Mitch McConnell took a flamethrower to the Senate after President Obama nominated Merrick Garland for SCOTUS. Now we're living on scorched earth. Whether it's via a "democracy" exception or a reinstitution of the "talking filibuster," the filibuster *as we know it now* must die.

McConnell: We denied Garland a hearing. We enabled Trump's assault on the rule of law. But we'll be mad if you alter the filibuster even in response to a national assault on voting rights. We Republicans do what we want; you Democrats suffer what you must. https://t.co/gFAssWNqu9

Mitch McConnell took the Senate floor to threaten on behalf of the filibuster: "Nobody serving in this chamber can even begin to imagine what a completely scorched-earth Senate would look like." Why the dire warning? Because he's worried. Why the bluster? Because he's bluffing.

Am I losing my mind or did Democrats win the Senate and McConnell is essentially filibustering them taking majority control of the body?

No sooner has the portion of Rachel Maddow's interview with Senator Majority Leader Chuck Schumer aired than Mitch McConnell has put out a statement that he is folding, ending the stand-off. https://t.co/9qR1jpKXkf

Mitch McConnell already killed the filibuster to steal 2 Supreme Court seats for Trump But he wants to keep it to block $2,000 checks & John Lewis Voting Rights Act

As Senator McConnell once said: "Elections have consequences." Republican demands to cling to power after losing the election are just an excuse to continue their obstruction. Americans want action, not more stall tactics from sore losers.

Now that Mitch McConnell (pictured here with his favorite racist flag) is finally out of power he is demanding a "shared power agreement" with Democrats. It's absurd. I pray to God that @SenSchumer just say NO. https://t.co/CixvVcWoLK

McConnell is like the serial abuser who demands that the other side promise right now never to get a restraining order.

Schumer rejects McConnell proposal to affirm to spare the filibuster as part of power-sharing deal. “Leader McConnell’s proposal is unacceptable - and it won’t be accepted.”

The last person who should be lecturing Democrats on democratic norms is Mitch McConnell, who blocked Merrick Garland for 237 days before election but confirmed Amy Coney Barrett 8 days before election when 65 million people had already voted

The Democrats should show Mitch McConnell all the respect and deference he showed them in recent years.

Correct. It’s what McConnell did at the start of Obama’s term — reject every olive branch and refuse to cooperate, and then complain that Obama hadn’t achieved the bipartisanship he promised. https://t.co/VfMwNR17NT

The American people chose to retire four Republican Senators and elect a Democratic majority to this Senate. Senator McConnell’s proposal for how to organize the Senate is unacceptable—and it won’t be accepted.

The fact that Mitch McConnell can use the filibuster to prevent the majority from taking control of the Senate is a pretty good argument against the filibuster.

Dear @SenSchumer No shared power agreement. Don't fall for Mitch McConnell's sleazy politics anymore. Just say no. The American people voted for CHANGE.

McConnell is threatening to filibuster the Organizing Resolution which allows Democrats to assume the committee Chair positions. It’s an absolutely unprecedented, wacky, counterproductive request. We won the Senate. We get the gavels.
