Republicans in Congress are stomping their feet and saying they want to go home from the pandemic, Mommy

Chip Roy from Texas’ 21st Congressional District didn’t vote to overturn the election of the 2020 election, which made him slightly better than 147 of his colleagues who voted to change the election results because they didn’t like them.
