Where are the Texas fugitives?

Every morning, I pick up my Dallas Morning News and check the front page.  I can't recall the last time that "The Texas 57" were a headline or front page story.  I don't see them anywhere.   Maybe they are busy Zooming each other in the nation's capital.

President Biden won't see them.  I think that's common sense given that the President is 78 and you don't want him around people who have got COVID.  Nevertheless, the "57" are not happy............The "Texas 57" are facing a few realities:Nobody is talking about them.  At the same time, they get more hysterical every time that someone turns on a microphone; and, the U.S. Congress is not helping much, according to this analysis in the Texas Tribune:    ..........To Read More....

My Take - Let's pause and enjoy this schadenfreude moment.  

Okay, now, let's think about this.  What do they think is going to happen to them when they return to Texas?  

First, they're stiffing their constituents.  The claim there's no taxpayer money in involved for this little hissy fit of childish petulance, but the governor has kept the Texas legislature in session until they return and do their jobs.  Cost?  A million or more, and all of these Texas Legislators, who are still getting paid their salaries, are also getting a per diem rate of $221.00 a day as long as the legislative session continues.  Even if they're not in the state, and now Texas Democrat party is asking people for donations to provide "care packages" for these misfits.  

I wonder just how well this is going to play with their constituents back in Texas in the next election?
