    I sure hope so because they've been serious about other stuff and still was unable to get anything more than small fragments of seriously intended legislation passed. Cinema and senator manchin are so obviously in bed with money groups I simply do not understand how there's not investigations into the obscene and rampant corruption but that would be both parties essentially and all occupants except for Senator Sanders in his like-minded progressives.

    DO IT

    THE FILIBUSTER IS NOT A RULE. You do NOT have to change the Senate rules. Stop with this “carve out” insanity. Abolish it. It’s not a rule. It’s not a part of the constitution. It’s nothing but a stupid tradition. End it. NOW.

    As far as I am concerned, we have two parties. One that wants democracy and one that wants a dictatorship. They need to strike the iron while it's hot. If they fail in eleven months, they many never get another opportunity.

    What are you going to do to protect freedom today? Resonates…

    Voting rights who cares why vote it does not make a difference for regular people nothing will change…

    Can we depend on Manchin and Sinema?

    Funny how the right only cares for two Constitutional Amendments and they are the 2nd and only part of the 1st. They want gun owner to have zero regulations and or licensing and only Freedom of Religion in the1tAmmeenmentwhere they can use religious freedom to discriminate at will but are against the right of free speech and protesting the government unless it is they the themselves doing it. Yet when it come to the most sacred right to Vote which is defined in not one but 4 Constitutional Amendments the 15th, 19th 24th and 26th. There the want to place all kinds of restrictions and ID requirements so in their eyes you can carry a weapon in public w/o a permit or license but not with voting. Just look at their hypocracy on abortion where they want to tell a woman what she can do with her own body while simultaneously shouting my Body My Choice when it come to vaccines and wearing face masks both of which can save lives of people actually living while only Zygotes and embryo's lives matter to them. I believe in all our rights and that all should have equal protection. To those who are against abortion I suggest that you don't get one but you don't have the right to dictate your choices onto others.

    Defenders of democracy need to get as active as the right wingers or the US is lost.

  • mohamed said on December 18, 2021

    Why aren’t the Court blocking voter suppression laws?

  • All Lies BStrong on December 18, 2021

    If they keep taking our rights away eventually they will be hurting themselves more than the fair and good Americans will no longer be the citizens we were and they will lose control of the nation as a whole and it will be bad karma

  • All Lies BStrong on December 18, 2021

    Thanks for speaking your wisdom

    Someone should "GET MAD" and attack this problem before it's to late. Dems seem to acknowledge this is a problem and talk real nice about it. Get some BALLS and do something.

    Very good

    It is long overdue.

    Sen. Warnock hit the topic hard when he noted that economic issues rated a filibuster carve out, but voting rights not so much. Making a filibuster exception for economic issues but pondering about voting rights is like the old Jack Benny routine. He told about facing a robber who said: "Your money or your life." Benny paused and paused. Urged on by the robber, he replies, "I'm thinking. I'm thinking."
    This is a "Your money or your democracy crisis." Which one are our politicians willing to choose?

    Prosecution when?
    These investigations need to get to trial soon, or the Dems won’t have the authority to keep investigating.
    I sure hope they aren’t pinning their re-election strategy on a drip feed of news briefs from a perpetual investigation keeping people angry.
    Keeping people angry enough to actually vote Democrat for almost a year is going to be a tall order.

    Ya too bad you are trying to let non citizens and dead people and people from different areas vote

  • cuntpunter mcG on December 19, 2021

    We already seen the "sherade"

  • Davonte McPherson on December 19, 2021

    Can't cheat anymore eh liberals! Worried much? Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha! Let's go Brandon!

    If you had a football team that didnt believe in the rules of football, they would not be allowed to participate in NFL games.

    Why is the GOP still allowed to participate in our democracy?

  • Ines Cintron on December 19, 2021

    Stop the indecision DEMOCRAT'S HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO GO FORWARD WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES BACK HIM UP IN EVERY DECISION

  • Midge Barker on December 19, 2021

    No change to filibuster. When your in the minority, you'll want the filibuster.

  • Chuck Chapman on December 19, 2021

    They get serious about everything that matters, now, DO SOMETHING!!!!!

  • Shane Alan on December 19, 2021

    Democrats changing election rules heavily in their favor in advance of a coming election? Where have we seen this before?

  • Shane Alan on December 19, 2021

    Republicans have "de-fortified" elections in some states and democrats are panicking

  • Marchant2 on December 20, 2021

    trump's lie that was bigger than his election lie was that he was going to Make America Great Again.

    America has never been more threatened or worse off because of that tyrant.

  • quick65filly on December 20, 2021

    They sure protected the last one. Made JFK's Illinois theft look like child's play. And despite the fact that the rest of the developed world requires some form of voter ID and bans or closely regulates mail ballots, the commies are going to make sure their fraud is codified and well-oiled in every state. But its about "voting rights". Oh yeah. Believe them.

  • ccab on December 21, 2021

    Voter ID is a must Brandon

  • Candace H on December 22, 2021

    To think America the great can't maintain it's democracy….

  • beanhead61 on December 22, 2021

    Senate Democrat says to Senate Republican, "would you put down the knife please?". Republican says, "I can't I'm busy stabbing you with it." Democrat says, "I'll ask you again later when your, not busy."
