Representing the 4th District of California
  • In Opposition to Impeachment

    I cannot think of a more petty, vindictive and gratuitous act than to impeach an already defeated President a week before he is to leave office. President-elect Biden’s promise to heal the nation becomes a hollow mockery in the harsh reality of this unconstitutional act.

Just how long is the road we keep kicking this can down? This is another continuing resolution that extends federal spending until December 11, 2020, in order to get past the election. It’s a good bet we’ll see another one to get past the inauguration. And then to get past summer recess. What’s not a good bet is that this Congress will deal with the horrendous deficit it has created by ignoring its budget responsibilities.
The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 already prohibits discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth, or a related condition. This bill adds an undefined mandate for “reasonable accommodation” which opens a pandora’s box of litigation. Large corporations might bear this burden, small employers could find it devastating. Ironically, the unintended effect could result in employers avoiding the potential liability when making hiring decisions. It also cedes law-making authority to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to carry out this act – meaning the EEOC would make law, enforce the law, adjudicate the law and profit from fines imposed under the law – something the Founders sought to avoid by separating legislative, executive and judicial powers.
