Dear President Biden, please get over your pride and pass the infrastructure 2.2 trillion dollar bill.
The retrumplicans and the few Republicans aren’t going to play your game.
So please just get with the program, the one you outlined when you got elected. That’s what we want.
Honestly, we care more about taking advantage of this brief opportunity to to “build back better” a strong democracy of which the people of the United States of America can be proud.
You’re the only one that can bring this country back together and it’s not by playing footsy with the people trying to destroy it.
GET TOUGH, STAND TALL, and LEAD.
Biden needs to get his party in line. He needs to know that we want to spend as much time and resources as it takes to reveal all the criminal activity of the trump administration and prosecute the guilty parties to the fullest extent of the law.
We’re happy to move on only after we’ve cleaned up the last for years.
You can’t build a new administration on a turd pile.
The retrumplicans have turned the Republican party into a crazy mob of lunatics. Their belief in everything Trump says is true is ridiculous. We know it’s all a sham. Most of these people know they’re lying, they just have no moral center.
This is the evolution of the years of the Gingrich playbook. We should have seen it coming with the tea party, and some of us did.
What are these so called legislators doing in office? We continue to see their humiliating conduct ever since the 2020 election.
All those guilty of continuing the big lie, that the election was fraudulent, should at least be relieved of duty until they can be prosecuted for the insurrection of which they took part.
Since when do we compromise with crooks?
The Republican legislature is riddled with liars insurrectionist and crazy conspiracy theorists.
Who are you going to legislate with the Republican party is a sham.
The only bipartisan should possible is with the people not the Republican legislature. It’s about time we give the people what they want.
There is just a handful of Republicans in the entire Congress. The remaining seats on the right side of the isle are occupied by retrumplicans.
Retrumplicans have no use for laws or governing. Their only reason for existence is self gratification,and at the alter of the worlds greatest con man, d trump.
So forget about bipartisanship in the Old terminology.
It’s up to the Democrats and the one or two or three or four Republicans left in Congress to govern for America and if that means passing bills through reconciliation or possibly altering the filibuster then so be it. No need to waste any more talk on bipartisanship.
Is there anything more frustrating than the United States Senate over the past many years?
Thankfully, the Republicans ( Retrumplicans) no longer have the majority in the Senate and with any good fortune at all, the Democrats can adjust the rules so that the Retrumplicans don’t just squat in the middle of the road and hold up traffic, as they have been doing for 20 some years.
Pray for peace and decency and vote this bilious bunch out of the Congress.
In Chicago, I like the Wrigley building-even though he leaned to the right. I like the Tribune tower even though the newspaper leans right. I like the Hancock building unaware of John’s politics.
Every time I look North from Clark and Lake…..and see the Trump building with it’s big sign, it’s like getting kicked in the stomach
I don’t know if a campaign to remove it would succeed, but I would jump on board if enough folks felt as I do.

Gun legislation has become a pathetic political football kicked around this way and that with no common sense being applied to the issue.
It’s really quite simple. If a firearm is used in the commission of a crime put the criminal in jail, for a long, long time.
Set the potheads free and make room for the real violent criminals, and then put them in jail for a long, long time.
The vast majority of gun owners are responsible. It’s only the miniscule minority that picks up a gun and uses it in the commission of a crime. Those few should be treated harshly. That’s all there is to it. Leave the gun owners alone, put the violators away. Increase the sentence, not the number of laws.
Quit playing games with gun laws.
