SHOT. . .
Texas House Demo Gene Wu, who we’ve been posting about for weeks now as he’s in D.C. on a flee-ibuster to prevent legislation he doesn’t like from passing, called on his Republican colleagues to do more to help with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in his state:
What are Texans' Republican leaders doing to help with the new COVID19 hospitalization crisis? — NOTHING
Governor Abbott can find $250 million for "THE WALL", but there's no money for dying Texans.https://t.co/YBjmtEN9wa

CHASER. . .
Well, here’s Texas House Republican Matt Schaefer reminding Wu that because he and his fellow Dems are hiding in D.C., there is no quorum and they can’t vote on how to spend “$17 billion in federal COVID relief money that hasn’t been appropriated yet”:
Actually there is about $17 billion in federal COVID relief money that hasn’t been appropriated yet. We will need a quorum to do the appropriating. But you walked off the job…#txlege https://t.co/2pWXM9BAzP

Texans should DEMAND that these Dems get back to work.
