$SPY Republican controlled Senate led by McConnell is required to show up to the chamber in order to vote. Democratic controlled House led by Pelosi no longer has that requirement. I have no idea how this somehow became a political point, what happens when the US Senate begins to look like Iranian leadership, dropping like flies. The virus doesn't know or care what your political affiliation is, it's not some curse sent by your god to punish your enemies, it's a mindless object guided by nothing more than the rules of chemistry and physics. Both the House and Senate are full of the most vulnerable people, they're nearly all extremely old, so irresponsible to use this as a political point just because it's making your god emperor look bad.
