Kamala Harris breaks tie to advance massive COVID relief bill

Vice President Kamala Harris provided the necessary tie-breaking vote Thursday in the Senate to advance discussion of President Joe Biden’s massive $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus bill.

Her vote sided with Democrats to advance the legislation along party lines. However, efforts quickly halted as Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson requested the traditional reading of the full bill.

The current stimulus bill includes 628 pages. Public reading of the legislation could take 10 hours.

Fox News reported Senator Johnson stated, “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.”

Senate Republicans have largely rejected Biden’s legislation for including political pet projects. Less than 10 percent of the $1.9 trillion budgeted will go directly to COVID-19 relief.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer responded, “No matter how long it takes, the Senate is going to stay in session to finish the bill – this week.”

Once the bill is read, Senate debate will include 20 hours of discussion. The amendment process will take place following this time, with conservatives likely seeking votes on issues included in the bill ranging from abortion to immigration.

Democrats hope to see the bill approved and on President Biden’s desk by March 14. Current COVID-19 unemployment aid programs expire on that date.

If successful, Vice President Harris may be invited to the Senate once again to cast a second tie-breaker vote. She’ll gladly oblige, especially when the bill supports the left’s full agenda of progressive projects.

Democrats are upset that the bill will be read because they don’t know, want to know, or even care what’s in it.

The Democrats still don’t get it Stop putting your pet projects in front of what the American people need you politicians have become very greedy Trump has become so popular because he put American people first. I want to know when the Democrats if ever will do this I don’t think ever. When a single mom has to make a Choice rather to put gas in vehicle to get to work to provide for a home or feed their children then the wrong people are in power Trump managed to have lowest gas prices I’ve ever seen and I’m an old lady if he could do it Biden could he rather line his pockets with your money that’s why they bought back lobbying they just think we are so stupid God sees everything and he don’t like UGLY .

The HOUSE Demorats promised the dem mayors/governors who allowed the ongoing riots in (damage) their city and misused money they used for other reason in the past that is needed to cover their backs to support their next election would be their when they take over the W.H. and the CONGRESS.

It’s a way they launder money. Give large amounts of money to different organizations, etc., just to receive a kick back. Supposedly, the 500 million given to the Kennedy Center warranted a 50 million dollar kick back.

The left consists of people completely off the rails. They are all about power, and hell and be damned about the people, their rights and the Constitution. Common sense has no place in their thought processes, and is completely uncommon throughout the Democratic Party. I can only hope sanity will ultimately prevail, where the term “illegal” will again mean exactly that, and where the self-serving attributes of those in power will lose out completely to “we the people”.

The Evil Members of Congress will continue to steal from ALL AMERICANS until they are executed.. The actions being shown by the Dems and some traitor Repubs are Treasonous. Definition: In Article III, Section 3 of the United States Constitution, treason is specifically limited to levying war against the US, or adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. Penalty: U.S. Code Title 18: Death, or not less than 5 years’ imprisonment (minimum fine of $10,000, if not sentenced to death). I believe these actions ARE A WAR AGIANST ALL OF AMERICA….

Biden and Harris are not the kind that “we” can trust! They think they are above the law and want to do what’s self beneficial to them and their pockets! Everything they want to put into law, the other side ( Republicans) need to look at it very closely and fight and stop if it’s not going to benefit the people and all there is , is for their own selfish and fraudulent agenda! Please please! We need protections from this evil people who only think everyday how and how much they can steal from us! Both of them must go and impeach ! They are so evil, even the devil in them they cannot hide!

With less than ten percent of this bill applying to covid, how in the world can a person with any intelligence vote for it as covid relief. Sounds like a lot of waste to me. Why is so much tax money going out of the country? This is NOT a foreign aid bill as proposed by our government.

They do not care because they think their money and their power will keep them from the fray……..its all been done before look at all the wars . And they will continue until there is nothing left of our country in which we love and hold so dear. First propaganda teachers and the media is also on board. Next step let’s throw law out the window….and now let’s ruin our country…..I hope they are proud of themselves…..personally it sickens me.

The Evil that lives in Washington is going to destroy our world. They are the rich that will not be taxed, they are the ones who get paid whether they work or not. They are the ones who have no worries, they are protected by walls. Our wall is being dissembled to let those who will say nothing, follow all they are told, and live the lives of freedom that we were all meant to live. They say the rich get richer well guess what they are the rich! Americans need to open their eye’s and see the wolves in sheep clothing.

Sorry Marlene, Hunter Biden will never be held accountable for anything. In the new system, where the 1st and 2nd Amendments can be removed from The Constitution with an “executive order”, no Leftist will ever answer for anything ever again. All Conservatives will be ground into the dirt under the jackboots of the Communist Storm Troopers. China whistles, and their lackey Biden bows before answering. China owns the Biden family, and it shows.

SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Well, Old Joe and the Ho’s administration is in it’s third month. Because of stupidly attacking each other, democrats in the House and Senate have made them invalid. So Old Joe signed over a half a hundred EOs that he never read, trying to erase Trump. They even came up with a failed impeachment of a private citizen. Almost all the campaign promises Old Joe made have fallen flat on their faces. So he ordered a new war because that is where democrat power shines. As for the Ho, she is no more relevant in any supportive areas than the worn out girdle she wears. Mostly because she got to the top on her back but at 56 years old, even that’s quickly wearing thin.

I think that, not that I can, That we need to launch an investigation into what is really going on in the White House. I don’t think that Biden is running the country. And I would like to find out who is, that was not elected to. We need to get an independent investigation, I don’t think that we could trust Wray, or anyone in the administration. We need an outside investigation, into what exactly is going on in the White House, and we need it now!

We here in Texas are so thankful that we have a governor that has some common sense. Unlike states like New York or California, that treat their citizens like their slaves. We have a governor that understands people and their needs. We have a leader that leads, he does not try to dominate the citizens in his state. He does not treat people like he owns them. He gives them the respect that they deserve.
Unlike this so called president that wants to kill Texans, by importing illegals to spreading diseases. They are trying to come in when they have diseases which they are then carrying to other place, and get other people infected, this is nothing more than biological warfare, that the president of the USA is conducting against the people, of the country that he is suppose to protect. This just goes to show you that he is really mentally sick, and needs help. Someone tell Jill that she should start getting serious about this.
