Snarking in the Senate

Bloomberg broke in with the Senate convening shortly before 8 p.m. Eastern time.

The House passed a bill. The Senate has convened. Reid is trying to get a vote to table what the House passed and then send back to the House the Senate version for it to be voted on tomorrow afternoon (1 p.m. in theory. [ETA: I think I misunderstood what I heard.] Based on what happened Thursday, Reid is justified in snarking about schedule). Reid wants and up-or-down on his version; McConnell isn't going to let that happen. Probably.

I think we don't know the precise content of the Senate version yet.

McConnell's "out of body" remarks were amazingly insulting.

ETA: House bill down, 59-41.
