The recent post by @unsk‘s “Biden and the Stalinist Thug Dems are Coming for your Guns” discusses HR127, legislation introduced by Rep. Shiela Jackson Lee (D-TX 18th) on Jan 4, the first regular order day of the current congress. Noting the bill number, I was curious as to how many bills were introduced on the first day of the session. Turns out there were 187, starting with HR1, Rep. Sarbane’s (D-MD 3rd) reintroduced proposal to revamp (read: trash) our electoral system previously discussed by Unsk back in 2019.
The cavalcade of legislative vomit wrapped up that day with HR187 introduced by Rep. Julia Brownley (D-CA 26th), which seeks to bestow permanent resident alien status on one Victoria Lopez, who apparently is not supposed to be in the country given that one of the bill’s provisions orders the Secretary of Homeland Security to rescind her deportation order.
Quite the busy day, the House opened with prayer at 10 a.m. and adjourned shortly after 5 p.m., 187 bills introduced in 420 minutes. Good substantive discussion of more than two minutes each, except for all the other things which took up the august body’s time.
They have not been asleep at the lawmaking wheel – certainly not! This past Thursday, the House was in session from 9 a.m. to 9:04 a.m., a solid four minutes during which bills HR496 through HR633 were introduced. Four minutes for 137 pieces of legislation, that’s efficiency for you!
With 633 bills in the first month, what could possibly go wrong?Published in
