Chuck Schumer Tag

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has never met a tax increase he didn't like, and now he is saying that tax increases are the solution to rising inflation. So the answer to the pain American consumers feel at the gas pump and the grocery store is... more pain.

Democrats have figured out a way to sneak their "voting reform" bill into the House and then on to the Senate. It involves hollowing out a bill that has to do with NASA, and replacing the text with the text of their voting bill. It's not likely to change anything, but will force a debate on the topic which Democrats are probably hoping will pressure holdouts like Sens. Sinema (D-AZ) and Manchin (D-WV).

The Democrats and Republicans split the Senate 50-50, but Democrats have a slight majority since Vice President Kamala Harris holds the tie-breaking vote. But what about the filibuster? That is one topic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell must decide in their power-sharing agreement discussions.
