Why haven't the Dems passed a senate organizing resolution for the 117th Congress?

What are they waiting for?

2. Waiting on getting Manchin et al's say so to get rid of filibuster OR's. The kGOP is threatening ...

... quietly at best to filibuster any OR and it doesn't look like we have to votes to get rid of the filibuster for this one thing.

NOTE:

1933 Germany happened in part because the majority left did not stick together, Hitler et al at best were at 43% approval (sound familiar) we have to find a way to stick together and pressure Manchin et al to get rid of the filibuster where needed.

Moscow Mitch will delay to the end and no doubt could give a damn if hundreds of millions of Americans die in the mean time

4. +1, I still don't see after everything why anyone would think we could work with the kGOP. After TRM

...TRMS last night I'm am ... COMPLETELY ... done with their asses.

They don't care about democracy and are screaming it ever so loudly

6. Why can't Schumer and Biden put the squeeze on Manchin and get this done?

It will help Manchin's constituents, for fuck's sake! WV's Republican governor just called for the $1400 checks and to "go big" on covid relef, giving Manchin cover to do away with the filibuster, since that's the only way we will be able to go big. https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/536771-west-virginia-governor-urges-congress-to-go-big-on-covid-19-relief
