The Democrats' plan gets past one of two likely GOP filibusters without changing the rules.

If you’re asking yourself, “What are‘messages between the houses?’” you aren’t alone. Rules wonk that I am, I’d never heard of this process. But here’s the short version: Before a bill can become a law, the House and Senate both have to agree on the wording of that bill. Most of us are familiar with the two chambers putting together a conference committee to hammer out the differences in language — though these have been rare in recent years, as more and more obstruction has become the norm.

HayesBrown This is why our tax codes are so convoluted. Those are written by these people who put work arounds for friends, family and those who contributed to their election campaigns. Then they complain about people not paying their fair share. They are a self serving mediocre lot! HayesBrown Who doesn’t have the right to vote?

Schumer Vows To Press Ahead With Filibuster Reform: ‘We Will Never Give Up’“We are going to continue till we get full voting rights for all Americans,' the Senate Majority Leader said at an MLK Day event. It’s too bad our own elected officials have no idea how bills become laws After HyperCapSoc, there are No Taxes because Governments also have a Sizable Stake in the MN-IPs Continuously-Receiving the MNs Distributed-Dividends. This in addition to having a very-large SWF that is initially calculated based on a Countries % of Global Pop x $3 Quadrillion. More importantly, Non-Binding Irrefutable Consensuses will lead to HyperCapSoc, where we eliminate the redistribution of wealth.

, Schumer promised to employ a process called “messages between the houses” to get both bills onto the Senate floor. If you’re asking yourself, “What are ‘messages between the houses? ’” you aren’t alone. Rules wonk that I am, I’d never heard of this process.
