With Only 6 Members Participating, Senate Passed $483-Billion Spending Bill by ‘Unanimous Consent’
What a great system. Just like you learned about in civics class.
The U.S. Senate on Tuesday passed a $483-billion spending bill to further aid Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic—with only six members of the 100-member Senate participating.
The bill was approved by the “unanimous consent” of senators—most of whom were not there when that approval was given.
