    Mr. Speaker, Im glad that the majority of this body can read the bill put before them. It seems pretty clear we all want this resolution passed. I’m glad, it looks like most of us aren’t white nationalists. This is a great win for us. I yield

    Mr. Speaker, the gentleman doesn’t care about the costs. He just wants to make sure votes are surpressed. He is against this bill because he doesn’t want more voters. Plain and simple. Voter ID protects against fraud. Giving free voter ID protects against voter suppression. Automatic registration let’s more people vote. I’m not sure what’s so controversial about letting more people vote. I yield

    James Hill (D-IL) Mr. Speaker, This motion to table is a disgrace, Let me say it to his face, Alt-right and white nats have no place, To have any space, In our society trying to look past race. I yield. Patricia Vanderbeak (R-MI) Mr. Speaker, I concur with the sentiments expressed by the gentleman from Illinois. Quibbling over 'alt-right' vis-a-vis 'white nationalist' or 'white supremacist' is akin to debating about angels on the head of a needle. They're all one and the same and should be condemned. I see no reason to table this resolution for failing to accept the proposed amendment. I yield.

    Jack Swanner The Office of Gov. Jack Swanner For Immediate Release Austin, TX – Governor Jack Swanner spoke to the press at a signing ceremony for the FY2020 Appropriations Act. “Today is a big day for our region. This budget – which passed unanimously through the Regional Legislature – is the first step of a long-term vision of prosperity and security for our citizens. While it accomplishes several immediate priorities such as providing financial assistance to our farmers and building a wall along our southern border, it also puts us on the path to achieving some very lofty long-term goals for our region. By 2024, our goals are to increase K-12 education funding in the region by more than 30%, increase teacher pay by $10,000 a year, cut income taxes by 15% and cut sales taxes by 20%. This budget makes substantial progress towards these goals with $400 million of additional education funding, a 4% pay raise for our teachers, and more than $3 billion of tax relief that will save a typical family of four almost $300 next year. Furthermore, this budget also invests $150 million in the establishment of our own regional border patrol, contributes $500 million to the Teacher Retirement System of Texas, and funds a $50 million expansion of Medicaid. While this budget puts us in a great position heading into the new year, this is about so much more than just funding the government for another 12 months. This is about enacting a long-term vision of prosperity and security for our region. Today, we took a major step forward in accomplishing that vision.” View full PR

    Hey Columbia, its a pleasure to be here again. By now most of you have heard about my tax plan. We're gonna make it simple, fast, and easy. But what about where your tax dollars go? Well there's one place I'm going to make sure that they don't go, and that is to funding Planned Parenthood. Listen folks, I'm pro-life. The Bible tell us that murder is a sin, and I absolutely agree that abortion is murder. I know that I'm not the only one that believes this, many good honest religious Americans believe the same. A fetus is a human being, and throwing that away is a terrible, terrible thing. That's why I don't believe that any of our tax dollars should go towards funding an organization that believes in murder, and performs them on a regular basis. In 2015-2016 Planned Parenthood received more than $554 million in "government health services grants and reimbursements." Folks, imagine if we simply stopped giving this money away, what good we could do with $554 million. That could be more money spent on education or helping those in need, not murdering babies. They're going to attack me hard on this folks, but we need someone who's not afraid to stand up for his convictions, and I am here. NO MORE MONEY FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD. They can survive on private donations, but I will make sure that not a dime of your tax dollars are going to commit murder. Folks, the fact that more than half of its billion-dollar-plus revenue in 2015-2016 came from our wallets and abortion sales makes it clear that our tax dollars have no business in Planned Parenthood's coffers. If I am elected President, America will return to the morals in which it was founded upon. Every human life is sacred in my eyes, and if I'm in the White House, that's going to mean something. Thank you for having me, and may God continue to Bless America!

    GOVERNOR WILLIAMS PASSES FROM STROKE BREAKING NEWS: Governor Williams, who was admitted to UC Davis Medical Center earlier tonight, was confirmed to have suffered from a stroke. He went unresponsive at around 7:35 PM and responders were unable to revive him. Governor Williams was less than a year into his term. His passing will be grieved by the region and the country as a whole. As the next election is more than a year out, regional law states that another special election will be held to fill his position. A date is not set yet, but it surely will be in the coming days.

    Calvin Ward spoke in Ames, IA while stumping for Daniela Gonzalez ”Good evening everyone, it is great to be in Iowa with all of you. Tonight, I want to announce my choice for the Democratic primary. It is imperitive that we unify around someone that represents, not just the best of our party, but the best of America. We need someone who has the military experience in order to lead us well. We need someone who’s fought hard for farmers. In my opinion, Daniela González is that candidate. She has combat experience that has taught her courage and bravery. She doesn’t just support farmers, she has lived the life. But I believe she has the drive and ideas that we need, not just as Democrats, but as Americans. She will fight for equal pay and family leave, an issue that impacts all of us. She has spoken at length on the dangers of tariffs and how they’re hurting our economy. She has pledged to continue pressing for criminal justice reform, in fact, she is the main candidate that about it at length. That is why I’m encouraging every Democrat to get out and support Daniela for President!

