We Have A 'Talking Stick' To Thank For Ending The Government Shutdown

Susan Collins, a Republican senator from ME, held a meeting with about two dozen lawmakers in her office. Susan Collins of ME said centrists flexed their muscle to help end the federal government shutdown.

When Rounds and King appeared on CNN to talk about the short-term bill to reopen the government, Cuomo jokingly grilled them on what they knew about Collins' broken decoration. She made a decision to have the senators use a "talking stick" to make it clear whose turn it was to speak. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D. - to help bring order out of the chaos.

Channeling rage from immigration activists, the possible 2020 candidates were highly critical of their leaders' willingness to trust that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, will allow an immigration vote after February 8 if senators can not strike a deal before then. He said in return, it would be his "intention" to quickly resolve disputes over immigration, disaster recovery and the budget.

Yes, this is the same "talking stick" method used to prevent schoolkids from cross-talking.

Following a three-day shutdown over partisan squabbles, Republican and Democratic legislators representing West Virginia in Congress praised a deal to reopen the federal government Monday and defended their individual actions.

Upon the outburst, Alexander reportedly tossed the stick "forcefully" in Warner's direction clipping and chipping Collins' glass elephant. It now consists of 25 Republicans, Democrats, and Independent Sen.

Shortly after the meeting, two-thirds of the Senate's Democrats voted to advance the plan and end the shutdown.

McConnell was "more specific and more encouraging", said Sen.

Ahead of the vote to end debate, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, warned McConnell to keep his word, saying if he doesn't, "he will have breached the trust of not only the Democratic senators, but members of his own party as well".
