Senate will vote on criminal justice reform bill this month

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Tuesday that the Senate will vote this month on a bipartisan criminal justice reform bill, which has been publicly endorsed by President Trump but opposed by some hardline conservatives.
Why it matters: McConnell has said he would only bring the bill to the floor if it had the votes to pass. The bill has continued to gather support among both parties over the past few weeks and is almost certain to pass the Senate, but will have to go back through the House before reaching the president's desk. McConnell said members should "be prepared to work between Christmas and New Year's if necessary in order to complete our work."
This is good news, finally some bipartisan work happening.

Finally a president doing something to help with the issue of black Americans and the penal system.


No more calling them super predators 

First he fixed some of Obama's messes now he is fixing the mandatory minimum problem Bill Clinton created.

TBH  I am a optimist myself. As someone who has family that has done time and is looking at even more time as we speak this is good. I saw Can Jones talk about this in Bill Maher a couple weeks ago and it was good.

I also think this is a good thing.  If the Reps and Senators have to work over Christmas to get it done, then that is just fine as well.
