My main point was less about Congress People who don't have their "butt in the seat" so to speak, although I'd argue an electorate has every right to upset with someone like Tulsi Gabbard who just straight up doesn't even show to 37.8% of votes in a calendar year, but with Congress People who are there, sitting there on the Congressional Floor, and just straight up go "Nope, I'm not going to vote because I don't feel like it."

Yesterday 4 people didn't vote. They weren't home sick. They weren't at the funeral of a loved one. They were there, in the same chambers as everyone else, and just went "LOL not going to take side in this."

Yahtzee: "No. When you are asked a Yes or No question the first word out of your mouth needs to be Yes or No. Only after that have you earned the right to elaborate."
