    Multiple Republican senators have now complained on Twitter about having to show up to work to delay a bill that will lower prescription drug costs and protect the planet.

    Right on. Looks like between 10-40 billion will be stripped out due to that not passing the Byrd Bath. Either way, still a big win, assuming it gets passed.
    If Sinema or Manchin renege they might get assassinated...

    That sucks, but she allowed everything else at least.

    I don't think I put a number on it. If I did it was a guess. If I am still alive I will need it. As for people listening, I did listen when they said Roe vs. Wade was going to be eliminated. Not many did.

It used to be that NO ONE COULD EVER get elected with these plans for such an important program in the United States. Again, an insurance program and the most successful anti-poverty program ever passed.

    One easy way of getting rid of the filibuster. Don't even officially get rid of it, just ignore the rule. It's not a law, it's a convention which only we observe anyway.
    It doesn’t come down to the Senate Parliamentarian for how I’d vote on the measure, even if she struck it all down. I’d vote to abolish the filibuster and to ignore her recommendations. Krysten Sinema will listen to her though, thus the Parliamentarian ruling being important.

    Edit: Now, it all comes down to the Senate Parliamentarian.
    I dont think the Parliamentarian will block it, but if she does do it anyways. Not one voter cares and if that is the best the Cons have to hit us with then the Red Wave is screwed.
