i said it on election night and i'll say it again. if the democrats spend more time patting themselves on the back for beating trump and retaking the senate than taking this opportunity to act, they will regret it two years from now. it's time to stop giving a shit about bipartisanship.

Members of a party that is ok with inciting insurrection, conspiracy theories, and more. How pathetic

(CNN)The Arizona Republican Party sent a clear signal Saturday that its leadership remains loyal to former President Donald Trump when it voted to publicly punish Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, former Sen. Jeff Flake and Cindy McCain, all of whom opposed Trump's efforts to overturn President Joe Biden's victory, or in the case of Flake and McCain, endorsed the Democrat before the election.

The decision to censure those three Republicans -- in addition to re-electing controversial chairwoman Kelli Ward -- solidified the rightward shift of the official party, while also reflecting the deep fractures among Arizona Republicans over the future of the GOP, which suffered bruising defeats at the ballot box in 2020 in this increasingly purple state.

Agree with this. The Dems still believe the GOP of old, like real old, exists and there’ll be a return of compromise and working together.

There’s no one left in that party who wants to work across the isle. Mittens would maybe be the closest one but he’s shown himself to be a coward and still only cares about tax cuts and judges.

The Dems need to kill the filibuster, pass legislation that will help as many people as they can, and for the love of everything fix you damn messaging. People need to know that the relief, a new law or regulation, or any benefit to the middle and lower classes came from a functional Democratic government!

I would rather the Dems be bold and do work and lose in 2022 then try to and work with Mitch and still lose because they got played.

Probably all for nothing since Joe Manchin has stated multiple times he will not vote to end filibuster

Dems ought to be bold and also to be on the offensive for 2022. The map favors them.

it's been a pleasure watching Canadian-American Seth Rogen drag fellow Canadian-American Rafael "Ted" Cruz on twitter these past few days.

Both Cruz and Rogen are common Canadian-American mongrels.

Love for the swing vote in the Senate to be a right wing guy with direct family interest in big pharma!

We need a constitutional amendment that prohibits obstructionism.

If there’s going to be no consequence for people breaking the rules then something horrible will eventually happen.

Fine these members who are running thru the checkpoints, and arrest them if they continue to do it.
I think they are being increasing fined for each offense. I'd love to see them arrested!

I made the PTSD comparison the other day as well. It definitely seems a fitting description. I know how you feel-today when I got online I had to remind myself, "Oh, right, it's okay to read the news again."
Heh! I'd not heard that yet. Good one. Can't believe we have to deal with her!

That’s the sentiment from people i talk to back in Iowa. That we should just move on and try to find compromises. I feel this is exactly how a democracy falls with this line of thinking.

I would rather we do the right thing no matter the outcome. If we get to 2025 and a new version of Trump has taken hold we’ll look back and say “Why didn’t we do something when we had the chance !!?!?”

My friend asked what if trying to impeach Trump, killing the filibuster ends up costing us the votes we need to win in 2022/2024 and my response is then our country is already lost.

I worry doing nothing tells the people who busted their asses, the minority communities that were literally voting to save their lives (while risking their own too) that nothing matters. If Dems suffer another Clinton like turnout it’s over and we’ll see that if they don’t at least try to bring some justice and pass legislation they said they would.
Since there are more of us than them doing the impeachment is doing the right thing, and showing our side that we are on it. His actions have consequences - even if he's not convicted he's the only President to be doubly impeached. It stands in History, and many people are still moved by History.

Let’s not panic just yet?

Removing the filibuster — which I favor — is also A Big Deal, and it may take some time to get to yes. Politics is a game. Let’s let it play out.
