The Biden administration has been running like there’s no consequences to their actions. But everyone has had enough of their antics.
That’s why Joe Biden was just given a direct order from the U.S. Senate that completely blindsided him.
With Sens. Ben Sasse (R-NE) and Raphael Warnock (D-GA) abstaining, the Senate ended President Joe Biden’s pandemic emergency on Tuesday night with a bipartisan vote of 62-36.
The emergency was extended last month by the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), and it will now endure at least through January 11.
Less than a month before to the extension, the president declared that “the pandemic is over” in an interview with “60 Minutes.”
With the exception of Sasse, who abstained, every Republican senator voted to end the emergency, as did 12 Democrats and Sen. Angus King (I-ME), a member of the Democratic caucus.
Sen. Roger Marshall, M.D. (R-KS), who proposed the resolution on the Senate floor, cited the president’s statements. However, as the senator stressed in his remarks, the problem is not just hypocrisy.
“It was this government imposed state of emergency that justified their continued lockdowns of small businesses and schools… that justified their mask and vaccine mandates, including a military vaccine mandate that has resulted in the removal of more than 8,000 active-duty troops… that justified President Biden and Congressional Democrats spending binge, increasing the total amount of government spending by more than $9 trillion since February 2021 and lighting the fire for record inflation…” Marshall said.
“Congress must take the responsible action of reigning in this massive expansion of government and restore Americans fundamental rights by terminating the COVID-19 national emergency declaration,” Marshall added.
Beyond just the White House, there were negative responses that turned out to be rather comical. The senators in question received a tweet from state senator Nina Turner (D-OH), who unsuccessfully sought for Congress on many occasions and couldn’t even get beyond the primary. What she intends to do beyond tweeting “we see you” to them is unclear.

Another hilarious response came from Mehdi Hasan of MSNBC, who used an angry face emoji in response to the news that Marshall had proposed the resolution. The Senator responded by using his own emoji to literally sling shade.

This one has to sting if you’re in the Joe Biden corner.
More than a dozen Democrats voted to side with a Republican-originating resolution to end the COVID-19 pandemic panic.
Which just leaves egg on the faces of the Biden administration.
You love to see it.
