Pennsylvania Member of Congress Tracking Report (MoCTrack)
Welcome to the Pennsylvania Member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending November 10, 2019. Congress was on recess this past week, so we did things a little differently.
With the Impeachment Inquiry moving into a new phase, we are seeing GOP politicians trotting out a whole lot of nonsense about Democrats doing nothing but impeachment. So we’ve got the facts to refute that silly claim. Right now the House has passed over ***THREE HUNDRED*** bills that Mitch McConnell is sitting on - he's not letting them move ahead in the Senate. Speaker Pelosi referred to it as the McConnell Graveyard. We’ve take a closer look at thirty of those "graveyard" bills. They cover topics like:
- Election Security
- LGBTQ civil rights
- Equal Pay
- Background Checks
- Climate Change
- Homeless Veterans
- Pension guarantees
- Raising the Minimum Wage
- The Rape Kit Backlog
- Protections for people with Pre-existing conditions
We hope you will find this information useful, and that the next time you see someone go on a “do nothing-Dems” tear, you’ll toss out info about some of these bills right back at them!
MoCTrack will be back with a normal report next week.
This is where we will keep our archive of older, previous weeks' MoCTrack Reports from the 116th Congress.
