  1. Vote all the swamp out people

    • Alexander L Yep….

    • The Democrats are the party of lobbyists and Billionaires. I hope they have Bloomberg and Steyer on when Trump wins

      @Myballsitchsomethingfierce Right! Name me a politician who doesn’t own a nice house and new cars and donates a large percentage of their income to the poor. If there were enough like that to form a party, I would vote for that party with a clear conscience.
      Unfortunately, we have to pick and choose. I vote policy over personality, and personal freedom over government handouts. Fwiw, a handout, to me, is something that one takes, even though they don’t need it, and greedy people are never too concerned about how the giver is faring. Our nation is deeply in debt, and yet the average American still asks them for help.

    • Alex Hamilton keep trying little Laughable inbred Alexis. Never an argument just the same old same old stupid

    • Dave Schultz look it laughable inbred Schultzy. You trolls are laughable. Last minute push to save your inbred leader.

    It is so bizarre how these people bring their young innocent children to these events.

    Why do we have to be on “sides”.
    Why can’t we just be on the side of all US citizens.

      @GreatNair8 oh wow. I know tons of hard working african Americans, Hispanic Americans etc. And they all do very well financially. I learned how to weld from a Muslim family in the union. Great people, great Americans. Hard work and determination doesn’t discriminate. It always pays off, regardless of color.

    • @CloutChaser5000 not just vaccine for covid ,he is the author of all the medicine and things .u didn’t know that??? Soon we gonna hear how he never uses toilet as it was the north Korea leader

      Ellen Peba I’m sick and tired of your odious bs on here. Quit pretending to be a woman, quit trolling and pick yourself out of the despicable shithole that is your life and fook off somewhere where people might want to listen to you. I mean, if you had even one coherent argument you wouldn’t be such a tiresome bore. A sad, feeble little wart on humanity.

    • Though Obama had a great opportunity that wasn’t fully realized, Trump has delivered ZERO!

  4. Wow. That reporter is audible thru his face mask! Guess the freedom to die is hard to turn down for others.

  5. No matter what is said here, it isn’t a signed contract that can he held accountable in a court of law.

    Senator Bloomfeld said “The unwritten rule in the senate is to KEEP YOUR WORD” Now thats is a joke because i don’t think a senator has kept their word since the 1700’s!

    • @Steven Dains First Nixon and now Trump. How many times do you people need to stand on the wrong side of history to actually make an honest try to be decent human beings?? You are beyond help.

    • Steven Dains considering the recent lies from the republican senators regarding the Supreme Court nomination in amazed you have the unmitigated Gaul to even ask such a boneheaded question. From now on take the pills the nurse gives you. You’ll feel better.

    • @Jack Delaney well there’s good and evil right now the Republican party is doing more evil and causing more evil than democrats; Trump will be in a state of Degradation when he gets into paradise on the wrong side of the Gulf in Heaven

    • After Kavanaugh all bets are off.

    • @Marcus Guzman Republicans are basically the same as Democrats. Both have the same level of complete disregard for the truth and will sell out their voters for a dime. Honestly, with these two parties, it’s basically choosing who is the least likely to embarrass themselves on the world stage and actually function as a leader ( Which Biden and Trump certainly are incapable of ).

    I don’t think this is a big deal. It’s simple. Look at these journalist and lawyers. Some wear a mask amd some don’t. Hypocrites!

  8. people wearing face masks, something must haved changed

    • Yeah all for looks on the Republican side they really don’t want to wear them but they know that people will be screaming about it if they don’t and they shouldn’t be holding this anyway in a room full of people in two of them that are there are infected with the Coronavirus!!!

    • Senators are playing a game of hippocrates

  9. Don’t let the Republicans BS you we must keep the focus on the Affordable Care Act and how many people it will affect, don’t let up because the truth is the Republicans don’t have anything else to talk about, all they’re trying to do is take our eyes off of the pandemic and the pandemic is part of the Affordable Care Act!!!

    If “the people” were given the wonderful health package that Congress gets & they were given the choice we have, they might finally do something!

    • Who is going to give the people the same wonderful health care package? Nobody. Republicans dont even want ordinary people to have the flawed but very useful ACA coverage. The goal is to leave ordinary people prey to avaricious insurance companies and big pharma. Who is getting kickbacks? Senators?
      To hang on to their ACA coverage, thousands or millions of people need to take grassroots action to make senators vote against this woman who is basically Trump’s stooge. Not too late.

      @Fortescue Actually, I hope we join the rest of the “civilized world” where everybody is covered by universal healthcare. I’ve traveled to many countries around the World, and when I tell them what kind of Healthcare system we currently have, they can’t believe we allow such an “antediluvian” system.

    • IF the queen had balls she’d be king…….or Bruce Jenner

  11. “I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination.”

    • It made sense in 2016 b/c ‘We the People’ elected a Republican Senate to block Obama from making any more decisions. That is not the case now, the American people spoke by electing a Republican Senate and President. Get It?
      You only have your own arrogance to blame. You were warned not to reduce the vote in the Senate in 2013 to a simple majority but you went and did it anyway and look at you now. Democrats: Always get what they want, never want what they get.

  12. “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.” — Mitch McConnell (2016)

    • The voice is the elected senate. Elected to represent the people. Get it? So you agree with mitch?

    • @Gary Quarty Twisting to fit.

    • Find Lindsay Graham’s whole rigamarole that he confirmed back then, for a huge laugh at how much one can trust him and his word…

    • After Kavanaugh – all bets are off.

    • Listen, let me put it into basic terms for you.

      Obama was Democrat. Senate was Republican. Republican and Democrat didn’t like each other, so they didn’t get Obama’s appointee in. But Trump is Republican. And the Senate is Republic. Republican agree with each other. So they go to confirm.

      That basic enough for ya, eh?

    The ACA was awarded to Trump at Walter Reed though.

  15. This nominee would not be where she is today without the efforts of the Justice she is replacing. Without RBG – there would be no women on the Supreme Court, in Congress or in the Senate or running as the VP. She stands on the shoulders of a women who was small in physical stature but far greater in character and fierceness in the belief in the rights of all citizens under the law regardless of race, gender, orientation and who they love.

  16. WHY ON EARTH do the Republicans not want people to have healthcare? Why?

  17. Recon old Spanky has grabbed a handful of that yet to see if she qualifies? HAHAHA!!

    Sillys don’t want to give God’s humanity Basic health care ..they live in the deceitfulness’ of sin in there flesh ..Satan personified as sin in their flesh of sin

  19. It’s time for public health care like the developed world.

    Doesn’t Amy Coney Barrett realize, she’s making a deal with the devil? This is a woman who hates women.
