Is the check late? They spend more than 10 hours in the Senate reading aid plan at the request of the Republicans.

This Thursday began debate in the Senate on the economic aid plan for the country, which is a priority for Biden and the Democratic caucus. However, some strategies are already beginning to be perceived by Republicans to delay the approval of the bill.

The $ 1.9 billion bill proposed by the Biden Administration is a lengthy document of 628 pages and Ron Johnson along with other Republican leaders requested a reading in its entirety, since they consider that they should know what the text contains and also intend to expose the massive expense of the plan.

“What I’m trying to do is make this process more deliberative and obviously shed more light on the abusive and obscene amount of money,” Johnson said, as reported by NBC.

So yesterday, the secretaries of the Senate spent 10 hours, 43 minutes and 9 seconds reading the entire stimulus plan to comply with the Republican request. The marathon journey started at 3:20 pm and ended at 2:04 am on Friday morning.

Generally, the effort to read every bill that passes the Senate is omitted, but any senator can request that it be done. So John Merlino and Mary Anne Clarkson, secretaries, had to take turns with other members of the office to get the reading done.

Although laborious, reading the document would only take them a few hours longer than expected in the Senate. However, for this Friday legislators are expected to go through a process called “vote-a-rama,” reported the NY Journal.

Through this process, legislators are expected to evaluate various amendments to the law. Republicans would also take advantage of it to expose the most controversial points not only to delay the process, but with the hope of achieving adjustments in the text.

This process is often late and senators have 20 hours for discussions, which could end up delaying the approval of the stimulus package that includes the long-awaited $ 1,400 citizen aid checks.

Democrats are not allowed

Despite Republican actions, Democrats remain committed to passing the legislation, even if that means working long hours and into the weekend.

“Direct controls. Improved unemployment insurance. Assistance for state and local governments. Funding for testing and vaccine. Aid to schools and small businesses. All of these are in the American Rescue Plan. We will pass on the bold COVID response that Americans need, ”Chuck Schumer wrote through his twitter account.

The bill is expected to pass this weekend with a simple majority of Democrats and a decisive vote from Vice President Kamala Harris.
