I bet if Biden and Schumer accept the Republican counter proposal

And puts those changes into the infrastructure bill, those same Republicans would still vote No...

Smaller population states are too powerful in the senate

The Senate already gives more power to smaller states like Wyoming by giving them the same amount of Senators than big states like California....having the filibuster increases their power even more...it’s like a double whammy

When are Democrats going to learn

You can’t negotiate and compromise with Republicans because they are doing it in bad faith. This bipartisan Capitol Attack commission is another example....you give them what they wanted and they still vote no...

This tweet is so true

Not the Chapman tweet, but the reply....Republicans play so dirty and usually win because of it, and they know Democrats won’t stoop to their level.

The Republican villain

Other than Trump and Bush...the Democrats never have a Republican goto villain. Someone we tie every Republican and candidate to....and there are plenty of them out there (green, Gaetz, etc)....that’s one thing that the Republicans do, they find them a Democratic “villain” (usually a POC and/or woman) and they tie every Democrat to that person....you can be running for dog catcher as a Democrat in rural Iowa and they would run negative commercials of you and showing AOC, during the debate they would mention AOC a dozen times...an example actually happened last year here where I live in Texas (the chip roy/Wendy Williams race and the Gonzales/Ortiz-Jones race)....you would have thought that Pelosi. AOC and the squad members were on the ballot instead of Jones and Williams.

Edit - in no way do I think AOC is a villain...just pointing out how Republicans turn her into the boogeyman

Their voters don't care because they are their voters

I see so many stories about GOP congressmen and women doing or saying terrible things, but unfortunately they are a microcosm of the people they represent and areas they are from.

Couldn't Stefanik actually lose in 2022

NY lost a district. Her district could either go away completely or go from its current make up of R+8 to around R+2 or even.

Edit - just looked at the NY congressional district map....I think if they combine her district (District 21, R+8) and District 20, D+7 (I actually think it’s more than D+7)....that creates an even district and she loses.

Criticism of Israel seems off limits

Why does it feel like any criticism of Israel seems off limits here in the U.S. and immediately met with either “you are anti-Semitic” or “you support terrorists”.....every politician no matter right or left (except for a few) seems to have unwavering support for Israel and act like it can do no wrong and are always the victims...and it seems like Israel knows that and plays off of that treatment to do whatever they want

Bothsideserism as its finest

It was as if House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy hadn’t just ousted a top Republican for accepting President Biden’s win. As if Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell had not recently declared his “100 percent” focus on stopping Biden. As if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had never accused GOP lawmakers of a “reckless . . . assault on the Constitution.”

Is this jobs report the jolt that Republicans needed?

One thing that I noticed about Biden so far that has been different from Obama or Clinton is that the Republicans (with the help from the MSM) haven’t been able to gain traction with a fake outrage about the economy or grow an astroturf movement of ‘concerned’ and ‘worried’ everyday American citizens (i.e the Tea Party) about the direction of the country...pretty sure their talking points for the next month will be about this jobs report and socialist’s policy not working,
