    The ‘’DEMOCRATIC’’ rules, which were enacted in a 217-189 vote without bipartisan support, would allow one member in attendance to cast proxy votes for up to 10 members who aren’t in attendance based on written instructions provided to them by the absentee lawmaker, and lawmakers voting by proxy would count towards the quorum requirement. This is nothing more than the an ill advised effort by Speaker Pelosi’ led House in circumventing their elected duties by allowing, if I’m correct, one man serving in the capacity of the remaining non-attending 10, as prescribed as elected members of Congress. SneakyPete. 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 5.27
