    1. **I’M PROUD THAT I CAN’T PAINT FOR REVEREND WARNOCK!!!! HE’S WELL-SPOKEN,,, AND HE IS NOW A GREAT SENATOR!!!! THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO VOTED!!!! AND THANK YOU STACEY ABRAMS!!!! YOU SAVED OUR DEMOCRACY!!!**

    2. I’ve got to edit my comments,, before pressing send… I MEANT,,, I CAMPAIGNED,,, FOR WARNOCK…**

  1. Why don’t they explain what they hope will be in federal laws that will stop the republican agenda? For example, how will it stop gerrymandering and number of poll locations?

    1. Exactly the congress only works 191 days of the year the rest is paid vacation they need to do their job without complaining it a privilege to work for we the people not a right

    2. @Kennedy Suggs; They hamper old and young, besides where do they have all this time and money to ‘fix’ things that are NOT broken?

    3. @Kennedy Suggs removing polling places, drop boxes, methods of voting, voting hours, putting control over counting purely into Republican hands.. it’s a long list.

  2. Heartening to see some young, progressive Dems prepared to make a fight, and Ms Williams spoke well, too. Hope we see more of these people in a follow up.

    1. @Guy North Filibuster was not created to block the Black vote that’s just not true. It actually carries from the legal structure of Rome to our current system and was to make sure a slight majority like we have now couldn’t easily undermine a slight minority with partisan agenda like is currently being pushed. Not sure were you are getting that fake 70 percent number from either when the current president has a 46 percent approval rating currently even with bias polling and only 22-30 percent of the population thinks we are moving in the right direction. As inflation carries and the current admins failures become more public that will change to. MSM can only carry the lie for so long before the real world application starts to show. You need to be realistic. Joe Biden has been a lying corrupt failure for 47 years and nothing has changed.

    2. They don’t have to get rid of the filibuster, just an amendment. Republicans did it to get the taxes cut for rich people under Trump.

    3. @Sheryl Strack Again not true. The average America family gained $4000 per household under the tax revisions. So far in Biden’s first 7 months the average American family has lost $5000 and that’s with the child tax credit increase. You see inflation in a tax without representation against all of us. If what you were saying was true all of the biggest globalist corporations would have endorsed Trump not Biden

    4. @Mike Hall More Americans are out of poverty under Bidens Admin guess you missed that. Trump is a fascist wanna be dictator.

    5. @News Troll Please show me the fake link where you got that information. Anyone who can do basic math knows that’s BS.

    1. **IT’S TIME FOR DECENT PEOPLE,,,, TO ABANDON THE REPUBLICAN PARTY…. COME AND JOIN US,,,,, WE WELCOME YOU!!!!!! HELP US FIGHT AGAINST VOTER SUPPRESSION!!! WE NEED YOU…. AND YOUR VOICE..**

    1. @FactsarenotdirtyFwords The violence from coast to coast has been from groups like antifa and BLM. Where were you last summer . 60 people were shot in Chicago last weekend. Does your fuzzy logic blame right wingers for that. Everything is going to get worse until people realize this is a Marxist revolution. Read your history. The left is following the communist manifesto to the letter.

  3. joe manchin is just one more super rich tax dodger that all about gaining more unneeded wealth for himself. go by his actions not his words.

  4. The Supreme Court on a 6 -3 vote destroying Article 2 of the Voting Rights Act. Is an outrage. Congress needs to act.
    Stop federal funding of discrimination.

  5. The ONLY way to stop all this is to vote OUT ALL the republicans in local and key offices… This is the only way to stop these people from replacing people that don’t do what they want or continue their agenda… We are Screwed if not..

  6. The entire issue is Republican corruption. Morning Joe just call a spade, a spade. Get on with it. TIME is of the essence!

    1. **ALL THE GOOD AND DECENT PEOPLE IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY,,,,, NEED TO COME TO OUR SIDE,,, STOP THIS VOTER SUPPRESSION… AND FIGHT FOR OUR DEMOCRACY…. COME OVER,, AND BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY!!!! WE WELCOME YOU!!**

  7. We can’t pass voting rights with the filibuster intact. Manchin refuses to touch it. Therefor he does not support voting rights.

  8. MURDERER JOE, *” WHATCH GONNA DO TO GET THIS THING OVER THE FINISH LINE?”*
    ANSWER: *”WE GONNA “TALK” SOME MORE AND WASTE EVEN MORE TIME ACCOMPLISHING NADA”* ….LOLOL!!!!

  9. Fed government needs to pull funding from states enacting these anti democratic fascist racist voting obstruction laws

  10. Democracy across the globe is under threat. The very idea that that threat has emerged so powerfully in America, shows clearly why,
