Pres. Biden Should Forcefully Support Ending The Filibuster & Expanding SCOTUS – Rep. Ocasio-Cortez


That was a really good history lesson.

Some things are just worth fighting for, especially when one branch of government, exercises such an out of step over-reach. In one court decision after another.

Just the threats of expanding the court and enacting a “talking filibuster,” has been enough to pare back such abuses of power in the past. 

Why should today be any different? 

The bipartisanship that so many in power are trying to protect — well, that “ship has sailed” — likely not to return again, anytime soon.

Dems need to take a stand and fight, for what the majority of the American people want — otherwise what’s the point?  Mitch McConnell is not going to get all reasonable anytime soon, no matter how much deference he is shown, by those hood-winked filibuster-supporters. 

That ship has sailed too.  Time to launch some new missions.   Long past time.

WASHINGTON, DC - JANUARY 11: Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Joe Manchin (D-WV) questions witnesses during a hearing about hydropower in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill on January 11, 2022 in Washington, DC. The committee heard testimony from government officials and industry representatives about maintaining existing hydropower capacity, expanding hydropower at non-powered dams and increasing pumped storage hydropower.

We need at least 52 Democratic Senators too, unless Manchin suddenly remembers that he once DID support a return to a “talking filibuster.”
