Oh, That Other F-Bomb

The one that describes Karen and her Democrats – Fraudsters.

In 2020 (that would be last year, before the Great Steal) Democrats used this “antiquated procedural norm resulting in the obstructionism our Founding Fathers warned us against,” this “legislation-killing” rule 321 times to defeat popular legislation while Republicans used it once. Where was Karen?

In 1964 the Democrats set the record for the longest filibuster on record in an attempt to kill the 1964 Civil Rights Act passed by Republicans. (Maybe this is the reference to the Democrat’s ‘Jim Crow’ laws). Where was Karen?

As far as the Constitution and Founding Fathers, a President formerly known as Senator Joe Biden said in a Senate speech he characterized as ‘one of the most important speeches for historical purposes that I will have given in the 32 years since I have been in the Senate.’

"it is my personal belief that the Senate should be more judicious in the use of the filibuster." He added that "it should come as no surprise that in periods where the electorate is split very evenly, as it is now, the filibustering of nominations was used extensively." But ending the filibuster, he said, was a mistake. "It is not only a bad idea, it upsets the constitutional design and it disservices the country," Biden’s speech said. "No longer would the Senate be that ‘different kind of legislative body’ that the Founders intended. No longer would the Senate be the ‘saucer’ to cool the passions of the immediate majority."

Where was Karen?

And poodle what do you call yourself?

So sorry Karen Obits your simplistic statement about common good legislation is false. The filibuster prevents the majority party from dominating policy..you only want it now because the Democrats are in control. Another partisan hack

Yea, Buddy
