re: #165 Eclectic Cyborg

But do any of these bills stand a chance in the Senate??

That depends. As each bill (simply cut out from the Senate bill passed in the last election 100-0) comes up and McConnell refuses to put it on the floor, another Democratic talking point and advert is born.

FAA: The Republicans don’t want you to travel safely.
FDA: The Republicans don’t want you to have safe food and drugs.
FTC: The Republicans don’t want you to have safe consumer products.
Coast Guard: The Republicans don’t want you to have water safety, drug interdiction, and less crime.
&c

There are now four Republicans who say they are on-board with re-opening the government in the Senate. In theory, that’s enough to force votes.
