The Eastern Conference Finals Thread in Anything but Football Posted 11 hours ago 2 minutes ago, Leon Troutsky said: ^^^Perhaps the best summary of her argument in that op-ed. And the idea that the majority party doesn’t get to govern or enact its agenda when it wins an election is the opposite of democracy. So Sinema’s argument that she’s saving democracy by supporting the filibuster is completely backwards. As to her “what if the Republicans do this, this, or that when they win back the majority” stuff, yes that’s exactly what I want to happen. The GOP should be able to enact its agenda if the voters choose them to govern and the voters can hold them accountable in the next election if they don’t like what the GOP is doing. Again, that’s how democracy works. Exactly WHAT does she think is going to happenif the Democrats DON'T end the fillibuster to protect votes? Republicans will suppress Democratic votes, there will be Republican Majorities, and the FIRST thing they will do is eliminate the filibuster. BTW, why didn't they do just that before?
