Rand Paul's coronavirus diagnosis sends shockwaves through Senate

"Since Senator Romney sat next to Senator Paul for extended periods in recent days and consistent with [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] guidance, the attending physician has ordered him to immediately self-quarantine and not to vote on the Senate floor," Romney's office said in a statement on Sunday.

He was preceded by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), who became the first senator to announce he would self-quarantine because of Paul.

"Upon learning that my colleague Sen. Paul tested positive for COVID-19, I consulted the Attending Physician of the U.S. Congress Dr. Harding," Lee said in a statement. "Given the timing, proximity, and duration of my exposure to Sen. Paul, she directed me to self-quarantine for 14 days."

1. I wonder if Mitt thinks Moroni losing its horn in the quake means something?

I mean, just what brand of outlandish BS are these GOPers capable of buying in to?

2. "Not vote on the senate floor"; do they get to call in votes or do they have to be there?

4. This might be promising if a lot of rethugs are ordered to stay home

I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them would like to be able to avoid voting on somethings. They might be starting to feel the heat as the population suffers due to their fearless leader. Or if their consciences still aren’t active just keep them away from making things worse.

5. Rethugs will bring them in spacesuits if they have to, to win a vote.
