    None of these so called moderates have changed their minds on the Filibuster, even on making an exception for voting rights. They merely pretended to be in favor of a rules change because they knew that Manchin and Sinema would never agree to it.

  • Brother Taro on January 20, 2022

    The Republicans as well as Manchin and Sinema work for wealthy special interests, not for the good of the nation. When are the people who support them going to wake up to this con game?

  • D S on January 20, 2022

    Doug lost me from, “the filibuster was not designed to obstruct”. Girl. What white world is this?

  • N&N's Numbers and Notes Unlimited. on January 20, 2022

    Replace groceries with voting stations and USA is the deceased Soviet Union with its endless lines.

  • Marc Siste on January 20, 2022

    I don't know one single US adult citizen who couldn't legally vote (once).

  • Marc Siste on January 20, 2022

    It is a Bipartisan Majority that Rejected Biden Effort to Change Senate Rules

  • maodonimega on January 20, 2022

    The GOP don't want to go back to their constituents and let them know it's going to be easier for them to vote, have cheaper medications, a fair wage and all that other good stuff Democrats are trying to pass? What's wrong with these fools?

  • louis wilson on January 20, 2022

    Let My Grandma Vote !

  • Marv Watkins on January 20, 2022

    Manchin and Sinema are "secret republicans". And definite DINO, corporatist partisan traitors.
    No cinema in my mansion.

  • Marv Watkins on January 20, 2022

    Manchin believes in "tradition", no matter how illogical and wrong it is.

  • Jim Miller on January 20, 2022

    The Dems trying to legalise voter fraud

  • Kenneth Ellison on January 20, 2022

    What? "There needs to be a wholesale look at the rules?" They just tried to temporarily suspend ONE rule to pass the voting rights bill and it failed. The majority can't even muster it's own body to pass the simplest bills. "Dysfunctional" doesn't begin to describe the Senate.

  • NewOldVideos on January 20, 2022

    Here is the reason WHY Manchin and Sinema are TRAITORS to OUR Democracy… Ready ???
    Wait for it….

  • Jettabusy Jackson on January 20, 2022

    You can't have a democracy without a free and fair election and Biden and the cheating Mala lost the election on November 3rd when the polls closed on the deadline at the cut off time the election ended with the President Trump landslide win and Biden bussed in a week's worth of late China bot mail fraud votes to claim a late win a week after the election was already over and there was no transfer of Power

  • David Garvin on January 20, 2022

    This is a must read
    The problem in our government is the recess structure it is set up under we have 50 GOP all white racist senators.

    Now we have the democratic party roughly 40 senators and I’m being generous African-American and minority.
    Now we have 10 what you would call moderate Democrats that are all white strategically placed in the democratic party for such a time is now.
    And has always infiltrated that party to keep the minorities in the African-American from making any major legislation such as passing the HR 40 bill.

    Enclosing it does not matter that the Democrats has the presidency the Senate and the house when the GOP Republicans have a solid 50 votes because they’re all white men in another 10 Democratic’s foods from the moderate or white Democrat.
    This is the white means hold onto power to keep himself up and suppress others and they are many in the government like Joe Biden who were just fine with that structure.
    There should be no party in government that has new diversity.

  • Darkstarr2021 on January 20, 2022

    Authoritarianism is coming America …. So pucker up buttercups…. It’s gonna be a hoot …..

  • Myra Harrell Fleming on January 20, 2022

    The deep dark Republicans have been working hard to eliminate our Democracy for The People. Our voting rights for all people…scary party.

  • Al-Paciyes on January 20, 2022

    No ID, no vote

  • Samantha Therese on January 20, 2022

    So if democrats lose this is their move, democracy is in peril!

  • Frederik Löwen on January 21, 2022

    The GOP will eliminate the filibuster the instant they get in power.

  • James T on January 21, 2022

    America is going to turn communist if/when Trump is placed in power.

