What a difference a day makes
The power of imaginary money strikes again.
Because she never wanted it to work
Trump: GOP proposal “semi-irrelevant.”
“It’s not $600 or bust… that’s not where we are. We are prepared to discuss this.”
“We can move very quickly with the Democrats on these issues.”
Mnuchin: All in on direct stimulus.
“Kids, jobs and health care.”
McConnell: “It won’t be $3 trillion.”
Why not $17 gazillion dollars, while we’re at it?
In the event of a Senate emergency, break glass
“I cannot see why the Democratic Leader talks right past Senator Scott as if he were not leading this discussion, as if he were barely here.”
Monty Hall time?
“Whatever is ultimately decided I don’t have a problem with.”
Jobless slide continues: 2.4 million new claims.
In a New York minute
“Messaging bills without bipartisan support are a disservice to the American people, especially during a time of crisis.”
McConnell: Pelosi’s bill a “seasonal catalog of left-wing oddities.”
Let them eat cake or donuts or something
Incompetence or high-stakes brinksmanship?
“We’re not interested in revenue replacement for state governments.”
“I think we will be able to pass this today.”
“Identity politics and the social pork barrel trump jobs and business solvency.”
Where’s the Brave Sir Robin Congress?
Bugging out in a crisis.
Grassley: SALT cap repeal a “non-starter.”
“This is the single biggest s*** show I have seen here. Pure f***ing chaos.”
Will Pelosi even call a vote?
“We have a bipartisan agreement on the largest rescue package in American history.”
NYT, for the moment: “Emergency Economic Rescue Plan in Limbo as Democrats Block Action.”
“All of the sudden the Democratic leader and the speaker of the House shows up, and we’re back to square one.”
Don’t hold your breath.
Schumer: “I should not have used the words I used yesterday. They did not come out the way I intended to.”
How do we reconcile this? Hmmm!
“Jeff Flake on steroids”?
But is Mitt Romney?
Boltin’ on Bolton?
“A cloud of unfairness” that dates much, much farther back.
Somehow I think he doesn’t mind
High drama? Not so much
Scott: Witness debate “has everything to do with removing at least four senators from office who are Republicans.”
“People up to no good feel they have free rein.”

“Winning has come through revolts. Winning has come through riots.”
