    1. @Lex Ruptor
      He is probably referring back to the 1960s, when the Southern Democrats used it to block voting rights bills.

    2. @Jock Young The Southern Democrats of the 1960’s were just like Manchurian and SinEnima… nothing more.

    3. @Jock Young

      No because they are trying to vote on bills that go against our constitution. No means no.

  1. That’s commonly known as paralysis thru analysis. Be a rebel, take a chance, end it and see how it works out.

  2. The difference between keeping the filibuster and ending the filibuster is keeping our democracy or ending power of the majority for Republicans for decades.

  3. I like Hickenlooper. I’d like to hear ways to modify the filibuster. Temporary, issue specific, suspension might also be possible.

  4. +34 million infected!!

    +600k killed!!

    so sinema can take her moderation and shove it, period!!

  5. What will republicans do if they get the house back and no filibuster? Cross that bridge when you come to it. Democrats are on offense right now, be on offense, SCORE for Christ sake. Stop playing defense all the time.

    1. What do you want them to do? They control the Senate through a VP. They don’t have a general consensus amongst their members, so not much is going to get done anyways.

  6. Or you all could stop worrying about the 535 of you, and ask what’s best for the 330,000,000 of us and just do that, instead of what you are eventually going to do anyway. 🙂 Enjoy our stuff.

  7. If they want a filibuster, then they need to stand there and debate, not just make bills disappear into the ether by declaration.

  8. Nice video, I make huge profits on my investments since I started trading with David Wayne, his trading strategies are top notch.

    1. I invest with Mr David too, he charges 20% commission on profit made after every trading session which is fair compared to the effort he put in to make profits.

    2. As first time investor I started trading with David Wayne with just a thousand bucks. My portfolio is worth much more now within just weeks of trading with him.

    3. With the consistent weekly profits I get investing with David, there’s no doubt he is the most reliable in the market.

  9. 4 Years of trump chaos and hate… and back to do nothing McConnell. We The People can vote…we can march…we can petition… AND YET OUR VOICES ARE COMPLETELY MOCKED, demonized, and ignored.

    Democracy in America is MEANINGLESS! Dark money bribes rule. This evil GOP GAME IS A FARCE.

  10. Shout out to George Floyd on thirteen months of sobriety. It took some tough love but he did it. Say his name liberals

    1. That is a TROLL that has cloned this account and others . Please FLAG AND REPORT all comments that you see like that as it is NOT from the people that it is posted under. He is posing as “Me” and CSheild and Insignificant360 and maybe others .

  11. WHERE WERE YOU GUYS TRYING TO STOP THE FILIBUSTER WHEN YOU USED 314 TIMES IN 4 YEARS THE ENTIRE TIME TRUMP WAS IN OFFICE, *HUH?* ….

  12. At least the filibuster gives Democrats something to talk about, even if that talk is an endless moan.

  13. Shout out to George Floyd on thirteen months of sobriety. It took some tough love but he did it. Say his name liberals

    1. That is a TROLL that has cloned this account and others . Please FLAG AND REPORT all comments that you see like that as it is NOT from the people that it is posted under. He is posing as “Me” and CSheild and Insignificant360 and maybe others .

  14. IF Biden had won they wouldn’t be trying to federalize voting and ending the filibuster. This proves they know he didnt.

  15. If Democrats can’t rise to the occasion to pass their agenda they might as well switch to the Republican party. Because Republicans will basically run the show through Manchin and Sinema.

  16. I promise you that democrats will greatly regret getting rid of the filibuster some day. But please go ahead and create your own demise

  17. filibuster.. legalized legislator welfare recipients blocking rights & progress. stuff the filibuster
