Democrats Cancel Senate Covid Policy To Attempt To Pass “Inflation Reduction Act”

These are the same people who tell us to get our 9th booster and wear a mask everywhere (and wear them mostly for show themselves, while Biden tested positive a 3rd time despite being isolated), who threatened GOP members with fines for refusing to cooperate with the Dems COVID policies

‘Don’t Test, Don’t Tell’: Senate Democrats Cancel COVID Policy to Ram Through Reconciliation Bill

Senate Democrats have reportedly canceled their coronavirus testing policy over the weekend to ram through a reconciliation bill, dubbed the “Inflation Reduction Act.”

“Senate Democrats, some of whom have decried their G.O.P. colleagues’ lenient attitude toward masking, have adopted an unofficial ‘Don’t Test, Don’t Tell,’ protocol of late, particularly as they endeavor to pass the historic Inflation Reduction Act this weekend,” Puck reported.

The change in policy is a result of Democrats fearing their coronavirus policy may undermine their ability to pass the legislation.

What if someone has COVID? If Republicans were scumbags like Democrats, one of them would have caught it and brought it to the Senate floor earlier in the week

The Puck piece is behind a pretty good paywall, cannot see it with Pocket or 12 Foot Ladder, here’s the whole excerpt if you don’t want to click on Twitter

So, it could be a superspreader event. How ironic would it be if a bunch of Democrats came down with Wuhan Flu next week?

The bill, however, is not finalized. Under Senate reconciliation rules, the Senate parliamentarian still must resolve several issues with the partisan legislation, such as Medicare drug price negations, climate change, and health care provisions. Democrats are using reconciliation to circumvent the 60 vote filibuster proof filibuster.

The bill as it’s meant to be voted on is not online yet at You know most Democrats have not read it, they don’t know the implications or impacts. And it might not be ready at anytime today. If Republicans were smart, they would not come to work today. Article I, section 5 of the Constitution requires that a quorum (51 senators) be present for the Senate to conduct business. If zero Republicans show, that means just 50 Senators, and, no, VP Harris would not be considered 51.

And then there’s this

What’s in the Senate Democrats’ landmark ‘Inflation Reduction Act’?


Tax analysts argue that the legislation would help American families who make less than $400,000. Democrats say it would reduce inflation at least in part by lowering the deficit, a key priority for Manchin.

The bill would reduce federal budget deficits by $102 billion over 10 years, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

That’s all ABC News is able to say on the potential inflation reduction. I’ve read the piece 3 times. I cannot find anything else. Which is the way most Credentialed News pieces go: calling it the Inflation Reduction Act and unable to provide anything to show it reduces inflation. “Democrats say” is not the flex they think it is, and $102 billion over 10 years is nothing.

    Teach Do you regret getting ykur covid shot?

    Although older than Trump Bidens vaccinations might have been the reason he did not have to be given oxygen helped to the hospital and almost die like your beloved Trump. Covid deaths ste down by 90% thanks to the Healthcare push by Dems. 9 out of the 10 states with the highest per capita death rates are Red states. Out of the million deaths by covid how many might have been Trump supporters who did not mask or vaccinate?

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Johnnie’s so full of shit with his might have been scenarios.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

    • James Lewis says:

      Utter BS, Hairy. To take or not to take the vaccines is not a political question. I know many on both sides.

      And yes, it was that Republican Trump who pushed and pulled to get the vaccines done while many asshole Leftie Democrats claimed it couldn’t be done, would kill people, etc, etc, etc.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        James typed: To take or not to take the vaccines is not a political question. I know many on both sides.

        I too know some Repubs and Dems who have been vaccinated, but I also realize that my observations are not really evidence.

        Actual data show that Democrats are up to twice as likely to be vaccinated than Republicans. Political independents fall between the two.

        It could be that red states have poorer systems of public health than states with more Dems. It could be the knee-jerk negative response of wingers to gov’t policies. Or it could be the drumbeat of anti-vax sentiment and disinformation from the conservamedia.

        • James Lewis says:

          Dearest Elwood:

          Actual data? What and source, please.

          And we read the Lefties attacking the vaccine while Trump was trying to get it done.

          Or it could be the absolute terrible job Slo Joe’s admin did in introducing the program… The CDC was as confused as a drunk duck trying to fly south and Fauci was lying and lying.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Google “vaccination rates by political party”. Several articles.

            This one:

            Independents: 60 percent
            Republicans: 55 percent
            Republicans who support Trump more than party: 46 percent
            Republicans who support party more than Trump: 62 percent
            Democratic Sanders-Warren voters: 88 percent
            Democratic Biden voters: 87 percent
            Biden voters in 2020 general election: 91 percent
            Trump voters in 2020 general election: 50 percent
            White non-college grads: 60 percent
            White college grads: 80 percent

            Surely you knew this.

