  1. McConnell needs to bugger off. We have been at his mercy for way too long. He is the MINORITY leader now. Time to sit back and stfu!

  2. What bipartisan, you dealing GOP Devil. Last 4 years Mitch kick DEM behind. Shame on you Durbin saying bipartisan.

  3. Democrats should FINALLY enact the will of the people! People across party lines want healthcare for all, reasonable gun control measures (no we don't want to take your guns away), they want tax reform in which the very wealthiest pay their fair share of taxes, police reform, immigration, energy and the environment. Getting money out of government is a big one for both Republican and Democratic voters–BUT KNOW THAT THE REPUBLICANSIN OFFICE DEFINITELY DON'T WANT REFORM ON THAT ACCOUNT. Don't believe me, read this: https://publicconsultation.org/defense-budget/major-report-shows-nearly-150-issues-on-which-majorities-of-republicans-democrats-agree/

    It states that there are "nearly 150 Issues on Which Majorities of Republicans & Democrats Agree". The people want to gtg things done. REPUBLICANS WANT TO KEEP THE STATUS QUO–ONE THAT WORKS ONLY FOR THEM. Republicans, vote these guys out, please. Let's get the country moving again. Don't listen to these Republicans' spin that is inteneded to firghten you and has no basis in fact. And be aware that there are forces hostile to the United States who are continuously working to keep us divided. They have their bots and trolls here on YouTube, in the comments and elsewhere, on Facebook, etc. Let's all be aware.

  4. Is there anyone here paying attention to the past 4 days? OMG America's destruction already underway without the Congress and all their problems……let's get back to representing the people like Trump did and knock off the bs rhetoric…your positions are going to be short lived next time we vote, if we do not see America First continuing!!!!!!!!

  5. Endless valuable hours wasted in the useless, non productive, filibuster, making the work of government so much slower.

  6. PLEASE Email your Congress wo/man to END THE FILIBUSTER in the Senate. This is an URGENT time for the Senate & for the World. Thankyou.

  7. Time for these Democrats to grow a pair. Republicans play dirty, Democrats play patty cake. After Trump and all these emboldened Repub. freshmen, complete with Qanon in their ranks and their militia pals….. this country is in for some nastiness. I hope Biden is tough enough………

  8. SINGLE PEOPLE WILL GET NO STIMULIS CHECK THANKS TO COWARDLY DEMOCRATS AND TRICKY MOSCOW MITCH AND PAIN IN THE BUT- PILOSI AND SMUCK SCHUMER

  9. If they try to pass a law that abolishes the filibuster, McConnell will just filibuster it…

  10. If you truly want any of that to happen. You got to expel McConnell and every single Republican enabler and co-conspirator that was a loyal supporter and cultist of the orange florida man.

  11. Chuck todd trying to PIN Durban down – Chuck Todd only tries to pin-down Democrats.
    Meet the Press is not something you actually WATCH anymore.. you just follow the highlights on twitter.
    Because of chuck todd's unbalanced journalism.

  12. Get rid of FILIBUSTER…!!!

  13. A globalistic socialist agenda driven adminstration, president biden and company, just sayin!!!🙂🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙂🤗

  14. just do away with filibuster already

  15. Wait a minute don't the Dems have half the senate?

  16. Filibuster is for Losers…🇺🇸✌🏾✌🏼🇺🇸

    It's a Republican tool🤢

  17. Filibusters are actually the senate taking on the powers of the House of Representatives.
    The senate is meant to rule on whether a law should pass, not whether the law should even be considered.

  18. Filibuster ban would help the future of America. This is away to become more bipartisan. Stop dragging your feet GOO. Biden needs his administration up and running. He has already been delayed by not having a complete Cabinet. Trump crippled the country with his demands that the election was stolen. Let’s not make the same mistake by crippling Biden’s administration further. Biden did not have the cooperation of the previous administration to make this administration competent to take action on day 1. Stop the BS GOP!

  19. Get rid of or go around the fillibuster! We pay for work to get done by Republicans & Democrats not wasted time & disagreements to waste our money. While we all know who is choosing to spend their time arguing & wasting our countries resources.

    The Republican's are so willing to let people die from Covid it's sickening. Their disrguard for life is apauling, they are so indifferant just like their leader Trump.

