  1. Then why did we need the Kansas Package? Doesn’t FEMA cover that? We were glad to come to the aid of Kansans in their time of need. But here we are petty politics
  2. GOP Stand in the Way of Bipartisanship “I find it abhorrent that the majority of the Senate Republicans have sold their souls to the party line instead of doing what’s right together. In times of emergency we have set aside petty politics in order to make sure the needs of the country are met. Even with the Kansas tornado, we were able to work together. The President did similar things and we funded the relief as well. So yes i find it hypocritical to say it was right then but wrong now. The majority of GOP senators have made it clear to us and to the American people that they would rather have politics than bipartisan progress. They would rather do the Right thing than the right thing. The people of Mississippi, and the rest of the country should pay attention. When the funds run out, it was the GOP who stood in the way
  3. I just wanted to use leftover relief money, but I’m not married to it. The important thing is that Congress does its part. Glad to see you work across the aisle sir!
  4. Ooc: @SWMissourian can we vote on this
  5. For some that’s the idea, though i don’t agree
  6. OOC: I’m not going to debate this bill with you until it’s on the floor. If you want to debate it, vote.
  7. Mr. President, With the emergency that Nimpah virus presents to the people of Mississippi and to our country as a whole, I move that we suspend the Rules and immediately begin debating this bill. I yield
  8. I’m calling on Senators across the chamber to bring the Nimpah Response Act to the floor. We’ve acted quickly and together on tornado relief, now we need to do the same to combat a terrible disease. Let’s get this done!
  9. Mr. Ward and Mr. Crafts for themselves and others to appropriate funds to combat the spread of Nimpah virus Section 1 Title a) this bill May be known as the Nimpah Response Act Section 2 Appropriation a) 1.1 billion is appropriated to the CDC for the following purposes 1.) prevent the spread of Nimpah virus 2.) research and produce a vaccine for the curing or prevention of Nimpah virus b) any left over appropriations from the Tornado Relief Act should be used here first.
  10. Ward Invites Postal Workers for Sitdown Sen. Calvin Ward of New York is inviting postal workers to a meeting to discuss their frustrations and desires. “Labor unions continue to be a huge benefit to the working class family. With my time advocating for them, I have a strong desire to make sure workers are taken care of. I invite the Postal union leaders to come and sit down with me. While I can’t speak for the Vang’s Administration, it is imperative that we do what we can to avoid a strike. While an important tool, a strike would be felt nation wide, and our post workers need to know that they have an ear in Washington. I look forward to sitting down with them to find an agreeable solution.”
  11. Mr. President, I second the motion and yield
  12. Mr. President, The gentleman from Texas ought to be ashamed. Forcing private entities to comply with speech that they don’t want to associate with is absolute government overreach. He says they can’t build the platform to have a site for conservatives who need a space safe for all unfettered speech to be allowed. I’m not going to stand here and insult their intelligence, I think they can do it. But on this bill, he’ll get no cloture from me. I yield
  13. I sponsored a bill that would but tariff power into Congress’ hands. No President, regardless of party, should make unfettered tariff decisions that impact all Americans. Im urging the Senate to take our oversight power back and pass this simple legislation
  14. If the GOP want to stimulate the economy then the Administration should end the tariffs that bankrupted farmers and workers alike.
  15. “The American people are ready for a hand up.“ Dont forget, this is what was said about four years ago, when we ran the deficit up. Lets not call this Raeganomics. It’s cut and run economics. Cut taxes -> run up the deficit. Then the justification is to cut education, safety net programs, health, environmental regulation and protection because “spending is out of control”
  16. So Liberty, a private school know for its conservative ties, should be allowed to receive federal funding through loans yet limit their speakers. No liberals allowe at Liberty?
  17. While not a SCHOOL shooting, Dylan Roof passed a check because the back ground check failed https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2015/07/11/us/background-check-flaw-let-dylann-roof-buy-gun-fbi-says.amp.html
  18. I think school organizations and schools should be able to invite anyone. I also think private schools should be held to the same standards.
  19. Democrats Oppose Trade Centralization From Calvin Ward, Chair of the DNC ”We have seen from the last administration the crippling effects of unchecked trade policy. The Trump Administration‘s use of tariffs to try to persuade better deals only backfired and cost American farmers and businessmen billions of dollars. Giving any President, regardless of party, a blank check to agree to whatever trade deals their heart desires is on its face shameful. However, the Fast Track bill goes further and would only give the current administration this power. Trade impacts all Americans and is too fragile of an issue for Congress just approve for one man. The position of the Democratic Party is that trade power, including tariffs, should be restored to the people’s representatives, never to just the executive and never for such a limited time that only one administration would wield such power. Therefore I am urging all party members to oppose this bill and urging Congress to pass our legislation giving tariff power to Congress.
  20. We’re more than happy to have this bill, why won’t the GOP have ours? #PartisanPolitics
  21. Rep. Smith “most of these violent crimes are because of mental illness” Great. Let’s pass a law where we can have a judge take the guns away from a mentally ill person who’s a danger to himself or others GOP
