Evidently, the fact that Republicans “only” control the House necessitates that they pass bills with Democrats support. Once again, House leaders passed a bill through the House with only a majority of Democrat support.
As we noted yesterday, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation is a corporate welfare bank to subsidize foreign investment. 106 Republicans voted for it while 116 voted against it. This is yet another violation of the precedent to pass bills only with majority Republican support. After all, Republicans control the House for a reason. House leadership has passed bills with Democrat support on a number of other occasions:
This end-run around the majority was perpetrated by all leaders. This includes Cantor and McCarthy. Cantor is openly flaunting his disenfranchisement of conservative voters. Any effort to elect the same leadership slate for next Congress will only serve to disenfranchise the conservative voters who elected a GOP majority. It’s time we get commitments from all members and candidates as to whether they will join the effort to replace the current leadership.
Ask yourselves this question: with hundreds of millions of dollars behind the effort to pass amnesty and comprehensive open borders legislation, will these leaders think twice about passing amnesty with Democrat support?
That’s why primaries are so important. #PrimariesMatter
