"50-50, Senate votes to open debate on the Democrats’ reconciliation bill, with VP Harris breaking the tie, opening up an intense couple days on their party’s health and climate package that Republicans vigorously oppose," CNN's Manu Raju reported from Washington, D.C.
In Dallas, Trump blasted Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.
Trump said, "Mitch McConnell has hurt our party very badly. Should have never happened."
"And I said it and I said it publicly when they approved that horrible infrastructure deal and then they go and do this, and they're not finished -- they still have a little time left," Trump said.
