14. He's trying to NEGOTIATE THE CHANGES? The changes are gone.

Of course McConnell told him they would continue to negotiate.

So Harry doesn't have the vote today, the only day it can be done with a simple majority because McConnell says they will work something out later.

Now McConnell can now forget the issue because he's got the filibuster and can kill everything proposed, including filibuster changes, without any Republican taking responsibility.

Harry seemed to accept another handshake and once again that handshake turned into a flipped finger as it always does.
