    Our two Democrats need to be educated about the Filibuster history and intent for having it in the first place. If the Republicans don’t want to debate on legislation issues such as the voting rights-of course we need to vote on voting rights, before the midterms.

    Democrats must fight against voter suppression and the autocracy planned by the Republicans.

    If the Republicans gain control of the mud term elections, Democrats will be crying to reinstate the filibuster as Republicans will be ramming through legislation without obstruction.

    The Dems want to eliminate the filibuster so they can advance their agenda. They are like a bully who cries when he doesn’t get his own way. The Dems filibustered over 100 times against Trump’s judicial nominations and yet I heard no complaints from the Republicans about it. Certainly no mentioning of doing away with it.

    Go ahead Schumer, 3 failed votes on the same topic deserves a 4th. You have nothing else to do to support the American people. By your own ineptitude, you are handing the Senate to those who know how to govern.

    Just read DeJoy has again reduced mail times considerably. Get rid of him or the next election will be impossible to expect good things from. He is continuing to make our Postal Services die so his conflicting businesses flourish. What is the holdup anyway? I hear he already bought off one of the women Biden appointed. YET NOTHING IS DONE! BEYOND DISGUSTING!

    The filibuster generally and specifically as it is has been modified in recent years, is unconstitutional. The filibuster was added as a talking filibuster after the Civil War to give the Confederate states a forum to raise their issues as part of re-building our government. It was never intended to be a tool for the minority to constantly overrule the majority - that is not how a democracy works. The framers specifically called out those particularly critical Senate votes where they felt that a super-majority vote was warranted. There was no provision made nor intended that any super-majority vote should be required for anything else; in particular general legislative processes. … … … Given that we now have a Supreme Court dominated by ‘originalists’ hung up on the specific wording of the Constitution and that there was no legislation passed to authorize the filibuster - I would presume, that if they are truly honorable principled Justices and not just political hacks, they would have to agree that the filibuster, as practiced today, is unconstitutional because it gives undue influence to the minority to overturn the will of the majority. This is not consistent with a functional democracy nor the ideals enshrined in the Constitution. … … … The original filibuster, where a single Senator had to hold the floor by talking could certainly tie things up. But, this practice was not a ‘one and done’ proposition that any Senator can initiate with just a phone call. … … … As practiced today, the filibuster does nothing to cause further debate or indeed, any debate at all. It allows Senators to simply block legislation that is popular with the electorate but not their political dark-money benefactors. There is absolutely no accountability to the people that elected them. They are given the means to support their benefactors secretly and with no accountability to the people they supposedly represent and who granted the Senators the privilege to represent them. … … … Certainly, the minority needs tools to prevent their views to be simply ignored by the majority. But, the minority should not have tools to simply disregard the will of the majority. To be clear, every Senator’s oath of office is to protect the Constitution and the Country, which is the all of us. They have no charter to just work for their base, just their constituents, their benefactors, their political party and especially not just for themselves. … … … I am tired of Manchin’s very ‘principled’ arguments ginned up to support the needs of his political donors. I would remind him that the value of his ‘principles’ is not measured by the amount of dark-money donated - in fact, it would seem that ‘principles’ would best be measured by how little dark-money one receives.

    Voting rights must be protected. Manchin and Sinema are defying the agenda they were elected to pursue. Why? Their reasons make absolutely no sense. I have never regretted more voting for Sinema. She is a selfish lying grifter that needs to be driven out of office.

    It's beyond time to eliminate or restructure the filibuster to get the Voting Rights Acts passed. You can't have free and fair elections until every 'citizen is assured his and her right to vote is protected and have that vote counted. Without free and fair elections, that's not a democracy, it is just an autocratic, fascist system, just like in Russia for one example. We must protect the right to vote and every vote is counted. Democracy is in peril as long as it's left to succumb to the authoritarian rule which certain individuals would love to have. It's all about greed and power and not about "We The People". So whatever it takes to fix this mess, so be it.

    So with Trump, you guys wanted to ignore the will of half of America and filibuster, but when it happens back at you under Biden, you just wanna take a vote or change the law until you get what you want. I used to think just marxism and communism should be made illegal, but anymore is clear to me the democratic party is the biggest threat to mankinds prosperity and future. It's like the party of idiocy.
