    Joe Mansion need to tell Biden to put in there to pay senior citizens for years like he did the families with children he has done nothing for civil rights him or Pamela Harris every blue moon they throw it up and he has done nothing for seniors who are struggling that's what they need to put in the bill back better where we can get stimulus like the families with children did and he still wants to continue that for them and nothing for senior citizens they need to redo the bill back better plan because there's nothing to benefit me as a senior period just like the infrastructure bill is not going to benefit my neighborhood where I live only in the white areas and areas where politicians live Indianapolis would get all this money and nothing on the west side in my area will get done

    It's always important for us to keep in mind why there has been all this talk about the filibuster. The only reason it is an issue at all is because there aren't as many as ten decent, honest, conscientious, politically mature, socially responsible Republicans in the US Senate. The whole party has become cultishly partisan, spitefully obstructionist, flagrantly immoral, and malignantly derelict. They have been somewhat charred in that way for a long time, but Trump threw gasoline on the embers. And he's still doing it.

  • Alta Montgomery on December 18, 2021

    I think it's time for him to cut the child tax credit and put in there and let the senior citizens for a change get some stimulus they have gotten enough it's time for biting to put in the bill back better a cut off of that and start paying senior citizens in the same way he did the child tax credit otherwise there's nothing that's benefiting seniors in the bill back better playing. We are struggling and suffering we can barely pay our bills off of this little social security that they're giving us that we don't worked all our lives for which they are taking most of what we work for for themselves it's time for them to put in the bill back better stimulus for senior citizens like they did the child tax credit he wants to continue the child tax credit and don't want to give senior citizens anything it's a flop I don't like this bill back better it's not benefiting seniors in no form way or fashion

  • Yowhannes Barok on December 18, 2021

    Must vote don't mixed the human and constration first respect human don't use the people with ejection not touch human no bomb country no making nazi agendas we never forget this don't support hams don't put your fingers in isreal

  • Alta Montgomery on December 18, 2021

    I think it's time for him to put in the bill back better a stimulus package for senior citizens like he did the child tax credit why is Biden leaving out senior citizens we need somebody to run in 2024 that will stand up for senior citizens because surely Biden and Kamala Harris is not they're giving child tax credit money to people to help them out of property but what about senior citizens who are struggling every day to pay their bills we are in property too

  • Alta Montgomery on December 18, 2021

    I do not like to build back better playing abiding because there's nothing in it for seniors citizens he needs to put a stimulus package in there for senior citizens who are in property and struggling getting a little $600 social security check or $800 there's nothing in the bill for senior citizens no stimulus or nothing we are in poverty we're barely hanging on the bill back better needs to be redone

  • Alta Montgomery on December 18, 2021

    I am a senior citizen in the bill back better is not benefiting me we need a stimulus like the child tax credit to help us out a property no the bill back better does not have anything for seniors they keep giving and giving to families with children who are in property will seniors are in property too inviting has not even said anything about trying to give us the same plan that he did with families with children and we are struggling and in poverty we can barely afford to pay our bills so there's nothing in that bill back better plan that would benefit any seniors we already have plans that you can get to win it and all of that that's old news

  • Alta Montgomery on December 18, 2021

    I'm glad Congress is more concerned about voting rights than Biden and Kamala Harris they only bring it up every blue moon if they would bring it up like they bring up Colbert maybe we can get a voting rights pass but they're not they so concerned with covert and stuff that don't matter to the American people the Bible said we will have plagues and diseases like this there's nothing they can do about it if he will put as much time in getting stimulus for seniors and voting rights Biden and Kamala Harris maybe something can get done and he's got the weakest attorney general ever they need to get rid of Mary Garland because he's been he has been brought by those hand-picked Republicans in the Justice department why isn't Donald Trump and his lap dogs on committees and these politicians locked up or investigated yet if that was Republicans it would only take a few days to prosecute like when Bill Barr was doing the bidding of Donald Trump and prosecuting people for no reason because Donald Trump didn't like them so why is it taking years and months for me Garland to do his job he's the one in charge get rid of Mary Garland now and get somebody in there that's going to get rid of this criminal and those who help him commit these crimes

  • Astrobrant2 on December 18, 2021

    Excellent interview, Joy! You raised important points, asked tough questions, and she gave good, informative answers.
    Oh, and you must also be commended for doing an almost ten-minute interview without engaging in racial grievance even once.

