Dems Are Now Trying To Blacklist Trump Supporters
This is just another example of just how divided we are as a nation. AOC and some of her ilk are taking their hate to the next level. They have decided that any GOP member that voted against certifying Biden as the president should be blackballed. They intend to go out of their way to block anything they put forward. Because that's just how petty they have decided to be.
"House Democrats are looking for some payback.
Democrats eager to make their GOP colleagues pay for challenging President-elect Joe Biden’s 2020 election win after deadly riots in the Capitol are considering blackballing some of those dissenters by keeping their names off any legislation that has a chance of becoming law.
Multiple Democrats raised the idea Monday that House chairs could keep any legislation co-sponsored by anti-certification Republicans from seeing the light of day. They are also discussing removing the names of those Republicans from bill re-introductions, the latest instance of how pro-Trump Republicans are facing a reckoning in Washington.
Some sources noted House Democratic leadership would have to make that call, since the strategy could seriously impair bipartisan work just as Biden takes office on a pledge to unify a nation that’s more divided than ever. And many Democrats privately noted that it could be a complicated, or even impossible, effort, since more than 130 House Republicans — a majority of the caucus — joined the objection efforts.
That kind of blanket boycott would be a huge and virtually unprecedented move, and has ignited tense discussions across the Democratic Caucus."
"I think we’re all struggling with the same thing — figuring out what the answer is,” a senior Democratic staffer said. “Where is the line in the sand?"
"Republicans have been quick to point out that more than 30 Democrats voted against certifying results in states Trump won in 2017. They also note that lawmakers have raised these procedural disputes of presidential elections since the Nixon era, without the majority party exacting punishment of the opposition lawmakers who participated.
But Democrats have countered that those objections did not ultimately lead to a violent assault on Congress."
Is this the unity Biden was talking about? The two parties are going to disagree, but if Dems decide to make these decisions to silence the GOP then a reckoning will come when they lose the House and they are going to be all sorts of upset when the GOP returns the favor.
