Sounds like legislators are running into some issues with legislation to support Americans during this âNational Emergency.â Color us shocked they canât work together to get something passed.
CONGRESS (TEMPORARILY?) PARALYZED
â House still finalizing technical corrections to coronavirus bill
â @replouiegohmert currently holding it up anyway, insisting bill be read on the floor, which would require House returning
â Senate fighting about other issues
â Kasie Hunt (@kasie) March 16, 2020
Issues in the House because theyâre working for a clean bill.
Just want to add that itâs Republicans in both the House and the Senate that are holding things up. I thought about not saying this given the gravity of the situation, but people need to know. https://t.co/DnoPiAWIJ0

Oh f**k off, Brian.
That means fork. Yeah, thatâs it.
1) The House met twice already today, gaveled in and gaveled outâŚand thus, have not approved the techincal changes to the coronavirus bill. That is a problem of substantial proportions. Hse can't send coronavirus bill to Senate until it re-passes it

Brian just said itâs Republicans holding it up but Democrats have a majority in the House âŚ hrm.
People can email their own Representative and Senators to learn where they stand, can't they?
You are not using your blue check responsibly, Bri.

Letâs not pretend he ever really uses it responsibly.
Gravity of the situation? Yet Nancy Pelosi and Democrats wanted to cram $1 Billion in funding for abortion into original draft. WTF does abortion funding have to do with #coronovarius
Spare us your faux outrage sir.

We like how he says he didnât really want to play politics with the gravity of the situation BUUUUT he totally will.
So itâs a clean bill Brian without any progressive add-ins? Didnât think so. You a- holes canât help yourselves.
â Lawrence Kiedrowski (@LKiedrowski) March 16, 2020
No, they canât.
Time to end the normal political bullshit. No one wants to hear anyone blame anyone else. Just work on helping people.

There yaâ go.
Dude they have a constitutional duty to review, amend, challenge, change etc.
I do not want a rubber stamp Congress, even more important not to have that in an EMERGENCY.