    While McConnell uses his manipulation of Schumer, to stop progress on legislation. Normally used to help our people & our country and enemy of our Nation and legaly treated by the police as such.

    We call the Trumpublicans treasonous, their own "deep state". Working to keep Congress & our public sick & dieing.

    For the purposes of the Trumpublican monitary Self Living Relief Fund. Ment to help Trump to continue building his para-military/ his own Military. While allowing him to live the rich life while lobbying foreign Dictators for support of his take over of America.

    Distroying our Democrocy & Constitution. With the Congress who stand up & fight out aren't his treasonous anti- Democratic snakes. Whose job is to sew the spread of fear, sew confusing information & introducing secrete dislegislation,

    As bills to seperate our society & Congressional Members with malus & for thought, intent.

    I put propose Congressional Members, who act to block any biaparticin work. Moving our battle against Covid 19 forward.

    Trumpublicans act as Russian sympathiser on the Covid 19 vaccine supply issues & PPE provisions for our health system. Hurting our people & their families, while thier country trust to become stronger. Such that the Russian society fails time & time again.

    These traitors need to be centured and bounced right out on Congress. Counter to the Ex-President's continuing tweet? The Lier, his crew is still working to undermined the great work of the Biden Administration.

    While the traitorious Republicans follow in his path. Let get rid of the Republican dead wait that wastes the American Tax payments for their own frivolous gains like stumping for office before elections time is even apprpreate.

    Congressional Members & we all know who they are, who abuse our Democratic system need to be ousted for deriliction of doing their daily jobs & duty.

    Wasting public funds by refusing to work with other parties across the aisle, to traffic jam the extreamly important legislation & bills to be introduced & passed is criminal. Stealing hard earned pay or fund gained by the American people, is not only dispicable but also part of Russia,s plan to take revenge on America but weakening our society while this influcance by other Dictatorial Fasist plot to enlist the Republican Party Members to intimidate, screw up & reak havoc upon our Congress & society with confusion & disbelief.

    The Republican Party is, under Trump's, Miller's & Meadow's along with other Anarchist seriously attacking out country from within.

    Even with Trump out of office, McConnell has just given Trump another 2 weeks to distroy the Congress through competitive, Republican behaviors, to block legislative progress & allowing increased Mcconnell's, Hawley's, QAnon's Rep Mrs. Green & Cruz's. careless missdirection
    & poison rederic. Now the Republican's have stopped all productive work from being accomplished.

    Trump needs to be jailed in solitary confinment. Keeping his poisonous intimidation, conspiracy plotting , self created lies, Obsessive Compulsive mania, his accute Narssium & dangerious use of people by his played out angry on & off Psychopathy, can be controlled and kept from influancing the American public more then his mental illnesses already have. Which will continue to grow inside the mental habits of his associate's & our society. Truely he is an extream danger as long as Trump is free to act with aninimity & desperation, causing him & his Republican students, to act out in shameless annamosity within wicked greediness.

    Boardering upon Self Agradizement, as future Athoritarian, Self Ruleing Kings, Ressan Tsarzs & Oligarchs.

    However, Americans don't need to play the fear card. They need to step out, step out & call out to the honest Athorities to stop the Trumpisum madness & Russian, Putin Revenge.

    Look to our past hero's & patriots, they don't let the bad system take power & rule.

    If we want to save out country be must play our reaction to their conspiracies.

    We don't need to believe their lies by remembering thier repressive lies spoken over & over again.

    They win the mental space for you to believe the Repulicans lies & rederic. When there is time to step out the enjoin Trumpublicans in debate & conversation.

    Pointing out the Democratic talking points,. Showing a willingness to enter a calm conversation to explore the similarities & different ideas of each legislation or bill.

    Bringing both positive & negative points to light, in a basic understanding.

    Having & leaving the discussion a bit smarter from being in their shoes. & hopefully you leave the positive discovery of the other side a bit smarter & understanding.

    In the end growing together as a well spoken, self ecpressive person, with an educated respect of both sides of the conversation.

