Ten establishment senators on Thursday helped Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) Title 42 amendment fail, enabling the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill advance in the Senate, while providing political cover for 2024 endangered Democrat senators.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) worked with Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) and Jon Tester (D-MT) Thursday morning to circumvent Lee’s amendment by crafting a side-by-side amendment to provide political cover for ten senators to ignore Lee’s Title 42 amendment, which was thawing a wrench into the passage of the omnibus bill.
Lee’s Title 42 amendment tied funds for the Department of Homeland Security to the Biden administration maintaining Title 42 in place. The Biden administration is currently in a legal fight to end Title 42, which makes it easier for law enforcement to send illegal aliens back to their native countries. The Trump administration originally implemented the measure during the pandemic.

Thawing? Thanks, Otto Korrekt!
Piss on all of ‘em.
Death throes of Great American Experiment.
The word “establishment” is redundant.
So Tillis was allowed to be the fall guy for the Loser Party as he walks out the door with a handful of cash for his buddies. They are all disgusting. I hope he and McConnell had their clot shots and are quadruple boosted.
One Senator could demand the bill be read out loud. In its entirety. That would gum things up a bit.
The US of A. Well, it was a nice experiment that lasted 246 years, but now it looks like it has run its course.
NOT WITH A BANG
but a whimper
We are powerless. They don’t care what we think, they don’t really like us, and they do whatever serves their self interest.
I’m so angry, and so depressed. I can’t even say “I told you so” because the morons who support Biden think things are just fine.
Doesn’t Shelby have something like $500,000,000 in pork coming out of this and he is retiring.
Learn Spanish. The new official language. At least we are getting a majority Christian invasion. For now.
Remember these names. I watched Rubio last week and he absolutely nailed the truth of the border invasion. Which makes this worse. He sees the truth, knows the truth then stabs in the back anyways. Same for all of these treasonous bastards.
Almost 700 million
He’s always been owned by the open border Bush League who put him in office. Ya, I was fooled a bit by him recently because he didn’t vote for McConnell for speaker, IIRC, but I guess leopards don’t change their spots. Lessons learned, battle scars earned.
They’re robbing us and they laugh in our faces because they believe they are untouchable.
