So, again to process, McConnell obtained the vote, 80-12 to invoke cloture to maneuver to the veto override, after which did simply that, apparently as a result of Senate Democrats agreed to not pressure the Senate to attend 30 hours underneath cloture for the invoice to “ripen,” and all cling round till Sunday to take the ultimate vote. They overrode Trump’s veto, 81-13. Completely satisfied New 12 months, asshole.
The $2,000 survival checks are lifeless, killed by McConnell. The one approach they’re revived is with the election of Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock in Georgia on Tuesday and a brand new Democratic majority within the Senate. Till then, right here’s Sanders’ argument to Republicans on how hypocritical it’s for them to oppose serving to People.
