Recently on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) argued against the idea of letting Congress vote by proxy due to the coronavirus.
According to Breitbart, “Congress is essential,” McCarthy proclaimed. “We have worked through the Civil War, World War II and others. We need to get to work. And just as states wouldn’t open up completely at once, we need committees to come back in, like Armed Services, to do the national defense bill. You have appropriators making sure government is funded. You could bring oversight back to look at the W.H.O. And the current administration of the W.H.O. is acting not like the World Health Organization, but more like the Wuhan Health Organization.”
“We should actually get the facts and the answers,” he said. “And those committees could come back, with not the entire Congress, to show that we are working for the American public, just as American as we watch these states phase-in, in a safe, healthy manner.”
