In retaliation, Republican senators aimed to make the amendment process politically painful for Democrats

Published

on




The Senate approved President Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package Saturday, over 24 hours after opening debate on the bill. A grueling amendment process, known as a “vote-a-rama,” was stalled for nearly 12 hours on Friday due to disagreements within the Democratic caucus over an unemployment insurance benefit.

The final vote was 50-49, with all Democrats voting in favor of the bill and all Republicans voting against it. The passage of the bill was met with cheers and applause from Democrats, celebrating the passage of one of Mr. Biden’s key priorities. Vice President Kamala Harris did not need to visit the Capitol to break any ties, as GOP Senator Dan Sullivan left due to a family emergency on Friday.

Democrats took a victory lap after the passage of the bill, with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer telling reporters after the vote that “it’s a great day for this country.” Senate Budget Committee Chair Bernie Sanders called the bill “the most significant piece of legislation to benefit working families in the modern history of this country.”

President Biden dubbed the plan “historic” during an address on Saturday.

“For over a year the American people were told they were on their own,” he said, and later added, “This nation has suffered too much for much too long, and everything in this package is designed to relieve the suffering and to meet the most urgent needs of the nation.”

The president noted that 85% of American households will now soon receive direct payments of $1,400 per person, and a “typical middle class family of four” will get $5,600. “That means the mortgage can get paid. That means maintaining the health insurance you have. It’s going to make a big difference in so many lives in this country,” he said.

The Republican Party is showing signs of softening its trademark fiscal conservative brand in favor of a new populist approach, a potentially seminal shift as the party becomes more reliant on blue-collar white voters after Donald Trump’s presidency.

The last time Republicans were thrown out of power, in 2009, they embraced an unabashed tax-cutting and spending-cutting vision to find their way out of the wilderness. Now, the party is taking a different path as ambitious figures seek to curry favor with voters by pushing a larger government safety-net that includes cash to families and a minimum wage hike.

The new approach comes at a time of deep economic hardship — rising income inequality and escalating costs of health care and college tuition — made worse by the coronavirus pandemic. The trend, if it continues, will test the longstanding alliance between the GOP and big business and has the potential to reshape the future of American policymaking.

“I hope there’s support for getting working people a fair shot. Most Americans — they don’t want to be taken care of. They would like a fair shot though — to be able to get a job, be able to raise their family,” Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said.

Hawley’s rhetoric echoes progressives who say the government has a larger role in providing equal economic opportunity. He has been a vocal supporter of direct cash payments to Americans, even teaming up with democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., recently on the issue.

“Republicans need to have a broader conversation about what we’re going to do to support working people, working families in the middle of the country, where I’m from, but all across the country,” Hawley said. “So I hope that that’s the direction that we’re headed.”

‘It’s time’
The party-line vote Saturday to approve a $1.9 trillion Covid relief bill shows there remain economic differences between the two parties. Yet 48 Republicans voted in the process to spend $650 billion on measures including direct cash, jobless aid and child care.

Perhaps no Republican embodies the change quite like Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah.

He ran for president in 2012 on a platform of slashing taxes, raising the Social Security retirement age and cutting Medicare spending. He picked as his running mate Paul Ryan, the vanguard of traditional fiscal conservatism.

Now, Romney is leading efforts in his party to expand the safety net with a substantial child allowance and a minimum wage hike to $10 per hour, one that’s tied to stricter immigration enforcement. And he was an early proponent of direct payments amid the pandemic.

“With regards to each of those plans, the effort is to make our safety net more effective,” Romney told NBC News, while emphasizing that his plans are paid for.

In some ways, Romney is Trump’s polar opposite and chief antagonist — the only Republican who voted twice to find him guilty on impeachment charges. But Trump’s pro-spending and anti-immigration attitudes created space for the policies Romney is pushing.

Case in point, his minimum wage proposal is co-sponsored by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., one of the chamber’s most conservative members and someone who is considered a likely presidential candidate.

“It’s time for the minimum wage to be raised. It hasn’t been raised in a long, long, long time,” Romney said. “But do so gradually and consistent with the rate of inflation — and marry that with immigration enforcement to make sure that we don’t have people coming in illegally, taking away jobs from those at the entry level.”

