    Moving the goal posts when you lose is NOT reform. It is cheating to win. BTW: During the Civil War the Senate was NOT in session when they needed to fill a SCOTUS seat, so they HAD to wait until all Senators could arrive. No jets. More half truths from this Senator.
    Nancy wants to bailout pension funds in California, NY, etc. and call it COVID assistance. They allowed their cities to be burned and looted asking police to stand down… why should the rest of America pay for their mismanagement?

I contacted him and he told me what to do, he casted a love spell charm on him , and within 24 hours. my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back the next day with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day our Marriage was now stronger than how it used to be , All thanks to Dr Azaka. He is a real powerful spell caster who is always ready and willing to help you, if you are here and you need your Ex back or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact this powerful spell caster now.

    This is exactly why the DEMs have no power. They default to “bipartisan” but the GOP will never be as noble and this Senator is ignorant to believe they’ll change because they extend an olive branch. The GOP has no honor and will run wild with any opportunity. Learn to fight back.

    People like Manchin are the reason why Republicans are being enabled to do the things they do. If they break the rules, to save democracy, you break the rules too. Please primary him

    Bipartisan yes. The Democratic Party and the new progressive peoples party should craft it. The GOP is dead.

    Bipartisanship for someone on the left is code for let's negotiate a way to change an outcome they do not like.

    Decisions should be based on who is voted in. Let the will of the people decide. If the people don't like it they can vote for next government.

    The same "bipartisan support" that was required for impeachment.

    There can be no bipartisan solution when the Republicans are power hungry. they forced a Supreme court picks while election are going on. Lindsey Graham and other Republican complained and stopped President Obama's pick of Supreme Court by Senator Mitch McConnell saying that no Supreme Court pick will be done during an election year left on the elections Calendar.

    Democrats and Republicans remain deeply divided about how the U.S. Supreme Court should interpret the Constitution. I think Constitution should be used as it was originally written. It should not be interpreted what it means in current times. If it needs to be changed? It needs to be changed legally by a constitutional amendment.

    Joe Manchin is the posterboy for the status quo. He would rather sit and collect a check and not get anything done and put it under the veil of "bipartisanship" as opposed to wanting to get anything done.

    The only accurate and correct interpretation or understanding of any writing is the one intended by the author not the missinterpretation intentional or otherwise of those who read it 200 years later… This goes just as well for the Constitution and the amendments…

    The job of the Supreme court is to uphold the law and the Constitution as written. Any judge or politician who would even attempt to change the meaning of the Constitution or its amendments should not be in office.

    No. The GOP doesn’t get to disregard norms and precedent with impunity. Punish them!

    There was no rule breaking, if there was there would not have been a vote. … All I heard was give us what we want, or we burn everything that stood for 250 years down … These people do not learn, the nuclear option they implemented backfired and got them ACB, packing the court will backfire on them also, if they increase the size of the court so will the republicans when they are back in power.
