Pence to move forward with Mideast trip, as shutdown looms


ㅤô¿ô …Webster definition of loom: “to appear in an impressively great or exaggerated form.”
ㅤI like it when reporters admit their story is an exaggeration. The honesty is refreshing.

Here’s How Mike Pence Could Pass Tax Reform Without A Single Concession To Democrats

ㅤ”Congress adopted the ‘Byrd Rule’ in 1985, which bars any ‘extraneous measures’ that do not directly change revenues or expenditures from getting included in a reconciliation bill. Typically, the Senate parliamentarian makes a judgment on each provision of a bill to see if it has a direct impact on the federal budget.
ㅤCustomarily, before leadership moves forward with a bill under reconciliation rules, the Senate’s parliamentarian analyzes any objections that senators raise to provisions in the bill they feel do not meet reconciliation requirements. All provisions have to be germane to the bill and have a direct impact on the budget. The Senate parliamentarian typically makes a ruling on whether or not each provision meets those requirements and advises the presiding officer (Pence or another senator in his absence) on which provisions should stay.
ㅤPence has the ability to work around the parliamentarian. It is the President of the Senate, not the parliamentarian, who makes the ruling on what is permissible under reconciliation and what is not, a historian at the U.S. Senate Historical Office told The Daily Caller News Foundation. The parliamentarian has a purely advisory role.”

GAO to investigate Trump’s voter fraud commission

ㅤ”GAO said it would investigate the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity in response to a letter last week from Sens. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.). In a response letter to Bennet, the agency accepted the request on Wednesday ‘as work that is within the scope of its authority.'”

ㅤô¿ô …The corrupt scumbags are retaliating. The investigation is sure to be corrupt.
