Trump’s efforts to confront the unprecedented economic impact of Covid-19, Massy was not wrong in seeking a roll call, just as House Leadership was not wrong in proceeding to a voice vote. Both approaches are authorized. Massey lost. That doesn’t make him evil or an obstructionist. A little caution is always appropriate, especially when the price tag, however justified, is in the Trillions!!
