The Texas Democrat Congressional delegation has finally had enough of Joe Biden and they are letting the world know it once and for all. Sleepy Joe was sent a letter, wherein he was asked to meet with the lawmakers of this state as soon as possible. This news was made public a week ago and Biden still has yet to accept the invitation for a meeting.
These Texas state Democrats decided to run from their jobs as legislators, hoping to be embraced by all of the D.C. Democrats. Now, their ranks are starting to splinter, predictably so. It’s easy to see why they are frustrated, as they have already done everything in their power. They have already secured various meetings with senators to push passage of the For the People Act in the Senate, provided interviews to cable news stations and held press conferences.
They were also sure to do plenty of tweeting and fundraising. Biden is still not willing to have a sit down with them and tensions are now running very high. Statesman has more:
“During a Zoom conversation with U.S. Rep Lloyd Doggett of Austin, state Rep. Richard Peña Raymond of Laredo vented about the holdup.
“He won’t meet with us on Zoom like this, and I’m trying to be tactful, but I don’t know how else to say it, man. I’m just pissed off at this point. He doesn’t give us the respect the way you have,” Raymond told Doggett.”
House Majority Whip James Clyburn and Kamala Harris are the only ones who have been willing to meet with them, which does not seem like much of a victory in their eyes. In fact, it is more like a consolation prize. Biden has little to no interest in spending quality time with any of them. The Texas Democrats probably should have considered this possibility before they embarked on their D.C. trip.
They had hoped to arrive in Washington and drum up support among the senators for the For The People Act that is currently floundering. Biden can’t be bothered at the moment because he is more focused on trying to push his woebegone infrastructure bill through. As long as he continues to ignore the flea baggers, these issues are only going to get worse and worse.
When Richard Pena Raymond appeared on CNN, he was quite annoyed by Biden’s strategy. You know the routine already, he was going on and on about voting suppression laws and southern states. Raymond also claimed that voters were being suppressed all over the country and these issues are no longer limited to the south alone. The CNN host wanted to know if this was merely a political stunt.
It’s a good question, for sure. Raymond, for his past, showcased the usual Democrat cluelessness, comparing the party’s current actions with Abraham Lincoln. They need to snap out of their reverie but they are too in love with themselves to do so. It did not take long before Raymond was trying to change the subject, deflecting to the supposed punishment that Texas lawmakers deserve for allowing the state to freeze to death this past winter.
Even though there are no Democrats that can be identified as powerful lawmakers, they think that they are the ones who are going to save this country from certain ruin. As more Democrats continue to break ranks and work with Republicans when it comes to election integrity legislation, these efforts will all be for naught.
“We do desire a more productive day." When the TX House did roll call this morning, they had 93 members — which means they still need 7 more Democrats to make quorum. Republicans say they are hopeful they'll make quorum soon, saying they're running out of time. @KHOU pic.twitter.com/3XpGunp5dr

This political stunt proves one thing: the Democrats are not the party of science and they are not ready to take on a task of this magnitude. This little vacation has led to a number of COVID-19 infections, causing Kamala Harris to require a test to make sure she did not have a breakthrough infection. Biden is not going to meet under these circumstances, despite Beto’s best efforts (and big donations). The flea baggers’ 15 minutes of fame is almost over!
