Politics and Government / Re: President Joe Biden's massive clean up effort

When the Senate Parliamentarian says that Republicans can't enact their policies (2001, Bush tax cuts): Trent Lott fires the Senate Parliamentarian and finds one who says that they can.

When the Senate Parliamentarian says that Democrats can't enact their policies (2021, minimum wage increase): Chuck Schumer does nothing, Joe Biden issues a toothless statement expressing his disagreement, and Kamala Harris says she won't override the Parliamentarian's advice.

If Democratic Senators wanted to increase the minimum wage, they could. That they aren't doing so means that enough of them don't want to, despite its high approval among the public.

Do you think the parliamentarian is wrong about procedure, or do you think she is right about procedure and should be ignored anyway?

Rep. Jim Jordan has a question for you all:

"Instead of spending 1.9 trillion dollars, why don't we:

-Go back to work
-Go back to school
-Go back to normal"

I'll bet none of you can answer that! It's not like there's a plague or something going on...

Instead of listening to Jim Jordan, how about we:

listen to the young athletes Jim Jordan let get molested.

Instead of listening to the young athletes Jim Jordan let get molested how about we:

Listen to the sound of Jim Jordan's screams as each young man gets him alone in a room with a baseball bat for five minutes?

I love how the "pro-life" party has exposed itself as the "pro-working-yourself-literally-to-death" party.

As opposed to letting Assad go - which happens to align PERFECTLY with the dictator cheerleader's goals.

Because the US has such a wonderful record when it comes to what happens in the aftermath of their toppling dictators.

Abandoning $2,000 cheques (and waffling on $1,400).

Thinking people care what the Senate Parliamentarian says about what can and can't be done under reconciliation.

Bombing Syria.

The Democrats are, once again, setting themselves up to lose in 2022--and this time they don't have a 9-seat buffer in the Senate to at least keep that body.

Listen to Madison and Hamilton, kill the filibuster, get a UBI, single-payer, minimum wage increase, and sweep the Republicans from power for a generation--or take corporate donor money and wonder why you lose.

I bet I know which will happen.

Should be noted that it was single digit temperatures for about two weeks straight here in Wisconsin. And yet no power outages. It's almost like the issue isn't the kind of power plants Texas has, but rather their failure to winterize them....

Yep, but the right wing talking points have gone out; it's all because of green energy!  The only solution is MORE FOSSIL FUELS!