          • david7134 says:

            Your little numbers are meaningless.

        • James Lewis says:

          Dear Elwood:

          Since you won’t. here are some facts about the recoveries of the red vs blue states.

          “The Wall Street Journal, deploying data from the center-left Brookings Institution, last month reported that Blue states, those governed by Democrats, were still 1.3 million jobs short of where they were before the COVID-19 pandemic. Red states, those led by Republicans, had managed to add 350,000 jobs.”

    • Down on the Corner says:

      I doubt Biden even has covid. He is using this for sympathy. It garnered Trump a few points and China Joe needs to hide in the White House while the country is run by a bunch of Frat Boys he’s hired based on someone elses recomendation. Its why Missiles are being fired at Taiwan. It is why we are feeding 60 billion dollars to the Ukraine and inviting Finland and Sweeden into Nato.

      I personally stand with NANCY PELOSI and her right to visit Taiwan. FuK China!

      Trump contracted Covid before they even had the vaccine and the delta was pretty rough on people. But he survived with a regimen of drugs that is now typically prescribed to everyone EXCEPT FLORIDA where the Democrats hope all those NAZIS die from Covid because they are not afraid of the virus.

      How dare they not be afraid when the democrats have mandated fear of covid as national policy!

      Hell guys, I have had the virus three times. I have been vaccinated and boosted ONCE. In the long term, it might kill me. But I refuse to stop living. Having been vaccinated and boosted after contracting Delta is was a bad cold. No fun, but not the worst I’ve ever been sick.

      As for the other two bouts. Most likely Omicron as I tested positive for covid, never lost taste or smell and it was like a mild cold with a minor sore throat, slight headache, and a few aches and pains for about 5 days.

      Don’t fear the reaper. Fear AGW NAZI’s who will have our heads on a platter and hand it to CHINA and RUSSIA. Fear FAUCI who continues to experiment with dangerous pathogens that miraculously start making their way around the world. Don’t Fear the Reaper. Fear Dr. Mengele.

    • CarolAnn says:

      Your “per capita” stats are favoring the more populated states. Raw numbers are what count.

      Can you explain to us why over 500,000 people have fled blue states for red states since pedo joe was elected? BTW, most of your blue states are blue because of corrupt mostly minority urban areas. Most counties and towns in blue states are red. And it looks like you commies can’t even keep the blacks on your plantation any longer. They be fleein’.

      Plus, it never hurts to have a leftist political machine stuffing ballot boxes, miscounting ballots and fixing machines. Not that you dems would ever do that LOLOLOLOL.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        It should frighten GOPhers that Dem voters are invading Texas, Florida, Arizona etc. If either purple Texas or Florida turn blue it’s over for the GOP, nationally.

        It’s endemic in conworld to consider “urbanites”* less valuable citizens than “rural”** Americans.

        Please tell us you don’t actually feel/believe that pedo DonJon won the 2020 election.

        * Black men and women
        ** White men and women, aka real Americians, aka Patriots

        • James Lewis says:

          Dear Elwood:

          Uh the link is from a news article dated 8/2021.

          That’s like claiming a ball game is over in the 4th inning.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Uh, that’s like comparing a baseball game to public health.

            You can certainly look for other data if you wish.

            The fact is Repugs have been less likely to get vaccinated than normal people.

            Do you think GOPhers have “caught up”? But why would they? Vaccinations were pushed by the gubmint, and all the GOPhers hear from their elites is that vaccines are deadly.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach typed a lot about a nothingburger!

    It’s reactionary cunnies claiming the Covid vaccines are causing people to drop dead.

    • Down on the Corner says:

      Imagine if you will, Dowd a world in which Trump was reelected, and the vaccines that the democrats said they would refuse to take were brought to market with EUAs under a trump second term.

      I can imagine Dowd shouting about how evil the vaccines are and the ACTUAL 1000’s of pages of FOIA information released from PFIZER were published by 1000s of leftist newspapers telling us how evil BIG PHARMA was and showing exactly how many people died around the world from taking the vaccine.

      I pine for the days when the press was not the mouthpiece of the democratic party and actually reported the news no matter whom it pained. That’s a world I can imagine.

      • CarolAnn says:

        I’d settle for news outlets and media to just release the actual numbers about who died from Whuflu and those who died WITH Whuflu and stop covering for Pfizer, big pharma and the democrat nuparty.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        The vaccines were introduced with EUAs in Dec 2020, a month before tRump was booted out.

        Imagine what you wish. I have confidence in the FDA emergency process. By all means encourage the right-wing disinformation machine (blogs and media) to publish fake “data” that the tRump vaccines are killing people.

