The Clintons and the Obamas want to transform the entire political system.
There will be huge ramifications if they manage to get their way.
Barack Obama is scheming with the Clintons to change America in this huge way.
Democrats know that they aren’t in a good position going forward.
Joe Biden is an unpopular president.
Biden ran as a moderate and is acting like he’s a complete radical Bernie Sanders.
He was theoretically going to be more sympathetic than Trump but he checked his watch because he couldn’t spare the time to honor fallen soldiers who died because of his bungled Afghanistan exit.
Biden claimed he was going to stop Covid and not the economy but instead he’s done the exact opposite.
Biden is so unpopular that it’s unlikely that Democrats will be able to keep both the House and the Senate after the midterm elections which is why they’re trying to make huge changes as fast as possible.
Instead of working to become more popular Democrats just want to change the rules.
Which is why, according to a report, former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton have joined celebrity Oprah Winfrey in contacting Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) to try and pressure him into ending the filibuster.
“Manchin has told colleagues that his phone line has been lighting up with prominent names outside the Senate in recent days. He’s heard from former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama and talk-show legend Oprah Winfrey, plus former staffers to both Manchin and former Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), according to a person familiar with the talks,” Politico reported.
In January 2021, Manchin said he would not support killing the filibuster, stating, “If I haven’t said it very plain, maybe Sen. McConnell hasn’t understood, I want to basically say it for you. That I will not vote in this Congress, that’s two years, right? I will not vote” to change the filibuster. “And I hope with that guarantee in place he will work in a much more amicable way.
“I’m in the same place I’ve always been,” he added. “Busting the filibuster under any conditions is wrong. We can organize the Senate. I’m sure we can work through that. If he knows as strongly as I feel about it?”
With the filibuster, a minimum of 60 votes is needed to advance legislation in the Senate.
It keeps America stable since it keeps a slim majority from passing laws that would be unpopular with a vast percentage of the American people.
But Democrats don’t care about that since they believe that if they are able to pass their current election bills that would federalize all elections, they’ll always be able to hold onto power.
