Proposal: we only link to NyPissed/FauxNews/etc when they post shiat unrelated to politics. Let's operant-condition them into being all cats.

To be fair, given their behavior over the past twelve years, I can understand why the Republicans would be confused by the idea of enacting legislation.

"Legislation?  Is that, like, a decree?"

Only if they say henceforth.

Well they couldn't "think they're republicans" because they are actually attempting to lead and govern and legislate.

Right wingers just want to demagogue and play performative leadership while displaying their lack of any human virtues.

Republicans wouldnt cave to the parliamentarian.

Lol. Every progressive I know believes this bill doesn't go anywhere near far enough. Because it doesn't.

I can't wait to hear yet again about how Democrats are doing jack sh*t while simultaneously complaining about how they're doing too much.

/from "progressives" with likely Russian and/or GOP connections, too
//don't get me started on the tan suit arugula nonsense

JFC I made it about 6 sentences. That was so stupid it makes me start giggling when I think this is someone's final draft. Like they actually sat down and expended energy and time writing that. A masturbatory nap session would have been more intellectual.

Once again, meaning consensus is defined as giving the Republicans everything they want.

Man. It's amazing how fiscally responsible republicans get when they stop being the sole beneficiaries of government spending.

Democrats better have a high priority on passing a voting rights act that keeps Republicans from undermining democracy.

If they don't then it won't matter what else they pass.

Opinions are like nudity... they are natural and everyone has theirs... but just like nudity, it's not considered socially acceptable to shove yours in other people's faces unless asked to.
Now, consider republican nudity, and see just how nasty things really are.

Simply put, go ahead and talk your never ending stream of bullschitt. No one else cares, listens, and you have no power or say.

tl;dr
sit down and shut up while progress is being made.

F**k 'em if they can't take a joke.

"Although polls told us that a majority of Americans supported Obama's efforts, not a single House Republican voted for the 2009 stimulus bill. By the next year, a majority had turned against the plan, and the GOP picked up a historic 63 seats, the biggest victory by a party in the midterm elections since 1938. By 2014, the Republicans, after remaining equally intractable on other bogus stimulus efforts, would run both the Senate and House."

Oh, all of those times the President had the gall to be black and it rallied the racist shiatbirds? The record? Yeah, not surprising.
 
2021-03-01 10:12:42 PM  
Yes how dare they enact legislation that the majority of the country supports and probably thinks doesn't go far enough.
What do they think, that they're beholden to the people that elected them?
Only losers and suckers do the right thing instead of lining their own pockets.
 
2021-03-01 10:24:44 PM  
More legislation
Less turned by executive order

Do as you will
Make it stick

I'm still trying to remember the last time the Dems remembered that they were Dems.

/iirc they last tried in 1968, gave up, and have been crying about 1968 ever since

I only read the title of the article, and I think it is a good thing. Not sure what the problem is with a progressive wish list.

Always good to see the Democratic Centrists are doing what they said they would do and reaching across the aisle to work with the Progressives.

Who are these Republican people and why would anyone care what they say?

Republicans didn't really pass much legislation when they were last in power because they're a bunch of farking idiots led by probably the biggest farking idiot in the world

I've said it before, and I'll say it again:  The GOP is America's Taliban.  They are not interested in, or capable of, governing.  Their only concerns are Profit and Power.  Chaos and stochastic terrorism are the tools they use to produce the instability that they exploit to gain and retain power and profit.  You cannot trust them.  they have no regard for norms or laws, except as avenues of exploitation.

The extremism of the GOP membership is accelerating.  It is intentional.  It is being orchestrated.

The GOP is the RICO Party.  It should be investigated and prosecuted as such.

Apparently, losers whine about Unity, hold the winners' nominees and legislation hostage, and bemoan a lack of "bipartisanship" when their insane, insulting, and worthless counter-proposals made in the worst possible bad faith are dismissed.
