Schumer Unable to Deliver United Democrat Senate

When Democrats took over the Senate and gained the majority with Harris’ tie-breaking vote, Senator Schumer (D-N.Y.) was tasked with delivering the Biden agenda.

Schumer was expected to deliver a full slate of Democrat votes and swing the handful of anti-Trump Republicans over to the left to make this happen.

Schumer, however, has been an epic failure, often unable even to deliver his fellow Democrats, creating even more divide in the Democrat party.

Crushing Blow for Dems, Schumer

After reaching the majority, Democrats made it quite clear they had no intention of working with Republicans.

They used reconciliation on the first budgetary bill that went through Congress, raising red flags even among some moderate Democrats.

Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) was among those concerned and even though he voted for that bill, he vowed it would be the last time.

Now, Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) is siding with Manchin over Schumer, showing a clear crack in the Democrat Party.

When you consider that House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) failed to deliver the full slate of Democrats in the For the People Act, Democrats are growing more concerned that they are about to waste the first two years of Joe Biden’s presidency.

If the 2022 election goes the way we think it will go, Biden will be nothing more than a lame-duck president for the majority of his term.

This has created a bit of a panic on the far left, with progressives starting to express their concern over the leadership of Schumer.

Mary Small, the national advocacy director for the progressive group Indivisible, stated, “It is absolutely his job to be using every tool that he has in his toolbox to unify his caucus and be able to move things ahead.

“That is the entire mandate that he has as leader. This is certainly not just the Manchin-Sinema show.”

Schumer has openly attacked the filibuster, but he does not even have the support within his own party to end it, let alone the 10 Republican votes that would be needed as well.

Actually, Schumer’s divisive and one-sided ways have led to a complete defection by Manchin, who published an op-ed this weekend blasting the partisan nature of legislation working its way through Congress.

In part, he stated, “I have always said, ‘If I can’t go home and explain it, I can’t vote for it. And I cannot explain strictly partisan election reform or blowing up the Senate rules to expedite one party’s agenda.”

Manchin has put a target on his head, and members of his own party are now attacking him to get him to cave.

Progressive media members have now taken to calling him a racist and power-hungry, but that has only made Manchin did in more.

It all points to a failure greater than Paul Ryan’s when he was the Republican Speaker of the House.

Schumer has been waiting for this moment for years, and he is failing miserably, much to our delight.

  1. Go Senators Manchin, Sinema. and others. I’m so glad you are using good judgment and thinking for “We the People” We need you badly, so “may your tribe increase!”
    Thank you, Sirs!!!!

    1. I think Manchin needs to switch parties and join the Republicans! He would be seen in a better light in his home state for the next election if he just makes the move now rather than later! I don’t like many DEMWITTS, but I like what Manchin did for the COUNTRY!!!!

      1. Manchin is one who would be a worthy choice for Rats to lead them and well, but then again, he has honor, is fair minded, at least has some pride in a just party. Not one for decades in office now has had these attributes !! He also has the guts to buck the radicals . I truly believe he could whip them into a useful and just party in the USA, its NOT gonna happen with the lot of them in now. They do not play well with the opposing party, in fact they hate our freaking guts and think the only Republican is a repressed one.

      2. Manchin is a great leader of a great state. He certainly shows his heart and desire to do the right thing especially for West Virginia. He has demonstrated his feelings for what is right. I think he has seen the evil desires of the Democratic Party and is brave enough to speak his opinion . We have a lot of respect for Manchin…

        1. Kathryn..agree… From a West Virginia taxpayer, Mr. Manchin is doing right so far. He needs to force respect for the 2A and sink gun control laws; he needs to force domestic energy production and sink any “green new deals”, Biden’s cancellation of drilling and pipelines, closure of coal electric generation, etc. 2022 cannot come soon enough.

    1. John Tess, I agree there are a few good Democrats but danged few that are willing to work with the Republicans. Or perhaps they are the repressed ones in Congress and a only few lead by fear and strong arm tactics.

    1. Demonrats are on their way out. A year from now people will ask….whats a democrat? LOLOLOLO Good riddance.

  2. Anthony Manzo
    Couldn’t Happen to a NICER GUY. This third GENERAION AMERICAN DEMOCRAT is OVERJOYED to see there are TWO AMERICAN DEMOCRATS still in CONGRESS. So much for the FASCISTS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. I do not agree with Democrats very often, but I do on this matter…..❤️🗽🇺🇸🗽

  4. If there were more senators like Senator Manchin there might be some hope for this country.

  5. Good for you Joe. It’s about time someone stood up to shumuck up and Polosi , glad to see someone has a sole

  6. Folks, Senator Manchin is a prime example of what the Democratic party “used” to be. I left the Democratic party because they are so power hungry that they don’t even care about their own. They talk about “FOR THE PEOPLE ACT” as though they are so concerned with voting rights. However, it was the Dems (with Robert KKK Byrd and Joe Biden) who fought against black people voting. If the Dems were so worried about giving minority voting rights, then why did they do everything in their power to stop minorities from voting. Time for these hypocrites to go.

  7. This putz Schumer is very much like Biden. A law degree from a prestigious Ivy League school in the east, in the mid 70’s. Big bucks at his feet, the world was his oyster, could have lived very well. He chose to go into public service….why? Has spent approximately 40 plus years in the Senate….his nickname “obstruct and obfuscate Chuck” Has virtually done nothing of note, other than what his nickname implies. So, Mr. Seven ways from Sunday, to get you…..falls flat on his face. One of the most worthless reps. in the Senate, maybe doesn’t understand, “the chickens have come home to roost “. Can’t hang on to something you never had…..Bye Chucky!

  8. You would do a lot better Charlie if you actually paid attention to what your constituents are saying & telling you to do rather than posing for photo ops!

It’s been 32 days since Joe Biden has done an interview.

He needs to stop hiding and answer Americans’ questions.

The 13-member Biden traveling press pool was given no access to @POTUS’s inspection of the Guard of Honor with the Queen at Windsor Castle.

It’s a breach of precedent to not have White House reporters there.

Voter ID measures are the rule, not the exception, in Europe.

Is Joe Biden going to call for a boycott of our European allies after he supported one in Georgia?
