Updates: The Freedumb Caucus Help ‘Tank’ the “They’re Taking Away Our Gas Stoves!” Bill
As News Views reported earlier today, the Clown House scheduled a vote on a bill that would protect our gas stoves. The Bill failed in part because the Freedumb Caucus voted with the majority of the Democratic Party to tank the bill in retaliation to Qevie’s willingness to work with the Biden Administration to negotiate a deal on raising the debt ceiling.
The House Freedom Caucus on Tuesday tanked legislation to restrict federal regulation of natural gas stoves in an act of defiance against House GOP leadership.
The vote was in retaliation for the passage of Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s (R-CA) deal with President Joe Biden to raise the debt ceiling, which the Freedom Caucus strongly opposed as too weak on cutting federal spending.
Twelve Republicans voted against moving forward with debate on four pieces of legislation dealing with the regulation of gas stoves, joining 208 Democrats to block the measures.

Exclusive: Mar-a-Lago pool flood raises suspicions among prosecutors in Trump classified documents case
An employee at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence drained the resort’s swimming pool last October and ended up flooding a room where computer servers containing surveillance video logs were kept, sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
While it’s unclear if the room was intentionally flooded or if it happened by mistake, the incident occurred amid a series of events that federal prosecutors found suspicious.
At least one witness has been asked by prosecutors about the flooded server room as part of the federal investigation into Trump’s handling of classified documents, according to one of the sources.
