Maxine Waters turns on moderate Dems for support of filibuster

Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is quite well-known for her vitriolic outbursts against her Republican targets, but the leftist lawmaker raised eyebrows on Sunday when she flipped out on members of her own party that aren’t falling in line.

Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) are a perpetual thorn in radical leftists’ sides for refusing to support abolishing the filibuster — a critical action Democrats need in order to force their agenda on the American people.

Maxine Waters has had enough of Machin and Sinema’s moderate stance on the issue, and blasted the lawmakers during an MSNBC interview with host Aaron Gilchrist Sunday.

According to the chronically race-bating Waters, Sinema and Manchin have been “clear” that they “don’t care about Blacks” or minorities and are intent on “denying” and “undermining” the voting rights of their minority constituents.

“They have sent the signal. They have been clear about it. They don’t care about minorities. They don’t care about Blacks,” Waters claimed. “They don’t care about people in their own districts who they’re going to deny their voting rights and undermine their voting rights,” Waters said.

Waters continued:

I must always be optimistic. But this is a very difficult time for Democrats. We have two Democrats, Manchin and Sinema, and they are holding up the Democratic agenda. They have decided that they are going to stick with support of the filibuster, and they don’t care whether or not they undermine the rights of minorities and Blacks in this country.

Ever since taking control of Congress in 2020, far-left lawmakers have been hell-bent on eliminating the filibuster, a Senate function which is intended to “prolong debate and delay or prevent a vote on a bill,” according to Senate rules.

The only way to break the filibuster is via cloture, which requires 60 of the upper chamber’s 100 members to approve — a major issue for a Democrat party that holds a very slim majority.

Eliminating the filibuster altogether would allow Democrat leaders to ram their agenda through with almost opposition and leave the GOP with little recourse — a notion that Waters is all too eager to turn into reality.
