Will Senate pass the Covid relief package? ?
- Elwood BluesLv 71 month ago
Yes. The democrats will use the same maneuver, 'budget reconciliation' that republicans used to pass Trump's $1.5 trillion tax cut. That way they don't need a single republican vote to pass the package.
They need every single democrat to vote yes, so i really doubt it. It’s too much money.

It does not need one republican vote to pass. That was done intentionally, also why minimum raise increase can't be included in it. There were dems against it in the house, so we will see how that translates over to the senate. All it takes is one to say hell no. But of course, just like in the house where it did not need one republican vote, the republicans were blamed for the hold up.

What the democrats have done is roll the COVID relief bill into the overall government spending bill in order to make easier to hide what is in it and make it harder to vote against. Only about 10% of the spending has anything to do with COVID and there $trillions in pork spending included. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/feb/24/l...

No. This bill will bankrupt our nation. We cannot afford it.
It will be passed only by the Democrats, Republicans are back to doing what they do best. Obstruct.
