Four members of “the squad” led the Do-Nothing-Democrats to vote against a bill protecting American citizens.
An eye-opening 174 Democrats voted against a bill that would prevent the TSA from hiring known terrorists and convicted sexual predators.
By voting against the bill, the Do-Nothing-Democrats are living up to their name.
Do nothing on terrorism.
And do nothing on sexual predators.
Pelosi has not responded to a request on why so many members of her party voted against the bill. AOC, Omar, Talib, and Pressley all didn’t respond or provide any comments either.

Fortunately, thanks to overwhelming Republican support, the bill was able to pass the House.
Still, it is so shocking that the radical left-wing of the Democrat party was able to convince 174 members to vote against a bill that would protect TSA workers, federal employees, and all American citizens.
The Free Beacon highlights exactly how the vote unfolded:
Forty-two House Democrats bucked party leadership on Thursday to pass an amendment ensuring that individuals convicted of sex crimes, terrorism, and other violent offenses cannot be employed by the TSA.
Despite their support for the #MeToo movement against sexual misconduct, 174 House Democrats voted against an amendment to the Rights for Transportation Security Officers Act that alters the way TSA disciplines and fires workers. The amendment divided Democrats on Thursday despite the fact that it was written by Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood (Ill.). House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) criticized liberal lawmakers for attempting to sabotage efforts to safeguard the public from sexual predators.
"[The amendment] was pulled back by leadership because the socialist wing of the party did not want to have that amendment go forward on this bill," McCarthy said on Thursday. "When it was offered, overwhelmingly the majority of the House would like to see the TSA not hire terrorists or those who have been convicted of sexual misconduct with minors and others. But the socialist wing of the party, that controls now the Democratic Party, said that that could not be offered."
Republicans were able to include the amendment in the bill only after Underwood and 41 other Democrats broke ranks to insert the language into the bill in a 227-175 vote. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D, Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), and Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.), as well as House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D., Md.), all voted against Underwood's amendment when Rep. Debbie Lesko (R., Ariz.) put it forward in a motion to recommit—the last opportunity for a House bill to be amended before a final passage vote. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) did not vote on the motion. A top Republican aide criticized Democratic leaders for bowing to party leaders on the measure.
"It's no surprise that Democrat logic in 2020 means taking marching orders from Justice Democrats to give TSA the ability to hire the Harvey Weinsteins of the world," the aide said. "A ‘second chance' for sex offenders shouldn't include patting down traveling families."
Where is the outrage?!
Isn't the Democrat party supposed to be the "woke" when it comes to sexual predators? And what's the logic in voting to allow the TSA to refuse to hire a terrorist?
Many took to Twitter to express their astonishment.
The measure ended up passing the House with bipartisan support.
Though the squad was able to convince so many Democrats to vote against it, the bill will make its way to the Senate next week.
The proposal would give TSA employees the same protections as other federal employees.
It would also allow the TSA to discipline or fire employees who pose a risk to national security.
The Hill reports on how the measure would make Americans safer:
The House passed legislation Thursday aimed at expanding worker protections for Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officers to put them on par with other federal employees.
Lawmakers passed the measure on a 230-171 vote, with 14 Republicans joining Democrats in support of the bill.
The Rights for Transportation Security Officers Act — spearheaded by Democratic Reps. Bennie Thompson (Miss.) and Nita Lowey (N.Y.) — would provide TSA workers with full collective bargaining rights and implement whistleblower protections.
Proponents of the bill argue that TSA employees, who are among the lowest paid federal workers, should be granted the same protections enjoyed by other federal employees.
Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-Pa.) said during debate ahead of the vote that when the TSA was established after 9/11, "its administrator was given broad authority over its workforce with respect to setting up pay and workplace conditions. As such, transportation security officers, T.S.O.'s, have been unable to benefit from fair labor standards act protections or fall under the general schedule pay scale."
But critics argue that the current setup gives TSA the flexibility needed to discipline employees who violate rules that pose risks to national security.
The measure ended up passing the House in the eleventh hour.
The final amendment to the bill was the addition of the following language: "The TSA Secretary could not hire individuals who have been convicted of a sex crime, an offense involving a minor, a crime of violence, or terrorism.”
Every member of the squad voted against the amendment.
Pelosi refrained from voting.
