GOP congressman claims working from home is somehow the end of government



By Josh Israel -May 18, 2020 5:08 PM

'Say goodbye to representative government,' wrote Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs, in response to members of Congress working remotely in the middle of a pandemic.

Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs (R) claimed on Monday that a temporary House rule change to allow members to vote by proxy during the coronavirus pandemic meant the end of America's representative democracy.

In an opinion column for the Daily Caller, Biggs wrote, "Say goodbye to representative government. Nancy Pelosi distracted the entire country from her efforts to emasculate the House of Representatives by introducing legislation that devastates our economy by taking on more than $3 trillion in national debt."

He continued, "It's been a pretty busy week for the Speaker as she has remade Congress by shattering the great institution of constitutional representation, Congress while enslaving generations of future Americans. And as an autocrat now runs the United States House of Representatives we can bid a mournful farewell to our constitutional republic."

Biggs was referring to votes on Friday in the House that authorized funds to help localities function during the pandemic and changed the rules to temporarily allowed members to hold committee hearings remotely and designate a colleague to cast their votes on the floor. The move will allow members to opt to work from home and model social distancing to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.
