Leader Schumer seems to have a plan regarding the passage of the rules of organization.

When Rachel asked him if McConnel could fillibuster the rules he said his caucus is united in not giving up to McConnel all the way to the most conservative members of the caucus. When she pressed he smiled and said stay tuned. He seem really confident. Thats a good sign.

on edit : as of 924pm mcconnel yielded and agreed to the rules.

7. i am sure things are happening behind the scene.

I would not be surprised if we later learn that Biden had picked up the phone and done some arm twisting.

5. I'm confused.

We have at least 2 Dems who say they oppose getting rid of the filibuster. How else do they plan to stop McConnell and Republicans from obstructing?

9. senate rules are arcane. Schumer is probably planning to

use all at his disposal to tip the scales. For example negotiate within his caucus. Manchin wants coal subsidies ? Sure here it is..

6. I'm watching and I feel better

about the Dems not getting sand kicked in our faces again/still by the GOP. 20 years of GOP BS is 20 years too much! Treat them as they have treated us, and go back to the days of Newt.

8. I still have faith in Schumer, but I worry.

Once these asshole Republicans dig in, they don't budge.