    Ken Bowers From the Office of Representative Kenneth R. Bowers FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE This morning, Congressman Ken Bowers (D-WV) delivered an impassioned speech on the House floor calling on House Speaker Calvin Ward (D-AR) to bring the Protecting Our Energy, Environment, and Economy Act to the floor. The bill, jointly introduced by Bowers and House Minority Leader Paul Vang (R-WI), would introduce a new tariff on carbon imports as a means of fighting climate change. "This majority was elected on the promise to make a plan on one of the most pressing issues facing humanity today," Bowers said on the House floor. "By choosing inaction, we are choosing damnation." So far, most of the House Democratic Caucus have declared their intent to vote against a motion to bring the bill to the House floor for debate. Speaker Ward has been an especially vocal critic of the bill, calling it "the worst thing for the economy at this time" and claiming that it would "double" farmers' woes. "This bill has nothing to do with farmers or soybeans," Bowers said to the press. "What this will effect is imports on steel, automobiles, fossil fuels; industries that have been long been hurting domestically due to outsourcing." Bowers went on to expand the tax refund outlined in the bill, which Speaker Ward has called a "buyoff" to Americans for the tariff. "Prices will rise maybe about sixty dollars more on average," Bowers said. "That's an average eight hour work day for a minimum wage earner, and for them they'd only see prices rise half of that rate. For a working-class family, that's well worth it for a thousand dollars back in their bank account. And for families who've relied on jobs that have been outsourced or put out of business by the economic blowback of climate change, it's a godsend." Bowers continued, urging congressional Democrats to allow the bill to be heard on the debate floor. "It wasn't that long ago that Republican lawmakers wouldn't hear a word on climate change. With this bill, we've accomplish something revolutionary. It is by no means the end of the discussion. In fact, it's just the beginning. It's up to us to allow that discussion to be heard by the American people." View full PR

    The best thing about this PR is you discuss a number of issues that are both high-priority for Democrats but that most of the candidates aren’t talking about (gun violence, blm). Progressives, particularly minority progressives like those overrepresented in South Carolina, absolutely love this. It doesn’t appeal nearly as much to midwestern economic populists, and definitely doesn’t appeal to conservatives, but it achieves what I think you were trying to achieve in rallying social-justice-minded progressives.

    Paul Vang From the Office of House Minority Leader Paul Vang Recently as the House Democratic leadership has been incensed over the possibility of even debating the Protecting Our Energy, Environment, and Economy Act the new DNC Chairman Darren Fitzpatrick has introduced the CLEAN Act. This bill would have highly detrimental effects on the economy and raise prices across the board. At $50 a ton of carbon it would be a carbon tax higher than most in the developed world. Let's look at how this would impact the nation (numbers on carbon emission available here ) 1. The agricultural industry emits just under 586 million metric tons of carbon a year. With the $50 carbon tax this would be an extra $29,299,500,000 in new taxes placed on agriculture. The House Democrats would need a lot more taxpayer dollars to bailout all the farmers they'd put out of business with the CLEAN Act. For all their talk of standing with farmers the DNC Chairman who represents the party doesn't seem to care. 2. American electrical production emits 1.82 billion metric tons of carbon a year. With a $50 carbon tax this would be an extra $91,154,000,000 in taxes placed on the production of electricity. This is a cost that will be put off on the consumers. That's likely over $600 in new taxes for electricity on each household. 3. The average car emits 6 metric tons of carbon a year. So that's an extra $300 a year per car a family owns. 4. The bill eliminates the the funding mechanisms of the Highway Trust Fund which funds maintenance for the country's highways. Something I just saved from insolvency with the Rebuilding America's Infrastructure Act. Even without the gasoline tax the cost of gasoline would likely still rise by about 44 cents a gallon at a $50 per ton rate exceeding the current gasoline tax of 25 cents. 5. The price of coal would rise by 330% thus killing coal country once and for all. The impact would not be limited to these things. Likely hundreds of thousands if not in the millions of jobs would be lost. Prices on all goods would rise as shipping costs would rise greatly. This is the alternative the Democratic establishment is putting up against the bipartisan climate change bill I have introduced alongside Mr. Ken Bowers. Instead of getting $1100 rebated for a family of four easily outpacing any rise in prices, with the Democratic establishment's plan you can expect thousands in new costs. At least it's not tariffs right? View full PR

    Thank you. I don't like to brag about it. It was for my research on the deregulation of Far East trade barriers. I also wrote a book entitled.....Macroeconomics in Developing Nations. It is an interesting topic....in fact.............*sigh* I am getting "the look" from my close friend and adviser Leo to move on before I bore you all to death with the details. Give me your address and I will send you the book and more interesting facts about it.
