With the release of the 2022 日历, House Democrats have officially scheduled the least amount of in-session voting days of any Congress in modern history,” 众议院少数党领袖凯文·麦卡锡(Kevin McCarthy), R-Calif。, 告诉福克斯新闻. “At a time when Americans across the country are paying more and earning less amid soaring inflation, rising gas prices, and supply chain shortages, House Democrat leadership has decided their caucus will do the bare minimum.

President Biden and the Democrat Party have failed to lead — and now Speaker Pelosi’s caucus is failing to even show up to work,” 他加了.

By comparison, the 115th Congress under Republican leadership saw the House vote on 251 天.

另外, the GOP-led 114th and 113th Congresses met for 230 days and 244 天, 分别.

The lack of voting coincides with the multiple compounding crises facing America, including the supply chain shortage and immigration crisis crumpling the U.S.-Mexico border.

另外, voting has become easier for members to accomplish through the proxy-voting measure implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pelosi’s office did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
