United States Senator from Hawaii. Dad.
@Tzipshmil Yes and the house is passing their bill next week, and we are writing our bill over the next couple of weeks, with a hard deadline of mid march. We are on track.
@Chronoexpert39 It takes a certain amount of time for professional staff to draft a 1.9 trillion dollar spending bill responsibly, and with minimal errors. But yes we feel the sense of urgency and would like to accelerate as much as possible.
One good thing about Joe Biden is he doesn’t owe anyone 421 million dollars.
The Capitol Police leadership turned down backup. My blood is boiling.
McConnell is threatening to filibuster the Organizing Resolution which allows Democrats to assume the committee Chair positions. It’s an absolutely unprecedented, wacky, counterproductive request. We won the Senate. We get the gavels.
If someone who tried to overthrow the government invoked my name on the Senate Floor as he rifled through my papers, saying I was “cool with it,” I would put out a statement.
