Democrats Plan Saturday Vote On Build Back Better, Er, Inflation Reduction Act

If the news media had a shred of integrity, they’d ask every single Senator who votes yes if they’d read it in full

Democrats Plan Saturday Vote On Inflation Reduction Act

Senate Democrats plan to hold a procedural vote Saturday on their major domestic policy bill known as the Inflation Reduction Act, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced Thursday.

If all 50 Senate Democrats vote to advance the measure, the soonest the bill could get a final vote is early next week. (snip)

But Democrats have yet to secure the support of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), who is reportedly pushing to make changes, including eliminating a provision that would tighten a tax loophole associated with hedge fund managers and private equity executives.

Sinema declined to speak to reporters Thursday. She was spotted deep in conversation on the Senate floor with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who largely wrote the bill in secret negotiations with Schumer.

And it is still rather secret. This is what the Democrats are saying is the text of the bill that will replace the bill that replaced the bill, which is formally known as H.R. 5376, the Build Back Better bill. As of the time of writing this, the alternate text is not available at the official Congressional legislative website. So, hasn’t been scored, hasn’t been available for citizens to officially read, nor for Senators to read.

Remember this?

Well, Democrats are Very Upset over Lauren Boebert saying the same thing.

    No, we have to pass it before looking at it – like any other stool sample.

    If the whiny Republicuns don’t like it they can vote “no”.

    528,000 new jobs in July! 3.5% unemployment! The economy continues to be overheated.

      Proving the pedo is at it’s best when in quarantine, his basement or with his 22nd bout of Wuflu. Hats off to American business for making a good stab at a very bad situation and adding jobs regardless of the nasty pig in office.

      How many are government jobs? Just 80,000 new IRS agents?

    Senatrix Sinema has signed on to the bill, so, unless something happens which keeps one of the Democrats from voting, it’s going to pass. Exactly what is going to pass, no one knows.

    Mitch McConnell might vote for the bill as well, not because he supports it, but as a procedural move to allow him to move to reconsider it at a later date.

    We will be told just what wonderful things this legislation will do, and then, two years from now, our esteemed host will be publishing articles noting how none of the promises made for it — other than hiring more government bureaucrats, of course! — were met.