While Romney is hardly a favorite among conservative grassroots activists because of his extensive criticism of Trump, some were enthused by the proposals, particularly his childcare plan. That plan would provide households up to $4,200 annually per child while cutting some existing entitlement programs.

The idea of using federal power to promote the nuclear family is at the center of this change in GOP policymaking, and a number of other lawmakers like Hawley and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., are seeking to lead in this area.

“I think Romney’s proposals are interesting,” Don Thrasher, chairman of Kentucky’s Nelson County GOP, told NBC News. “I think [GOP policy] needs to be addressing the inequity of what is going to corporate America versus what is going to Main Street America. And I think part of what Romney’s saying does that.”

Full Manchin Interview: Covid relief ‘took a little longer than necessary, but we got it done’
Republican strategist Andy Surabian said some in the GOP are shifting away from its fiscal orthodoxy.

“There’s a lot more openness from the base to policy proposals that are more populist in nature and are less concerned with kind of orthodox, libertarian conservative economics in some ways,” he said. “But I also think it’s super easy to overstate the extent to which that’s true.”

He added though it’s wrong to assume conservative activists no longer care about spending and debt, or “that they’re all of a sudden for a bunch of liberal economics” like a national $15 minimum wage.

‘Deficit hawkishness’
Notably, Republicans are talking less about the national debt and are instead attacking the Democrats’ Covid bill as a “liberal wish list.” And the tea party activists who took politics by storm in 2009 with complaints about government spending are nowhere to be found. A recent Economist/YouGov poll showed the bill is supported by 66 percent of Americans, with just 25 percent opposed. It has support with nearly four-in-10 Republicans and 30 percent of Trump voters.

A Nebraska Republican, who asked to speak anonymously to provide a frank assessment of Republican messaging said that as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the unprecedented government relief, “a lot of the base” is more comfortable with accepting “a larger economic role for the government” — so long as “it actually serves to benefit the American citizen.”

“I think the days of a party exclusively dedicated to deficit hawkishness are waning,” this person said. “I think you’ll see a much larger body of freshmen in 2022 move toward the middle on that issue.”

Some Democrats say this shift is shows Republican counterparts are searching for an identity after four years of Trump and then his re-election defeat.

“The Republican Party’s a snow globe right now,” said Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis. “They don’t know if they’re QAnon, if they’re tea party, if they’re fiscal conservatives, if they’re a religious right party — they don’t know. And during that time, you’re gonna see lots of shit falling from the sky.”

But Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., said the decline of fiscal conservatism is good for the country.

“If that legacy of the Trump era is maintained inside the Republican Party, it means that there’ll be a lot more room for negotiation with Democrats, because they won’t be any longer wedded to root canal-like budget policy that is focused on inflicting more pain,” he said.

However, some Republicans say Trump’s vision on spending actually attracted more voters to the party — mainly disaffected Democrats.

Trump “brought a lot of people into the party that were traditional Democrats,” Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., a former Democrat who switched parties in 1994, said. “Just hope we keep bringing more in.”

Trump infused the party with a mix of economic populism and nativism that many Republicans initially resisted. Now, even after his defeat, it continues to influence the party.

“Probably one of Trump’s biggest changes was to have a more populist approach, particularly to helping people,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a former Trump critic turned fierce ally, said in an interview. “I think that’s good.”

The House will vote on the amended legislation on Tuesday, after the House passed a slightly different version of the bill last week. If it is approved by the House, it will then go to Mr. Biden’s desk for his signature. Schumer expressed confidence that the Senate version of the bill would pass in the House.

“They feel like we do, we have to get this done,” he said.

The economic relief legislation is broadly popular, with recent polling showing that a majority of Americans support it, particularly the provision that provides $1,400 in direct checks to earners making under $75,000. Senate Democrats reached a deal to limit the eligibility for who receives direct checks earlier this week. Other provisions in the bill include an additional $300 weekly jobless benefits through September 6, a child allowance of up to $3,600 per family, $350 billion in aid to state and local governments, and $14 billion for vaccine distribution.

A fourth woman has accused New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of inappropriate behavior, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Ana Liss is also the third former aide to allege that Cuomo acted inappropriately at work. Liss, who worked as a policy and operations aide from 2013 to 2015, told the Journal that Cuomo asked if she had a boyfriend and called her “sweetheart.” Liss also said the governor touched her on her lower back and one time kissed her hand.

