Hoyer said the decision to delay the return, which had been briefly scheduled for May 4, came after he talked with the Capitol physician, who said he recommended against taking the risk involved in members returning.

What a bunch of do-nothings. This isn’t democracy in action. It’s Democrat inaction. What’s worst is that Pelosi and Hoyer seem intent on leaping from one crisis to the next.

Ed has this right, too:

This is nothing more than Pelosi trying to preserve her leverage through the use of the “unanimous consent” parliamentary maneuver to keep the House from debating the issues properly. And what about the vigorous congressional oversight Pelosi demanded in CARES I? Pelosi claimed that as her big win for delaying that relief bill by several days, and yet hasn’t bothered to show up to conduct any oversight in almost a month since.

This is nothing less than an abdication of office in the face of a national emergency. If Congress needs to protect itself from the COVID-19 pandemic, they could have appropriated money to rent out a local five-star hotel for weeks on end, disinfected it, and then used it as a dorm for its members, complete with quarantine options if necessary. Meeting rooms could have been used for committee hearings or simple negotiations with all social distancing protocols observed. Capitol Hill has been closed to outsiders, so that isn’t an issue, and Congress could have arranged for reserved buses to transport members back and forth between the hotel and the Capitol.

Why hasn’t Adam Schiff started investigating how COVID-19 got started? Why hasn’t the Oversight and Reform Committee started looking into the corruption within the FBI regarding Michael Flynn? The answer is simple. Both investigations would expose the Democrats’ corruption.

The hammer just dropped:


Good for Mitch McConnell for calling out the Do-Nothing Democrats. If Democrats aren’t willing to serve in times of crisis, whether in the House or Senate, they need to resign immediately. If they won’t resign, then they need to be involuntarily retired this November. This isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s for patriots. That doesn’t describe many Democrats these days.
