Why the hell are the Dems so set on including the thugs

in all votes ?
Go vote the bills thru so President Biden can sign them into law and move to the next one.
Isn't it plain that the thugs will not support anything that helps the middle class ?
Give the thugs the finger and go vote the bills thru...

1. Specific examples?

Ones that someone has actually proposed, not breathless speculation from pundits. Thanks.

3. Because overall that is the way Democrats roll . .. .

Democrats believe in working across the aisle and republicans do not.

7. Because saying they won't work with us is one thing

Them coming out and saying it themselves is something else. Voting margins are thin and the more people see Repubs as the doorstop they are the better.

8. All "Dems" aren't saying that

Right now, I think the leadership is throwing out feelers, just to see what the Republicans will do. McConnell has already shown his hand, so Schumer can use that in talks with Manchin and Sinema.

I've seen several people suggest that Schumer should put Manchin and Sinema in charge of rounding up Republican votes. Maybe that way, they would see the futility of it all!

11. I na assume you are referring to the senate

Give me a list of bills that will get 50 or more votes and i will send to Schumer.
See McConnnel has announced that he is blocking everything. - everything

12. I really hope Pres Biden doesn't truly believe

what he's saying about continuing to work with those assholes. You can't negotiate with terrorists, liars, or traitors, and the QOP is all 3.

15. He doesn't, but a good portion of the American people are still being propagandized.

All they're hearing is that "The Democrat Party refuses to work with us" from GQPers. They need to see who the guilty party really is here. Biden, Schumer, et. al, are saying what they have to say. I'm pretty sure they learned there lessons about these assholes long ago. I don't get the impression they're going to play along with them any longer.

16. LMAO

The party isnít universally set on being popular. These are incredibly popular ideas. Settle on the simplest explanation for why someone wouldnít want to be popular and youíre probably right. Itís why I laugh at everything these days. Itís all complete lunacy in pursuit of money and power.

17. Good leverage is hard to find these days.

Blubber the Gut is still yanking the chains and Republicans are terrified to cross IT.