Last week, two other former staffers accused Cuomo of unwanted sexual advances.

On Friday, Lindsey Boylan said that Cuomo made unwanted sexual advances toward her. She resigned in 2018 after the governor kissed her on the lips without her consent. The following day, Charlotte Bennett said that Cuomo asked her inappropriate questions and also made unwanted sexual advances toward her.

Following those allegations, Cuomo issued a statement on Sunday and said his behavior towards women had been “misinterpreted as unwanted flirtation.”

He said he teased people about their personal lives but never propositioned or inappropriately touched anyone.

On Monday, Anna Ruch told The New York Times that she met Cuomo at a wedding in September 2019. He allegedly placed a hand on her bare lower back and called her ‘aggressive’ when she removed it. Ruch said Cuomo then placed his hands on her cheeks and asked if he could kiss her.

Karen Hinton, who worked as a consultant for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development while Cuomo led the agency in the late 1990s, told The Washington Post that she had an inappropriate exchange with Cuomo in 2000.

Hinton worked at the agency for 4½ years and reportedly had “contentious” disputes with Cuomo, including a screaming match filled with profanities right before her departure.

She alleged that Cuomo called her to his hotel room after an event in California, when he pulled her towards his body and held her before she backed away and left.

Peter Ajemian, Cuomo’s director of communications, told that Hinton’s account to the Post was inaccurate.

“Karen Hinton is a known antagonist of the Governor’s who is attempting to take advantage of this moment to score cheap points with made up allegations from 21 years ago. All women have the right to come forward and tell their story — however, it’s also the responsibility of the press to consider self-motivation. This is reckless,” Ajemian said.

Several other aides also told the Post that Cuomo fostered an abusive workplace culture. “You didn’t know which Andrew you were going to get,” said one woman who worked at HUD during Cuomo’s tenure told the Post.

Young women who worked for Cuomo and remained anonymous for fear of retaliation told both the Post and Journal that Cuomo would ask about their dating lives. Three of the women told the Post that they didn’t see these as propositions but as part of the larger culture that degraded women in Cuomo’s office. The Journal reported the women also accused Cuomo of touching them and commenting on the way they looked.

Rich Azzopardi, a senior Cuomo aide, told the Post that he’d never heard that type of abusive language used.

“The people of this state elected the Governor to them four times during the last 14 years and they know he works day and night for them. There is no secret these are tough jobs, and the work is demanding, but we have a top tier team with many employees who have been here for years, and many others who have left and returned. The Governor is direct with employees if their work is sub-par because the people of New York deserve nothing short of excellence,” Azzopardi told Insider in a statement.

Mr. Biden thanked the American people for their “overwhelming bipartisan support” of the package, without which “this would not have happened,” he said.

The final vote came after an arduous “vote-a-rama,” in which the Senate debated, considered and voted on 39 amendments over a 25 hour period. The process was initially delayed by a deadlock involving Senator Joe Manchin, moderate from West Virginia who has become a critical player in the evenly divided Senate.

On Friday evening, Senate Democrats reached a deal accepted by Manchin, after he had an extended meeting with Schumer. The compromise amendment extended the additional unemployment insurance benefits through September 6, makes the first $10,200 of unemployment insurance benefits non-taxable for households with incomes under $150,000, and extends tax rules regarding excess business loss limitations to 2026.

The compromise amendment was approved by a vote of 50 to 49 shortly after 1 a.m. It was almost identical to an amendment proposed under a deal reached Friday morning by progressives and moderates, with the only change being the income limit for the non-taxable benefits.

Mr. Biden stressed during his address Saturday that the deal extended assistance for the 11 million Americans who lost jobs due to the pandemic — and whose benefits were “about to expire,” he said.

Manchin has assumed a powerful role in the caucus because he’s one of the deciding votes in an evenly divided Senate. Democrats have 50 seats, which means that there is no room for dissent in the ranks: losing the support of a single senator means losing the overall vote. Earlier on Friday, Manchin had appeared to lean towards supporting an amendment introduced by GOP Senator Rob Portman that would have cut the unemployment insurance benefit from $400 to $300 and extended it only through June.

Stimulus Package Faces Lengthy Final Challenge Of Senate Votes

The “vote-a-rama” initially began on Friday morning with a failed vote on an amendment proposed by Senator Bernie Sanders that would have raised the federal minimum wage. But the vote stayed open even after all senators had voted, preventing the next amendment from being considered and allowing Democrats to work behind the scenes to convince Manchin to support their unemployment insurance benefit amendment.

