Wild Senate week coming: Supreme Court fight, Twitter subpoena, and vote on virus aid

Senate lawmakers will begin consideration of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett after they revote a narrow coronavirus aid package and send a subpoena to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell signaled last week the Senate will begin consideration of Barrett’s nomination on Oct. 23, one day after her expected approval from the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Barrett’s confirmation hearing this week appeared to reinforce the already significant enthusiasm for her nomination from Senate Republicans, who are expected to vote nearly unanimously to confirm her by the end of October.

The Senate is expected to spend several days debating her nomination and taking procedural votes before a final vote sometime next week.

Two Republicans, Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, are expected to vote against bringing up the Barrett nomination. It is extremely rare for a lawmaker to vote against his or her party’s high-court nominee.

Both lawmakers said they object to the confirmation taking place so close to the Nov. 3 election.

But the GOP will be able to confirm Barrett easily with the Senate’s remaining 51 Republicans.

“We have the votes,” McConnell said this week at a Louisville press conference.

Before considering Barrett, lawmakers plan to vote again on a $500 billion coronavirus aid package that last month won nearly unanimous GOP support but was ultimately filibustered by all Democrats and one Republican.

McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said he won’t bring up a $1.8 trillion package Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has offered Democrats on behalf of President Trump, who has urged Congress to “go big” on a new round of spending, “or go home.”

THE DEMOCRATS HAVE NEARLY PROVEN, AND THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO, that for the last four years they much negated to power of a Republican President, proving that the only President that has the power to govern is a democrat.  They even openly brag about it, as does Biden. 22222frying pan

You may not like some of the things President Trump does, but keep in mind the democrats intend and will do far worse.  That's REALITY.

Ronald Reagan wan't perfect either, but he pulled us back from the brink.
