GOP Lawmaker Examined COVID Optimistic Twice – That Did not Cease Him From Going to Work within the Statehouse, Even Maskless

Republicans from the six-member joint bipartisan house and the Senate Joint Congress Committee on Opening Ceremonies (JCCIC) on Tuesday killed a resolution nominating Joe Biden as elected president.

The committee was formed as part of the 20th amendment to the US Constitution. It is “responsible for planning and conducting the opening ceremonies of the President-Elect and Vice-President-Elect of the United States at the Capitol”.

But on Tuesday, in a 3-3 vote along the party lines, the Republicans blocked the committee from performing its constitutionally mandated task.

The rejection came in a private session in which House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer tabled a motion recognizing that the session of the Inaugural Committee of Congress was the inauguration of Biden and elected Vice President Kamala Harris, a member of the Senate , prepared, “reports CNN. “It was rejected by Republicans, a move that effectively refused to recognize that Biden is the president-elect.”

The six-member committee consists of three members of the House and three members of the Senate. Three are Democrats and three are Republicans.

They include Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO), chairman of the committee, Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Majority Leader of House Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Minority Chairs of the House.

The committee’s website even has a countdown clock to noon on January 20th.

“For more than 200 years, America’s citizens have witnessed the dedication ceremonies of the President and Vice-Presidents of the United States,” the website said. “From George Washington’s first inauguration in New York City in 1789 until today, as we prepare for the 59th inaugural ceremonies, the swearing-in ceremonies represent both national renewal and continuity of leadership.”

The election was five weeks ago today. President Donald Trump lost, but never conceded. He spends his days lying about winning while drawing the American public out of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Chairman Blunt, who voted against today’s simple resolution, had the audacity to post this hugely hypocritical tweet and video touting the Committee’s commitment to Democracy and Continuity of Government on the committee’s website.

JCCIC Chairman @RoyBlunt: “Now, almost 120 years since Congress formed the first joint committee on opening ceremonies, it has been our job, truly our bond, to accommodate in an impartial manner what is truly this iconic symbol of democracy. People all over the world are watching. “
