Once again, Senate Democrats have voted down cloture on a motion to proceed on the Republican-authored CARES Act on Monday.
??PROCEDURAL MOTION FAILS AGAIN … SENATE DEMOCRATS again voted down a procedural motion, 49-46, as they say they are still negotiating with the TRUMP administration over the coronavirus bill— Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) March 23, 2020
But we all knew this thing was going to be torpedoed for the second time, thanks to some of Guy's intel.

Help isn’t coming because Nancy Pelosi wants to get *fuel standards* in your relief bill. https://t.co/43eNN4Ggce
Katie expanded on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's far-left wishes.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell got red in the face Sunday night after the Democrats succeeded in their partisan obstruction, as did several of his colleagues on Monday. Usually level heads like Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) called the Democratic obstruction "unbelievable," while Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) noted that the American people must think the Senate has "doubled down on stupid."
They got an earful from House Republicans like Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) too. He predicted today's charade "will go down as one of the most cynical, disgusting, malevolent actions in history."
To Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), it was "disgraceful."

There’s no hiding it now: Dems care more about using this crisis to try to implement their radical agenda than actually helping Americans who are losing their jobs, businesses, and retirement savings.