    Making being a member in Democrocy a Social process & protice, where all sides can share a common viewpoint, & civil, debate as part of the beginning of humanity. With all member of society both posseing equal rights liberty & room to learn, to grow, towards freedom & equality of all people in our society.

  20. McConnell has PROVEN HE LIES — SCOTUS … Merrick Garland & Amy Barrett. END the filibuster now.

  21. Democrats MUST have control of committees NOW.

  22. Leaving the filibuster in place is giving minority leader McConnell VETO POWER — don't do that.

  23. McConnell was the reason you couldn't get anything done.

  24. Don’t waste your time on bipartisan republicans are party of No! Democrats please do your job people need help! Focus on the people! You have the
    house senator and the President what else did you need!

  25. DITCH TRICKY MOSCOW MITCH HE'S NOTHING BUT A CROOKED GREEDY COPORATE WAR MONGER LETS TALK ABOUT THE MEGA MILLIONS MCCONNELL GOT FROM RUSSIA AND BIG CORPERATE INTERESTS LIKE BIG PHARMA LETS TAKE A LOOK AT HIS TAXES

  26. The truth should repay the righteous and. The Covis deaths who knew it are following them to get back for him.

  27. we will never move forward again as long as the legal graft of the lobby is used by the rich to get a better deal for themselves. we live in a nation driven by outlandish greed . where the bottom now pay more in sales tax the the most rich pay in income tax. the abject poor living in tents on sidewalks day workers. are paying for the outlandish wealth of the billionaire the truly unneeded of any economic system based on rational thinking. yet the rich own a party . the g o p . and they are refusing others elected to serve the people to vote. what more is needed to show they are unworthy of any leadership then to refuse the vote. why do a fee people elect these crooks??

  28. Please JUST REMOVE the ENTIRE Republican Party from Congress! The Republicans who voted to impeach Donald J. Trump, stay, the rest are removed and charged with SEDITION.

  29. even our vote to let the least harmful win was ignored in 2016 . trump lost by nearly 3 million votes. the popular vote must be used now.

  30. get rid of the filibuster….outdated….just plain wrong…democrats it is time to get rid of this filibuster while you can, while you have control

  31. At no time was 'Shame on SS' said in this video.

  32. Wow. And the Democrats learned nothing from 2013. Literally, the following election the Republicans won the Senate and ending up doing their own "nuclear option" in 2017. If they're even considering doing this, they better hope that they keep the Senate in 2022, or any year after for that matter. Of course, that's impossible though.

    It's not even like the Democrats would remove the filibuster always. All this does is reveal which Democrats wish to gain even more power (which may prove important in the next election).

  33. who cares if trump is fired from a job he dose not have anymore . the voters have fired trump. let it become a civil task to charge and try him. all the democrats in office are doing is trying too look better then the job they have failed to do . we are a nation with bigger fish to fry .like how a person that gets almost 3 million fewer votes in the first place is allowed to take office in the first place. there are over 400,000 dead from a virus we have a cure for. get going on that screw going after that trump traitor and turn him over to the courts. if the elected want to do a thing that is of the most value get rid of the electoral college and us the popular vote in national elections from now on. put that on the floor of the congress and get that done. we do not want the electoral college to be used anymore. it has only given us fools and its wrong headed to use in any democracy. do not do a thing other then work on getting the virus under control and removing the electoral college . trump tried to use a coup to stay in power . we need to stay on the simple fact we the voters never picked him as our president in 2016 we need to use the popular vote. the biggest fish we have to fry .

  34. WHY IS IT THAT AMERICANS ARE FIGHTING COVID AND THE SUFFERING OF LOST JOB,FOOD,HOME AND FAMILY MEMBERS NOW WE HAVE TO FIGHT WITH ELECTION..LEFT RIGHT RED BLUE,THEN FIGHT WITH WHOS RIGHT FOR THE PRESIDENCY THEN TO BE IGNORED WHEN IT COMES TO EMERGENCY RELIEF WHERE BIDEN CAN JUST MOVE FORWARD BUT DECIDES TO BE NICE WHILE AMERICANS DIE AND SUFFER PLUS HOMES BEING FORECLOSED ON THEN WE SEE THAT BIDEN IS TO DO TRUMP TRIAL OVER HELPING THE PEOPLE FIRST….
    AFTER MANY AMERICANS VOTED ON CAMPAIGN HOPES OF BIDEN AND SENATE RUNOFF THEY HAVE CONTROL NOW BUT..WAS THAT A LIE TO GET IN OFFICE…IS BIDEN PRIORITIZING HIS AGENDA TO ALLOCATE MUCH NEEDED AMERICAN PEOPLE HELP..JUST DO IT NOW..YOUR PRESIDENT DO IT…DONT PULL A TRUMP ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE…ONCE YOUR DEAD WHAT GOOD IS RELIEF 3 MONTHS FROM NOW!

