Sure the DemocRats will vote against such a bill because so many of them are guilty of sexual misconduct.
The bill passed without the amendment on sexual misconduct and now goes to the U.S. Senate.
Louisiana Rep. Mike Johnson, chairman of the Republican Study Committee, called the vote “just wrong.”
“Today, House Democrats voted to reward individuals who have engaged in sexual misconduct with a pay raise,” Johnson said in a statement. “Thanks to their votes, those who have been disciplined for these behaviors will be given the same, across-the-board pay increase that their victims receive.”
Johnson accused the Democrats of rejecting a “commonsense solution” just because it came from the otherside.
“Unfortunately, this legislation passed the House for no other reason than that the majority party could not stomach a commonsense solution offered by the minority,” he said. “We are appalled that this is what ‘governing’ has come to in our country. The American people deserve much better than this.”
