Late Thursday night, after more than 15 hours of rancorous debates and votes on amendments, the Senate passed a budget resolution for a massive COVID-19 relief bill that (editorial comment coming) should not be done by budget resolution. It passed on a party line vote, 51-50, with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking the tie (thanks, Georgia!)

To be clear: I’m not against helping Americans who are genuinely hurting, but before we heap trillions more in debt onto future generations, we should ensure that any aid is carefully targeted and not just an excuse to shower money on Democrat constituencies.

Republicans did keep their word to force vote after vote, to make Democrats go on record as supporting or opposing various controversial issues. Those commenters here who claim there’s no difference between the parties and who are threatening to vote for Democrats “just to show” the Republicans should note that the votes were evenly split 50-50 along party lines on…

Whether to support a border security wall, opposing a federal carbon tax, banning oil and gas leasing on federal land, giving stimulus checks to prison inmates, and even supporting religious freedom (yes, all the Democrats voted for checks for criminals and against supporting religious freedom.) So now you know what you’ll be voting for. They did vote 100-0 against defunding police, but someone needs to pass that word along to Democrats on the local government level.

This is too long and complicated to recap here, so check out the Fox News account.

And those flirting with voting Democrat, please note this paragraph, too:

“A final Democratic amendment proposed by Schumer undid three GOP-proposed amendments that passed with bipartisan majorities on fracking, the Keystone XL Pipeline and opposing stimulus checks for illegal immigrants. Harris cast the tie-breaking vote on that too.”

    Gloria Irigoyen: You need to know Scripture a lot better if you are proposing to tell us God's will for delivering our nation. God made no promises "not to destroy man again" after Sodom and Gomorrah, only after the Deluge. Indeed, the New Testament refers to S&G as a warning, not as something never to recur.

    Kamala should be proud of herself--- the first black woman in the U.S. to blow several trillion dollars of taxpayers hard earned money. She will go down in history for that and being the first VP elect to bail criminals ( arrested for arson , assault, resisting arrest, attempted murder of police officers, etc) if for no other reason. We should be proud of her for all that. She ain't no Margaret Thatcher !

    I among money friends family etc have not and will not watch any of the impeachment trial. We are all waiting for an adult or two to come and guide these 9 year olds holding office above their pay grade to do the real jobs folks have hired them to do. Tired of the old sticks and stones mentality that exists in our society thanks to our radical minded citizens who think that words speak louder than actions. Truly no one is minding the store and the store is about to go bankrupt!

    It is incredibly unbelievable and frusting to see how Americans have forgotten who they are and the foundation of their greatest success and prosperity as a nation. We are one nation under God, or so we were.... The depravation of modern times, technology and the evil manipulation of those who hold control within the financial circles and wealth in the world have turned us into their toy marionettes to do as they please. At one point or another we are all guilty and responsible for these results, as we have allowed these powers to enter our lives. We realized it, and reacted too late. Only a forceful take over will stop this, and the consequences will bare a lot violence and destruction, and eliminating of those who hold the strings.
    Is that what God wants to do? Do we even have the courage?
    He promised man after Sodom and Gomorrah not to destroy man again, and here we are again even worst than then. Only God can fix this. Forgive us father, protect us, guide us and heal our nation. We need you more than ever.
