Pelosi Blocks Names of 13 Service Members Killed From Being Read

Quote:
A day after the U.S. officially pulled out of Afghanistan, and less than a week after a suicide bomber killed 13 U.S. Service Members, Rep. Carlos Gimenez has just tweeted that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) has blocked the names of those dead servicemen and women from being read on the floor of the House of Representatives.

Rep. Brian Mast (R), a wounded combat veteran from Afghanistan, tells The Floridian that during a Republican-only “moment of silence,” Speaker Pelosi refused to recognize them to” read names or bring up bills or anything.”

“We gaveled in, had a prayer, said the Pledge of Allegiance, took a moment of silence with pretty much all Republican veterans, then asked to be recognized to read names and bring up Afghanistan legislation. They did not acknowledge us, and just closed the House down,” said Rep. Mast.

Another combat veteran, Rep. Greg Steube (R), also expressed his disgust for Pelosi refusing to let him and his Republican colleagues read the names.

“House Democrats just refused to recognize Republican veterans on the House Floor to read the names of our fallen service members in Afghanistan. That’s how far our nation has fallen,”
tweeted Rep. Steube.

Pelosi wasn't even there and it was a pro forma session (where no bills are introduced or members recognized to speak), but sure, why not try to turn this into something it isn't.

Obama claimed pro forma sessions weren't real so he could make recess appointments. But when Republicans attempt to speak or introduce bills, normal House functions, it's dirty politics.

Do you seriously believe the Speaker pro tem does anything not approved by Pelosi? Nonsense.

The chair never recognizes anyone to speak or introduce a bill during a pro forma session. This was as stunt by the Republicans, knowing full well that they wouldn't be recognized.

Right, so Republicans should have kept quiet so Democrats could claim they never tried to honor the fallen.

Democrats refuse to call the House back in session despite the Afghanistan debacle and the hurricane aftermath. Like Biden who departed for a camp David vacation as Afghanistan disintegrated Pelosi would rather hide than draw attention to Biden’s failure.

You just like to believe bad stuff about Democrats so that you can not look at them as human. And that is a dangerous thing.

That's quite a stretch there dearie. Humans can be quite evil and still be very human.

I have noticed you do the very same with Republicans. But then that's different, right?

Why don't you try debating the issues and not degrading the person via such projections?
