The Rat Eff’ing Begins!

Hey Baby, Come Here Often?

I wasn’t aware of this, but if you read this CNN article all the way through, you find that the rat already has given its date a roofie:

The exact timeline has grown increasingly fluid, both because of the potential for absent Republican senators, but also for procedural reasons.

As it stands right now, it looks like the House will go first — this is important because moving it through the chamber actually helps Republicans limit Senate Democratic procedural hurdles or roadblocks when it travels across the Capitol.

But starting in the House risks the possibility of moving forward on something not entirely scrubbed for Senate rules (they’re in the process of doing this right now), and House Democrats also have tools to make the process painful or potentially problematic.

Bottom line: The House is likely to go first, with a vote on Tuesday. Senate would then follow, likely starting work on Tuesday and finishing up as soon as Tuesday night or early Wednesday. Again, this all remains subject to change.

As I understand it, by having the House vote for the Billions for Billionaires bill first, the Senate Democrats would not be able to use procedural tactics to refer the bill to the House, you know, asking for clarity on something. Though this is a delaying tactic only, it could be effective if they can get Doug Jones seated during the delay.

    Jones will NOT be seated – McConnell broke the Senate and he intends that it stays broken!
