U.S. House, and Welch, focused on Trump removal

by Guy Page

Rep. Peter Welch

All but two votes cast thus far in the 2021-22 session by Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vermont) on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives have addressed the removal of office and/or impeachment of President Donald Trump, according to a review of the Vermont congressman’s voting record on www.clerk.house.gov. In each case he has voted against Trump and with the Democratic majority.

Apart from “housekeeping” votes at the beginning of the 2021-22 session, the two non-Trump-related votes (both yes) were to allow the appointment of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, and to require federal government spending to be posted online for transparency purposes.

Welch also has co-sponsored 26 bills, including the censure of two Republican colleagues who defended Trump in the Electoral College vote, reparations for African-Americans, and admitting Washington DC as a state – to be known as Douglass Commonwealth. The information below is presented as published on the House website:

  1. Peter Welch is nothing but a tool of the DUMOCRATIC Party. He should listen to the VOTERS NOT the party LINE.

  2. OK, so Peter Welsh and all of the other left wingers hate Donald Trump. That’s been clear for years. An impeachment DAYS before he leaves office is nothing more than a completely political move to prevent Donald Trump from running again in 2024. It’s a symbolic move which wastes time and money. Who knows? After being out of office for a few months, Trump may realize that his term was like beating his head against the wall. It’s really painful, but it feels so good when you stop. He may be like most other ex-presidents and enjoy his life, or he may be like Obama and actively work against the current administration to resist their every move and cause as much hate and discontent like they’ve done to him since he began his term in 2017. I hope at some point we can stop blaming EVERYTHING on Trump, so the current leaders can actually DO THEIR JOB.

  3. Sure, let’s all focus on what is really important. We need to drain our own swamp, and it cannot happen soon enough.

  4. Any politician who wastes time continuing to go after Trump is an absolute DOPE!! It only shows they aren’t interested in the people who put them in office, but rather wasting even more money than they already have following their hate-filled agenda! The new administration is not at all interested in peace and prosperity, Welch included, but rather seeking revenge on the patriotic Americans who supported President Trump. He’ll be back!!!!!!!

  5. So tell me something that I didn’t already know. Curly as well as Larry, and Moe are all tools of the wacky left Democratic party. (term limits please!) If the shoe were on the other foot, and Republicans were in the majority, and Democrats, were the ones getting impeached and censured, canceled, and doxed, well all I can say is “what goes around comes around” it always has, and it always will, and won’t it be sweet payback when it does ! 2022 is just around the corner, and I’ve got a feeling that the fan that is filling the Democrats sails at the present time will be covering them with something other than cool air after that election. We just have to have patience, and pray that they don’t turn the keys to our ride over to the Chinese, or bankrupt us before then.

  6. To sum all of Peter Welsh up in as few words as possible;he has shown has no respect for Vermonters,he does not love the USA,he does not follow the Constitution he has sworn to uphold,and has only hatred for Donald Trump! He is also part of a Democratic scheme to Impeach a President not in office,and do it without the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court,which is Unconstitutional,an he and others know they are lying! I am very tired of Democrats waisting our money and doing nothing to help Americans!!

  7. Pete – Such a profoundly dishonest hack. He is nothing but a liar and each and every one of his actions, followed up by his dishonest reasoning for his actions lay the phony essence of his core to bear. How does he get votes? It blows my mind. When David was fleeing Saul, he prayed, ” let the wicked fall into the nets the set for me ” I pray this happens to Pete.

  8. Why do vermonters keep electing this hack? Maybe they don’t? If elections were fraudulent in other states, maybe the machines used in vermont can be manipulated?

    • Carla, People like Peter Welch keep getting elected because of the dynamic shift that started taking place in the late 60s when a lot of the people that came here from out of state to go to prep schools, and liberal colleges here in Vermont decided that they liked it here, and stayed. You think Curly is a “hack” ? Go to Montpelier when Legislature is in session, and see for yourself the pool of fools that we have up, and coming to replace this present lot of loons ? It’s scary ! Until more reasonable people decide to run for office, and give citizens of Vermont an alternative to the loony left for us to vote for the future for the political moderates, and the right here in Vermont is not exactly rosey.
