    Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday paid an emotional tribute to Senator Dianne Feinstein, who passed away at the age of 90, calling her a “giant of the Senate” in remarks on the Senate floor. “Senator Dianne Feinstein was one of the most amazing people who ever graced the Senate who ever graced the country,” said Schumer, adding, “Her integrity shone like a beacon across the Senate and across the country for all to see.” “Dianne didn't just put push down doors that were closed for women. She held them open for generations of a woman after her to...

    On Friday’s broadcast of CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street,” White House National Economic Council Director Lael Brainard asserted that we’re “on a sustainable fiscal path” due to the deal brokered between Congress and the White House on spending a few months ago and defended the spending on legislation passed by the Biden administration. Co-host Sara Eisen asked, “I’m sure politically there’s blame on both sides, but the toll that you talk about, the way I’m hearing it from investors is, it comes after this big standoff over the debt ceiling, the dysfunction and the inability for both sides to be...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) called late California Sen. Dianne Feinstein “[a] legend in the Senate” after news of her death broke Friday morning. “She’s a legend,” Schumer said in a statement to the Bay Area’s ABC7. “A legend in California as the first woman senator.” Feinstein, 90, served in the Senate for three decades prior to her death, first reported by Punchbowl. Nancy Pelosi, former House Speaker and fellow California Democrat, noted her status as a trailblazer for women in her own statement to ABC7.
  • Hoodie-loving John Fetterman will now HAVE to wear a shirt and tie in the Senate: Joe Manchin's resolution enforcing formal wear is unanimously adopted

    The great sartorial scandal over John Fetterman's signature hoodie-and-shorts has now come to a close after the Senate unanimously passed a resolution enacting a formal dress code. The resolution, brought forth by fellow Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, W. Va., passed without a formal vote by unanimous consent and clarified that the Senate floor would have a formal dress code. Hours earlier, Fetterman had already announced he would wear a suit and tie while speaking or presiding over the Senate floor. Fetterman, like others, could still wear his trademark garb and vote from the cloak room on the edge of the...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday held off from calling for Sen. Bob Menendez’s resignation after the New Jersey Democrat was charged by federal prosecutors with bribery and corruption. Schumer told reporters that he was “deeply disappointed” and “disturbed” when he read the indictment released late last week, which alleges that Menendez and his wife accepted bribes in order to enrich three New Jersey businessmen and benefit Egypt. “I’ve known Sen. Menendez a very long time and was truly, truly upset. But we all know that … for senators, there’s a much, much higher standard, and clearly when...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is the latest to join striking United Auto Workers (UAW) members on the picket line, speaking with members and holding up a sign in Tappan, New York, as Democrats attempt to halt former President Donald Trump’s courtship of the strikers. “We’re going to fight until we win,” Schumer said, explaining that his father, a “union guy,” told him, “When you’re doing the right thing, when you’re doing something important, look in your heart, make sure it’s the right thing.”

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has ditched the Senate dress code to accommodate man-child Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) who prefers to dress like a teenage slob rather than a grown man in the ‘world’s greatest deliberative body.’ The dress code of coats and ties for men and business attire for women will still apply to staff in the chamber. Even before his debilitating stroke last year, Fetterman preferred to wear a hoodie and gym shorts as Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor and while campaigning. After his treatment for depression earlier this year, Fetterman has continued dressing like a slob when at...

    The Federalist ^ | 9/12/23 | SHAWN FLEETWOOD
    New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer loves to lament how Alabama Sen. Tommy Tuberville’s protest of the Pentagon’s abortion policy supposedly “weaken[s] our national security.” So, why isn’t he using his power as Senate majority leader to do anything about it? Since March, Tuberville has used his position on the Senate Armed Services Committee to slow down military personnel moves requiring Senate confirmation to protest the Pentagon’s use of taxpayer money to cover service members’ travel expenses to get abortions. To be clear, Tuberville is not blocking votes but is forcing the committee to vote on each nomination individually rather...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in a letter to his Democratic colleagues Thursday that a potential government shutdown later this month would be the fault of “political games” by House Republicans. “When the Senate returns next week, our focus will be on funding the government and preventing House Republican extremists from forcing a government shutdown,” Schumer wrote in the letter, first reported by Politico. House Republicans have threatened a shutdown when the federal budget runs out Sept. 30 unless they get the budget cuts they want. Schumer vowed to pass bipartisan appropriations bills and urged the House to...

