Last Monday 60 Democrat members of the state House of Representatives fled Texas to Washington DC to block Republicans from advancing new voting laws through a special session of the legislature.
Democrat lawmakers were seen packed on a private plane, maskless flying from Texas to DC.
The state lawmakers actually believe flying on a private jet to DC, dining at posh DC restaurants and enjoying air conditioned hotel rooms is comparable to George Washington crossing the Delaware River.
The $1.5 million, taxpayer funded trip to DC where the lawmakers receive a daily stipend, is a huge sacrifice for these Democrats.
One lawmaker tried to illustrate the personal sacrifice she made by posting a photo of her bra and panties air drying to her social media account.
“You bet we’re recognizing & honoring our country’s heritage. As most Texans, tho, this is what we’re doing tonight—using whatever is accessible, uwashing (sic) our clothes in the sink,”