    West Virginians need to send a loud and clear message to Manchin to pass the voting rights bill and BBB

  • Andy Mudia on December 18, 2021

    I now understand why Trump is always saying that Democrats are weak.

  • GRJ2733 on December 18, 2021

    I suggest a referendum among American voters on eliminating the filibuster. Hah. NO Dem or non-Trump "independent" supports keeping the cursed filibuster.

  • GRJ2733 on December 18, 2021

    Again, the Constitution, despite some good points, proves to be pro-wealthy, pro-hater, anti-human.

  • Janet Neighbors on December 18, 2021


  • Romualdo Dawang on December 18, 2021

    Manchin and Sinema are Republicans at heart. They are obviously in the wrong party.

  • Niks on December 18, 2021

    Kamala got rid of her in seconds in VP competion. First wicket out! Sadly but wait 2022 …THE RED WAVE coming and watch the KARMA return to bite.

  • Arturo Villalobos on December 18, 2021

    I love Amy. She can get things done. Great speaker.

  • The Blah on December 18, 2021

    When confronting jello, one must follow the money.

  • bluezinnia847 on December 18, 2021

    I also love Amy Klobuchar. Arrest Joe Manchin for treason against Democracy as well as Sineama! These 2 people are holding up Democracy for thier corrupt actions of supporting and working for DARK MONEY!

  • heyRalph on December 18, 2021

    What would Mitch do

  • bluezinnia847 on December 18, 2021

    Joe Manchin is a traitor against Democracy, and so is his counterpart Sienema! These 2 people must be ousted from the Democratic party now!

  • Genevieve Bahrenburg on December 18, 2021

    I love Amy Klobuchar ! Amy Klobuchar, Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Kathy Hochul are Letitia James all a) men and women and equal and b) women are change makers that are leading our future forward – making change and charging our nation confidently ahead

  • Prince Onyechekwas50 on December 18, 2021

    Joy. The Senator is doing her best to explain the situation better.

  • Prince Onyechekwas50 on December 18, 2021

    Thanks Amy for the help in making the facts easy to understand. I like you anyway .

  • FOSS Joseph on December 18, 2021

    Nothing will get done. Voting rights are gone. America is no more, we have lost what so many have died for. Great job to all my loser countrymen.

  • FOSS Joseph on December 18, 2021

    A year later and now you admit kumbaya joe is a joke?

  • Curtis on December 18, 2021

    I don't trust the standing filibuster. the GOP will happily stand there and talk it to death.

  • M Mc on December 18, 2021

    She would get rid of the whole gop and voters if she could

  • MirageThaHustla on December 18, 2021

    Does somebody need a shakedown? 🤔 Me thinks, yes!

  • Yourdeadmeat69 on December 19, 2021

    Congress just cut out the filibuster to pass the debt ceiling a week ago. What is this crap they can't do it for voting rights? What is this crap they can't do it for build back better Act? They already DID it!!!

  • Thea Minerva on December 19, 2021

    There's NO DEMOCRACY without VOTING RIGHTS! Is the USA 🇺🇸 a Democratic country or a totalitarian one like China, or North Korea? DEMS MUST REALLY FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM, for once!😤 STOP hidind behind these disgusting greedy worms Manchin, Sinema, or the parliamentarian!🤬🤬

  • Robert Anthony on December 19, 2021

    This is so frustrating, pass the much needed BBB and voting rights legislation, NOW!!!!

  • Wellan Dowd on December 19, 2021

    Amy. Manchin and cinema care about the voting bill so they could be re-elected . They are just lobbyists for big Pharm and Coal

  • West House on December 19, 2021

    This is the epitomy of telling people what they want to hear.

