Majority Leader Hoyer seemed to indicate House Democrats were conditioning their bringing up H.R. 962 in the House on Senate Republicans taking up H.R. 1, their priority legislation, in the Senate.

Hoyer said, “The gentleman mentioned, earlier, H.R. 1 and that Mr. McConnell has said that wouldn't be brought up. In fact, when it passed this House, it went to the Senate, and it was not brought up by Senator McConnell.  So there are no plans at this point in time for us to bring this up.”

This could be a huge opportunity for positive bipartisan developments in Congress. This isn't a condition to pass anything in either chamber; it would simply be an agreement for each chamber to hold debate on the other party's legislation. This could go a long way on (a) the issues raised in both pieces of legislation and (b) relationships among Members of Congress and across the aisle.

Please pray for more conversation among Congressional leaders. God can still work in this Congress!

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” (Mark 9:23-24)
