One question, if you're right, why are the financial markets not in a sheer panic right now?
Thats what I was asking. I have my own opinions

The Senate is voting on cloture for the motion to proceed to the CR + debt ceiling bill. 60 votes are needed under current senate rules and in all likelihood won’t be had.

Evidently the NY Times knows something you don't:

"Party leaders like Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky want to force Democrats to raise the limit on their own, through a fast-track congressional process that bypasses a Republican filibuster."

See, the filibuster doesn't come into play here, Dems can and will do it all on their own.
It's a classic play by the GOP, Schumer & Pelosi have been out smarted again.
Dems control both Houses of Congress and they think the GOP will get blamed when the US defaults on the debt?
Good luck with that!
They have all the tools they need and have been told for months there would be no GOP votes for increasing the debt ceiling.
There won't be any bi-Partisanship on funding cradle to grave socialism, Chuck & Nancy get to do that all on their own.
Too funny!

Filibuster is able to be bypassed & therefore does not come into play in regards to a default
It really is pretty clear, not sure why you're having a comprehension problem.
Oh wait, you're a....
Keep thinking your winning, you're not and only you don't know it.
Saying police officers were killed on a specific date at a specific event three times,
that is an example of an intentional falsehood meant to deceive.
That $hits all on you AMS, it doesn't wash off like your weekend activities.

You bring up poop a lot.

I think you should keep your fetishes to yourself, as it has nothing to do with my sex life.

Since you have to raise the debt primarily for money already spent, Repubs won't sign the check the check for Trump's tax cuts. That's the way it will play.

You do not have to "sign a check" for tax cuts. You sign a check for spending. Tax cuts are not spending. See the difference?

I have not heard about the filibuster being used on it at all.

I still do not get if the Democrats hate the filibuster so much why did they not get rid of it before the most recent election?
