    I can't believe they are only expanding Medicare for hearing. Still no eyes or teeth fixed for old people. Unbelievable how little regard there is for the elderly. The united states is like a third world country. It has been for a long time . They just hide the fact that anyone who isn't rich gets to have good teeth. Anyone else, even people with dental through work, can't afford dental care. No regulations on exorbinate dental fees. Why is this not a problem? Teeth for old people! For gods sake where are the priorities?

    If Democrats don't make what happened on Dec.6th prosecutable to the people that encouraged it and funded it, {the people at the top of it}, will just do it again and the people who caused it will stay in office causing more trouble and break more laws. You have to stop letting the privileged elites who commit these crimes against democracy get away with it. You have to punish them severely. Next time you may get hung by an angry mob, if there is even a Democrat party left to begin with. Looks like republicans are rigging things in state governments to steal all elections from now on. Using fake voter fraud claims to justify it. It's war democrats and you better start fighting with everything you got, your lives and ours depend on it.

    His solution is more dems in the senate? That's it? That's like a tinpot semi-dictatorship saying the only way to end the tyranny is to elect me (eg let me be the tyrant). How about we actually structurally change the senate and house? For one, make the speaker and senate president non-partisan like they are in most democracies around the world. Speakers should not be able to partisan block bills from even being debated. Secondly, how about changing the senate from 2 people from each state elected by people after parties and corporate interests select the candidates, into a small jury panel of 5 per state, chosen by lottery and voir dired for unbiased non-partisan voting? Just those 2 for now. If anybody wants more, just say so. Cheers.

    Reading comments like moraly bankrupt, ethically-challenged and so on, it's no wonder Biden is president ! Schiff is a weasel and a political leach. I can't believe the comments here. Not only is this guy a leaker, he's one if not the biggest liar in congress. He just insulted half the country on this show and you say he's pure ! Jan 6 is a result of people like Schiff who lied to the people for 4 years supported by the MSM. This is what happens when you only hear one side of a story and twisted at that. The attack on democracy started with HRC and her Russian dossier. She cheated to get elected and it didn't work. But according to MSM and the DNC, it was the republicans that cheated with Russia. Now that we know the truth, how can anyone believe a guy like Schiff who went around the country telling everyone he had proof, iron clad according to him. Unbelievable ! Judging from the comments here, people wouldn't see the truth if it bit them in the derriere. I can only blame this on ignorance of what's really going on in congress. Finding the truth is a full time job with lots of over time. There is always 3 sides to a story, if you don't listen to all 3, you have no clue of what's really going on. That's why it's impossible to have a conversation about politics with people that are at opposite sides because they've been polarized by the MSM. Believing in elected democrats right now is believing the whole world can go green in a year like in Biden's mind. A true patriot would listen to all 3 sides of all stories coming out of the white house because politicians lie all the time, including Schiff.

    When people talk about Adam Schiff, HONEST IS NOT WHAT COMES TO MIND.. What comes to mind is corrupt and criminal. And yes, we want to filibuster any law that tries to force amnesty when it doesn't belong in there. And NO ONE KNOWS what is in this bill, no one. So I hate when these assholes say that it's popular, and completely paid for, its not! The House can lose up to 100 seats in 2022... and that will be epic!

    the GOP is locked into the idea that the American people will believe incendiary lies calling all government "Communism" except the dictatorial "reign" of a despot with a GOP label. The contents of legislation never matters to them, ONLY who is in power, and there is nothing so good for America they won't fight it tooth and nail to preserve their fiction that ONLY THEY are allowed to rule and WHATEVER they do defines what's "good for" Americans.

    Adam Schiff called the social good bill the “Build Back Better” bill. It was a catchy slogan for the infrastructure part of the bill, though just calling it the infrastructure bill would have been clearer. Build Back Better is a silly, meaningless name for the social part of the bill that is now stand-alone (as it always should have been). Build Back Better for the social bill makes no sense and it is only confusing, but being confusing is a specialty of the Dems. The Dems are so dopey about messaging that you have to wonder if they’ve ever even heard of a PR person. The social part of the bill should be called: “For The People” because it is for the people just as the infrastructure part of the bill was about infrastructure. I suspect it’s Biden who thinks up the dopey names and refuses to change them. Messaging can win or lose elections. Someone has to grab Biden by his lapels and force him to let people who understand messaging to take over.

    Adam Schiff, Superman in a tie. 'The longest hour is just before dawn.' hopefully, Americans will take this as serious as it is and vote. Hopefully Biden and others will make laws that stop gerrymandering and attacks that made our votes not even count!! Those who have believed the lies, that Democrats are evil and cheating, they love winning more than they love democracy. They don't want a Democrat to win even if it's fair. And that means they don't value democracy anymore. They are the enemy of the USA, not us. Even the global community rated us as a democracy in decline towards authoritarianism. That's because the right has decided they can't win a fair vote. They can't win with democracy. Therefore, they are tearing us down, and building up the only route they see to their empowerment - authoritarianism. If we who love democracy don't stand with all we have right NOW, we will lose everything our fathers died to give us. Freedom. Liberalism is Liberty. Authoritarianism is oppression.
