  •  Yes they can. (5+ / 0-)
    Can Senators add to each bill - complete CR funding - and send them back to the House?
    Just like they did with the first few House CR's, where they put the ACA spending back in and sent it back. They can and SHOULD take all five of the piecemeal bills, amend each of them back to a clean CR, then send everything back to the House.

        We want the narrative to remain entirely that the Republicans are being insane, NOT that the Democrats are beginning to make "unreasonable" demands as well.

        Anything that goes to the Senate should return to the House as a clean CR, or a clean CR plus a debt ceiling hike. Keep it as simple as possible.
