Senator Ron Johnson-Ron Johnson Plans to Delay $1.9T COVID Relief Bill Until All Details Are Read in Senate-SS-Featured

Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin revealed his plans on stalling the $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill backed by President Joe Biden. He aims to do so by asking for Senate clerks to read what he described as a 600- to 700-page “Democratic boondoggle.”

Johnson shared his plans on a local station in Wisconsin, News/Talk 1130, as per The National Review. Johnson reportedly wants all senators to learn all the inclusions of the bill. This may possibly delay the vote by around 10 hours.

On Wednesday, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) spoke to “The Story” about the package passed by the House of Representative. He described the response as “wildly out of proportion,” given the state of the U.S. at the moment.

McConnell noted that the latest COVID relief bill is as massive as the one approved in April 2020. He also pointed out that the current state of the country is not the same as that in 2020. McConnell then noted that, of that amount, only 9% is allocated to health care and less than 1% is vaccine-related.

The timeline regarding this relief bill is still not completely clear. The Senate may hold a vote on Thursday after they start their session at noon. However, that also entails debates that go on for a total of 20 hours.

Additionally, the legislators are currently waiting for a score coming from the Joint Committee on Taxation as well as the Congressional Budget Office.

After 20 hours of debates, the Senate will enter a phase where they will conduct votes one after the other, regarding amendments and changes to the bill. Whether the bill passes or not is decided upon by the final vote.

If both parties don’t reach an agreement soon, this process may take days.

Once this measure passes the Senate, it will move to the House. The two chambers of Congress likely have approved different versions of the COVID relief bill. Once the measure reaches the House, the lower chamber will have to consider changes and get votes so that their version and the Senate’s version will align. After this, they can send the plan to the President’s table in the middle of the month.

However, by that time, the unemployment benefits of many Americans would have already expired.

    Anything Democraps pass will be filled with payouts to their pals all over. With there only being a few ACTUAL Republicans in DC the Democraps and their Puppets will push through a bill filled with money for everyone but Americans as they always do.

  • S L Stolworthy says:

    As stated above, and also don’t let your guard down, and let them sneak it threw in the middle of the night! We need a Bill that reads (We The People) need to approve, any large Bills, to give the people a vote? As not to have it jam down our throats…
    If they truly are representing the people? Then we need a hand in it too!

  • Nancy P. says:

    KEEP IMMIGRANTS OUT OF THIS COUNTRY. MORE BORDER PATROL NEEDED BECAUSE OF BIDEN’S IDIOTIC NEW POLICY. US HAS FAILED MISERABLY TO STOP THIS VIRUS CRISIS. OUR PRIVATE PHYSICIANS SHOULD BE ADMINISTERING IT LIKE THE FLU VACCINES AND EVERYONE SHOULD RECEIVE THEM, NOT STUPID PHASES AND WHAT FEW SITES WE HAVE ARE NOT ACCEPTING APPOINTMENTS. ThE WHOLE SYSTEM WAS SET UP BY SOMEONE WITH NOT A BRAIN OR COMMON SENSE. THINK ABOUT IT!

  • S L Stolworthy says:

    Each and every State needs a Bill to protect them from this ever happening again! We don’t need dictators to our States! That is why we move to them because we like the rules.

  • Ellen says:

    I believe that you demo’s should think of us American’s FIRST instead of last, we voted you in and WE CAN VOTE YOU OUT.

  • Nancy P. says:

    And how can (1) man hold up the passing of the Covid Relief Bill from getting to the president’s ’ desk?? What kind of government do we have here. He has power over the House, Congress and the President himself?? Ludicrous. This crisis should overpower anything he says or wants. The President should be calling the shots. Dump him, big time.

  • Pam D says:

    Nancy P, is your last name Pelosi?

    The Republicans make over $200,000 a year. They care NOTHING about the average person. I wish ALL of them would take a long walk off a short pier…as****es

  • Charade says:

    PTL finally a Republican that stands up to these demonrats who want to change America into Venezuela. Biden is a cardboard cutout you see at sporting events. And we have to put up with this phony being in the White House. This is even more of a charade than Obama. Of course Obama is calling the shots.

  • David says:

    Like Nancy says, you just have to pass it to see whats in it. Nancy P & anonymous, your delusion is frightening! You talk about the 200,000 republicans make?! How about the millions that the democrats make off of the back of Americans, and then sent to Pakistan for their transgenders! Wake up, democrats have NEVER done anything for America, NEVER! They strive to corrupt and break this country and you support this? All they do is call republicans rwcist every four years and then do nothing for them. President Trump gave them half a billion dollars and helped free some prison, but he’s a racist! Hidens doing nothing for them and lockki g them up in shipping containers, makes it easy to enslave them sexually that way! I bet hunters drooling waiting for them!

  • T A Carolina says:

    Nancy P…. are you a complete DA? Did you even read the article or do you know how the process of passing bills works? If we, as a country, would stop putting warning labels on things and allow natural selection to take its course, the blood line of morons stop right in their tracks…. Critical thinking is a skill.

  • TRISH PETRUCCI says:

    REMEMBER THE 0BAMACARE BILL? 3,000 PAGES THAT 0BAMA INSISTED C0NGRESS HURRY AND PASS THAT BILL? REPS SAID WE NEED T0 READ IT, AND PEL0SI SAID, “WE NEED T0 PASS IT, THEN READ IT.” WHAT KIND 0F F00LISHNESS WASA THAT? AND WHAT KIND 0F F00LISHNESS IS THIS?

  • Phyllis Spillman says:

    I’m sure glad to see in most of these comments a reasonable response to this “pork barrel project with a little covid-19 added on”. Just very sad about those who cannot see or admit what’s in this, and they don’t even care. What Senator Johnson wants to do as far as having the full bill read so that all of us that will be paying for this ( actually our children and grandchildren will be paying for this far bey ok no the years we can even imagine). Why anyone would have a problem having the bill read aloud for clarity and exposure says a lot about them.

  • CARRIE says:

    Ok..on another line of thought.
    How is it o.k…to fence in the Whitehouse ( why).but it’s o.k. to take down/ stop security at the border.
    Come on…who’s afraid of the citizens of th U.S.
    What kind of president it this?

  • Ava Cummins says:

    Old Joe Administration are corrupted has been for years. They don’t give a dime about American tax payers citizens. The only thing they care about is Tax payers money. That’s where they need us for only. We are they slaves as they see it. Their keep using Black and illegals to get what they want to keep power and money for their families. Congress and other powerful leaders are truly allowing them to get a-way-with JUSTICE.

    Slow Joe Administration are team are from hell and the Devil is the leader! They have allowed 3700 Kids over the border with Cartels bring them over and 1800 so far has virus. They want the Borders open, so why not open up the COUNTYRY!!!!! Impeach them all America!!!!

  • Native0ne says:

    Some here have no clue how our government is run. Saying we the people need to vote on these bills. Remember how all these people have jobs here. We the people voted them into office. That means you granted them the power of a vote from the people. It is disturbing that the majority have no idea how the government is run. Storming the capital by a thousand idiots messed up we the peoples rights to visit our capital. I hope their security is as tight as area 51. Step inside the fence and read the warning. You just entered a kill box.because you have no fucking clue the measures taken to keep it safe and secure. The sign states you will be killed on site. The capital should incorporate those warnings. Have to keep the people who run the government safe.
