Sorry for the short post, but C-Span just announced that the Senate will convene on noon on Saturday to bring the Inflation Reduction Act (the Schumer-Manchin Deal on taxes, climate and health care) to the Senate Floor as a Budget Reconciliation Bill. The vote on Saturday to begin debate will be followed by a Vote-A-Rama on Sunday on multiple amendments with a possible vote on a final Bill on Monday morning. All amendments and the final Bill only need a simple majority to pass (50+VP).
So Schumer either has the 50 Dem. Votes he needs (including Sinema) or he’s rolling the dice. I sure hope it’s the former and not the latter. Anyway it will be must watch C-Span TV this weekend!
Posting from my phone due to internet service being knocked out by storm, so that’s it for now. Hope to update with more details when my internet connection is restored.
