If you want to know what a Democrat-controlled Congress might have looked like under a Hillary presidency, look no further than California.
The leftist haven has drifted leftward in the decades since Ronald Reagan served as governor where the possibility of electing another Republican as governor is now nearly impossible.
And it has become routine for CA legislators to exempt themselves from the very laws they pass for everyone else.
Now the state’s anti-Second Amendment gun regulations have made the list of laws that don’t apply to legislators.
They also don’t pay for gas or have to pay traffic tickets.
What a sweetheart deal!
Here’s more from Joe for America…
The California State Senate agrees with Charlie Rangel that they “deserve” to own guns but the citizens do not! Every year they pass more and more gun control laws and NONE of them apply to themselves!
They voted 28-8 to exempt themselves from the gun-control laws that apply to the rest of the California.
You think maybe this will cause Californians to rise up? NOPE! It happened 5 years ago and since then, California has passed a plethora of other gun laws…that only apply to citizens.
Yes, you heard me right! The exemption was created in 2011 and the California legislature has passed a number of gun laws since. Pretty easy when you
…and it just goes on and on! are passing bills that do not apply to you!
It is not the only special privileges California legislators provide themselves!
They do not pay red light camera bills or for gasoline!
How does it all happen so easily in California? The Washington Post explains:
Attempts by a handful of reformers to require politicians to provide a full annual disclosure of the benefits received from the public treasury have been rebuffed. Currently, government officials must file a statement of economic interests revealing income from any source other than a local, state or federal government agency. Gifts worth more than $50 also must be disclosed, but lawmakers rejected a bill that would have prohibited acceptance of concert and sporting event tickets, gift cards, spa treatments, golf outings and other benefits from lobbyists trying to buy votes.
Bills of this nature never meet an honest fate in which roll-call votes put members on the record as favoring or opposing each idea. Instead, reform measures are held in committee to die quietly as legislative deadlines pass. As of last week, it’s effectively impossible for a bill to become law if it hasn’t already passed in at least one of the chambers.
…and it just goes on and on!
