Nancy Pelosi has been re-elected as Speaker of the House. She isn’t going anywhere. Her district loves her, and she is in control. She won with 216 votes to the 209 votes of Republican challenger Kevin McCarthy, also of California. A close win, but a win nevertheless.
Yesterday One America News posted an article about one aspect of that vote. The article illustrates how desperate Speaker Pelosi was to win that vote.
The article reports:
Nancy Pelosi has shown yet another example of her hypocrisy regarding COVID-19 lockdown orders.
Under quarantine for coronavirus, Americans are not allowed to travel, visit friends, family or even go to work in some cases. If you’re a Democrat in Congress, however, it’s your “congressional duty” to break quarantine, enter the chamber and re-elect radical Democrat Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker.
According to a report Sunday, that’s the example the California Democrat set for Americans amid her narrow re-election to the leading role in the lower chamber of Congress. The report noted that in an effort to win a tough battle for re-election and compensate for seats lost by Democrats, Pelosi encouraged a handful of coronavirus-positive Democrats to break their quarantine in order to vote for her.
For example, Democrat Wisconsin Rep. Gwen Moore entered the chamber to vote for Pelosi despite announcing she had tested positive for coronavirus. Meanwhile, Pelosi appeared to amplify coronavirus concerns as she was sworn in as House Speaker on Sunday.
We are rapidly becoming a country of ‘rules for thee, but not for me.’ We as voters are responsible for the leadership we elect. It is time to re-evaluate who we are electing. If we continue on our present path, we will have two classes or people–rulers in power who make the rules and don’t have to follow them and those not in power who are weighed down by excessive rules. It really is our choice.
