Schaumburg, IL – Congressman Raja Krishamoorthi sent a letter to the House of Representatives yesterday saying because of the ongoing public health emergency, he was unable to vote in person for a $700 billion tax and spend bill today.

Krishanmoorthi is derelict in his duties as Representative of the 8th District.  He and his allies are getting ready to unleash 87,000 new IRS agents on hard working Americans, and he has the audacity to shirk his duty as he’s burying his constituents in more taxes. Instead, Boulder, Colorado’s Representative Joe Neguse will be casting your Congressman’s vote for him. Neguse represents a district Joe Biden won by 30% and Neguse also votes with Biden 100% of the time

What is Rep. Krishnamoorthi’s excuse for not making it to Washington? There are 247 daily flights from Chicago in the direction of Washington DC, not to mention that the 8th District is home to one of the world’s largest and busiest airports.
