Congress has headed home for the remainder of the year, with the U.S. Senate doing so without holding a vote on the “Build Back Better” bill. BBB is the legislation that would spend a few trillion more dollars but cost “zero” according to many Dems while of course not in any way worsening inflation.
Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono doesn’t seem happy with how things are playing out:
Sen. @MazieHirono: "If you have a 50-50 split Senate, you can have one person — or two people — just stop everything. And that is why people in our country should know that a 50-50 Senate sucks, and we can't get things done." https://t.co/AJM2h3yoiV pic.twitter.com/ijTndicEA6

They can’t get anything done? Aww, too bad.
States elected their senators, Mazie. Maybe if your bills didn’t suck so much this wouldn’t be an issue. https://t.co/DCHE4AOECh

And Hirono needs a little help on how many senators are holding up the Dems’ BBB dream:
Or even 51 or 52 people!!

If the Democrat leadership wants more people on board maybe they should consider something less insane.
Feature, not a bug.

The less you get “done” the better.

When we’re talking about the government, getting nothing done is usually a pretty good result.

But maybe Sen. Hirono will be happy soon enough:
Good news. It’s likely to change a year from now

She might not like how her “problem” is resolved.
