The Democrats have a sliver of a majority in Congress and they have commandeered every level of power. In Texas, the Republican majority in the Texas Legislature is overwhelming. The people elected a Republican majority in Texas – that is the will of the people. Instead, 58 Texas Democrat runaways jetted to DC on chartered private jets to illegally stop vote on new state voting bills.
The Democrats cannot win without cheating — which is why they are unhinged in their opposition to election integrity laws.
Totalitarian tantrum ……

Texas’ Abbott says Dems who ‘fled’ state over elections bill will be arrested upon return
Republicans argue the contentious bill would provide greater election security
By Edmund DeMarche | Fox News
Gov Greg Abbott slams Democrats leaving the state to protest voter integrity
Texas Governor explains Texas’ voting laws on ‘The Ingraham Angle’
Gov. Greg Abbott, the Texas Republican, criticized state Democrats who fled to Washington, D.C., on Monday in an effort to deprive the Legislature of a quorum, thus the ability to vote on the GOP’s sweeping elections overhaul bill.
Abbott appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” on Monday to defend the bill and say the missing lawmakers will be arrested upon their return to the state. He said members of the Texas House of Representatives who are still in the state can call for the arrests of their colleagues who do not show up to vote. The one caveat is the arrest has to be made in the state.
“Once they step back into the state they will be arrested and brought back to the Capitol and we will be conducting business,” he said.
Republicans argue the contentious bill would provide greater election security, while Democrats charge it would suppress voter turnout of minorities.
The exodus was the second time that Democratic lawmakers have staged a walkout on the voting overhaul, a measure of their fierce opposition to proposals they say will make it harder for young people, people of color and people with disabilities to vote.
But like last month’s effort, there remains no clear path for Democrats to permanently block the voting measures, or a list of other contentious GOP-backed proposals up for debate.
“We have special sessions that last 30 days,” Abbott said. “And the governor calls them, and I will continue calling special session after special session because over time it is going to continue until they step up to vote.”
As they arrived in Washington Monday evening, the lawmakers said they would not be swayed.

“We are determined to kill this bill,” said state Rep. Chris Turner, who said he and his colleagues were prepared to run out the clock on a special session that ends early next month.
