The media has been silent on two efforts by the Republicans to pay federal employees.

Maybe it’s because only 6 Democrats joined in to vote with Republicans the first time and only 10 the second time!

Freshman Congressman Dan Crenshaw called out the silence from the media on reporting the concerted effort by the GOP to get a paycheck to the fed employees:

Big deal that never got reported:

Update:

House GOP voted again to pay federal employees. This time just ten Democrats joined us:

Last week, House GOP voted to pay federal employees their 1st paycheck of 2019, despite shutdown. Only 6 Dems voted with us. It failed. Dem priority is not paying workers or opening gov’t. It is opposing Trump.

Crenshaw has been a breath of fresh air in Congress. He’s loaded with common sense and the ability to connect with both sides of the aisle.

A furloughed federal employee thanked Crenshaw for his efforts:

Yes! Thank you so much for trying. Furloughed here, and while yes, the lack of a paycheck isn’t ideal-I support our president and understand what’s at stake.
