12. The SENATE has a deal. Biden went there just now to be there to talk to the Dems. and to vote if

necessary. And Chuck Todd just said to keep an eye on the vote-if it gets "only 60 or 61 votes," it may not pass in the House, but if it gets 70-80 votes, it probably WILL pass in the House.

they're both "on board."
