It's a great day when Schumer fails

49
IHeartMyDoggy 49 points ago +50 / -1

I still don’t understand why he did this. He knew it would fail. Add this to Biden’s disastrous press conference and it was a Hindenburg day.

He did it to spotlight Manchin and Sinema and pressure them for when they try it again.

42
JohnCocktoastin 42 points ago +42 / -0

Like this adds so much more pressure than the flight ambushes and bathroom sneak attacks Sinema has experienced along with the arm twisting of Manchin. This is retard level politics. Manchin is up for re-election in an otherwise red state. If he is undermined from his own side, a republican is being sent back in his place after November. Schumer is just making it easier to do that.

I've never understood why that faggot is majority leader anyways. There is nobody who is more unpleasant in the Senate that this idiot. Always glasses on the end of the nose talking down to everyone. No sense of humor. Almost like a fucking bot. Why would anyone rally around the guy? And always has been politically clueless. He makes Kamala Harris look pleasant and fun. That is a tall order...

He's a gangster, he doesn't have to care about likeability.

TheThreeSeashells 16 points ago +16 / -0

He doesn't have to care about likeability because he comes from a state where he could murder puppies on live TV and would still manage to win elections. Remember, he won his first political race by publicly promising to run all the blacks out of the neighborhood, then when elected actually tried to do it. (According to today's media, the "murdering puppies" thing would likely be more tolerable.)

Damn what happened to based Schumer.

TheThreeSeashells 1 point ago +1 / -0

Problem is his plan was so flawed (like all of his ideas) that it didn't work. The plan was to pass a law that deemed the low-income/minority buildings in a particularly crime-ridden area in his district uninhabitable and in need of a renovation. The blacks in those buildings would be "relocated" to another area of the city (far away of course) while the necessary renovations were completed.

Then once the renovations were completed, the apartments would be turned into co-ops or condos which the blacks surely would not be able to afford, so they wouldn't return. Presto! The "black problem" in the district would be solved.

Unfortunately for him (and the others involved in this scheme), the plan was created under the guise of actually helping blacks, so they were also given first right to move back in after the renovations were completed. As it turned out, that's exactly what they did. (Some simply stayed through the renovations.) Racists like Schumer and his ilk thought those that left would never be able to afford to come back or that they were lazy enough to simply stay wherever they were dumped but somehow most managed to figure it out and the plan failed.

As it turns out, the Left aren't even good at being racists, despite decades of dedicated practice.

Because they are tied and Kamala breaks the tie. So, this was the compromise. The fuckery won’t stop until November.

The good news is at some point these people have to break and start campaigning. That should quiet their efforts down.

JohnCocktoastin 5 points ago +5 / -0

I understand this part. I didn’t mean like “how does he get to be majority leader” from a numbers standpoint. I mean from a party standpoint. Like surely there is someone else more likeable, less bot-like, doesn’t talk down to everyone with glasses on the end of the nose? When Dick fuckin Durbin would be a monumental upgrade, you’re doing it wrong.

what makes them think they should have greater influence than the constituents that these senators represent? that's the problem we have. the senate is supposed to represent states. the house is supposed to represent people. we have allowed the federal govt to bastardize the entire system of govt.

Correct. Because you are from a state but have left it in your dust many decades ago doesn’t mean you get the right to use your celebrity status to pressure politicians representing said state. Stick to sports, jackasses.

Because they will never stop. If even ONCE the Democrats gain a Senate majority they will vote to remove the fillibuster. Then they will vote to enact these election fraud mandates.

They will never stop. They are evil. The GOP will fail. Because they compromise. It is inevitable.

preferredfault 4 points ago +4 / -0

They're trying to soften things up so that when they finally do decide to break the filibuster, they'll make it look "dire" enough to warrant it, like they have an excuse to do it, so that they can try to put the filibuster back in place after they've destroyed it, so that when Republicans try to disregard the filibuster when they're in power, the Democrats can cry "We only did it because we had to! The thing you want to use it on now isn't as important as our thing was!".

So basically, they want to make a filibuster rule they can exploit where it can only be broken when it's over something "super cereal!". That way they can break the filibuster rule and control/attack its future usage as it suits their agenda. They just aren't sure if they can get the scheme to work.

