over. And this is how you know it.
Democrats have often claimed a moral high ground when it comes to COVID-19, accusing their Republican colleagues of recklessness and even murder for embracing a more lax approach to masking and testing. But now they’re so desperate for a legislative victory that they’re throwing caution to the wind by quietly embracing a “Don’t Test, Don’t Tell” COVID policy this weekend ahead of the vote on the $764 billion spending bill (erroneously dubbed the Inflation Reduction Act) in the evenly split chamber.
… a senior Senate aide told Puck News. “They’re not going to delay it if a member has gotten COVID… Counterparts are saying they’re not going to test anymore. It’s not an official mandate but we all know we’re not letting COVID get in the way. The deal is happening. Less testing, just wear masks and get it done.”
