Great to see how hard Republicans are fighting for our Military and Safety at the Border. The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked. If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51% (Nuclear Option) and vote on real, long term budget, no C.R.’s!

Not to put too fine a spin on this, but amply be-chinned Mitch lost 4 Wingnuts vote and didn’t have a simple majority. Math seems to be one of the many subjects that our like, really smart stable genius has not mastered.

Anyone see a single senator in that picture? I guess Elmira Gantry Huckabee-Sanders is willing to lie for free now that she is unpaid, non-essential staff. Also/too: what the hell is she wearing? It looks like a shower curtain I had in the ’80s.
The Russian Usurper, who still does not know how to negotiate, is now offering structural advice to the Senate. And since (I think) they have changed all the arcane rules to simple majority (except for budget), it remains the final frontier of what separates the very undemocratic (little-d) Senate from the House. Change that, and you will have essentially a small group of representatives with 6-year terms and all the dysfunction of the lower chamber with all of the pontification of the upper chamber, so the worst of both worlds.
Leave it to Comrade Stupid to find a way to make anything worse, and as much as I would love to see the Senate abolished (and gerrymandering stopped forever), I would rather leave it as is than have the improvement Preznint Nero suggests.