    In a “Dear Colleague” letter sent Friday morning, Schumer sought to drive a wedge between House and Senate Republicans — offering praise for both Senate Appropriations Chair Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and ranking Republican Susan Collins (R-Maine), a lawmaker with whom Schumer is often at loggerheads. “We cannot afford the brinkmanship or hostage-taking we saw from House Republicans earlier this year when they pushed our country to the brink of default to appease the most extreme members of their party,” Schumer wrote. The chamber passed all 12 appropriations bills out of committee on a bipartisan basis, he boasts. That drew an...

    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has delivered a recommendation to the Drug Enforcement Administration on marijuana policy, and Senate leaders hailed it Wednesday as a first step toward easing federal restrictions on the drug. HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra said Wednesday on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, that the agency has responded to President Joe Biden’s request “to provide a scheduling recommendation for marijuana to the DEA.” “We’ve worked to ensure that a scientific evaluation be completed and shared expeditiously,” he added. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement that HHS had recommended that...

    This week, evidence has emerged indicating that Joe Biden used at least three aliases in the influence-peddling schemes of the Biden family and their foreign "clients." In addition to the previously known "Big Guy" alias, it seems that "Robert Peters," "Robin Ware," and "JRB Ware" were also used. House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky) asserted that "the most likely reason for using a false name in a business transaction is to conceal the identity of a person engaging in a criminal act. This is why we are requesting the National Archives to include the false names used by President...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the American people did not care about Republican lawmakers’ investigations into President Joe Biden’s son Hunter. Schumer said, “Let’s compare it to the Republicans. We’re investing, there are investigating. All they seem to do is want to investigate this, that and the other thing. That doesn’t help the American people. The contrast of yesterday, a former president being indicted for trying to deny an election, and this president today talking about investing in America, that’s going to sink in. It’s our job to make sure it sinks...

    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday the House and Senate will pass a short-term government funding bill in September that will last "until early December" as a way to avoid a government shutdown. The deal – known as a "continuing resolution" or "CR" – would come amid a standoff in which House conservatives are pushing to cut federal spending below the levels President Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy agreed to in their debt ceiling deal. Schumer said he spoke with McCarthy at the end of July about government funding for fiscal 2024, given that current appropriations expire on...

    Energy The Biden Administration's claim that forcing consumers to shift from gas stoves to electric stoves would lower their monthly cost of cooking is technically true. A Department of Energy analysis showed that using electricity to cook instead of gas would save an estimated nine cents per month in operating costs. However, it would cost a consumer more than $300 to purchase the lowest priced GE stove on the market. This stove would have to last 300 years before the monthly nine cent savings would equal the cost to buy that stove. Department of Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm pointed out...

    On Thursday’s “Pod Save America” podcast, Senate Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that people in the middle class “doubt” whether they have a future and that people have negative views of the economy because “people look at the economy six months ago” and it’s “still in their heads today.” Schumer said the messaging strategy for Democrats on the economy is “to focus on what we’re doing. The two things people want the most, our data shows, are, get my costs down. They know that wages are going up. But when the costs go up and eat up the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Senate Democrats have recruited a professional puppeteer to assist 90-year-old Dianne Feinstein by moving her dead limbs and speaking for her whenever needed, according to sources. Feinstein is now expected to retain her senate seat forever. "Wow! She's so lifelike now!" exclaimed Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. "And she tells great jokes!" The person who operates Feinstein's lifeless husk made her say, "I'm not dead, I'm FINE-stein. HA HA!" He then pulled her strings in such a way as to make her perform a charming tap dance. "Hilarious!" Schumer reiterated. Republicans have been uncharacteristically supportive of Feinstein's...

"Oooo! I hear it's chocolate pudding!" exclaimed Senator Dianne Feinstein. "I haven't had chocolate smooshsmosh since Otto von Bismarck made his trek across the Delaware and another thing why are the lights in here so bright and where's Dorothy with my whacking stick…."
