Stack the supreme court with liberal justices
Reform the senate by adding new Blue State Senators until they have equal representation to the empty red states
End the filibuster
shove through medicare for all and UBI
And that's just for starters.

Seriously though, what do the Democrats have to lose by playing by the Republican rules? Some angry people on Fox News?

News flash: we already lost anyone watching that sh*t to the brainwashing, Sean Hannity and the Fat Swanson heir getting angry every night already happens. Every. Night. Hell maybe they'll have a brain aneurysm on air. Oh will Mitch get angry? F*ck you Mitch, you started it.

So seriously, who gives a crap if we start to piss off those assholes by doing what they have been doing?

Grow some farking balls, Chuck.

Ain't nothin gonna happen. The dems are too cowardly to increase the number of supreme court justices or grant statehood to any us territories. Or reapportion electoral votes or increase the number of representatives, or anything else. None of that will happen under Biden even if the senate gets flipped and he wins.

I truly hope that he does not become the Majority Leader should the Senate "change hands" .
I have never liked the man .
Having cast my vote for Liz in the primary, I will put her name forward for this post.

Leader Warren has a nice ring to it.
And it would drive a lot of people mad. But that is not why I want her there.

sahilkapur: SCHUMER held a call with Senate Democrats and opened with a moment of silence for RBG. And he said, per source on call: "Let me be clear: if Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans move forward with this, then nothing is off the table for next year. Nothing is off the table."


I'll believe it when I see it. First we need to win back the Senate. Then the Democrats need to grow a pair and actually do something with the power they've been handed. No more trying to work with the other side. They have proven time and time again that they are not acting in good faith. No offense Chuck, but you and Nancy don't exactly inspire fear.

I think people forget just how conservative the dems actually are in their current orientation. Especially Biden. They're moderate republicans of just about any other era. AOC is imo where the dems SHOULD be. IMO the Dems moving left is the only possible option, if the GOP is going to be defined as "more conservative than current dem position" the Dems HAVE to move left. I mean the GOP has basically gone full Hitler at this point. Let them occupy the center right position again, and in order to do that the dems have to go left.

This "When they go low we go high" crap is stupid AF and Michelle should have been pimp-slapped by Barry the moment she uttered it.

For decades, Fox News has pushed the propaganda that "libs" are docile pussies who can easily be intimidated & pushed around.

Some of our greatest Democratic Presidents, like FDR and JFK, got where they are not because they were pussies. They got there because they were ruthless asskickers. Candidates who run "nice" campaigns the Mike Dukakis & John Kerry way never win. "The Chicago Way" is how you get to the Oval Office.

Democratic voters don't want "nice". They want REVENGE!

It's been an incremental escalation for decades. This is the logical conclusion.

In 80 years, the scotus could be bigger than the Senate. Who knows where this goes. And you know what? Maybe it should be.

Nothing has been off the table for McConnell since Reagan was in. He's the most divisive politician since the guy who hit the other senator with his cane before the civil war.
They had a "full court press" strategy since at least back to Gingrich.

It's nice to hear there's a line somewhere. But the Right's theft of the Court after collaborating with our enemies abroad to steal an election should already be a "nothing is off the table" situation, regardless of what the GOP does with this vacancy.

Nothing's going to happen. Trump's going to get a 26 year old Federalist society imbecile in RGB's seat. Chuck Schumer will shrug and say "Ok" and then crow about how important it is to be civil and bipartisan as the Republicans take the House back in 2022. Mitch McConnell will get his way, nobody will challenge him, and Amy McGrath will lose to him. Elena Kagan will choke to death while eating a turkey sandwich while she's parking her car at the SCOTUS employee parking lot, simultaneously running over Sonia Sotomayer who will be talking on her phone on her way to work. Stephen Breyer will rush out of the building to see what all the fuss is about and Elena Kagan's car will then explode spontaneously next to him, giving Trump 3 more SCOTUS picks right before 2020 ends.

Once again a Democrat is going to have to clean up a Republican mess,  but this one is particularly nasty and potentially fatal.    I think Biden knows he has one chance to seal his legacy. A DOJ under him would do their job. Going scorched earth on every criminal trumpublican would make him an American hero,  especially if he is able to force healthcare, a living wage and dignity to grudging redcaps in the process.

Agreed, it's going to get screwed up.  My intention was:
Dems: hey guys, we're going to expand existing programs that benefit you and provide all Americans with the basics necessary to lead productive lives as every other prosperous nation does in the 21st century.
GOP: I want to live without a clean environment, a secure livelihood, access to basic healthcare, or a government that is accountable to its people.  Because that means I'm free.
