  1. Remove filibuster and make a truly once in a lifetime kind of investment into infrastructure, jobs, people, and the future of the world.

  2. Can all the 1% actually be billed for and have their back unpaid taxes collected and after those billions with interest are figured in then see what we need for a budget?..

  3. Hey Manchin! It’s NOT YOUR MONEY! If the GOP didn’t give the 1% a tax cut, we would be getting thousands of Trillions from them paying their fair share! You are going to say you are holding it up because you don’t want to spend a $1 Trillion? When the rich 1% owes over $1 Quadrillion or $ 1,000 Trillions?

    1. @Coasterman13 Official If you hate it, can you deny that it happened? Do you have facts that this didn’t happen? Is it True or Not? Did the GOP give the 1% a tax cut, while the other 99% did not? Is this true or not? Do you hate being confronted with the truth?

    2. @Hankakah you know, there are other things you could be doing right now instead of being a trumper.

  4. Joe Manchin is a lingering thorn in the side of Democrats. He is more a GOPer and sooo aggravating.

  5. BILLIONAIRES Doubled their INCOME in 2020…..
    BILLIONAIRES Biggest Purchase Yachats 2020…
    _The Last Chance for FREEDOM is not going to be a TAX BREAK for the RICH!_

  6. The filibuster goes as far back as 1838 that was created by a S. Carolina pro-slavery U.S. Senator, named John C. Calhoun who had a terrible disposition. The filibuster was not added to the Constitution. The Framers didnt approve of it.

  7. Who knows? Maybe Mothman will pay ol’ Mitchy-Boy a visit, give him a little incentive, ‘Ya know Mitch we both have nasty names and absurd legends surrounding us both, so if you don’t want people to start seeing me around that ol’ bridge, seeing as how EVERY Kentuckian knows what that means, eh?? You dwell on that over your ‘summer break,’ and I’ll swing back over to see what happens, eh? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.’

  8. Imagine a country run by fools who care nothing for their fellow citizens. You don’t have to, it is called America. All these politicians are only interested in their own power and enrichment.

  9. Manchin and Sinema are on Exxon’s payroll, so goodbye any legislation that puts 3xxon in check.

  10. Are you in the market for a Senator today?
    If so Manchin and Sinema are on sale at a very reasonable price.

  11. Republicans in the Senate represent 44 million less people than Democrats. This has to change. America ranks very low on the list of democracy compared to other countries. Which is sad being that it’s supposed to be the land of the free.

  12. See how you can get things done by passing bills democrats? Stop the city protesting and get them to pass bills to get what they want. Damaging your own cities does nothing.

    1. What? Why? How did your brain equate the two? Are you ok?
      Btw, the budget bill is the only thing Dems can pass without a 60 vote, it just needs 51. You know that right? That’s why it’s important to take down filibuster of 60 vote.

  13. Any senator that doesn’t vote to pass these bills should be told that if they don’t,their state won’t benefit from anything in the Infrastructure plan & lose out.!!!One way to pile pressure on & pass it fast.!!!

  14. US ANTIQUE INFRASTRUCTURE: “The eyes of history are on this appointment.” – Buttigeig.
    1964 Japan’s first bullet trains were put in service and the the first Beatles album was released.
    1998 China started the construction of 36,000km of high speed railways and high speed trains.
    2021 US still has NO high speed trains and NO safe overpasses or apartment blocks…

  15. Great strategy of Progressive Dems to say no passage of bipartisan bill without passing the Reconciliation bill First! Awesome Leaderships!!

  16. People will be kicking themselves in few weeks if they miss the opportunity to buy and invest in bitcoin

    1. @Daniel Pronk That won’t bother you if you trade with a professional like Mr Micheal Wayne
