Texas Dems Respond to State Speaker's Offer to Charter Plane: 'Save Your Money'

Source: Newsweek

The Texas Democrats who fled the state to stop a vote on a contentious election bill have turned down state Speaker of the House Dade Phelan's offer to charter a plane to return the group from Washington D.C. back to Texas.

"The Speaker should save his money. We won't be needing a plane anything soon, as our work to save democracy from the Trump Republicans is just getting started," the Democrats said in a statement.

"We're not going anywhere and suggest instead the speaker end this charade of a session, which is nothing more than a monthlong campaign commercial for Gov. Abbott's re-election. The speaker should adjourn the House Sine Die."

-snip-

"Sine Die" is a Latin governmental phrase that means "without day." It means to indicate a final adjournment of a congressional session.

1. If you were a Texas Democrat would you really get on an airplane paid for by repukes?

Plus the pilot probably would have a parachute!!!!

8. Yeah, sure, right, TX Dems really want to be humiliated by TX GQP

the reason they left is that they were hearing that the GQP wanted to lock them in their chambers until they passed a voting bill. Dems were like not no but hell no. Now they are expected to come back with their tails between their legs?

This is the very definition of Charlie vs Lucy.
