2. There have been about a million threads about this.

My suggestion would be to do a search for some of those.

Beating a dead horse.

5. So, his primary responsibility should be to the party, and not his state? Isn't that what...

we're so pissed at Republicans for lately?

17. If that's true, then the state can raise it's own minimum wage.

10. Not again. If there is something you'd like to say, say it. Otherwise, you're just asking to be ...

...entertained.

It’s not personal, PJ. I say pretty much the same thing to everyone else who posts a one-liner and says “discuss.”

15. That's how Biden got Manchin to switch and endorse Deb Haaland for Interior Secretary.

He had serious reservations about her till then.

West Virginia and Manchin to get a boost from mine cleanups
Biden administration announced $260 million for coal mine reclamation grants days after Manchin endorsed Deb Haaland for Interior secretary

https://www.rollcall.com/2021/03/01/west-virginia-and-manchin-to-get-a-boost-from-mine-cleanups/
West Virginia will be one of the main beneficiaries of the more than $260 million for coal mine reclamation grants announced Monday by the Interior Department, less than a week after Joe Manchin, the state's senior senator, endorsed President Joe Biden's nominee to run the department, Deb Haaland.

States such as West Virginia and Wyoming that have suffered the most from dramatic declines in coal demand will get most of that money through grants that aim to provide an economic boost to communities that long depended on the mines for their livelihood.

Laura Daniel Davis, Interior's principal deputy assistant secretary for land and minerals management, said in a release that the grants boost local economies while addressing environmental damage.

"The job of cleaning up our lands and waters and revitalizing our communities doesn't end with this round of grant announcements — or the next," Davis said. "We look forward to working with Congress to ensure that we can make the needed investments to clean up abandoned mines, as well as orphan oil and gas wells, across the country."

19. Biden said he was the only one who can bring the goops around

Yet he can't persuade a conservative Dem from W. Virginia.

The Dem leadership needs to start leaning on him hard, remind him that being an obstructionist did not work out for Joe Lieberman.
