Is my thinking wrong here about the Senate vote on The stimulus package?

I'm thinking that when the Dems. go for it on their own, SOME rethugs WILL join them!! Meaning we probably will NOT need the VP. to vote!

1. Yes. 50 Dem votes plus VP for reconciliation

 

is the only way a bill worth its salt is passing.

7. If that is the case that makes Manchin's vote critical

16. We will likely have to give him something so he can save face

 

Hopefully it's something inconsequential and does not violate our promise that won us the Senate to deliver survival checks to the American People.

2. I'd love the VP to vote...

that said, I'd really like a few GOPers to think about the country rather than going lockstep with the loser McConnell.

3. I was thinking the same thing. Do they want to explain to their constituents

Why they couldnít get more money in the face of the disaster we are at?

17. This is why evil McConnell refused...

 



... a Senate vote on a previous Democrat stand-alone stimulus bill.

Repugs did not want to be on record voting NO on stimulus.

18. Exactly. They were able to avoid voting on anything for two years. They like it that way

4. I have had the same thought.

Maybe Romney, and one or two others.
Then we do not need Manchin.

10. That is certainly Joe Biden's hope/belief.

He wants to give the Republicans the opportunity to be decent and reasonable and to do what 74% of Americans agree needs to be done.

But, if they donít, he will ram the bill through using reconciliation on a 51-50 vote. He has been very resolute about this.

12. I think Biden will give something to the 10 GOP senators he met with

 

Nothing he won't miss, but enough for them to say they influenced the bill.
