Working Again for the American People
Senate Republicans are making good on their promise to govern in a responsible, bipartisan way.
In just 27 days, the Senate has had votes on 25 amendments, more than all of last year.
Under Republican leadership, two Senate Democrats have finally had a chance to have their amendments considered.
Under the leadership of Republicans, the Senate is working in a bipartisan way to hear all ideas.
Last year, Senate Democrats lamented coming to work in a Senate that didn’t work. This month alone, two Democrats – Senators Schatz and Markey – experienced something they had never been able to do before: receive consideration by the Senate of one of their amendments. Senator Warren also got a roll call vote on one of her amendments for the first time.
