The United States Senate passed the Democrats’ massive, pork-stuffed COVID bill this weekend on a completely partisan vote.
Not a single Republican voted for this, and there’s a very good reason for that.
The GOP knows conservative Americans didn’t want this.
Senate Passes $1.9 Trillion Relief Package After Marathon Votes
President Joe Biden’s signature $1.9 trillion Covid-19 relief bill passed the Senate 50-49 on Saturday, following a more than 25-hour marathon of amendment votes that was completed only after a lengthy interruption while Democrats settled an intra-party dispute over unemployment aid.
The measure, the American Rescue Plan Act, now heads back to the House, with Democrats aiming to have it signed into law next week. Enactment would hand Biden his first legislative victory and set the stage for work this spring on a massive infrastructure and manufacturing recovery bill that he wants.
But because of changes made in the Senate to satisfy moderate Democrats, it’s not clear if more negotiations with progressives might be necessary to win final passage in the House…
The Democratic drive in the Senate stalled out for nearly 12 hours on Friday after West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin — a pivotal vote in the 50-50 Senate — balked at a deal to extend supplemental unemployment benefits into October.
Take a look at the sickening way the Washington Post covered this. It’s pure propaganda.

There was a time when government propaganda was a bit more subtle than this. https://t.co/MMiC5rmFpq

If only we had known that government spending a lot of money cures poverty … why didn't anyone ever tell us this before? https://t.co/Mhjka2whX1

Biden and the Democrats got their slush fund and that makes the media very happy.
