Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert riled up Twitter users on Thursday after voting in opposition to a bill proposed in the lower chamber that would reauthorize the National Marrow Donor Program, a program that matches donors with people in need of a bone marrow donor.

Despite two no votes, the bill passed on the House floor 415-2, with a total of 12 lawmakers, including GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn, not casting a vote.

Rep. Greene's spokesperson Nick Dyer said in a statement to The Independent: "Nothing in this bill prevents the funding of aborted fetal tissue by taxpayers. It opens the door for the [National Institutes of Health] to use this bill to research the remains of babies who were murdered in the womb." When Boebert was asked why she voted no, the lawmaker told The Independent that "this bill added hundreds of millions of dollars to the national debt, while not receiving a [Congressional Budget Office] score or going through the committee process."

Yet, the alleged problems raised about the bill by Greene and Boebert have nothing to do with the bill they voted no on. As CNN noted, the National Marrow Donor Program "keeps an inventory of cord blood and a database of bone marrow donors for matches with patients diagnosed with leukemia and other fatal blood diseases and is not related to the fetal tissue argument raised by Greene or the argument raised by Boebert."

Aside from voting -- and occasionally engaging in pointless time-wasting measures -- she doesn't have many official duties at all. Quite simply: It's impossible for her to have less power within the halls of Congress. © ALEX EDELMAN/AFP/Getty Images US Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, Republican of Georgia, answers questions from the media during a press conference on Capitol Hill on February 5, 2021 in Washington, DC.

Marjorie Taylor Greene has been pretty busy getting suspended from Twitter and pushing to award officers who "fight back against Black Lives Matter terror" days after a 20-year-old Black man was shot and killed by the police. "Since you sponsored the Green New Deal and have a degree in Economics, I'm sure you are more than qualified," Greene tweeted, unprompted, on Wednesday. "A debate between AOC and I on the Green New Deal economic policy would be informative for the American People.

Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) are starting a right-wing caucus in Congress that seeks to “follow in President Trump’s footsteps,” which could prove yet another thorn in the side of Republican leaders already struggling to unite a bitterly divided party. Greene and Gosar are also members of the House Freedom Caucus, which has adopted rogue tactics in recent weeks, such as attempting to slow the passage of the .9 trillion coronavirus relief bill . Members of the group have also voted against legislation that passed with broad, bipartisan support, including a bill to award

Democratic member of the California State Assembly Buffy Wicks tweeted, "Who votes against the National Marrow Donor Program, you ask? Well, [Marjorie Taylor Greene] and Lauren Boebert—that's who. The 'new face' of the Republican Party, everyone!"

A countless number of Twitter users blasted the GOP duo over their no vote. "@RepBoebert & @mtgreenee are the white version of Diamond and Silk," wrote Atlantic writer Jemele Hill. Bellingcat journalist Robert Evans tweeted, "standing up for liberty means fighting bone marrow donors." "I'm a blood cancer survivor. I didn't think Boebert could get much worse, and yet, here we are," healthcare advocate Laura Packard stated.

Kinzinger says fellow Republicans who join America First caucus should lose committees .
Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger said GOP lawmakers who plan on joining the “America First Caucus" should be removed from their committee assignments. A document about the America First Caucus described it as championing “Anglo-Saxon political traditions” and warning that mass immigration puts the “unique identity” of the USA at risk.
