Biden indicates he won’t support abolishing the filibuster

A White House spokeswoman said Sunday President Biden won’t support abolishing the filibuster — a cherished leftist project — even though not a single Republican Senator supported his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus package.

Kate Bedingfield, White House communications director, stated the president “wants to work with Republicans, to work with independents. He believes that, you know, we are stronger when we build a broad coalition of support.” The comments came during her interview on CNN’s “State of the Nation.” She added,

We also got it done with the support of 75 percent of the American people, including over 50 percent of Republicans. So we were able to pass this legislation with massive bipartisan support across the country.

Several Democrats have argued for an end to the filibuster, a change that would allow the Senate to pass legislation with 50 votes instead of a 60-vote super-majority. Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell has opposed the effort.

Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, however, claimed ending the filibuster would stop any opportunity for bipartisan efforts.

“The Senate is the most unique body of government in the world. … It’s deliberate. It’s basically designed … to make sure the minority has input. That’s exactly our Founding Fathers. And now if you want to make it a little bit more painful, make them stand there and talk, I’m willing to look at any way we can.”

Democrats currently hold power with the 50-50 split in the Senate. Vice President Kamala Harris holds the power to issue a tie-breaking vote in deadlocked efforts.

The Hill noted last week, “Liberal Democrats are growing more and more worried that the Senate will serve as a legislative graveyard for President Biden’s agenda unless he and other centrists rally behind doing away with the filibuster.”

The need for both parties to continue negotiations remain strong. This is what the nation’s founders intended, and serves as an important aspect of American government today.

Outstanding! Looks like there is a glimmer of common sense in Washington.

I disagree. The glimmer you sense is nothing but hidden atrocities. Democrats have no interest in the country, merely interested in destroying the average citizen in the nation.

This 1.9 trillion $$ Bill really does nothing for the American people. In the long run it would hurt us more then it will help us. GOD, I really wish Trump was back.

What she said 400 governors were supporting this, where are there 400 governors in the United States? And they had support of 75% of the people? Biden approval rating 55% negative. CNN is a propaganda pusher.

Amen to that! How in God’s name could their be 400 Governors in this country, someone needs to be taught some geography or what a Governor actually is! And they have fudged numbers so much they have no idea what the actual numbers are anymore. And the certainly have no idea what it will cost the citizens in taxes!

The bill shouldn’t have ANYTHING in it besides Covid related issues. Why should other countries benefit from this bill that our great, great, great grand children will still be paying back? Why should the government let in millions of illegals while there are millions of people here legally in our country or born into our country that have lost their jobs and waiting to go back to work…why, because they will vote democrat in the next election. Us Americans will be paying for them to live in better places than our Seniors, Vets etc, they will get paid free medical, free dental and food stamps. None of these will encourage them to go out and get a job because everything is free…that is they won’t REPORT their earnings. They work under the table, they make more money than us AMERICANS because they aren’t paying TAXES!!! By the way, I am American Indian, Hispanic

Cheryl, That’s where you are wrong, These illegals are not coming in to be citizens! Only the Children too bring in their illegal parents and get everything free! The parents want to come in have the gov. pay for housing, medical, foodstamps and welfare while at the same time they are out working taking American jobs under the table and sending those monies they make back to their home countries where there family lives in the lap of luxury at their home country if average person makes $5.00 a day in their home, think how well they will live if they remit $300 a week to their home country? their cost of living in home country is 1/10th or less then ours. They do not want citizenship in the USA, Just the kids for reentering our country!

Don’t you think somethings wrong when for the 1st time ever the National Guard has been ordered into DC to protect Congress – could this be because the present administration is not legitimately elected to the office they are holding

I really doubt it, but maybe he realizes how destructive his policies are to the USA and he wants the Republicans to stop him. He can blame it on them and he won’t look quite as evil as he really is.

If Biden doesn’t want to do away with the filibuster, GREAT! That would give the conservatives a little something to fight with. That is, if that bunch of pantywaist RINOs who talk big and do nothing will use it. Mitch McConnell was asked to declare a nuclear option four years ago but refused. If he’d done as asked, there’s a good chance Donald Trump might be president now and we’d have the majority in both houses.

Can’t get enthusiastic about Pinnochio Joe’s desire to maintain the filibuster when everyone knows HE’S not making the decisions and is subject to forced persuasion depending on what’s at stake. Several shadow operatives HOLD & PULL his strings.

Slow Joe Biden has had three (3) brain operations…that’s a fact!! It’s obvious that Slow Joe Biden has mental issues. Each and every time he makes a speech he struggles cognitively. If Slow Joe remains in office for four years the devastation he and his band of morons will cause to our country will be devastating. Joe must go and Karmala Too!!

SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

Jim, I guess I’m one of the few that agree with you wholeheartedly !!! I’d rather go up against a blowhard than a quite person anytime. The silent majority has been quite to long and what do they now have ??? It’s time the stepping stones get stepped on – and hard !!! My calls have been responded to and hopefully they do what they say – but, they’re politicians.

I dont know about anyone else but I am damn tired of them sitting around with their heads up their butt and not stopping this madness. There is more than enough evidence to put them all away and save our country. Send the Mexicans but to Mexico. Catch them and deport then finish the wall. All we get is fake reports and keep hearing OH ITS HAPPENING, ITS STARTED. WHERE?
STEP UP AND TAKE CARE IF IT. ALSO TAKE THE DAMN FENCE DOWN AND SEND THE TROOPS HOME. WE SHOULDNT HAVE TO PAY TO PROTECT THE CRIMINALS.
