Since Mitch McConnell is no longer the Senate Majority leader, and there’s a 50-50 vote split in the Senate, Dem. Sen. Joe Manchin thinks he’s the “new Mitch McConnell,” acting as a swing vote for sale to the highest bidder in the Senate.
Democrats have majority control of the Senate despite the 50-50 tie, since VP Kamala Harris is the tie-breaking vote giving Democrats ultimate control of the Senate: BUTT! Manchin and Sinema OPPOSE Biden’s $2 trillion COVID relief package and Manchin and Sinema OPPOSE eliminating the godawful 60-vote filibuster rule in favor of a 51-vote simple majority rule.
I cannot express enough how much I abhor these two conservatives POSING AND EXISTING as Democrats. Manchin and Sinema must be primaried in their next election cycle – however, Manchin’s not up for re-election until 2025!!!!
The solution is for the Democrat Party to IMMEDIATELY make Washington D.C. a state so Democrats can add two Senators to increase Democrat control of the Senate – thereby effectively neutering Manchin and Sinema.
Further, Democrats need to immediately hold a simple majority vote to eliminate the 60-vote filibuster rule.
Mitch McConnell has ruled the Senate with an IRON FIST because of the damn 60-vote filibuster rule in place for years. Because of the 60-vote requirement for a bill to pass, the Senate has become a graveyard for bills Mitch McConnell doesn’t like. McConnell converted the Senate from a governing body that passes bills to a GOP judge-making machine.
I call Joe Manchin a FAUX DEMOCRAT because Manchin walks, talks, acts and votes like a conservative. It is an OLD TRICK for a conservative in a conservative state to run as a Democrat and hold Democrat office but CASH IN ON HIS CONGRESSIONAL OFFICE by squeezing favors/cash from both sides of the aisle.
If I were President I’d have the FBI set up camp in Joe Manchin’s world 24/7/365, because I believe Manchin receives favors/pork barrel projects/cash/benefits FROM DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS for betraying the Democrat Party.
Manchin and Sinema, like Mitch McConnell HATE TO GIVE MONEY OR BENEFITS to the American people, period. These kind of politicians are why young people despise politics and despise old white people in Congress.
Manchin, Sinema, McConnell, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama ALL LIE to the American people their entire careers: they tell you America never has enough money for individuals, but always enough money FOR WHAT THEY WANT.
That paradigm has never changed. These crooks tell you our government must operate on a balanced budget like a household budget, but the exact opposite is true. The wealthy and special interests enjoy trillions in fiat money but they make damn sure the American people does not benefit from fiat money.
Our Founding Fathers gave Congress a constitutional right to create currency WITHOUT, WITHOUT, WITHOUT borrowing money from ANYONE! especially not a “Federal Reserve.”
Our Congress can produce as much money as We The People want without adding a single penny to the national debt. Republicans borrow money from the Federal Reserve to give away trillions of our money to the wealthy one per cent. Republicans never complain about deficit spending UNTIL a Democrat is in the Oval Office.
If you ask any Congressperson how much money does our government have? They will NOT ANSWER the question and will quickly change the subject. Every President and Congress treat our fiat government AS IF it is their own personal cash cow – only to benefit themselves.
Until Senate Majority leader Chuck Schumer holds a simple majority vote to eliminate the 60-vote filibuster rule, Republicans will STILL CONTROL THE COMMITTEES. But how are Democrats going to reach even a 51-vote majority with the likes of Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema?
Congress is a garbage dump and we need to take out the trash.
We live in an era of hate, ignorance, greed and faux patriotism.
Americans still toil under the old Master-slave relationship.
