SO.... Yurtle does just as was predicted after he pushed for a procedural vote on this Bill that he knew would fail because he didn't have the votes, which it just did fail.
"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell lambasted Democrats, who voted against the bill.
"We're fiddling with the emotions of the American people, fiddling with the markets, fiddling with our health care," he said.
"Step up," he added. "Help us reach an agreement so we can do what needs to be done for the American people no later than tomorrow."
The final vote tally was 47-47, well short of the 60 votes needed to advance the bill. Republicans hold a 53-47 edge in the chamber, although several GOP senators, including Rand Paul, who had tested positive for the coronavirus, were not present to vote. Others, such as Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, were in quarantine as a precaution.
"In the midst of an unprecedented national crisis, Republicans can't seriously expect us to tell people in our communities who are suffering that we shortchanged hospitals, students, workers, and small businesses but gave big corporations hundreds of billions of dollars in a secretive slush fund," said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., whose home state is one of the hardest-hit by the disease's outbreak."
So it's Nero McConnell who is fiddling with specious votes while America burns and he blames Democrats.
Republicans must be SO proud of the Leaders they've given us in the Sen and the WH.
