    Truly WTF. She doesn’t have to run again until 2026, no clue what the hell she was thinking.

    What’s great about this is that we get an obvious villain. Hell, 8 of them even. (Boo Sinema! Boo Manchin! etc) And this way we get to pretend that we really, really tried. I mean, it’s not as if Schumer and the Biden administration have ANY leverage over their own members. God no. And furthermore, some unelected petty bureaucrat no one had ever even heard of until last week (parliamentarian, lol) said it can’t be voted on under budget reconciliation, so gosh. Our hands are, like, totally tied. That’s just how democracy works. But we really tried. Honest. No, really.… Read more »

    how have you never heard of the Parliamentarian by now? did you only start paying attention to politics when Trump got elected?

    fatherdougal

    Of course. Not at all an obscure bureaucrat most people have never heard of. How could I have forgotten the three-week unit on the parliamentarian during my high school civics classes?

    Do you actually have any shame, Tiki?

    Plenty, but how do you not know how laws are made? This is law making 101: the house and senate both have their own versions of a bill, then it goes to committee to have the differences hashed out (this is the process you’re saying you were unaware of), then the final bill is approved by both. FYI, it’s then sent to the PoTUS who then signs it into law if he wants to. If he doesn’t want to, he denies his signature (veto). If the Legislative branch has enough votes they can force it through without his approval. we… Read more »

    Cool. Cool. Since you know so much about this stuff, could you tell me what happened the last time the all-powerful parliamentarian, which is not at all merely an advisory position, tried to make it difficult for a 50-50 senate to pass shit that they wanted?

    (I almost used a Washington Post link, but then I remembered that you think they are “fake news”)

    what who wanted? I don’t think it’s any secret that the $15 dollar an hour thing was going to be a hard sell for the democrats.

    about the WP thing, you may have me confused with someone else about that, I subscribe to them.

    fatherdougal

    I tried to post a screenshot from the WP a few weeks ago and you refused to put it up calling the source “fake news”.

    tiki god

    your screenshooting skill likely sucked and didn’t even include the headline.

    tiki god

    lmao, it wasn’t even a headline, it was a twitter screenshot, learn to internet: plus.myconfinedspace.com/2021/02/23/plus-ca-change-plus-cest-la-meme-chose/

    also, your use of a foreign language got it caught up in the spam filters, so I had to remove it, then deny it all manually

    fatherdougal

    Conveniently ignoring the fact that you are calling a tweet from the official WaPo twitter account “fake news from a screenshot of a fake twitter account”. But please, do continue.

    tiki god

    yeah, who knew that they could use linkbait like everyone else, what a shame.

    it’s still fake news in the KBG sense, where it says one thing and you’re saying it says another. Kinda like “new pizza shop opens in florida” and you say “pedofiles are storing children in the 3rd basement” which doesn’t make sense at all because florida doesn’t generally have basements. or pedophiles storing kids in basements at pizza places, but you do you. go ahead thinking that these buildings are the same thing as what Trump’s administration was doing, it’ll serve you well.

    fatherdougal

    Kinda like “new pizza shop opens in florida” and you say “pedofiles are storing children in the 3rd basement”

    Or like when someone posts a screenshot of a tweet of a WaPo story FROM the WaPo twitter account and you call it “fake news from a screenshot of a fake twitter account”. Gotcha. Glad we could clear it all up.

    tiki god

    a screenshot of a tweet to a story that references an event, yes, that’s what I’m saying.

    why are you like this? why do you think a tweet is better than a link to the post?

    who did this to you?

    Jac

    Or it could be it was a mistake for Sanders and the Left to try to roll it into the stimulus bill and everyone, including Sanders himself, knew it. But hey, Sanders and the Left gets to say they tried, right?
