    They need to get rid of the filibuster – and gerrymandering – permanently. 🤨🤨

    • @Sha Zhu It keeps large states like California from being able to call all the shots, dummy.

    • HR-1, HR-1, HR-1, HR-1, and HR-1.

      Why?

    • @Schievelbein Schievelbein are you seriously telling me that you think 51% or more Americans live in NY or CA?

      Lmfao. Those 2 states make up about 20% of the vote in US elections and they dont vote all democrat or all Republican.

    • @UClLwEQq8yWPhEEpQLIst5vg Are you saying Texas and Florida don’t have more people than New York? You know you can easily google the actual numbers to find that Texas has the 2nd highest population by a large margin. Florida has a slightly larger population than New York. I don’t know why you mentioned economy, economy doesn’t equal votes. US citizens should equal votes, regardless of what state they are calling home at the time.

  2. If holding up literally every bill with the filibuster isn’t scorched earth then nothing is.

    • @Just B
      So Cuomo get’s a pass on killing the elderly and covering it up because Cruz is a baaad guy…
      Got it, *Liberal Logic 101* , my bad.

    • @Bobby S
      Yes Bobby it is that guy and you are 100 percent correct about the Dems.
      Do you even know which bathroom you should be using?

    • @ra5928 Right on brother~~~

    • @Miracle Melody Both parties are trying to get more power, ESPECIALLY the Republicans! Dems just happen to have more power at the moment.

    • Miracle Melody | March 25, 2021 at 1:30 PM | Reply

      @Mary Hoell Yes. I agree. Both parties are trash. This is why I am independent. A real independent is a realist in the world of extremist and narrowed viewpoints. For instance, Republicans , usually refuse to see the basis of why the left started their campaigns, which helps no one. They don’t ask why a graduating GPA of “0” in Baltimore is acceptable.

      Yahoo News 3/18/21- Breaking News : NY nursing home whistleblower: Cuomo’s order was ‘ridiculous and dangerous ‘

      New York nursing home administrator Michael Kraus tells Yahoo News that he warned state officials about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order requiring facilities to take in COVID-positive patients released from hospitals.

      A New York City nursing home director tells Yahoo News  that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order lastyear requiring such facilities to take in COVID-positive patients released from hospitals was “ridiculous” and that he warned state officials “we can’t be doing this.”

      Michael Kraus, the administrator of the Silver Lakes Specialized Care Center in Staten Island, said he immediately raised the alarm after first hearing about the March 25, 2020, order in a conference call with other directors, hospital leaders and state officials.  

      “I said that’s ridiculous. We can’t be doing this. It’s just not right to the residents,” Kraus told Fox News in an exclusive interview with correspondent Aishah Hasnie that aired Thursday on “America Reports.” —:////////

    During their majority, Republicans didn’t care at all about shameless abuse of their power or setting themselves reasonable limits. Now is the time for the pendulum to return.

    • YESSSSSS!!!! PLEASE EVERYBODY CALL YOUR DEM REPS AND TELL THEM!!! WAKE UP!!!! WE HAVE ALL 3 RIGHT NOW AND PUSH THROUGH MAJOR STUFF NOW. ASAP. BEFORE THESE DISGUSTING REPUBLICANS WILL CONTINUE AT NO COST TOO HIGH TO STAY IN POWER. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. 500K+ DEAD, THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS!!

      @Jason Peters Yes, there’s a chance this will all end, under Dem control. Say by, bye America. As to the flu, 1 billion needle kits passed on from Trump admin to Biden admin. Hundreds of needle in the arm stations set up, nationwide. Over a million vaccinated daily under Trump admins last days, doing what The Big Guy Joe Biden said he was gonna’ do before he even said it. Three vaccines ready in less than six months, a time frame Dems made fun of when Trump said he’d do it. Just how damned uninformed can you be?

    • Shaggy Smith | March 20, 2021 at 9:59 PM | Reply

      @useyour brain : 1st of all it wasn’t 6 months. 2nd of all you call it a flu(far right wing talking point to downplay Covid-19) Yet you are CRYING about Trump not getting credit for the speed of “flu vaccines”? If it’s just like a flu, then why care who gets credit? Personally I don’t give credit to neither President because all they did was left safety rules in place so the can be approved earlier. So at BEST they BOTH get credit for pushing a product that has made healthy people sick(the 1st 2 versions of the vaccine with the 2 shot inoculation treatment) Especially the 2nd dose.

      @JJ Jhonny if hair piece 45 handled covid right instead of “downplaying” the virus then nobody would’ve been able to handle it wrong

    • What are u talking about man you Demoncrats are crazy you can’t even show proof of anything , you all destroy anything positive

  6. The Senate is already scorched earth.
    End the filibuster. F Moscow Mitch.

  7. “If you call the cops on me for abusing you than I’m gonna abuse you more!” is what he’d say is he were a wife beater.

  8. It is Mitch McConnell’s hypocrisy and power that need to be scorched!

    Mr. Turtle: “If you get rid of the filibuster it’ll be gridlock, nothing will get done! Now let me get back to using the filibuster to make sure nothing gets done!”

