    Percy Montbatten (@GOPMontbatten) @ForWardAR to anyone with a reading comprehension level above grade 2, and who can read passages in context, the quote clearly means that Dems aren't showing up for debate on the House floor and aren't willing to compromise on amending bills there. But that's a good attempt at deflection.

    Percy Montbatten (@GOPMontbatten) I'm not sure what the Speaker is talking about re:docket access. I never once complained about not having it. I complained about Dems not showing up for debate. Turns out that even when they do, they've got nothing but strawmen. #shame

    Percy Montbatten (@GOPMontbatten) The Democrats are failing to turn up for debate, but have all day to issue petty press releases. Their constituents are being cheated out of a representative. I hope it will be remembered at the next election.
  9. Democrats Lack Substance on DACA House debate disappoints 'serious and interested parties' says Congressman Montbatten FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Washington, DC | The House of Representatives has spent the majority of the last week debating the DACA Act, which seeks to give amnesty to more than 20,000,000 illegal immigrants in the United States. Congressman Percy Montbatten (R-MA-6) spoke against the act on the House floor, presenting a substantive opposition to the proposal and claiming that it was central to the United States' sovereignty to be able to uphold the laws pertaining to the border. House Democrats were quick to come out and speak against Congressman Montbatten, but failed to deal with any of the substantive points on the matter. "It was all caricature and conjecture from the House Democrats," said Montbatten. "There was not a single House Democrat who could come out and make a sensible, logical appeal for why I should support DACA or why I was wrong." "At one point during debate, Missouri Congressman, [Democrat] Jack Gerhardt, summoned all of his rhetorical skill to remind me that neither Rush Limbaugh nor Michael Moore were elected to the House," said Congressman Montbatten. "Obviously that's clear to me, since I spend my work week in the House of Representatives doing the business of government. What he meant to say was that his position was the moderate, middle-ground position. Why? Because he said so and his position seems reasonable to him. Fair enough, except that I had presented the House minutes earlier with a valid and sound logical syllogism about why DACA should not be enacted and the only pathway for citizenship should be through the existing legal means. Congressman Gerhardt was disingenuous during debate and I think it's a shame; I'm sure that his constituents (who voted in favor of the President, by his own admission, with a resounding 54-point majority) are displeased with his disingenuous characterization of their beliefs and mine." The standard of debate on the DACA Act is being mirrored across the board for the Democrats, with only a few more choosing to contribute to debate on the House floor. Congressman MacMillan of New York, the author of the bill, has showed up to introduce the bill, but has made no further contributions. Congressman Gerhardt has contributed twice, and that is the extent of Democratic involvement in the debate. "As hard as I'm being on Congressman Gerhardt for his confused and illogical contributions to debate, I think that the entirety of the Congressional Democrats are even worse. They have spoken exactly three times on this bill, refusing to engage the minority in debate at all. By contrast, House Republicans have been actively attempting to find compromise on the bill with two major amendments being offered, both being voted against in numbers by Democrats who refuse to explain their opposition on the House floor. The Majority Party's lack of consideration for the legislative process is concerning, indeed; but their unwillingness to speak on the House floor, where they might run into opposition, has not stopped them from taking to the echo-chamber of the media. The Democratic Majority clearly have no regard for the legislative process of government, and prefer to play politics in the media than to roll up their sleeves and work with us in Congress to pass bills that will get through the Senate and that the President might consider signing. Overall, their lack of respect for their constituents, who sent them to Washington to get the job done and not to put their faces in front of the cameras every chance they get, is galling and irresponsible." Congressman Montbatten said that legislative leadership is needed from the Majority Party if the House is to pass anything that will be capable of getting through the Senate and past the President. "The entire leadership team in the DNC, including Speaker Ward, need to take a long, hard look in the mirror and ask themselves if they are really prepared to lead on these important issues, or if they are content to do nothing and talk a big game. One thing is for sure, their constituents can see right through their current strategy and aren't going to be happy about it." -ENDS-

    Presidential Tax Transparency Act

    Mr. Speaker, This bill was not necessary then, as it is not necessary now, because it is up to the voters to determine whether they will support a candidate who does not choose to release their personal finances to an entire country. In the most recent Presidential Election, the electorate decided that they would. If, in the future, they choose not to then so be it. I can see no reason for the federal government to strong-arm Presidential candidates into releasing their personal information to the public, which would constitute a grave offense against their personal liberty, security, and privacy. If the voters insist on it, then the voters will insist and it will be up to the candidates themselves whether they comply or lose. If the voters do not insist, then it is clearly not of such importance to the electorate to require it. I yield.

    DACA Act

    My contention, Mr. Speaker, is nothing more than what I stated. It is telling that the Gentleman refuses to deal with my more substantive comments, which represent the majority of my previous statement, and chooses, instead, to deal with a passing comment which I stated at the opening of my statement. The Gentleman is interested in castigating members of this House according to their support for various policies, based on his frankly archetypal and facile understanding of nuance, so that he can make a decision as to who his friends are. This is not useful and it goes directly against the goal he stated: to come together and find compromise on issues. Further pursuant to the failure of the Hon. Gentleman to create bridges and find compromise, he has decided to arbitrarily determine where the "center" on this issue is, which happens to be his own position, and then chastises the other members of the House to "come to the center" and join him in his position. This "center" has been determined without basis on where the two extremes of the policy lie, and does not consider whether this particular "center" is acceptable to either extreme, to the moderates, or to anyone else. It should also be noted, Mr. Speaker, that I am well aware that Messieurs Limbaugh and Moore have not been elected to this House; but I was elected to this House, presumably because a majority of constituents in my district thought I would be the best able to represent their interests in the House. To dismiss my position, which I believe I spoke well on previously, is to dismiss the constituents of Massachusetts' Sixth District because it may overlap, from time to time, with what Mr. Limbaugh believes. I can assure the Gentleman, if it will help him, that I have not, nor would likely ever, consult with Mr. Limbaugh; I do, however, regularly consult with my constituents on these matters and believe that he should have more respect for my constituents and for his, and stop attempting to turn their views into facile memes. I yield.
