I hope the filibuster dies, what comes will come as a result, but to stymie any legislative progress because a senator threatens to filibuster is stupid.
    So can we go back to governors appointing state senators like back in the old days?

    As I figured, it's going nowhere.

    I'll give Pelosi credit if she sticks to it. One the rare times, but hopefully even she sees the insanity of such a move.

    Good news. Thanks for the update!

    She is a lot of things but politically inept it not one. She knows she is in trouble, deep trouble and even getting a vote on this would be the death knell for Dem control of the house, likely the Senate and POTUS for a good while. As it is, I see a bloodbath in the house, probably a significant flip in the Senate and Harris/Biden being a lame duck for 2 years with the house and senate overiding veto after veto and hopefully an impeachment or 2.

    Pelosi has already stated she is for court packing. She just sees the 2022 election cycle and knows this has no chance of passing.. so why would she want to bring this legislation to a vote if she has way too many members who are in susceptible districts and forcing them to vote yes on a bill that has zero chance to pass in the Senate?

    It is all about political capital and I doubt it'll advance, as much as I'd like to see it. My hope is Manchin loses office before 2022,that'd be a dream.

    Why would you like to see it... because it's a 6-3 conservative court, which was put in place by following the rule of law?

    Sounds like you are just a poor sport.

    My hope is Manchin loses office before 2022,that'd be a dream.
    So, you are hoping something so horrific happens to him that he has to at best, leave prior to his term expiring or worst, he dies in office in office.. given he isn't up for re-election until 2022.

    Awesome. That's some Keller level type shit right there.
