Democrats Flew On Private Jets Without Masks To Obstruct Voter ID Laws

Democrat Texas state representatives showed their hypocrisy when they posted a photo of themselves going on a gas-guzzling private flight to Washington, D.C. to obstruct a voting integrity bill.

“Rules for thee but not for me strikes the Democrats, again. Hey, @TSA, if these Democrat lawmakers are allowed to fly without masks, so should the American people. Follow the science, not the political science,” Republican Rep. Byron Donalds tweeted in a response to the hypocritical photo.

Texas Democrats are claiming that Republicans are plotting to block people from voting, with no specifics on how. To block Republicans from passing bills at the state level, they’ve broken quorum to visit the nation’s Capitol.

“Today, Texas House Democrats stand united in our decision to break quorum and refuse to let the Republican-led legislature force through dangerous legislation that would trample on Texans’ freedom to vote,” a handful of Texas lawmakers said in a statement Monday.

“We are now taking the fight to our nation’s Capitol,” they added. “We are living on borrowed time in Texas. We need Congress to act now to pass the For the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act to protect Texans – and all Americans – from the Trump Republicans’ nationwide war on democracy.”

Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a stern warning to the Democrats who abandoned their legislative responsibilities.

“Once they step back into the state they will be arrested and brought back to the Capitol and we will be conducting business,” he said in a statement.

According to Bankrate, it costs approximately $2,000 to $12,000 per hour to charter a private jet. It is unknown if the Democrats paid for the flight out of pocket or with taxpayer funding.

The Democrat lawmakers were almost certainly required to show ID in order to board the getaway plane.
