The Faithful Execution of the Law Act of 2014 (H.R. 3973) was a bill that would direct the United States Department of Justice to report to the United States Congress whenever any federal agency refrains from enforcing laws or regulations for any reason.
It shouldn't have been a controversial vote - basically this just provides transparency about federal agencies knowingly break the law.
That sounds pretty good, right?
In the report, the government would have to explain why it had decided not to enforce that law.
The bill was introduced in the United States House of Representatives during the 113th United States Congress.
Not surprisingly, the Democrats voted against this one.
More specifically - Beto O'Rourke voted against it. Pelosi did too, but let's talk about Beto - the guy who wants to be the Junior Senator from Texas.
If you're from Texas, your next Senator might be a guy who doesn't think Federal agencies have to disclose when they don't follow the law.
Gosh, that sounds like some shady, cronyism politics. No wonder Democrats love Beto.
Incidentally, only one Republican voted against the Bill - Rohrabacher. He's from California.
