Congressional Democrats recently passed a controversial bill that temporarly allows members of Congress to vote by proxy. The bill allows any member of Congress who is present in the Capitol to vote in place of up to 10 members who are not.
12th District Republican Congressman Mike Bost said that Congressional Republicans and Democrats have worked well together during this crisis, but that this bill to allow proxy voting is unconstitutional.
Congressman Bost said that if our forefathers who went through wars, plagues, and epidemics could vote in person, then so can the 116th Congress.
Congressman Bost said that he will never use a proxy and will be in Washington everytime there is a vote.
