As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by DAILYCALLER.COM:
The Senate unanimously passed Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul’s bill to stop sending social security money to dead people Tuesday but seemed unaware that they had actually agreed to pass the bill.
Paul asked the Senate to pass the bill and Republican Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn asked, “is there objection?”
The article goes on to state the following:
“There is a unanimous consent request pending. There is a reservation and the right to object,” Blackburn said. Her question was met with several seconds of silence.
Another senator is heard saying, “If there’s no objections, I guess it passes.”
Confused whispers can be heard. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) steps up and says, “Now, something just passed. I’m gonna ask a ruling for the chair and find out what passed.”
Even the chairman could not provide an answer when asked about the bill. WATCH what happened in the video below:

“Congress owes it to the American people to be fiscally responsible with their resources, and I am pleased my legislation passed without objection,” Paul tweeted afterward.
