It's hard to vote for someone who thinks everything he touches turns to gold.  I ain't down with King Midas.

I guess you are ok with a person who doesn't even know where he is and who he is....

By the way, this topic was about Katie Porter... I still hear crickets on what she has done during the last couple of months.  I guess hiding and the taxpayers pay for her salary. What a great deal.

You are repeating yourself and sound like a bot. (virtual robot)
Maybe you should go to the q website and read about more conspiracy theories.

I normally would have voted for mimi walters, but in 2016, I had to send a message to the republican party for sucking trumps dick so HARD!  Plus the SALT deduction really screwed mimi.  It didn't have to be Katie Porter.  It was whoever was going to send a message to trump sycophants. 


Did you get the message?

OK, do I sense a bit of displease of his performance between you and the rest of us.  :) What if he declared voter frauds with the vote by mail and would not conceded to leave the WH?

Just ask yourself, friends or your neighbors, are we better as a nation with the 45 sitting in the office?


Is our kids better off or the 1% kids gains even higher privileges when you go to vote.

I would say 80% were before the pandemic

Katie Porter's twitter lists the following activities in the last few weeks:

Yesterday she visited the Mission Viejo American Heroes Tribute and delivered care packages/food to veterans to celebrate memorial day.

On May 19th she posted about the regularly updated website with resources to fight COVID 19 https://porter.house.gov/covid-resources/

On May 15th she posted a video of her speaking on the house floor on her support of the Heroes Act to support frontline workers in the fight against COVID 19.

On May 13th she posted an article she wrote with another representative calling for Ticketmaster to refund people for cancelled events.

On May 13th she also posted that she wrote to the Federal Reserve to see what could be done to speed up loans for small businesses.

I could keep going...but I won't. I don't understand why you keep asking what she's doing when she posts what she's doing on a daily basis. I'll share the link so you can see for yourself: https://twitter.com/RepKatiePorter

And look at that...Katie just posted that she's investigating a machine the FDA approved for sterilizing masks.

Definitely seems like a representative on the house oversight committee who is doing her job to me. What exactly was your problem again?

And to be stating facts and not spinning the truth, and not spit out lies, which goes against our President Trump for a change.  I say, she got balls, now that say alot for representative, against our males R. Senators constantly bending over taking it for Trump. So far for the Art of The Deal and The Deal Makers, Kimmy Jungy-Uni is vowing to scrap and create more nuclear weapons going forward, and China is not backing down. Meanwhile the American people are suffering. Wait until the extra 600 bonus run out. If you want to see blood on the street, it will be plenty of it.

Congresswoman Porter does stand up to the financial industry frequently, however she has chosen to vote by proxy during the pandemic.

Text from GovTrack “Rep. Katie Porter is currently voting by proxy under new rules in effect during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since May 26, 2020, Rep. Jennifer Wexton [D-VA10] will be casting Porter’s vote. Under the rules for proxy voting, representatives may designate another representative as their proxy and must give their proxy exact instructions on how to vote.”

This allows her more time to work within her CA District, but she can’t be participating in the full conversations in Congress remotely. Not the best example, but you can google a news story you are looking for, but a person who flips through a newspaper might run across issues outside their search. So she is still representing her core values, but might not be fully representing needs that will arise.

How do others feel about this? Was she elected to represent constituents by being present in DC or is voting remotely acceptable if her chosen voter Jennifer Weston represents The 45th District well enough? I’m not trying to choose a side, but see how people feel.

1. I am sorry voting remotely is not a game changer. But voting against your constituents best financial interest for voting for the limit the salt deductions like Mimi did is a problem.

2. Free covid testing. The American people can thank Katie.

I think under normal circumstances I would have an issue with a proxy vote situation. But, I think we can all agree a global pandemic is not a normal circumstance. Katie is a single mom to three children, and like many people right now childcare could be a major issue. I am ok with this as a temporary work around to the crisis, but would hope as soon as she's able to Katie returns to Washington.