  • ZEN ARCHER on January 21, 2022

    Why don’t Manchin and Sinema want Democrats to stay in power is the real question? If voting rights bill is passed Democrats will hold the White House for years to come so why? Because they are either being blackmailed or bought, paid for and owned by the rich.

  • Burton Schrader on January 21, 2022

    FOX? Rupert Murdoch. His platforms spew hate and misinformation on 3 continents 24/7 for profit, he must be stopped. “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it' – Joseph Goebbels 1933. Where did that take us?

  • Hil Pei on January 21, 2022

    Get the money out of politics it is corrupting everything! It's why we have trump the destroyer. These "public servants" are getting paid big bucks and get nothing done!

  • dnate697 on January 21, 2022

    Doug still can't see! The perfect message means NOTHING if, a lot, not all the folks who'd vote for you can't Vote. Sinema and Manchin are PAID to do what they did. The rest of the Dems need to remove him from his Committees!

  • Leah Means on January 21, 2022

    The fillibuster is not part of the constitution.

  • Dana Tompkins on January 21, 2022

    Because theyre corporate whores. Thats why. You and the congressman are part of the problem. You dont want the People to know the truth.

  • Kenneth Cheesbrough on January 21, 2022

    Why is everybody worried about the voteing system now when they were not worried in 2020 or2016. But now the dems might loose seats it all of a sudden a major deal. The dems will seat because they did it to them selves.. the voteing system didnt do this to them.

  • Lisa Gibbs on January 21, 2022


  • Lisa Gibbs on January 21, 2022

    Need to get rid of the senate. taxpayer money is being wasted by paying these people. time to shut it down.

  • hrhrae1959 on January 21, 2022

    Hope is not a strategy, Senator. And we're tired of hearing about "hope". I'd rather you just said it was over. So that we can fight over something new.

  • Chris Hauke on January 21, 2022

    Who really thinks Synema and Manchin's fear of McConnell using the carve out is their reason for opposing eliminating the filibuster. Those two are simply self serving fascists in democratic clothing.

  • T S on January 22, 2022

    BS media hype. All this will do is waste people’s times, waste tax payers dollars and further divide the US. It’s politically Driven and will end of nowhere. Again

    Could you imagine the hysteria in the media ifRussia was about to invade Ukraine and North Korea were setting off missiles with Trump in office? The media is deranged – too busy trying to frame Trump and not addressing things for what they are..

    Biden Compared 1/6 to 9/11 and Pearl Harbour!! That’s an unforgivable insult to all the victims and their families of these two “real” colossal events. The BLM riots are a comparison; not the two worst acts of mass murder and war on the American people that killed thousands of US civilians and servicemen/women. You realise how many people died as a result of the BLM riots? 25! Not to mention the costs to repair public property and the costs to businesses that were looted and destroyed.. That was absolutely disgusting but you fools will sweep these events under the carpet because you know the blood is on your hands. The future generations will look back on us as being corrupt and delusional. I’m so ashamed.

    What else on Je Je Joe?

    -the media celebrated when he lasted an hour in a media scrum.. He’s the president and these are the things people celebrate with this clown. Yes, that’s the standard!
    -Compared George Floyd with Martin Luther King
    -Build back better collapse
    -Clearly unwell and senile
    -All-time high in crime nationally. 2021 closed with most homicides ever in history
    -Defund the police mess
    -Evidence of him and his son doing backhand deals – not to mention the quid pro quo with Ukraine. There’s No surprise Russia sniffing around the border getting ready to invade
    -vaccine mandate will be rejected by high court
    -Afghanistan embarrassment – abandoning your allies like rats. The people who have stood by the US through thick and thin. What a Dog act and a representation of a coward
    -Inflation is the worst in 40 years
    -Can’t remember the Australian prime minister name
    -Killed power Independence – fuel prices
    -Ruined relations with France over submarines deal
    -Russian border about irrupt into war and are likely to invade Ukraine & Kazakhstan
    -he basically gave Russia the green light to invade
    -The US Mexican border is a humanitarian crisis
    -Covid completely unmanaged – no testing kits and new heights of infection
    -Chicago education collapse
    -No follow up on the origin / cause of Covid.. Who is accountable for this global mess? Too afraid of the truth Mr President?
    -China about to invade Taiwan
    -Sick obsession with sniffing kids hair

