  1. Senate democrats , especially Manchin , better agree to agree . The ONLY reason republicans are still relevant , is bcuz they vote as one .

    1. As a rule, they decide the talking points and never break ranks, which is why despite warning against trump being nominated, they never said a word against him after he won the nomination, or all the things he did in office. They are prepared to prostitute their morals for political gain

  2. Manchin is a trojan, he will argue for beauracracy despite the democrat mandate for change.

  3. How about reminding us that Republicans had no trouble voting for a $3T tax deduction for the 1% Ann’s big corporations…

    1. I think we kind of own the Billionaire index here on the left don’t we?. Maybe except for Elon. We should thank them for the previous deductions.

    2. @J who are you kidding? We owe them nothing! The Republican hypothesis of thetrickle down has been disproved ever since Reagan… go ahead, look it up…

      U.S. “1%” Is More Republican, but Not More Conservative

      Nearly half of wealthiest Americans have postgraduate education

      BY LYDIA SAAD

      PRINCETON, NJ — Politically, the wealthiest 1% of Americans — those in households earning $500,000 or more annually — are somewhat to the right of the remaining 99%, but more in terms of party identification than self-professed ideology. One-third of the nation’s “1%” identify themselves as Republicans, 41% as independents, and 26% as Democrats. “

    3. @thechariotcard I’m with you dude.. Those broke republicans. I’m saying go look at the list of top billionaires (the Bloomberg index). Not many deplorable names on the list. They did us a favor.

    4. @J
      You’re deadass trying to pull Card Says Moops when your other comments are right there for anyone to read, huh? At least make another account if you’re going to pretend to be a liberal!

  4. She’s so right. It’s not just Democrats’ political futures on the line; it’s the survival of American democracy and people’s lives at stake. Deliver, Dems!!!

    1. @John Edward Kentucky is one of the poorest states & Moscow Mitch has vowed not to vote for the financial help. I cannot understand that. He helps himself but not his fellow Kentuckians. go figure.

    2. @Susan Ford And yet the miserable hillbillies KEEP voting for him… Maybe they ENJOY poverty and ignorance?

    3. @John Nemesh Absolutely. I also believe that Manchin and Sinema should be held accountable for their vote to confirm Bill Barr. With all these “new” reports about his malfeasance, should their votes be brought to light? I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but these 2 seem to be Republicon operatives and they should be called out for it. Hopefully, their opponents in their next elections will hammer these points home, HARD.

    1. **EVERYONE IN WEST VIRGINIA SHOULD BE TEXTING JOE MANCHIN,,, TELLING HIM TO GET ON YOUR SIDE,,, WE ALL NEED THIS HELP!!!! TELL HIM IT’S EITHER THAT OR WE VOTE HIM OUT!!!!

    2. KKKonservatives are all about conserving their wealth which is what they view as the purpose and function of our Constitution.

      Our representative republic was formed to protect the wealth of the wealthy. At the time, much of that wealth was slave wealth. Thus, we now have what the Republican Party has become. Our society is so malformed that we accept capitalism in its most ruthless form as being the physical manifestation of psychopathy. That is how powerful the conditioning is and we are all victims of this corporate psychopathy. Capitalism is when men exploit men whereas communism is just the opposite. We need something in between that provides progress for all Americans and not just the one percent.

      Our representative republic was formed to protect the income of the wealthy. The number one priority for rethugliKKKlans is to circumvent fair and just taxation of that income.

      Our society is so malformed that we accept capitalism in its most ruthless form as being the physical manifestation of psychopathy. That is how powerful the conditioning is and we are all victims of this corporate psychopathy. Capitalism is when men exploit men whereas communism is just the opposite. We need something in between that provides progress for all Americans and not just the one percent.

      We need democratic capitalism. ​Who could be against that.

  5. Now is the time to push these agendas thru…..Joe needs to take a sip of STF up and go with the flow on issues that will help average Americans!!

  6. We must NEVER forget:
    Trump paid $0 in federal taxes for the majority of the years reviewed and $750 during his first two years as president. At the same time, he paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes to foreign governments.
    And he received tens of millions of dollars from foreign sources.

    1. And the last stimulus gave millions of dollars to foreign countries and governments, and climate change. Heads up, money will not save the planet.

  7. I so admire Elizabeth Warren!
    I hope the best for her, personally and professionally. She has worked very, very hard to get where she is in life and she has always worked to better the lives of others. She’s a wonderful example of a strong woman of integrity!

    1. Really? She is so opportunistic. She is such a liar. We saw her true colors in the primary – is that the kind of person you admire?

    2. @Ange D Yes, she is! You must be thinking of someone else, because she is a champion for the people.

  8. Amazing that a system of power that affects actual lives and actual resources, decides things on opinionated argument instead of actual facts and figures

  9. Senator Warren is right as rain.
    We need to SOAK THE RICH!!!!!!!!!!!
    They’re the REAL traitors.

    1. These guys like Nike CEO $53m last year?!. Then they like to say how they donated to the poor. Well if they paid them accordingly, the poor would not need your donation. Would not need food stamps, welfare, etc. Let US take care of us, but pay us better dudes and dudettes.

    2. @Just Joan Indeed i heard he made a boat load of money & pays bugger all to his employees, plus neither pays federal taxes. I cannot fathom how a company can justice no contributing to the building & maintenance of their surroundings.

    3. GO ahead, soak them……who do you think they’re going to pass those tax hikes on to? You’re not real smart.

    4. @Giles Bowman Let them do it. Personally, I’m inured to high prices and high taxes.

  10. Thank the GODS for people like YOU Sen. Warren!!!! Intelligent and willing to help us!!!!

    1. Your insane… it will drive up the cost of everything ..for example i phone could cost 800$ more
