Three Republicans in the House voted with Democrats on their police reform legislation bill Thursday,  one day after Senate Democrats shut down Republicans’ police reform bill.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi worked with the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to come up with legislation on racial profiling and police brutality as protests continue across the country over the death of George Floyd. The bill passed with a vote of 236 to 181. The legislation was created by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and focuses on racial profiling and police brutality as protests continue across the country for George Floyd.

These Three Republicans Voted In Favor Of The Bill: 

  • Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick
  • Texas Rep. Will Hurd
  • Michigan Rep. Fred Upton

This comes one day after Senate Democrats blocked a Republican police reform bill on a procedural vote Wednesday without debating the legislation.

The bill needed 60 votes in order for it to move forward to a debate. The vote was 55-45. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell filed cloture Monday on the Republican police reform legislation, setting up Wednesday’s vote.

Republicans needed seven or more Democrats to vote with them in order for the legislation to advance. Senate Republicans released their police reform legislation the previous Wednesday in response to the killing of Floyd.

    These hypocrites should no longer get any protection from the police since they are back stabbing them in the back. These people are the problem and wonder if they were ever a true Republican or wannabes. It seems their are a bunch of wannabes in the Republican party these days, they are a party of Cowards and should change their party name.

    Somebody needs to give the Republicans classes on how to fight back. They are such weak wimps. If they just stood united and stopped kissing up to the Dems cause it’s never enough, this would be a great start. It’s so frustrating to watch how they fumble.

      One thing you’ve gotta give the democrats is they ALWAYS stick together, no matter the issue. Republicans don’t, they have no backbone.

    Will Hurd has always been an ass hat so this comes as no surprise, he is corrupt as they come.