    Sadly this president and friends have acted on trump derangement syndrome rather than the greater good for Americans and the world. It’s just sad. That 1/6 “insurrection” speech was purely political and was only meant to be divisive. This is the uniting president? No…. He’s just a joke. Literally… a joke. That was a day that some people believed in something enough to protest and it unfortunately went too far. There’s no conspiracy. So stop contaminating people’s minds with this “insurrection” rubbish.

    No one takes the old man seriously, he’s dodgy and senile; meanwhile China and Russia are aggressively pushing their agendas knowing America can’t and won’t do anything about it. Biden is weak and so is America while he is in the white-house. We are watching a once “great nation”, get divided and slip down the drain. The US is no longer the force it once was and absolutely not the leader of the free world anymore. Not even your closest allies have faith anymore.

    All you Trump obsessed democrats; compare Biden’s score sheet to Trump (up to now in their term) CNN can’t re-engineer those facts. Trump was a reasonable president and you will never admit that. You have become paralyzed by an evil form of Atychiphobia when Trump is around. You lose any moral compass and are willing to distort the the truth while killing a great democracy… It’s about winning power at all costs no matter if America dies.

    It’s so ironic, a few years ago the dems fabricated this “Russian collusion” nonesense and completely screwed the government in doing so. Americans suffered, the country divided and Trumps term had a cloud over it, because of a baseless conspiracy made up by his political opposition. There was constant politically driven impeachment rubbish which did no one any good. Very bitter sentiments were born then and there. Now, yes now.. The Russians are actually invading other countries and Biden is turning a blind eye. Seems like Crimea during the Obama era all over again. Funny that! We all know the democrats are the real criminals but constantly use smoke and mirrors in the media to deflect their misdeeds. Look at Joe’s Ukrainian “quid pro quo”- that was actually recorded on video – he boasted about it. Or Obama’s Russian “I’ve got an election coming up”… Mind blowing stuff!

    And here we are now questioning the legitimacy of the next election. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN ACCUSING TRUMP OF!!!! This is all a complete disaster and the country continues to go backward!!!

    The only thing Biden has done is reverse Trump policy when they were the best things going for the US. Go figure???

    How are you not embarrassed? Denial? Trump derangement?

    Name one good thing this guy has done? I challenge you. It’s all backward!

  • mike fobear on January 22, 2022

    trump won the presidency in 2016. With the exactly the same voting system in place, Biden won the presidency in 2020. The GOP voting suppression is a complete scam.

  • JayaByte on January 23, 2022

    If Biden wins again, it's going to be more nothing. If trump wins, it's going to be an authoritarian country where the rich make the rules. Gee, fun.

  • Curt Rodgers on January 23, 2022

    We are all suffering from these politishions that have no dignity,no shame, they play the games they do, us against them, when they are elected to work for the betterment of the people, these politishions stir the divishion's between the people, for there agenda and corporate interest, actions for sale, we all both republicans and democrats and everyone in-between should be shouting and protesting enough all ready enough.

  • Ray Jay on January 23, 2022

    Glorified youtuber. Microsoft NBC is one big distraction

  • Jelly Bean2021 on January 23, 2022

    The senate just needs to go. It's useless.

  • Maria G. on January 23, 2022

    Returning to a talking filibuster means the minority has a lot of time to say their piece but they can’t stop legislation entirely. Manchin even said he was in favor of making the filibuster more difficult in 2021 but now he’s changed the goalposts
