These are public votes right? Why can't the Congresspeople just vote on camera. Obviously if the vote of a particular congressmember is wrong, they can see it immediately. They can call in and say that's not my vote. It's either yes or no. Use zoom or something. Put a webcam in each congress members office. How is every other company gets thier work done online, but Congress can't.

The security aspect should not be all that tough if they actually want to do it. There are not so many of them that having independent parties confirm the vote would be a serious challenge. The legal issues Could be another matter.

The establishment Democrats in Congress are mostly over 60, my guess is this voting issue may eventually take care of itself. None wear masks and they Iove shaking hands. Darwin awards.

Isn't it a yes or no type thing? They could just all text me their vote and I'll keep track in a color coded spreadsheet

Just remember this: Three fricking times so far. Three fricking times. What is wrong with people these days?! I'm not a massive fan of a temp stimulus to begin with, but I get it. I just think bickering makes it insufferable.

You can make a Personal Face Filter made from layered coffee filters sewed or tied together containing biochar -then/ zinc & copper -then/ biochar combined with licorice root, citrus peel, garlic powder, turmeric powder, colodial silver, & salt. Attach to face, covering both mouth and nose, fit tight with strings tied to the outer ring binding the filter. Attach over that a second, larger mask as a larger contaminant filter. Apply the same principle as staying warm in winter. Layer, layers, layers. Vitamin C COMPLEX, taken in moderate doses, multiple times per day, everyday, to megadose Vitamin C for anti-virals. Colodial Silver, Garlic, Licorice Root, Apple Cider Vinegar, Zinc & Vitamin J or Choline, (the active anti-pneumonia part of the Vitamin C Complex), & Copper are good items to have for this as well. Elderberry is normally great because of the cytokine storm it induces from the immune system. With Coronachan, this virus survives too long, causing permanent damage to the surrounding cells due to the longevity of the cytokine storm. If you're interacting with people, you need to be wearing a mask at all times to reduce viral load in the likely event of contamination. You can make from coffee filters if you have no others. And get the honey and whiskey for hot toddies. Those are proving pretty effective for coating & soothing the esophageal tract once symptomatic.

They are actively trying to not get elected at this point. Who's bright idea was this, and why has a huge organisation (DNC) allowed this to happen? This is public suicide...

The articles are a bit misleading but this is about voting through an app or some technology used to vote in case Congress cant vote like the 3 Congress members who got the coronavirus and some decided to self quarantine. The argument is that technology is faulty and sometimes can be glitchy or be hacked and worst case scenario it could end up like Iowa caucus where that whole app thing screwed everything up. That, and there would need to be changes to the rules as far as being required to show up in person in Washington to vote

She's just playing politics at the expense of the safety of her colleagues. Chances of her getting it, low, chances of someone there getting it, high, so the math works out on cost benefit analysis to her agenda of orange man bad, no relief for you without wasism bad funds, and mandated eco equity tyranny.
