"Biden's remarks won immediate praise from progressives and activists.

"Glad to hear [Biden] call to bring back the talking filibuster. If Republicans want to block enormously popular policies like protections for our freedom to vote, they should have to hold the floor and do it in public," said Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), a longtime advocate for Senate rules reforms."

It would sure be nice if the democrats would bring back the taking filibuster with at least 40 members of the senate to be present for debate. As soon as the number dips below 40, the debate is over. that makes it hurt for most of the obstructionists, like it should. Make them put up or shut up.

Biden and momentum are two things that don't go together. Biden and dementia, Biden and dotard, Biden and failure, yes.
