On May 15th, Speaker Nancy Pelosi passed a House rule that House Representatives can vote by proxy. She passed this rule even though the founding fathers demanded and expected members of Congress to meet together in person. It has been that way since the first meeting of Congress 231 years ago and has been that way through the yellow fever, the civil war, Spanish Flu, and 9/11. 75 Democrats didn’t bother to show up on May 27th, and voted by proxy, including the Capital District’s very own Paul Tonko.
Please email him and ask him to show up and vote, or leave Congress. If he is too old to show up during the pandemic, he should step down. https://tonko.house.gov/contact/
