On Tuesday, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene introduced the Congressional Voting Accountability Act to hold Members of Congress accountable to their constituents. This resolution ends the practice of legislation passing the House of Representatives by voice vote, eliminates all forms of proxy/remote voting, and requires all members to vote either “yes” or “no” on every question before the House.
Over the past few years, bills and amendments have passed the House of Representatives by voice vote with only a handful of Members present. By using this tactic, the Uniparty in Congress ensures that their constituents cannot see how they have voted on key legislative questions. The Congressional Voting Accountability Act addresses this problem and holds Congress accountable to the people.
Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene issued the following statement:
“For too long the Uniparty in Congress has escaped accountability for actions that destroy the American way of life by passing legislation in an empty chamber with no Members on record.
The people of Northwest Georgia sent me to Washington to hold Congress accountable for its actions. Legislation affecting the entire nation should not pass the House without a recorded vote. Constituents have a right to know how their Representative voted.
It is critical for our country that the people have the right information about the individuals they elect to represent them. It is time that we put people over politicians and the Congressional Voting Accountability Act helps do just that.”
