    When all it takes to stop them is the nonbinding opinion of an unelected advisor, are they really trying, though?

          Politicians love non-voters, one less idiot they need to convince.

            I mean, look at how hard Republicans work to increase non-voter numbers. Kinda telling what the outcome is.

        Maybe if Democratic legislators vote harder, the Republicans won’t be able to stop them!

          It should be like one of those buttons you hit with a hammer at a fair. Higher up it goes, the more your vote counts!

      Or a single House speaker that refuses to even bring it up for a vote. Or or a dipshit that brings it up for vote, then filibusters their own bill (coughMcConnellCough)

        The obvious fact that Republicans are much worse doesn’t make it ok for the Democrats to not fight for the things the overwhelming majority of their voters want.

      The parliamentarian’s word is law, baby.

      If only people could eat Democrats’ excuses, no one would ever go hungry.