    • You mean the people that are there to a polled the law and were put there to do such. Are supposed to break the law in the Constitution for a moron like this. Anything to destroy our economy our people but big business and government in control of everything let’s keep being run by the coal and oil industry cut them all loose. We don’t need to act for America we especially don’t need threat from Americans or our own government.

      ​@Angel Hart I love this response. Some people are too lazy to analyze the “stats” and other “data” properly. If most people will think for themselves from a political standpoint, there will be hardly any Republican. Take the minimum wage issue, for example. Some say increasing the minimum wage will stifle job creation. Really? There are some very good books on economics that suggest otherwise. Even reality says otherwise. Yet they spew this garbage constantly. There is something about the entrepreneurial spirit that increase in the minimum wage cannot destroy. The law of supply and demand with force people to produce. When I was a boy, I used to pay a penny for a loaf of bread, now I am paying an ‘arm and a leg”. Yet I still buy, and bakeries kept popping up all over.

      New York Times / 3/20/21: ‘Where Europe Went Wrong in Its Vaccine Rollout, [and Why Trump Administration’s Warp Speed won the day.’]

      The calls began in December, as the United States prepared to administer its first batches of Covid-19 vaccine. Even then, it was clear that the European Union was a few weeks behind, and its leaders wanted to know what they could learn from their American counterparts.

      The questions were the same, from President Emmanuel Macron of France, President Ursula von der Leyen of the European Commission, and Alexander De Croo, the prime minister of Belgium.

      “How did you do it?” Dr. Moncef Slaoui, the Trump Administration’s vaccine czar, recalled them asking on the calls. “And what do you think we missed?”

      Since then, the rollout gap between Europe and the United States has only widened, and some of the countries hardest hit early in the pandemic are facing a deadly third wave of infections. France, large parts of Italy, and other regions are back in lockdown. Roughly 20,000 Europeans die of Covid-19 each week.

      Brussels, by comparison, took a conservative, budget-conscious approach that left the open market largely untouched. And it has paid for it.

      In short, the answer today is the same as it was in December, said Dr. Slaoui. The bloc shopped for vaccines like a customer. The United States basically went into business with the drugmakers, spending much more heavily to accelerate vaccine development, testing and production.

      “They assumed that simply contracting to acquire doses would be enough,” recalled Dr. Slaoui, whom President Donald J. Trump hired to speed the vaccine development. “In fact what was very important was to be a full, active partner in the development and the manufacturing of the vaccine. And to do so very early.”

      ‘Not Equipped for a Gunfight’
      The European Union trailed the United States and Britain from the start.

      Washington had already spent billions on clinical trials and manufacturing by the time Europe decided to pool its resources and negotiate as a bloc. In mid-June, the European Commission, the bloc’s executive branch, announced a joint vaccine purchase with a $3.2 billion pot.

      In Washington, Operation Warp Speed, the Trump administration’s vaccine program, had a $10 billion budget. European officials say it’s unfair to compare the two figures because neither amount is a complete picture of all the money spent on vaccines. But there is no dispute that in Washington, officials had decided that money was no object if vaccines could avert the economic cost of a lockdown. Europe, on the other hand, was on a tight budget, so its negotiators chased cheaper doses.

      “Pricing has been important since the beginning,” Sandra Gallina, the E.U.’s main vaccine negotiator, told lawmakers in February. “We are talking about taxpayers’ money.”

      Sorry for my late reply.
      No they didn’t, that was the GOP, not one of the Republicans voted for the Covid19 relief bill. Please get the facts straight. When Mitch McConnell was the leader of the Senate he didn’t even put it to a vote. He even told you so, he was very proud of it as well, seriously you can do better than that, because that is a lie, and by the way: it past in the House of Representatives because of the Democrats, not one Republican voted for it there either. You do know when they vote it’s televised, don’t you, how about you watch it the next time, because that way you can actually see what is going on. You are right the people Trump picked, they tried to block, and look how well that worked out.
      By the way: the Republicans did the same, when Obama was President.
      Please stay safe out there and have a Goodnight!

    That’s what he has done for 10 years! How many bills has he held up and not even voted on? He hasn’t done his job since he bought himself a senate seat!

  14. He’s literally never been held accountable, why is any of this a surprise?

    • neither have any of you.

      While your looking for someone to blame for accountability … where is the accountability for 91% of the 1.9 TRILLIONZ of our tax dollars when only 9% went to the tax payers for Covid relief 🤔 ..

    • Peter Wilson | March 22, 2021 at 1:17 PM | Reply

      @Price is Right Your figures are wrong. You have been lied to. Also 70+% of the population support the bill. The Republicans didn’t want you to get any relief. They will soon take credit though when it stimulates the economy based on people getting money back into there hands to spend.

    • Carl Stough3 | March 24, 2021 at 4:52 PM | Reply

      Amen! We need more people, There are so hateful

    • @Price is Right Over and over, they told you where covid relief was going….the 9% was going to other countries for covid relief…not that Americans got 9%….

  15. Mitch has the kind of personality, and a history of pulling crap, that drives me to think ‘if he’s against something maybe I should be for it, and if he’s for something there must be a problem with it.’
    Just saying.

  16. The fact that tells huge lies so composed and calm makes him a such a sociopath.
