Has the stimulus/ relief bill passed?

I know the Senate did. How about the Dem controlled House? The live camera feed doesn’t seem to work.

Still waiting; may happen at any time.

 

At least one Rep. was threatening to block a voice vote, and force more debate.  He has been roundly booed by his compatriots, who now had to get back to DC in time to vote.

The thing about a voice vote — the loudest side wins. 
 

There might have been an agreement in place to allow the bill to pass or fail, but that would depend on trust that each side was going to live up to its side of the agreement. 
 

Also, a voice vote gives political cover. Someone can say they were for it, while actually being against it. A roll call vote forces ‘representatives’ to show their cards.