  • mango stallions on December 19, 2021


  • Scott Bigler on December 19, 2021

    You will alienate your party Amy… Dems used filibuster over 200 times in 2020, Republicans only once. 😉

  • Gary Reisman on December 19, 2021

    manchin sinema both blowhards could care less other than their special interests not voters. Kick him to the curb

  • nottiification on December 19, 2021

    Just put some huge coal subsidies on there and Machin will be falling over himself to vote for these bills.
    Selfishness is the fuel that runs this country.

  • Vivian Cathcart on December 19, 2021

    My Dear Ms Amy…you are one if my heroines! I grew up in Minnesota and I’m proud of your intelligence and stamina! We need people like you! From Toronto 🇨🇦💕

  • Rosemarie Bredahl on December 19, 2021

    Election protection … at every stage, should absolutely be the single highest priority (lest all other progress be overturned by corruptly elected officials)!

  • CJ Gust on December 19, 2021

    My good God, how many times do Manchin and Sinema need to say one thing and act another. It doesn’t matter what they say. The only option is to slam the hammer down and call them out for what they are. Call them the paid by big money Republicans that they are. Scream it out during the 2022 and 2024 elections. Blitz the media with why retirees don’t have teeth and can’t afford medication… why the national debt is so high given the tax breaks to the wealthy…. MAGA by going back to the 1960’s tax structure along with a wealth tax.

  • Deborah Feliciano on December 19, 2021

    My question is if we get rid of the filibuster and the Republicans take back the house wouldn't that be bad for all of us. Honestly I don't know how that works

  • william yee on December 19, 2021

    American voters distrust of government goes back to the founding of our country. We believe in a balance of power so instinctually we subconsciously think 50/50 is best but the rise of the filibuster changed the effectiveness of that strategy. Today any senator from either side can block legislation at will and as citizens united allows free speech for corporations their voice is the loudest. Some still think that individual voters matter but business buys senators from both political parties so regardless of elections results their choice still can block all legislation unless a supermajority can be reached. The result is voters pay taxes and but big business tells them how to spend it. our votes give congress Our belief that we can prevent the abuse of power by trying to blindly balancing things 50/50 has led to the necessity of filibuster carve outs for more and more governmental functions that would never occur is a supermajority is the standard. This is proof that the filibuster is a hinderance and it’s role as representing the minority position no longer represents the minority it citizens but instead represents special interests.
    Americans are correct from the beginning that one party should remain in control unchecked but the founders did not anticipate later generations would make the mistakes that created filibuster that made a supporting candidates from any party willing to accept donations a wise investment to advance business interests. The Supreme court said your just exercising political free speech ($$$) and with 50/50 power spit and the 60% filibuster threshold it doesn’t require much payment to block any undesirable legislation.

  • jfrsnjhnsn on December 20, 2021

    I don't usually like Joy, but she hit Klobo with a hard dose of truth and Klobo just blithers and jibbers on like a mental patient.
    Klobo shows how easily rattled she is. With her weak and compromised record, this is why she can't be more than she is. She might as well retire now.

  • SickandTiredofBeingSickandTired on December 20, 2021

    Klobuchar continues to defend Grandpa Munster Manchin like she knows something we don't. That said, Grandpa Munster Manchin is a lying crook who no one should have put their trust in. Grandpa Munster Manchin couldn't even get his so-called voting bill enough votes. And he didn't crave out the filibuster for his own bill. By the way, Grandpa Munster Manchin said that parents will spend their child tax credit on drugs.🤷🏽‍♀️🇺🇲👎🏽

  • quick65filly on December 20, 2021

    Communists change the rules when they're in power because its the only way they can advance their radical agenda. Klobachar is a no talent dunce who abuses her staff. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

  • Vinicio Archila on December 20, 2021

  • Jb on December 21, 2021

  • alecia175 on December 21, 2021

    Then why haven't you gotten rid of the filibuster? Dems don't want to. If they got rid of the filibuster they would have no reason for failure. They will fail Amy is a paid loser and Joy is paid to make excuses for thier incompetence.
