Here is the full list of Members of Congress who voted by proxy on the Covid relief bill. Plenty of CPAC attendees included:
The House passed Biden's $1.9 trillion Covid-19 stimulus package very early this morning.
I explain what this means and what you need to know about this legislation now that it heads to the Senate with @Christi_Paul and @VictorBlackwell this morning on New Day!
And here is @DaniellaMicaela (who was up early to deliver the news) breaking down everything in the package:
.@WhipClyburn made it clear that the White House and Senate weren't interested in overruling the parliamentarian or ending the filibuster, so:
"We'll come back with an independent, stand-alone piece of legislation and we are going to pass it again and hope that they respond."
I asked @SpeakerPelosi if she agreed the Senate should kill the filibuster or overrule the parliamentarian to get the minimum wage hike in the Covid relief bill. She didnt take the bait.
“As a matter of practice, I don't get involved in the rules of the United States Senate,”
