They pulled this same stunt a couple times a few years ago. Walked out to prevent having a quorum for a vote. Some even went to OK and NM.
I believe they should be removed from office when they pull this stunt. They were hired by their constituents to do a representative’s job. They are paid by all the Texas taxpayers.
I wonder how Nancy Pelosi would handle US House Republicans pulling the same stunt to block her stuff from coming to a vote. Or, Chuck Schumer in the Senate. Not having a quorum, however distasteful, can work. It can be a method to bring the Biden parade to a halt. But can also have a wicked toll.
Our “main stream media” lionizes this action by Democrats, but crucifies Republicans for the same. But national political temperament may not be so easily swayed this time.
