Kudos to Senator Roger Marshall for forcing the issue onto the Senate floor and to every Senate Republican along with 13 Democrats who voted to put an end to the absurd notion that COVID is still an emergency.
The 13 Democrats were:
Cortez Masto (D-NV)
*in cycle in 2024
When even Chuck Schumer says the COVID emergency is over, we’re finally making some progress. Of course, there is no indication Nancy Pelosi will allow a House vote, but this vote demonstrates enough bipartisan support to put a bill on the president’s desk next year when Republicans control the House.
Joe Biden says he would veto it, saying the bill would end the national emergency “abruptly and prematurely.”
He needs an “emergency” to fund things like student loan forgiveness.
