3:20 am
70000000 volts. we sent them here as the american people to washington to pass legislation that would be in the best interests of citizens. not if they cannot get anything done beyond emergency packages such as coven, then we have a serious problem. the problem is, it's the democratic party that just doesn't seem to have the votes in congress to override congressional rules and overcome republican opposition to pass this legislation. even joe biden last week seemed pretty doubtful that this would be passed under his watch after he some se belatedly, but the full force of the presidency behind the push to get voting rights legislation passed. ironically, if bitin does fail once again to get a major piece of legislation, parcel he promised on the campaign trail with democratic vote. the democratic turned out of the upcoming midterm elections may be depressed anyway. ukraine's former president has appeared in court in
