Several Democratic senators are saying they will vote against any amendments introduced during a Senate vote-a-rama session in order to keep the party's major climate, tax and health bill on track to pass.
The biggest climate action in U.S. history has been agreed to. All Senate Democrats have agreed to it. I don't want this bill to be derailed by supporting changes. I won't vote for any amendments that I don't like. The senator from Hawaii said that they should finish the job.
I concur with Brian. The senator said he would be voting no on all amendments. Stay united and make this historic bill happen.
A major piece of legislation for Democrats on climate, health and tax reform is expected to be taken up by the Senate on Saturday.
It came more than a week after Schumer and Manchin said they had reached a deal on a package.
After reaching a deal with Schumer on aspects of the package, Sinema said she would support it.
The budget reconciliation process requires a simple majority to pass the legislation. Democrats need all 50 of their members and a tiebreaking vote from Harris to pass it.
The bill will have to be voted on in a voting session before it can be put to a vote on the floor. The session could go on for a long time.
Lindsey Graham said that it would be like hell.
Even if they agree with the amendments, other Senate Democrats will vote against them in order to protect the package.
After a yearlong fight, we have a deal that has 50 votes and makes historic investments. This weekend, I will vote to protect that deal, which means voting no on any amendments I support.
I concur with Brian. I will not vote for any amendments that I do not agree with. Climate action and prescription drug costs have been made easier by this bill. It has 50 votes and we need to stick together to keep it that way.
