The Republican leadership in the House today held a sham vote to get a spending bill passed.
They did it because they couldn’t get enough votes from both Republicans and Democrats for the bill. So, “Republican leadership worked with their Democratic counterparts to orchestrate the ploy.”
It is stuff like this that makes me sick for our country: bi-partisan corruption.
