The Three Stooges Were Funny: Wisconsin goes One better - We have Four just plain SAD Republican GOP Trump Stooges!

 

Wisconsin Republicans in Congress will vote to oust Liz Cheney from GOP leadership after her rebukes of Trump

Craig Gilbert

WASHINGTON - At least four of Wisconsin’s five Republican U.S. House members say they’ll vote to oust Liz Cheney from her party leadership position in Congress after Cheney's ongoing rebukes of former President Donald Trump. And that includes at least one lawmaker who publicly supported Cheney on a previous challenge to her leadership in February: Mike Gallagher. The other three are Glenn Grothman, Bryan Steil and Scott Fitzgerald. (Another Wisconsin Republican, Tom Tiffany, had not responded as of Tuesday morning to a reporters' query).

Are you a billionaire? You should be required to work 4 weeks (40 hour week) a year for $15 an hour. You get to pick the JOB!

It will solve the shortage of people in the service industry or many other shortages and perhaps bring about a little humility :)

What does SMALL-Government mean?

 

Remember when I-35 collapsed in Minnesota and so many were killed.  The small-government advocates would take the approach, I guess, is that government should not build bridges and certainly not maintain them.

"Bridges" is ironic in the context of social need and social meaning!

H.R.1 - For the People Act of 2019 - an act to preserve our democracy

 H.R.1 - Save Democracy by the Majority

Shown Here:

Passed House (03/08/2019)

For the People Act of 2019

This bill addresses voter access, election integrity, election security, political spending, and ethics for the three branches of government.

Specifically, the bill expands voter registration and voting access and limits removing voters from voter rolls.

The bill provides for states to establish independent, nonpartisan redistricting commissions.

The bill also sets forth provisions related to election security, including sharing intelligence information with state election officials, protecting the security of the voter rolls, supporting states in securing their election systems, developing a national strategy to protect the security and integrity of U.S. democratic institutions, establishing in the legislative branch the National Commission to Protect United States Democratic Institutions, and other provisions to improve the cybersecurity of election systems.

This bill addresses campaign spending, including by expanding the ban on foreign nationals contributing to or spending on elections; expanding disclosure rules pertaining to organizations spending money during elections, campaign advertisements, and online platforms; and revising disclaimer requirements for political advertising.

This bill establishes an alternative campaign funding system for certain federal offices. The system involves federal matching of small contributions for qualified candidates.

This bill sets forth provisions related to ethics in all three branches of government. Specifically, the bill requires a code of ethics for federal judges and justices, prohibits Members of the House from serving on the board of a for-profit entity, expands enforcement of regulations governing foreign agents, and establishes additional conflict-of-interest and ethics provisions for federal employees and the White House.

The bill also requires candidates for President and Vice President to submit 10 years of tax returns.

House Democrats passed sweeping voting and ethics legislation Wednesday over unanimous Republican opposition, advancing to the Senate what would be the largest overhaul of the U.S. election law in at least a generation.

House Resolution 1, which touches on virtually every aspect of the electoral process, was approved on a near party-line 220-210 vote. It would restrict partisan gerrymandering of congressional districts, strike down hurdles to voting and bring transparency to a murky campaign finance system that allows wealthy donors to anonymously bankroll political causes.

The bill is a powerful counterweight to voting rights restrictions advancing in Republican-controlled statehouses across the country in the wake of Donald Trump's repeated false claims of a stolen 2020 election. Yet it faces an uncertain fate in the Democratic-controlled Senate, where it has little chance of passing without changes to procedural rules that currently allow Republicans to block it. ...
