As only the freshman Texas Millennial Republican could do, Dan Crenshaw gives frightening preview if Democrats win White House and both houses of Congress
At yesterday’s 14th congressional district virtual debate between Congresswoman Lauren Underwood and Republican Jim Oberweis, these quotes was said from Oberweis why he decided to run for Congress in February of 2019:
“When Lauren Underwood started voting like a radical socialist, I decided it was time to run for the 14th Congressional District.
“Her values are not our values.”Jim Oberweis, 9/1/20 per Daily Herald
Towards the end of the just over an hour long head-to-head virtual debate, sponsored by the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce, Underwood responded:
“I think it’s really telling that my opponent’s decided to use his time to distort and attack my record.
“My record is clear.”Lauren Underwood, 9/1/20 per Daily Herald
What Underwood’s record and clarity means is an open topic, and voters applying discernment with the truth will decide who wins the 14th district, as well as the other three Republican targeted congressional seats in northern Illinois, the 6th between Congressman Sean Casten and Republican Jeanne Ives, and the 17th between Congresswoman Cheri Bustos and Republican Esther Joy King.
So, to bring clarity to what the House Democratic majority of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has really done, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R, TX-02) released this nearly 2 1/2 minute video encapsulating what the House Democratic Majority has accomplished in the legislation passed from the House.
At the 14th congressional district debate, Underwood again reverted to her overuse of describing her record as passing “bipartisan” legislation, which McHenry County Blog has been successfully challenging for over a year.
Similar to a graphic done last fall, McHenry County Blog has charted the 10 bills covered in the Crenshaw video in the order covered, to determine how many Republican members of the House voted for final passage of each bill highlighted by Crenshaw:
|H.R. 1||The For the People Act||0|
|H.R. 3||Elijah Cummings Lower Drug Costs Now Act||2|
|H.R. 8||Bipartisan Background Checks Act||8|
|H.R. 6||American Dream and Promise Act||7|
|H.R. 9||Climate Action Now act||3|
|H.R. 2474||Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act||5|
|H.R. 1644||Save the Internet Act||1|
|H.R. 5||Equality Act||8|
|H.R. 582||Raise the Wage Act||3|
|H.R. 51||Washington, D.C. Admission Act (D.C. Statehood)||0|
So none of the 10 bills surpassed positive support from at least 10 Republicans, and 2 of them had zero Republicans support (H.R. 51 had 1 Democrat vote against D.C. Statehood, otherwise, it would have been a straight party line vote like H.R. 1).
So for this top 10 list, Underwood shown again her claims of bipartisan legislation are thrown away.
The Crenshaw video is something all Republican challengers for the U.S. House should keep handy, in order to remind themselves, and voters, what this election will be about, and if Democrats win the Presidency and both houses of Congress, the radical change in store for our country.
And, it looks like Oberweis is right about Underwood and the radical socialism record she has accomplished while in Congress.
