Disgraceful people. The walkout by the Dems in Wisconsin left them in the wilderness for the next 7 years (so far). Let’s hope the voters react the same way. Be an adult. Stay in the room. Make your statement. Cast the vote on behalf of the people who elected you. That’s your job.
Democratic senators Kamala Harris of California, Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Patrick Leahy of Vermont walked out of the meeting in protest.
Staff for Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey left the room, signaling he might walk out too.
