House Narrowly Passes Biden’s Social Safety Net and Climate Bill
(Editing problems – sorry about that.)
Maine’s Jared Golden the only Democrat to vote no on Biden Build Back Better Bill
(The vote was 213 No, 220 Yes, 1 Present. There is one vacancy, so that’s all 435 votes accounted for. The ‘Present’ vote was apparently from a GOP member.)
Apparently GOP Reps Liz Cheney & Adam Kinzinger of the House Select Jan 6 Insurrection Committee hope to redeem themselves, having not added to the majority to avoid adding further insult to their party.

By Matthew Mosk * [Honest intellect is practically an oxymoron in itself, but it does exist although it rarely commands more than a brief moment of attention by either policy making elites or the broader public. However, the no one could have imagined nor no one could have know alibis do not hold water, not for the 2008 financial crisis, not for the Covid-19 pandemic, and not even for the 9/11/2001 terrorists attacks.]
