VT: The Senate was working all night as Vice President Kamala Harris used her tie breaking vote to overrun GOP opposition to the bill Biden promised, a promise kept. It took 15 hours while endless amendments were introduced and voted on.
The bill goes back to the house for a “tune up” but the votes are already there when it hits the Senate again. Without this bill, totally opposed by the GOP, millions of Americans would have gone hungry. Note that over 5000 Americans died while tens of millions of doses of vaccine are missing and that’s no accident.
The GOP complains that this is a total lack of unity. Hilarious.
GOP tried to push through Trump’s wall as part of the stimulus package and to cut federal aid to schools.
The illegal US embassy in Palestine territory was added to the bill, something that will cripple US credibility in the Middle East even further.
