One House Democrat Reminds America That Democrats Are Putting Country First
Republicans love to wave the flag and claim to be the most patriotic people in the room, but when it is time to put the country first, it is Democrats who are stepping up and doing what’s right, as Rep. Sean Kasten (D-IL) pointed out in a floor speech.
Rep. Kasten said:
Next week, Americans across the country are going to gather around their dinner tables and share what they're thankful for. And I hope my Republican colleagues will use that moment to reflect on how lucky you are to work with us House Democrats. I hope you're thankful for that time last June when the Republicans were on the verge of driving us into an economic default, and Democrats stepped up, helped you out, and provided the votes needed to make sure we didn't.
I hope you're thankful for that time 45 days ago when you were driving us to the edge of an economic shutdown, and once again Democrats stepped up. Helped you out, and made sure we kept the government open for the American people. I hope you're thankful for that time this week, when Democrats once again had to be the adults in the room, didn't throw any punches, but made sure that even though the Republican majority couldn't pass the new Speaker's stopgap measure, we did, and we kept the government open for a few more weeks.
So this Thanksgiving, I'd ask all of you, be thankful, and whatever you do, just don't be that crazy uncle who won't stop yapping about Hunter Biden.
The American people shouldn’t expect much patriotism from a party that is being led by a man who attempted to overthrow the United States government and puts his current energies into trying to destroy democracy.
As we will discuss below, Democrats have changed. Democrats have learned that they can save the country and put themselves in a position to win.
