House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Thursday officially ended Pelosi’s unconstitutional proxy voting scheme.
“No more proxy voting,” McCarthy announced Thursday. “Effective immediately, Members of Congress have to show up to work if they want their vote to count.”

On May 27, 2020 the House held its first ‘proxy vote’ since Congress first met in 1789 thanks to Nancy Pelosi.
71 Democrats voted ‘by proxy’ in its first vote since adoption of its party-line rule.
In 2020, ONE Democrat in Maryland voted SEVEN TIMES on legislation in Congress in districts he didn’t even represent.
For more than two years Nancy Pelosi unilaterally extended her unconstitutional proxy voting scheme.
Pelosi cited Covid and said that a “public health emergency is in effect” in her announcement extending proxy voting through the end of 2022.
McCarthy previously asked the US Supreme Court to overturn Pelosi’s proxy voting scheme but the high court declined to hear his challenge.
Good bye, proxy voting!
