If HR1 somehow miraculously passes

If Manchin and Sinema come around on the filibuster just for this “one-time” bill and some form of this bill is passed, is it safe to say State Republican Attorney Generals will sue and this will eventually end up at the SCOTUS

"Federal takeover of elections"

I hear Republicans using this talking point as if this is a bad thing….I think it’s would be good for the federal government to have uniform standards on federal elections…I think it’s dumb that states have different rules on how to elect federal office holders

Sinema

So a couple weeks ago she missed the vote on the Jan Commission, and this week she missed the lunch the VP Harris had with women Senators And she missed the Senate Democratic lunch with Texas Democratic lawmakers

Edit - didn’t know about the broken foot so I guess she has a legit excuse

Trump never got to host the G7 last year because of Covid

He didn’t get to use one of his a bed bug palaces to milk money….and now he isn’t there this year….you know this gets under his skin seeing Biden on the world stage…I am loving it!

#1 reason we need Manchin and it's good to have him

I have posted many threads criticizing Manchin….read this story today and remembered why we need him

“The first, but certainly not the last, not even close,” Schumer said ahead of the vote. “I greatly look forward to confirming what will be the first of many judicial appointments during the Biden administration.”

Red states are overriding their blue cities.

We always hear the line that big city elites look down upon the so called hard working, Jesus loving, America loving, rural areas….and that Democrats and liberals need to understand them and stop stereotyping them and treating them as ‘flyover country’, but in reality it’s the opposite, these people look down upon the diverse, tolerant, progressive big cities….always labeling them crime ridden, drug ridden, homeless ridden, etc…just look at the comments in this twitter thread

Manchin endorsed Susan Collins last year over a Democrat

That’s all you need to know about him. I know this site forbids negative talk against Democratic political figures, but he should be fair game seeing that he campaigned against a Democrat.

The Senate in 2001

Wow, just 20 years ago Democrats had both seats in West Va, South and North Dakota, Florida, and Louisiana...and also had one seat in Arkansas, South and North Carolina, Montana, Missouri, Nebraska, Indiana and Iowa.....that’s 26 seats that seem to be solidly Republican now....and even then the senate was 50/50.

Is the MSM going to cover Trump's speech today?

If so, then bad on them...the free press that they gave him was the reason he became president in the first place....I don’t even want them to report on the crazy things that he will say, he craves the attention (good or bad)....I don’t remember them giving coverage to Obama (except for his book tour), W, Clinton, or HW post presidency.
