House Freedom Caucus calls for resolution to remove Pelosi as Speaker of the House

The House Freedom Caucus is calling for a resolution to remove Pelosi as speaker of the House.

Their rationale is explained in a new co-authored Op-Ed for “The Hill”

The five lawmakers who wrote the piece are:

  • Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ)
  • Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD)
  • Rep. Jody Hice (R-GA)
  • Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ)
  • Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX)

The House Freedom Caucus tweeted the piece and wrote “America cannot afford to wait until Jan. to end her toxic leadership and chart a new and better course.”

They added “Congress must immediately move forward on a resolution to “vacate the chair” and remove @SpeakerPelosi as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.”

In the Op-Ed the GOP lawmakers write  “Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has consistently demonstrated both an inability and unwillingness to govern, and her complicit alliance with the extremists of the far left put the future and well-being of the United States of America in peril. Our nation cannot afford to wait until January to end her toxic leadership and chart a new and better course. Congress must immediately move forward on a resolution to “vacate the chair” and thereby remove Pelosi as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.”

The group takes aim at Pelosi’s pushing through of “proxy voting.”

“Where to begin? For starters, Pelosi has all but removed the most fundamental responsibility of a member of Congress — voting. This summer, the Speaker broke with over 230 years of precedent by jamming through H.Res. 965, authorizing so-called “proxy voting,” which unconstitutionally allows a member to delegate his or her vote to another without being present, as well as allowing a proxy vote to count towards a quorum.”

The group also blasts Pelosi for labeling Republicans “enemies of the state.”

“And let us not forget that while Republicans continue to try to accomplish the work of the American people, the Speaker labeled every Republican in America, not simply those in Congress, “enemies of the state.”

Let us remind you that the same person who is likening half of America to domestic terrorists was the very individual who has refused to condemn anti-Semitic statements made by her fellow Democrat members. She is the same individual who helped force stringent lockdowns on Americans, causing unknown individuals to forgo medical screenings and treatments, die alone without loved ones in hospitals, lose the businesses they spent their lives building, and more, while she gets haircuts in a fancy private salon in San Francisco while — you guessed it — not wearing the mask she demands Americans wear every single day. Even worse, she, who makes the laws, claimed she didn’t know the rules.”

The piece concludes “It is time for the House of Representatives to work for the American people again, but it cannot do that without new leadership. Pelosi must go.”
