Over the weekend, the Senate voted to approve the new stimulus bill along party lines.
There were some revisions in it and those are going to need to go through the House of Representatives once again to get approval before heading to Biden's desk.
But before it got that far, Kamala Harris made a vote during the process that was something very interesting to see.
Kamala Harris acted as the tie-breaking vote on whether or not to hear debate on the new stimulus bill that was being proposed to be voted on.
The House of Representatives has already voted and passed the bill and it is expected to pass the Senate as well with Kamala Harris being the tie-breaking vote once again.
But the thing that made this really interesting is that they are reading the bill on the floor...the whole thing...all 628 pages of it!
Fox News reported,
But the debate on the bill was quickly scuttled by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., who requested the entire 628-page legislation be read aloud by the Senate clerks in advance of any discussion on the merits of the proposal.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., had requested that the reading of the bill be waived, which is customary, but Johnson objected, which kicked off a marathon reading session by Senate clerks that Johnson had previously predicted could take 10 hours.
"All I'm trying to do is make this a more deliberative process [and] obviously shine the light on this abusive and obscene amount of money," Johnson said earlier Thursday of his request.
Sen. Schumer has pledged to stay in session until they finish this well, "No matter how long it takes, the Senate is going to stay in session to finish the bill – this week. The American people deserve nothing less."
He's such a jerk. I hate how he and other Democrats use Americans as a tool to get their agenda. They always want to throw in how hard they want to work for the American people, but when the majority of voters wanted the election to be investigated, they called them conspiracy theorists, terrorists, and everything else.
Regardless, this bill is likely going to pass so there's not much that can be done about it now.
