Rep. Clyburn rips Manchin and Sinema over filibuster and voting rights bill

From his interview with Politico:

"This whole thing that the filibuster cannot be changed, that's almost like saying to me Brown vs. Board of Education was wrongly decided. That's what you're saying?" Clyburn said in a Politico interview. "We've got 50 Democrats, Warnock and Ossoff are two. Since when did Sinema and Manchin get to be more important than Ossoff and Warnock?" said Clyburn. "They all got us to 50. So this whole notion that we've got to do what Manchin says—Warnock is up in two years for reelection."


Clyburn knows how critical the voting rights bill is, that it’s not some “puffed up” piece of political strategy, that it is essential to protect Dems majorities and to protect democracy itself.

Clyburn knows it
Schiff knows it
Schumer knows it
Klobuchar knows it
Durbin knows it
The entire progressive caucus knows it.
Obama knows it

Do you know how critical passage of HR1/SB1 is? That without passing it, which requires at the very least the modification of the filibuster so it can pass with 50 votes, Dems will lose their majorities, and the WH in 2024, for a decade or longer?

If you do know how critical the voting rights bill is, and how devastating the consequences of not passing it will be, smash the rec button (since I can’t create polls).

2. Republicons have rigged the system so much

in the last few decades, if they get everything back again, we'll never get rid of them.

Not just election rigging and dirty tricks, but controlling the media, dark money, rightwing judges, all of it.

They won't give it up easily.

Since when did Sinema and Manchin get to be more important than Ossoff and Warnock?" said Clyburn.


Damn Straight.

Whole article is worth a read, great detail on Biden’s evolution on the filibuster too.

And I do believe it’s what turtle did to pass the scotus judges

10. Stop dancing around the issue and ask them point blank

if they like being in the majority. The rest of the conversation flows from there.

21. Perhaps even more to the point, ask them if they like being Senators.

Their seats would wind up being just as vulnerable.

14. If Manchin, Sinema, or any other Democrat doesn't support

the Voting Rights Act they should have to go on the record voting against it. Hiding behind the filibuster is cowardly.

30. One way to put them on notice

Start being very visible with the Dems organizing a movement to primary them. Maybe THAT will F'ing get them in line.
Their Self Aggrandizing ego maniacal 15 minutes of so called fame must be stomped in it's track........

It is bad enough that the Dems have to fight both the RepubliCON party AND Trump every minute of every day, but to have to fight some rouge Dems continually is pure BS......

It is obvious that Manchin aspires to be the McConnell of the Democrats..........

His voters should be dumping un-ending phone calls, letters and emails on his office and home doorstep.........It is a little hard to ignore thousands and thousands of first class letters being delivered daily to your home and office.

Same with Sinema..................

15. If they lose, that will be the end of the party and democracy. Republicans new voter suppression

in multiple states will guarantee it.

31. I have a feeling we could be on the upswing for a decade

Or two if President Biden and the Democrats do what they say and get it done.

Mcturtle is frightened, because if the Democrats cease the power they've been elected to do, almost 80% agrees with their policies, it's just proving they will do it.

Breathe easy for the next four years, but talk to everyone about the issues. Magnify the Democratic props.

19. This issue is just the latest - however it moves the needle on "egregious" -

it's an example of how American democracy is teetering on a precipice as steep and narrow as any time since the Civil War. Watergate, the McCarthy hearings, any other point in US history you care to name - nope. Not any of those were as fraught as the present.

22. You are exactly right!

How can people stand by and watch a great democratic experiment in danger of being rinsed down the lab sink. The great irony is that its greatest danger comes from people who hate science.

24. I would take...

National no-excuse mail-in voting, Election Day=National Holiday and National 2 weeks early voting with adequate drop boxes. HR 1 covers A LOT MORE than that. Maybe we could pare it down slightly?

Will enough GOP fall out of favor with voters to make a difference?
