I hate to disappoint the Scissorheads who crave the Stupid first thing in the morning, so here goes:
The Senate on Wednesday voted to start debate on legislation that would codify same-sex marriage protections, paving the way for it to pass by the end of the week.
Senators voted 62-37 to advance the measure, with 12 Republicans joining with every Democrat. Lawmakers are expected to vote once again tomorrow to invoke cloture, setting up a final vote by the end of the week.
Once the Senate votes on final passage of the bill, the House will need to vote on the Senate’s version before it goes to President Biden for his signature. All of this needs to happen before the new Congress is sworn in on January 3 and the legislative slate is wiped clean.