        But you can ignore the media and base your decisions on the core evidence! Would you be so kind as to point out where we can find the evidence showing that anti-Covid vaccines are killing people? Thanks!

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          FINALLY, you admit Trump was “booted out” and not voted out making the election a fraud and a coup. You admitting it was a coup brightens my day. You can’t hide those lyin’ eyes.

          FJB and all the perverts in is stolen admin.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            There was an attempted coup by tRump and his confederates. It failed. GOPhers from state to state are attempting to get tRumpazoids in positions to “fix” elections from here on. A tRumpazoid loses an election – just refuse to certify and award the office to whomever. It will be like a Russian election! Putin gets 98% of the vote!

            Kari Lake, running for AZ gov, screeched that her election was fraudulent and fixed and she had the evidence. But then she squeaked out an apparent narrow win. Should she reject her own election? LOL

            You guys are a maelstrom of hypocrisy, dishonesty and delusion.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Rimjob: There was an attempted coup by tRump and his confederates.

            Prove it, dipshit.
            You can’t.

            Bwaha! Lolgf

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Is that your new cover up word, reactionary? Because if you took the time to look you closed minded fool you’d see there is nothing reactionary about the truth. You always just wave away anything you don’t want to hear.

      LGB the pedo. Or is that reactionary too?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        You are what you are, you close-minded tRumpazoid fool.

        Definition of reactionary
        : relating to, marked by, or favoring reaction
        especially : ultraconservative in politics

        archconservative, die-hard, hidebound, paleoconservative, standpat, traditionalistic, ultraconservative, unprogressive

        I stand corrected. Reactionary doesn’t begin to describe the danger to America coming from the tRumpazoid movement.

        FDT the pedo, who raped a 13 yr old girl while Epstein watched

        • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

          You keep on believin’ what you want. Like the CDC.

          FDT the pedo, who raped a 13 yr old girl while Epstein watched.

          Who is FDT? Where did you get this bit of info? The FBI? Steve Colbert? The guys who claimed an avowed germaphobe was peed on by a whore?

          Your sources are as suspect as your mind is closed you partisan hack.

          Yes, yes, yes, I’m a reactionary. An American. Proud of this country, our heritage and our former greatness until communists like you wormed their way into our institutions. Yes, I’m a reactionary. But I’m an honest believer in Justice. Not just for me but for you too. Yes, I’m a reactionary. I really do believe in tradition, honesty, law, justice, equality and that men can’t have babies, abortion or baby murder shouldn’t be used as birth control. So you are correct Dowd. I’m a reactionary and you’re a commie fool!

          It’s hard to know when to listen to you and your leftist comrades since you lie so often.

          FJB the ACTUAL pedo named so by HIS OWN FAMILY!!!!!

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            FuK Donald tRump was named in a lawsuit accused of raping a 13 year old girl.

            As if Donald Trump didn’t have enough legal problems and bad juju, now he has another headache to deal with: a lawsuit filed yesterday in federal court in New York accusing him (along with billionaire Jeffrey Epstein) of raping a 13 year old girl in 1994 at a party at Epstein’s place. The allegations are quite lurid, and reek of similar underage-sex-slavery charges made against Epstein. The lawsuit itself is not that likely to go very far; it appears to be a rehash of a suit previously dismissed in California. The statute of limitations has long since run out, requiring the “Jane Doe” plaintiff to offer creative arguments for why she should be able to bring this up now.

            Do you have knowledge of any similar legal proceedings involving President Biden?

    • L'Roy White says:

      I hate to point this out but the Covid vaccines are and have been killing people all along. You do realize that beside the unfortunate side effects that can be deadly some people have been allergic to the shot?

      On a personal note, my next door neighbor of 53 years old received his 2nd booster on 8/1 and was dead of heart blockage on 8/3. The reason offered by the hospital was blockage caused by a reaction to the vaccine. Yes, even though he had 3 previous shots this one killed him. He will be laid out Monday. His wife is a wreak and she’s at my house right now with my wife cooking to keep her mind off everything. The good news is they own their house free and clear. The bad news is she is afraid as hell about being able to live without his income. My wife Mary and I plan to help her out and we are currently working with our church to get assistance. She’ll be okay. Shes just scared right now.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        I’m so sorry about your neighbors.

        Yes, people have adverse reactions to immunizations, sometimes serious, occasionally fatal.

        Hundreds of millions of Covid immunizations have been administered in the US. With so many shots given it’s always possible that someone will die of unrelated causes, heart attack, stroke, accident etc. That’s not to suggest your neighbor’s death is not related to the vaccination, just that it is hard to prove.

        The US has a compensation program for those seriously injured by countermeasures (e.g., immunizations). You and your wife sound like great neighbors and your neighbor is lucky to have you.

        It will require a investigation to determine the cause of death.
