    What a big lie. The GOP deliberately infected no one. Who did that - thousands DEAD from it - was the Democratic governors of NY, NJ and California ordering that nursing homes with poor elderly people MUST accept infected people over the management's object - killing THOUSANDS - minimally.

    Don't pretend you give a damn about covid-19 - or link to your post ranting about the protesters and rioters violating stay-home orders. Hell, you can't even criticize them for arson, looting and beating defenseless old people.

    NOT ONE progressive on this forum can bring themselves to criticize the protesters/looters for violating stay home, wear masks and social distancing orders. That's because they all know all this about covid-19 is a lie. Rather, they believe that by devastating the economy the harm Trump. There's nothing more to it.
    Russia's candidate for U.S. President Hilary Clinton lost in 2016. Will China's candidate for U.S. President Joe Biden win in 2020?

    The Supreme Court already answered that question in United States v. Ballin, 144 U.S. 1 (1892)

    The Constitution provides that "a majority of each [house] shall constitute a quorum to do business." In other words, when a majority are present the house in a position to do business. Its capacity to transact business is then established, created by the mere presence of a majority, and does not depend upon the disposition or assent or action of any single member or fraction of the majority present. All that the Constitution requires is the presence of a majority, and when that majority are present, the power of the house arises.
    There must be a majority physically present in order to constitute a quorum. Proxy votes in either house of Congress is a violation of the US Constitution.

    Indeed. You would think Pelosi would know this.

    It requires two-thirds of Congress and 38 States to change the US Constitution. She is compelled by her own oath of office to comply with the US Constitution. She should face impeachment for her blatant disregard for the US Constitution and abuse of power.

    Repukkkes cast ZERO doubt on wanting a civil war within and between the 50 states. They want NO elections, Martial Law, and kill as many Democrats as they can with Covid.

    GOPutins prefer KKKonfederate Nazi militia cucksters in full riot gear and weapons of war threatening law enforcement officials, as well as spitting in the faces of LEOs without a mask.

    **** the GOPricks, **** Traitor Trump

    Think again. Members of Congress can be forced, at gun-point if necessary, to attend Congress in person in order to form a quorum. That is also included within the US Constitution, you might want to read it some day.
