Democrats across the country are unhappy with President Trump’s threat to shut the border with Mexico, and Rep. TJ Cox is no exception.
But for the freshman Democrat from Fresno, it’s all about the cows. Local, Central Valley cows.
“Landing in the belly of the beast, Congressman TJ Cox decided to conduct his first Town Hall in Hanford. Though Cox enjoyed a decisive victory in Kern County, he lost to Hanford’s favorite son, former Representative David Valadao in Kings County, a prevailing reason why he decided to hold this event in the county seat.”
Freshman Rep. T.J. Cox starts his surprising second career as a federal watchdog today, when the Democrat from California's San Joaquin Valley leads his first hearing as chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee's Oversight and Investigations panel.
In that spirit, Rep. T.J. Cox, a freshman Democratic congressman from California, introduced a bill last week that would force the U.S. Treasury to provide $6,000 no-interest loans to federal employees during the government shutdown. The bill has 86 co-sponsors and is in committee at the moment.
Rep. TJ Cox has submitted his first bill to Congress, one he said would require the U.S. Department of the Treasury to offer no-interest loans of up to $6,000 to federal workers currently not being paid due to the partial government shutdown.
Reasonable people on both sides of the political debate can disagree about the right way to stop the flow of illegal drugs into our country and regulate our immigration system. But the current crisis, manufactured by the president’s decision to shut down our government unless he gets a border wall, does nothing to address these concerns.
