Libertarian GOP Rep Confirms Intent To Delay Stimulus

MarketWatch reports:

Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky said Friday in a series of tweets that he would make a move that looks likely to delay the House’s vote on a huge coronavirus stimulus package.

He said he “will request a vote on the CARES Act which means members of Congress will vote on it by pushing ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or ‘present.'”

Massie also said the “Constitution requires that a quorum of members be present to conduct business in the House,” and he suggested it’s not “too much to ask that the House do its job.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi previously had been counting on a relatively quick voice vote.
