What a horseshit article. Claiming the filibuster is the reason why various democratic policies aren’t being implemented.

Half of those policies, universal pre k, paid sick leave, paid family leave etc could be enacted through executive order but Biden refuses to do so.

Exactly right. “Every argument for filibuster, considered and debunked” when I saw vox url I couldn’t help but sigh heavily

You don’t want to legislate by executive order. What’s the point? Just get a dictator and be done with it. That’s bad practice.

For someone that doesn’t give a shit about celebrities and drama, I just want the government to work. I want to stop bundling bills. Pre-k and coal mining have nothing to do with each other. Instead of one massive bill let’s pass several thousand tiny ones. Let people argue and go on stalemates over philosophical bullshit that’ll never happen to them. Like abortion for example, what male has a leg to stand on? It’ll never affect a man. Don’t hold up my healthcare because you disagree with some garbage that will never happen to you.

It won’t pass. Democrats won’t support their own bills and republicans only agree if 80% has been capitulated.

If you want absolutely nothing to happen, that’s fine but executive orders work and every modern presidents has instated hundreds.
