BREAKING: Bernie Sanders Says It’s OVER – Congress Stunned

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said on MSNBC Friday that Democrats should end the filibuster so that the minority can’t stand in the way of passing bills that “the American people want.”

“If we cannot get Republican support in one way or another, we’ve got to go forward [with the filibuster],” Sander said. “It is my position absolutely that democracy has got to prevail in the United States Senate. We cannot have — continue to have minority who are obstructing what the American people want. So count me in as somebody who believes the majority should rule in the Senate so that we can begin doing the business of the American people.”

There are a few problems with Sanders’ viewpoint, however. It is not clear that the majority of Americans really want New Green Deal-type climate change laws that would cost trillions and raise energy prices through the roof–one of the priorities Sanders says need to be passed without the filibuster.

Another issue is that even without the filibuster, some of his bills like the $15 per hour minimum wage, do not have 50 Democrat votes. Sanders can’t even truthfully say that Republicans are the minority when the Senate is 50-50.

Finally, moderate Democrat Senators like Joe Manchin (WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) are enjoying their newfound power as the last defense against radical-left legislation and there’s no way they are going to let that power go away by getting rid of the filibuster.

  1. Nope..as a legal American. I believe in the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I have a choice to vote. No one can vote for me. I dont care if there are people who got voted to speak for me. As an individual I have a choice and rights.

  2. Democracy! Did Bernie Sanders real say democracy. That’s like putting lipstick on a pig. Not at the sake of the “New Republic”, it has nothing to do with political parties, either. When you serve a party and not the PEOPLE. That’s not political especially in D,C., that’s criminal.

    1. right get rid of the swamp, anyone who as been there as long as Sanders McConnell and a lot of others should just take the money they did nothing far and retire…..

  3. Screw you Bernie!! Dems hate fairness! You are an idiot- no one listens to you- just resign to your illegally begotten fortunes and CB leave DC- you will NOT be missed!!

  4. Show me one American who believes in our Constitution regarding giving our tax dollars to illegals and convicts and I’ll show you an anti American. Bernie is a commie and is lying when he said people want it. BTY no bail oot for badly run Blue state and the rest of the Democratic pork in this so called we the We The People Act. What a Joke. God less American.

  5. All Sanders is doing is lying again to the American people like he always dose. The damn democrats can never be trusted. Open your eyes wide people, see just what the democrats are doing to our country and also the people of this country.

  6. The problem we have TODAY is, there are in CONGRESS a slew of IMBECILES who believe they are MORE INTELLIGENT than the FOUNDING fathers. What they created lead to the USA, becoming the greatest government for its people and most of the world. Since the beginning of recorded HIETORY. And these SIMPLETEM’S want to change it. All their brains mashed together to make one, on a scale of one to a hundred THOMAS JEFFERSON being ONE HUNDRED they just might hit one. Hi Nancy , SCHUMER, SANDERS ,AOC Etc, Etc, !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
