Senate Democrats avoid COVID-19 testing ahead of key vote

Senate Democrats reportedly have an unspoken agreement to avoid testing for COVID-19 because their hopes of passing the Inflation Reduction Act depend on all 50 members being present in the chamber in the days ahead.

Senators have adopted the attitude that the COVID-19 testing protocols Democrats previously touted as necessary should not stand in the way of a major and much-needed legislative win, according to Puck News.

When asked by the Washington Examiner about the report, a spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) pointed to comments he made last week.

Don't test, don't tell.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.
