How pathetic is this:
Just 11 House Democrats voted with all Republicans yesterday to terminate the COVID national emergency that ended a year and a half ago.
How short is that list? It’s just 5 percent of House Democrats. All the rest fell right behind the Biden announcement of a May 11 end date.
Next up will be the Senate, where Kansas Senator Roger Marshall will force a vote yet again. It passed three times last year, but Democrats may be more hesitant to vote yes without the Nancy Pelosi backstop.
It is a privileged resolution that cannot be filibustered. Unless 10 of the 12 Senate Democrats who voted yes last time flip-flop, Biden will have to use his first-ever veto if he wants to keep his fake COVID emergency going until May.
To repeat: the “emergency” allows Biden to spend tens of billions of dollars on health and welfare programs without congressional approval. And these are the same people who call Trump a “danger to democracy.”
