The Democrats are at it again! With the far leftist protester arm, Move On Dot Org, they organized about a hundred protesters at the Hart Senate Building. They showed their displeasure that Jones won’t be voting on the Tax Reform Bill.
In the stunning loss of the Republican Senate seat to replace Jeff Sessions in Alabama, Jones (D-AL) will NOT hit the senate floor until January, AFTER the tax reform bill is scheduled to go through. Luther Strange (R-AL) will be voting on the Tax Reform Bill and the pink hat crowd are MAD! See Video Below.
Democrats call for Tax Reform Bill to be delayed until Jones is sworn in.
Ben Wikler the Director of Move On, posted a tweet today. His tweet echoed the chants. “No Jones? No Vote.” See below to check out if they won this or not!
“No Jones? No vote!”

Their perspective is that Republicans are mean. From a left site this is what they are saying! “Democrats have called on them to delay their vote until Jones is seated. It certainly seems like the right thing to do…, but of course Republicans have demonstrated zero interest in doing the right thing and are rushing full speed ahead.” Never mind, that Obamacare was rammed down our throats. Oh how quickly they forget! Nothing like a little KARMA for Obamacare!
Why were they protesting? Because the Democrats called for the vote to be delayed. In this tweet below by Sahil Kapur, national political reporter for Bloomberg, tweeted about the democrats move to delay the bill.
“DRAMA–Democrats kick off House-Senate conference by moving to delay tax action until @GDouglasJones is sworn in, like they did on ACA in 2010 with Scott Brown. Kevin Brady rejects it. Lloyd Doggett accuses him of playing by “Putin rules.”

And the Democrats LOST. The Senate will NOT DELAY the vote on the Tax Reform Bill
Per the Washington Examiner, McConnell was called upon to delay the vote and although he would not comment. McConnell’s spokesperson said he would refer “to McConnell’s earlier pledge to hold the vote next week.”
“Senate Republicans will vote on the tax reform bill next week and will not delay consideration until Senator-elect Doug Jones is seated in the coming weeks. Republicans will stick to their plan to clear tax reform bill before adjourning at the end of next week, according to a Capitol Hill source with knowledge of the plan.”
So their protest to try and circumvent the plan and change the voting date, did not hold for the democrats. And this is a HUGE win for America and the Republicans. If the tax reform bill passes, we can expect our economy to continue to flourish under “trump-o-nomics.”