After nearly 12 hours, the vote on Sanders’ amendment closed shortly before 11 p.m., making it the longest vote in modern Senate history. The “vote-a-rama” then resumed shortly before midnight with a vote on Portman’s unemployment insurance benefit amendment, which passed by a vote of 50-49, with Manchin’s support. However, that amendment will be canceled out by the Democratic amendment, which was voted on a few hours later and which Manchin also supported. This compromise amendment will be included in the final bill.

Manchin acknowledged to reporters after the final vote on the bill on Saturday afternoon that negotiations “took longer than they should’ve,” but expressed contentment with the final bill.

“We got it done and we got a better deal,” Manchin said.

The Senate convened on Friday morning with two hours of debate, followed by a vote on Sanders’ amendment, which would have raised the untipped minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2025, and the tipped minimum wage to $14.75 over seven years. The Senate parliamentarian ruled last week that the Senate could not include a provision raising the minimum wage to $15 under budget reconciliation rules, so GOP Senator Lindsey Graham raised a point of order challenging the amendment.

Manchin, as well as Democratic Senators Jon Tester, Jeanne Shaheen, Kyrsten Sinema, Chris Coons, Tom Carper and Maggie Hassan, joined Republicans in voting against allowing the provision to be included. Senator Angus King, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, also voted against adding the minimum wage hike to the bill. Manchin and Sinema in particular had previously expressed their opposition to raising the minimum wage to $15.

Congress is using the budget reconciliation process to pass the bill, which limits time for debate and allows legislation to pass with a simple majority, a workaround that avoids the 60-vote threshold that most bills require to advance in the Senate. If every Democrat supports the final bill, it would pass without any Republican support.

But Republicans are critical of the size of the bill and frustrated that Democrats are using the reconciliation process, arguing that they are taking a partisan route rather than working across the aisle. Democrats reply that they don’t need to waste time negotiating with Republicans to reach the 60-vote threshold and pass a smaller package.

In retaliation, Republican senators aimed to make the amendment process politically painful for Democrats, with mixed results. One such vote could was on an amendment to prevent undocumented immigrants from receiving stimulus checks. During the “vote-a-rama” last month on the budget resolution to set up the reconciliation process, eight Democrats joined all Republicans in voting for the amendment, infuriating progressives. However, when the Senate voted on the amendment on Saturday morning, it failed without any Democratic support.

The Senate did approve two amendments by voice vote, one on veterans’ education and one on aiding homeless children. The latter amendment was proposed by GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski and Manchin, and will dedicate $800 billion in education funding specifically for homeless children. The final amendment considered during the “vote-a-rama” was a bipartisan amendment sponsored by GOP Senator Marco Rubio and Democratic Senator Mark Warner, extending protections for federal contractors through September 30.

The Senate version of the bill differs from the House bill in several ways, including the amendments that passed on Friday and Saturday. Some recently added measures, according to a Senate Democratic aide, include $510 million for FEMA and $750 million for states and communities impacted by job and revenue loss in the tourism, travel and outdoor recreation sectors. Another provision sets aside funding for education, including $1.25 billion for evidence-based summer enrichment, $1.25 billion for after school programs and $3 billion for education technology. It would also make COVID-19 student loan relief tax-free.

A vote on the motion to proceed to debate on the legislation succeeded in a party-line vote on Thursday afternoon, with Harris breaking the 50-50 tie. Although budget reconciliation rules allow for up to 20 hours of debate ahead of the “vote-a-rama,” Republicans and Democrats only used two, after GOP Senator Ron Johnson forced the Senate clerk to read the entire bill aloud on Thursday evening. The process took almost 11 hours, ending early Friday morning. The Senate agreed to convene later Friday morning for up to three hours of debate, but any time saved by limiting the debate time was quickly lost with the nearly 12-hour delay over the unemployment insurance amendment.

“The bottom line is this: This plan puts us on the path to beating this virus,” Mr. Biden said Saturday. “This plan gives those families that are struggling the most the help and the breathing room they need to get through this moment. This plan gives small businesses in this country a fighting chance to survive. And one more thing,” he added, “this plan is historic.”
