There's a short window in which to pass the broad LGBTQ civil rights bill. It means ending the filibuster, to which Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is adamantly opposed.
She's one of my senators and call and write her weekly. She somehow thinks she's serving the reds here, but I've asked her to just "come out" as the republican she is and to quit lying to us here... she's a DINO
Absolutely right on target and sorry I didn't ask Now President Biden in my interview with him what he would do if the Republican's in Senate tried to hold it up through filibuster.
This is more about than Simema, or even Manchin. It's about the Democratic Party, and whether it will, as its values statements direct us, "put evidence behind its values statements", or not.
LGBT voters must stand up and demand that both Senators, and the Party, make happen what is very well within out power to do.
"Democrats may only have control of the House and Senate for two years, so there’s been much discussion among progressives and Democrats about ending the filibuster" So it's not about doing what the American people want, it's about doing what the Biden admin wants. Nice admission that your party has overplayed its hand, or you wouldn't be concerned about the mid-terms. So it's abolish the filibuster so we can jam everything down America's collective throat because you would otherwise never get it done. Ah, before you lose the House and Senate in 2022. What an immoral political party.
All about the money, she is corrupt to the bone. Look at how she votes, the wishes of her lobbying scum aka legalized bribery. How can a gay person vote against something that will help her people? Disgusting!
That kind of response and the overall, intentional avoidance would make me doubt someone was actually bi just because they said they were and more likely to think of them as 'bi until graduation' if they were at all and weren't just lying for some end, especially if willful misrepresentation was already brought up concerning other things. Of course, discussing that is just a can of worms people wouldn't dare to open--it's drama when it's people you know but a senator?
Ok, what kind of action are you suggesting ?! I’m all for getting rid of the filibuster! More so after last week- tired of the party of hypocrisy & “no” always working against the good of the country!
I’m already writing with PostcardsToVoters to proven Democratic voters for Democratic candidates. We obviously need the strongest bench possible at all levels of government!
So how do we get the AZ Senator to stop being so two-faced & hypocritical?!
