Dems do another end run against GOP stalling

after GOP senator tom cotton tried to hold up the nomination of merrick garland to be AG chuck schmuer waitied for his opening.
After ron johnson wasted hours making teh clerk read teh stimulus bill outlod,taking hours the GOP left the the dems passed a mothion cutting debate time from 20 hours to 3 to speed things up.

After the stimulus passed the GOP left the floor again. So Schumer used what has now a 2/3 majority present on teh floor to invoke cloture on garland nomination as well as 2 others. cloture was invoked cutting off debate.

so much for GOP stalling.
