Remember what I said about the Democrats needing to slow down the Senate by refusing consent to adjourn?
They caved, because these folks are worthless bags of excrement:*
The Senate on Monday left town until Oct. 19 after President Trump and three GOP senators tested positive for the coronavirus.
The decision by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to adjourn the Senate, absent brief pro forma sessions, is the first time the GOP leader has decided to keep the chamber out of town due to the virus since they reconvened in early May after a weeks-long break.
Even though the Senate will be out of town until Oct. 19, the Senate Judiciary Committee is still expected to start a days-long hearing for Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination on Oct. 12.
Democrats also argued McConnell’s move to adjourn the Senate, even though they are sticking to their Supreme Court timeline, was hypocritical.
But they did not block him from adjourning on Monday.
Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), the only Democratic senator to speak on the floor on Monday, asked McConnell to extend the Senate break through Election Day.
Oh, they asked.
I’m sure that this will be followed by a very strongly worded letter.
F%$# that. The Senate Democrats are completely worthless.
