Kamala Harris Breaks Tie on COVID Relief Bill

Early Friday morning, the Senate approved a budget resolution that prepares President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill for passage without Republican support. The senate was evenly divided between Republicans and Demorats, so Vice President Kamala Harris is the tie-breaking vote.

Lawmakers approved the resolution shortly after 5:30 a.m. after an all-night “vote-a-rama,” which brought hours of votes on dozens of amendments, many intended to force legislators to take a public stand on unrelated controversial issues.

The resolution allows Democrats to move forward with an eventual coronavirus relief bill that can circumvent the 60-vote threshold required to end a filibuster. They could now potentially pass the future bill with a simple majority.

The House must now pass the same version of the budget measure before lawmakers can begin writing the final relief package. That vote may come later Friday.

The budget resolution gives committees the authority to draft legislation reflecting Biden’s proposed $1.9 trillion pandemic relief package. It’s expected to eventually include $1,400 stimulus checks for most Americans and expanded pandemic unemployment aid.

Republicans oppose the size of Biden’s proposal and have offered a smaller alternative. The president said he “will not settle” on his pandemic relief bill.

  1. Here comes the end of America as we know it. A dictator instead of e President. Your guns will be next and we won’t be able to defend ourselves or fight back in any way shape or form. Our savings and retirement will be stolen by comrade Joe. Peons of america wake up now.

  2. Of course she did, just like bailing out criminals, she is now bailing out the cities that BLM and Antifa burnt down. No outrage on her own people burning, looting and rioting.

  3. I think that Biden will sooner or be impeached. People that voted for him are already regretting it. Oh they will be too proud to publicly admit it, but I can assure many of them see they made a drastic mistake. Once all the corruption and fraud is uncovered and sent to the Supreme Court, President Donald J Trump will be declared the official winner and serve his 2nd term.

  4. John…I hear you, lot’s of people hear you and I agree….It’s just a matter of time and
    “from your lips to God’s ears !!!”
