Along with a host of other important additions among them voting protections. Every member could find something they did not like in the bill but it takes a village. Fortunately, all of her constituents will still receive the benefits of the Bill without her support…

There was also a second democratic profile in courage, a Present vote that will also get all of the benefits of the Omnibus. Thankfully some of the retiring Republicans decided to vote for it to ensure enough votes.
