Rep. Cori Bush, (D-MO) believes her life is more important than most other people. In fact, she stated that she deserves private security because her job is on Capitol Hill requires it. She says whether she spends $200,000 or $10 on private security with your tax dollars it’s just the way it has to be, so for those of you who oppose, “suck it up.”
Moreover, she was insistent that everyday Americans have less to be fearful of than Congressional members, who in her words do so much more important. While she is begging for security, she wants citizens to be comfortable with defunding police departments and coming up with new ways to handle crime.
I guess Bush feels security is essential when she slept outside the Capitol this week. There is no doubt she was concerned about her life, after witnessing what the Democrats have done to Democrat run cities. She was protesting the end of the first eviction moratorium that was put in place because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Just listen to her rant….
“I have had attempts on my life. I have to much work to do…if I end up spending $200,000 if I spend $10 more dollars on it, you know what I get to be here so suck it up,” Bush said. “And defunding the police has to happen.”

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
