This just in: Democrats are feckless pussies and completely out of touch with the progressive readymade base of the party.

This was 100% unpredictable up to and including an hour beforehand.

We’ll see how they react when McConnell inevitably ratfucks them I guess.

Oops I messed that up, anyway I was quoting the time from 11 this morning when I said “Democrats always cave and I’m glad they aren’t for once” or something to that effect

Byron York Verified account @ByronYork

Often noted that Senate requires 60 votes for passage. But Senate could also pass spending bill with simple majority. Indeed, McConnell asked that bill be taken up without 60-vote threshold. But Schumer objected, demanded 60-vote standard. So current impasse.

Your reading comprehension fail does not equal a lie from me.
ASKING to proceed without the 60 vote requirement is NOT the nuclear option you fucking dimwit.

I won't wait for you to apologize for displaying your own ignorance in your rush to call me a liar.

Yes the solid 20%. That'll win them many elections.

Of course you'd cackle at misinformation. You're happy to see someone sharing the load with you.
