Fox News reports:

DeFazio, who will step down after serving in the House of Representatives for 36 years, becomes the 19th Democratic lawmaker to retire or run for different office in 2022 elections, as the party tries to defend it’s razor thin majority in the chamber. Twelve House Republicans are retiring or seeking another office next year.

“With humility and gratitude I am announcing that I will not seek re-election next year,” the congressman said in a statement on Wednesday.

“It’s time for me to pass the baton to the next generation so I can focus on my health and well-being,” the 74-year old lawmaker said.

The congressman, known as a political firebrand and populist, represents Oregon’s 4th Congressional district, which has been in Democratic hands for nearly half a century. But the blue leaning district is expected to become more favorable to the Democrats next year, thanks to the new redistricting map passed by the party, which controls the state government.

If the dumbocraps had any common sense, which we know they don’t, they would start retiring,their seats, because the arse=kicking they are going to get is mind=bending,most will be voted out, and this death party will become totally irrelevant for yrs to come. U have destroyed your party and will pay dearly for it.Worse butt kicking than obuthead,took in 2010, the end of the party.

Dems are dropping one by one like flies sipping poison honey until even the vilest of the vile, Pelosi and her henchmen, join in to drink the honey and drop like the rest of their motley crew of corrupted vermin! America will then be able to renew and grow the most freedom loving Constitution defenders our nation has ever known!

We do not want them to retire!! They retire then they get lifetime benefits that We the People get stuck footing the bill for.

Instead we want them to run for and lose their re-election bid. That way they do not get to claim those lifetime retirement benefits and We the People don’t have to pay for their retirement
