After three months of Democratic nonsense, Democratic hackery, Democratic filibustering, Democratic delay, Democratic posturing, and general Democratic disregard for the underlying issue of human trafficking… the Senate bill finally passes. The final vote? As of 4:30 PM:
The final vote was 99-0. Just in case you were wondering whether any of those Democrats actually had a principled reason for holding up a vote for all those months. …Nope! Fighting human trafficking is all very well, but when it comes to Democratic Senators the principle took a distinct second place to expanding access to abortion. It took them a ridiculous amount of time for them to realize that [mc_name name=’Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)’ chamber=’senate’ mcid=’R000146′ ] does not actually have super-powers, and that being the minority in the Senate really and truly does have consequences…
But it’s over now. Finally. Which means… well, it means that Loretta Lynch will probably get confirmed as Attorney General tomorrow. And by ‘probably’ I’m thinking of the actual, specific date: not whether she’ll ever be confirmed. She’s going to be confirmed. Be prepared for that to happen.
