House Democrats introduced a bill this week that would “prohibit the use of Federal funds for the commemoration of certain former Presidents, and for other purposes.”
Under House Bill 484, introduced in late January by Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-California) and cosponsored by Indiana’s own Democratic Representative Andre Carson, the bill states that federal funds would not be allowed to be used to:
“Create or display any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States on Federal public land, including any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property.”
The ‘No Glory for Hate Act,’ also prohibits the use of federal funds to “name, designate, or redesignate” federal buildings or land “after, or in commemoration of, any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives.”
House Republican Whip Steve Scalise called the bill indicative of Democrats’ mindset.
“THIS is their priority right now?” Scalise asked.
“Not students. Not workers. Not small businesses. Just more revenge. Shameful.”
So much for “unity,” eh Democrats?
