    Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema gave a nod to her late predecessor Sen. John McCain with a flashy thumbs down vote in the Senate on Friday. Video captured in the Senate chamber showed the newly elected Sinema making the move to reject a proposal from Sen. Bernie Sanders to include a $15 minimum wage increase into the Senate’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package. Sinema was joined by seven other Senate Democrats as well as all Republicans. McCain famously voted no on a Senate plan to repeal Obamacare in 2018 with a thumbs down that ultimately sunk the effort. Though she supports raising the wage, Sinema said she would support the ruling of the Senate Parliamentarian who determined that the minimum wage could not be included as part of the Reconciliation process, a Senate protocol, which is allowing the coronavirus relief bill to pass with 51 votes as opposed to the customary 60 necessary to override a filibuster. “Senators of both parties have shown support for raising the federal minimum wage and the Senate should hold an open debate and amendment...
    Debate moderator Susan Page on Wednesday posed zero questions to Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris about Harris raising money for a bail fund that helped free multiple domestic abusers and a man accused of sexually penetrating an eight-year-old child. Page also failed to ask Harris, a California senator, whether she and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will pack the Supreme Court if they win the November election. When Pence pressed Harris on the matter, Page allowed Harris to dodge the question without providing a clear answer. Moderator Susan Page, Washington bureau chief for USA Today (Morry Gash-Pool/Getty Images) Harris on June 1 instructed her Twitter followers to donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund during the unrest following George Floyd’s death. The fundraising page Harris linked to in the tweet included her picture and her former presidential campaign’s slogan. While Harris indicated that contributions to the fund would “help post bail for those protesting on the ground in Minnesota,” the MFF also repeatedly bailed out people accused of violent crimes unrelated to the protests.
