Schumer's Senate shocker: Substantive Bills are passing (seriously)

Under Chuck Schumer’s leadership, America is seeing that Mitch McConnell was the problem, not the Senate.


excerpts:

Senators passed an anti-lynching law after literally 200 failed attempts, gave sexual misconduct claims firmer legal footing and approved sweeping postal reform. That’s on top of $14 billion for Ukraine as well as a long-awaited reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act as part of a massive spending bill, not to mention last year’s huge bipartisan infrastructure bill.

Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is hoping to add a couple more bipartisan wins soon on expanding semiconductor manufacturing as part of a China competitiveness measure as well as limiting the cost of insulin to $35. Those follow-up victories are not guaranteed, but Schumer is feeling good enough to brag a little about how much meaningful legislation has cleared the chamber’s 60-vote threshold in the last five weeks.

“Mitch McConnell may have had 53 votes, but he never put many bills on the floor. When we can get the votes, we want to get it done,” Schumer said in an interview. “With 50 votes, we get a lot more done than they do with 53 votes, because they’re not that interested in getting the government to help people.”

“When we can be bipartisan, we will. But we’re not going to shy away from things that are important that Republicans won’t go for,” Schumer said. “And will there be some votes on the floor where we may not win, but at least we will see where each member stands on important issues, important to the American people? That will happen.”

Not every senator is going out of their way to praise the Senate’s bipartisan streak: “You mean we were productive because the government didn’t shut down? There you go!” said Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). “Do you want a scoop? ... I heard that all 100 members brush their teeth in the morning.”

“95 percent of the time seems to be spent on partisan stuff, and 5 percent on bipartisan stuff. They’ve realized they’ve needed some accomplishments. I’m all for that,” said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).

Adding a quippy reference to the love-ins of the 1967 musical “Hair,” he added: “But I don’t think the age of Aquarius has broken out or anything.”

Schumer has yet to put on the floor the Marijuana Reform bills submitted by both sides.

It is far easier to promote anyone not as program socialist as no good haters. Getting it done is a dying nation. As all must be paid off. It does not even occur to yo that the media/entertainers live the most royal lives in human history as they push socialism for others taking money from neighbors to give to other neighbors. All working class earning a fair wage in non privileged jobs are paying 20% of their salaries just in thieving with stores and government programs and in their bills.

Schumer is a snake. Mitch is a turtle. We already have laws against murder and sex assault is already illegal. All that time was pandering and theater

LOL.

You should not have opened with passing the 'anti lynching law.' A bullshit virtue signaling law if there ever was one.

Sending aid to Ukraine? That passed itself, there was never any real resistance to aiding Ukraine, only how much aid there was and will be.

If you read through these "bipartisan", bills, they do nothing for the country or the populace. They're complete trash. It's beyond appalling.

Yup it is. Our best outcome is gridlock between the two worthless parties.

That has been a long time strategy for certain voters. I wonder if that strategy is still viable today with the leftist-Marxist death grip on the Democrat party and the traditional MSM though. Leftists have taken over the Teacher's Union, some schools, most traditional media and now the Presidency.
