As the holiday season approaches, Mark Warner has analyzed that the Senate’s job remains undone. He’s considering a handful of potentially disastrous outcomes. The Senate will only be in session for three weeks the rest of 2021, with a recess beginning on December 10. At this moment, there’s almost no way that schedule will hold, with the Democratic majority confronting a to-do list longer than a Black Friday shopping spree. Congress must fund the government beyond December 3, enact a large defense policy package, complete a $1.75 trillion party-line social spending plan, and possibly avoid a credit default by the United States. Each of those four proposals may take several days on the Senate floor, not to mention the numerous conversations still underway between Biden and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who wants to slow things down.