  35. Biden won by 7 MILLION Votes – it’s time for DEMOCRATS to toughen up, take the gloves off and fight Republicans BS with FIRE!!!

  36. Remember how McConnell treated Democrats past 6 years

  37. Biden Cheated. The voting machines were rigged and The numbers are the proof. Also They won't let anyone inspect the machines. If they had nothing to hide then they would let everyone inspect them. There were huge spikes of votes for biden in the middle of the night and they proved that it would be impossible without cheating, why is nobody protesting about this anymore? God must have a plan

  38. forget the elected and just vote out the greed and graft where ever it happens. the g o p will lose and the voters will win. people that are against voting are against the will of the people. the reason is pure greed . they will be using the word traditionalism over and over soon. its the new speak for your not getting a penny back the rich have stole post the Tipp O Neal tax cuts and the reagan lie all government is bad. but we can remove them via the vote. and if the democrats dont do as we wish we can remove them also. the people can in fact still force the elected to bend to our well. they serve at our pleasure. all we have to do is react to the pain they are causing us. and the power to never vote on anything is the tool that they use to cause that pain. just stop voting g o p. and everyone that can vote in every election . voting is democracy and its freedom. we can start replacing the ones that refuse to vote on things with the use of the filibuster anytime we vote them out. again these people elected serve at our pleasure . if they refuse to vote on things we must refuse to retain them in any up coming election. democracy is messy .but its also simple . you must vote to move forward. and the most votes must win. the founders set things up to move slow . not to stop. not voting is a sort of treason. and it has worked way better then that 6th of the month crazy show. the failed coup. again not allowing voting is the biggest treason to democracy there is. the elected g o p is refusing to do the people work by not allowing voting. if you are a citizen not offended by that you are not a citizen . you are a fool on the fast tract to a dictatorship. the elected where elected to vote on things. they are being cheated and in turn are cheating we the people.

  39. End the filibuster, push through good legislation and end the GOP. Once the America gets a good taste of what things can be like without the stench of conservatism making everyone choke, they would never win another election again.

  40. Actions on Impeachment if not there will be another insurrection

  41. Tired of being censored check out this YouTube channel nations in action🇺🇸

  42. These are not honorably people, like octopuses they grab hold on every opportunity they can reach lawfully and unlawfully, but they never give anything back, they are takers and will always be so……RBG I say no more!!!

  43. Schumer.senate.govcontact
    Tell chuck to tell mitch to know his place.
    Fillerbuster will give mitch power. Email chuck. Chuck is the MAJORITY now not mitch.

  44. No to a filibuster that’s ridiculous they would never give it to you if they had control of it Democrats should run away from the filibuster

  45. This is bs i know the GOPs aren't saying after a couple of days were is it" fk them & their racists kkk members!! After what this kkkugly45 WJ. hasn't done' which is zero!! The nerve to start pointing out fingers is beyond! Hipefly they'll be kickrd out in the capital investigations or be dethtone from their seats!! All 140+ of them anyone is better" then the zero obstructionist' crap they've been throwing at the 99% good riddance.. Trumps there hot m3ss can't blame anyone but them for it. #presBidenvpHarris21 are just trying to just fix our standing in the world & damages to main str. They got at least until 21- 24 to inact their campaign runs. #blkprgsv20 #blm21

  46. we can in fact trust the republicans . they are for sale to the highest bribe called a donation. they will use fascists with our any thought to the long term effect to the nation what so ever . and they will stop any voting that dose not profit the rich that have bought them. they are very dependable in that way.

  47. Bipartisanship is nice but not necessary didn’t the republicans show that fir the last 4 yrs
