BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – The House passed a bill 396-27 to increase security for Supreme Court justices’ immediate families, approving a measure that had already been passed by unanimous consent in the Senate.
The bill comes after one man was arrested for allegedly plotting to kill Justice Brett Kavanaugh and protesters demonstrated outside the homes of conservative justices following the leak of a draft opinion in a high-profile abortion case.
The bill provides for 24-hour protection for Supreme Court justices’ families, similar to what is already provided for some members of the executive and legislative branches.
All 27 nay votes were Democrats and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez spoke on their behalf.
“Why ae we offering security to Supreme Court Justices that repeatedly shoot down liberal agenda,” she began. “Even if someone were to bump them all off, most of them would be conservative. The idiot democrats that voted for the additional security didn’t do the math, and this is why the stupidity in my own party no longer shocks me.”
