House to pass sweeping police reform legislation
By Cristina Marcos and Mike Lillis - 06/25/20 06:00 AM EDT

House Democrats are poised to pass historic police reforms on Thursday, setting the stage for a showdown with Republicans in the Senate where efforts to strike a bipartisan deal are dwindling.

A day after the Senate failed to advance a GOP-authored police reform bill, House Democrats will use passage of their legislation to pressure Republicans on the tougher changes they’re seeking to prevent excessive use of force by police nationwide.

George Floyd’s death on May 25 sparked nationwide protests over police brutality and racial injustice that have put immense pressure on Congress to act. But with both parties digging in on their respective proposals a month after Floyd’s death, odds are decreasing that lawmakers will come to an agreement that can secure President Trump’s signature in an election year.

Will McConnell throw this into the trash when it reaches his end of the hall?

The rats ARE absolute trash. It’s a shame their voters are so ignorant as to not understand what it is they are putting in office.
