Senate Uses ‘Nuclear Option’ All The Time Despite Manchin & Sinema Saying Otherwise ctm magazine



Rachel Maddow lists recent examples of the Senate using the “nuclear option” to allow legislation to pass with a simple majority instead of the filibuster’s required 60-vote majority, showing that the resistance to a filibuster exception for voting rights legislation is less about procedure than it is about voting rights.

    Hello from Berlin, Germany.
    As a German Democrat I am shocked what‘s happening in the US. Democracy can erode very quickly as to be wittnessed in Poland and Hungary, even more so in Turkey. These countries call themselves democracies, but the ruling parties have slowly but surely eliminated more and more civil rights, just to stay in power.
    Please, Americans, dont let this happen in yor country. Unfortunately most US citizens are poorly educated and politically ignorant.
    So it is much easier for the little republican minority to manipulate a whole country.
    It is so sad.

    But DO NOT WORRY! DEMOCRATS ARE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING! THEY ARE COWARDS!

    This is what I don't understand about the Democrats because McConnell used the nuclear option the whole time Trump was in office but I know the biggest problem the Democrats have Joe manchin and Christian Cinema their states need to replace them with pro-democrats because they are nothing but Republicans hiding in the Democratic party

  • Barbara Bretti on January 20, 2022

    Munchin and cinema two Republicans dressed up as Democrats! Disgraceful

  • Winter Storm Watch on January 20, 2022

    Bought and paid for by large corporate donors. Corruption runs deep.

    REPUBLICANS ARE PUTIN FACISTS

  • Rosalind Sneh on January 20, 2022

    So what is Joe Manchin Sine ma is preaching about? I hope that they can following what Republican have been doing waiting our time.

  • DJBTMD on January 20, 2022

    Thank you, Rachel.

  • George Mavros on January 20, 2022

    Can someone explain to me why Manchin and Sinema have such a hardon for protecting the filibuster at the detriment of Democracy? What is in it for them? What do they or their donors gain from restricting the vote? Surely they are cutting off their nose despite their face?

  • Maxime D'Amour on January 20, 2022

    Manshin and Sinema are defacto republican lawmakers.

  • S R on January 20, 2022

    How can anyone believe that face.
    Who is the bigger fool: The fool, or the fool who follows him?

  • Gregory Brunson on January 20, 2022

    We know Then the Republican always making threat when the Democrats try it. Straight hate from the Republican But they got Machin K S in his corner for the majority

    Moscow Mitch the Leader of the RED Cell.

  • Gordon Tyree on January 20, 2022

    THE IGNORANCE DEMONSTRATED IN THE COMMENTS ABOUT THIS SO CALLED “VOTING RIGHTS” BILL IS EPIC! THE BILL HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH VOTING RIGHTS PEOPLE! THE BILL IS ABOUT CONTROL…FOR THE SOCIALIST/MARXIST DEMOCRATIC PARTY! AMERICA WINS, THE SOCIALIST/MARXIST DEMOCRATIC PARTY LOSES! THANK GOD FOR AND MAY GOD BLESS SENATORS MANCHIN AND SINEMA! IT’S SO REFRESHING TO SEE DEMOCRATS WHO VOTE COUNTRY OVER PARTY! GOD BLESS AMERICA! 🇺🇸

    Organizing and voting is the nuclear option now

  • Mona Louise on January 20, 2022

    🤦🏾‍♀️🙏🏾🙌🏾

  • Joanna A. on January 20, 2022

    Biden is a weak president which doesn't help matters

  • Shiloha Ben Judah on January 20, 2022

    Unfortunately, this isn’t new. Marginalizing people of color has always been bipartisan. It takes a majority for things like this to keep happening. The 2 Democratic senators agree with Republicans that access to the tolls for black and brown folks is a threat to white supremacy.

  • marmac on January 20, 2022

    BTW, Klobachar made the most compelling argument against the 'sanctity' of the filibuster of any others that i have heard, so far!

  • J P on January 20, 2022

    The FEDERALIST SOCIETY has broken America.

  • E C on January 20, 2022

    Manchin & Sinema mentally AWOL !

  • Caligula . on January 20, 2022

    Mad cow is being indicted soon for the false Russia scandal about damned time!

  • Christian 153 on January 20, 2022

    Democrats just used the filibuster a week ago but are now complaining about it?

  • Curtis Kellam on January 20, 2022

    Republicans have decided they don't need Blacks' votes to win state and presidential elections since the vast majority won't vote for them anyway. We will see if their racist strategy works this year and in 2024.

  • James Caporale on January 20, 2022

    Both Manchin and Sinema know their obstruction will likely result in Republicans taking back both the House and the Senate…I firmly believe Both these faux Democrats prefer sitting in the minority…..where they don't have to vote on any Dem legislation , outing themselves as truer Republicans every time a current vote comes up .

  • Joyce Williams on January 20, 2022

    The greedy from Arizona and Virginia democratic leaders.

  • Khris Peter on January 20, 2022

    Jeez Maddow even working from home the budget is being cut, sure sign the show is dead! If it’s all Democrat it’s legit, but if it’s bipartisan it’s wrong. 🤣

  • 2NDARYB18C1 on January 20, 2022

    Just like how mitch and gop acquitted trump two Impechment that led to the Insurrection(1/6/21).

  • sonand sanford on January 20, 2022

    Everyone knows Manchin and Senima sold their souls to the highest bidder.

  • Sionnach MacBradaigh on January 20, 2022

    The difference is this is about race and keeping black and brown people out of power.
