OK, so a senior staff member of Kennedy’s wants to be appointed interim Senator and presumably re-hire all the staff.
What is the cost of that to taxpayers? Shouldn’t we keep the office closed and let all those staffers have a nice long Christmas vacation? How much are we talking here?
How much are we talking here?
Is that worth appointing some staffer to make one vote? Really, if one vote makes such a big difference to the outcome of a bill, doesn’t that show that the vote should be done after a Senator is elected? If they can’t get 60 without the former head of the DNA and Kennedy’s staffer, then they can’t get 60, and we’ll just wait.
Again, how much $$$ does Kirk cost?
