"Senate Democrats were hoping to kick off debate Thursday on their $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, but first had to make it through a Republican senator's hours-long delay tactic. Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson went through with his plan to to make Senate clerks read out loud the entire 628 page COVID-19 relief bill before the chamber can begin debate.

The next step comes Friday. The Senate will convene at 9 a.m. for three hours of debate. After that will be what's known as the "vote-a-rama" of amendments. Senate Republicans are reportedly considering dragging that process out into the overnight hours.In a tweet, Johnson estimated the full reading of the bill could take 10 hours. According to Politico, Senate Democratic leaders estimated it would take four to five hours. The Senate clerk began reading the bill at 3:21 p.m. Eastern. The clerks took turns reading it out loud. They wrapped up at 2:04 a.m. Friday -- 10 hours, 43 minutes."


Sen. Johnson was totally right; it did take 10 hours...lol.....he totally triggered those Senate staffers on this one.....serves the Dems right; after all, they are the ones who tried to stall and block the first COVID relief bill after the Republicans worked so hard to write it and get it passed in the House and Senate; in order to help working Americans and small businesses...

This bill only has 5% approval with Americans (If you don't count the other 65%) -- so the Republican calculation on this is right -- No one wants some socialist $1400 checks, No one wants any deficit busting vaccine money, No one wants your Nazi style funding of state governments; and no one wants any of these Chinese communist $3000 child tax credits and the rest of it....Reps are bravely trying to drag this out and hopefully stop this far left radical take over of our country....

LOL!

That bill is welfare for failed Democrat leadership.

That is the kind of sorry shit we got when the Democrats stole the 2020 election.
If that is the fantasy you have to tell yourself....

It must suck to be a sycophant for a party that offers bullshit grievances instead of solutions

10 hours to read a fucking bill.
Congress is a goddamn joke
A bill that is public and could have been read by Johnson himself if it was so important to him....

The joke is Ron Johnson and the bitch ass games Republicans play when they want to block a policy simply because it wasn't their idea

It must suck to be a sycophant for frauds pushing a "relief" bill that has less than 10% of it dedicated for the alleged "relief".

You are confused Moon Bat.

The biggest part of that filthy bill (along side giving it to foreigners) was to give money to the failed Democrat states and cities that have fucked everything up. The greedy Teacher's unions, which have become a cash cow for the Party of Moon Bats, will do very well.

When Democrats get power the first thing they do is raid the Treasury for their greedy special interest groups. That is one of the many reasons why we should never elect Democrats. They are the scum of America. They fuck up everything they touch and we taxpayers wind up paying for their failure.

The gop ignores that it's own stimulus bills gave more to the more wealthy and totally fucked over mom and pop's for corporate welfare (and Muchin Trump and McConnell planned)

And in an effort to get more middle ground support, Biden pissed off his left wing over min wage, and they've more accurately targeted the stimulus to those who actually need money to spend. And it strikes me as more than ironic that my daughter, who really does need the money, STILL hasn't gotten ANY of her stimulus. It may have more stimulus than absolutley necessary. But it's not a time to go small. The GOP didn't go small with its tax cuts that were aimed at increasing growth to 4%, and is STILL resulting in less revenue.

The gop is betting on most Americans eventually being against the stimulus, and they came to view the Trump/McConnell tax cuts. And the gop is trying to convince those making 40K that this is not in their interests. And the previous two didn't help my kid beyond what we could still afford to send her, because the gop never actually sent the money.

This bill has more oversight -- as for the previous stimulus; Republicans fought tooth and nail to limit oversight over dispersing of funds....


And much of what is in this COVID package was in the CARES ACT -- which republicans voted for......

They are voting against it because the guy who can ultimately take credit for the bill has a D next to his name.....

Exactly. The D's were ideologically opposed to how McConnell/Trump tried a stimulus. Here the gop has already passed similar bills with, as you say, less oversite.

But the question is whether people making 40K will view this as a giveaway to the rich, while forgetting what the gop previously did.

As long as you acknowledge that when a Republican administration did the PPP --- they didn't have much oversight...


Among the changes will be a new rule that encourages smaller businesses to get loans instead of before when large businesses vacuumed up the loans because of their relationships with the banks...

Also....oversight that sees to it small contractors and self-employed people get access to PPP funds instead of how they were treated before...

And also a Second Chance rule that allows small business owners with non-felony convictions on their background to get PPP funding...they were barred before....

Do you have a problem with these changes??

Are these oversight measures communist to you??

Don't call it a Covid relief bill when billions of pork is added to it.

The old Lindsey Graham joke about Ted Cruz seems to apply here.
If someone were to murder Ron Johnson on the floor of the Senate, and the Senate was the jury -
They wouldn't be convicted. :)