It's kind of like calling people racist to get them to stop talking about bad things other races do. The problem is, when calling someone a racist doesn't work anymore, it loses its power. They're afraid that they won't be able to unopen that pandora's box and that Republicans will just say "Fuck you, you bypassed the filibuster to get whatever you wanted, now it's my turn to do the same".

FireannDireach 2 points ago +2 / -0

Because it's better to fail with 48 than pull the bill and never have it voted on. Schumer needs to make people think he's trying.

It's all ego and political dog and pony shows. Always was. He needs to save face in the light of this failure, and now he has ammo to go after Manchin and Sinema.

Just kicking the can down the road as instructed. They need to time the spending bill with economic downturn (interest rate hike to stave inflation). Print some more money to further delay the inevitable so Republicans can share some of the blame. Their power depends on the uniparty.

I’m with you - I totally agree. I’m thankful for them today.

The outcome we got with this one was the less likely of the two. Based on history, I’d even go so far as to say it was UNlikely. I mean, Sinema & Manchin joining the GOP to sink the filibuster change?? Seriously? We don’t get breaks like this. When do we ever? Never! Except this time. What the hell’s going on? Loving it.

PapaPepe 59 points ago +59 / -0

They will never let it just "fail". They NEVER do. They will slice it up and slip it into a bunch of other bills and budgets. A third of it will get passed piecemeal this way then they'l also start having deep blue states pass the shit on their own.

Don't get complacent, this is only beginning.

Correct. As I stated, you pass a big spending bill to counter this. The stock market does enjoy the printing machine. The benefits just need to last long enough to delay the inevitable crash until "Republicans" take power again.

Look Manchin and Sinema are certainly not good people, but they've fought for Americans more lately than a lot of the GOP

Without Manchin specifically fighting against the needless spending, that gajillion dollar bill would have passed and inflation would be closer to 12% than 7%

I don't endorse them and wouldn't trust them with my life, but they deserve some recognition here. I still think they'd ruin the country but at least there are some things they are willing to stand up to

ModsAndCucksRuinedTD 24 points ago +28 / -4

Really this was all “uniparty” political theatre. Literally everyone knew this vote would fail, and that’s why they brought the vote.

  • McConnell gets to look tough, like he stopped this.

  • Schumer gets to look like he tried.

  • Progressives get to bitch and moan that it wasn’t their fault, it was the white supremacist senate.

  • Manchin and Sinema get the cop out they need to satisfy their constituents.

Think about what that means: They spent the last few months negotiating how to do nothing, so they could all go back to their bases and lie to them.

American Politics in a nutshell.

I think he is in hell. I don't think his current situation is something to admire or celebrate. Most presidents age 5 years for every one in office EXCEPT for Trump. Every waking moment of his life, he's being managed and manipulated. He gets paraded out like a show dog and then turned into a puppet where every second he's in public can result in a PR disaster. I also think he knows he's hated by a majority of the American people. He can't go anywhere and get a legit crowd. When he does, there's lines of pedes yelling FUCK JOE BIDEN!. Not a life I'd want even if you do occupy the most powerful office in the world.

You guys are looking at this all wrong. No one is murdering puppies, no one is going into hiding. You have seemed to have forgotten that the Dems play the long game waaaaaay better than we do. Yeah, the Filibuster went down yesterday but look how far they have moved the ball towards the goal line. The Dems have mastered the art/concept of 100 tiny bites will still get you a meal. Make no mistake, they are coming back. The next time, because of their efforts here their next push has them starting closer to their goal than yesterday. Yes, it's correct that The True Believers are all in their 70's and 80's and wanted to see the Glorious Revolution victorious while they are alive but there is a reason they have been indoctrinating kids for the last 50 years. For this very moment.....to ensure the Revolution continues even if they are dead and gone. If we take the Congress in the midterms and do not impeach Biden and then begin dismantling the Deep State, we ensure the defeat our Constitution within the next 25 to 50 years.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer characterized the resolution as “a modest one-time change” in the filibuster to pass the voting legislation.

We just want to change filibuster this one time so we can get what we want, then we won't change it again, or to be more precise we will never do it in favor of republicans.
