Senator Manchin Says Pigs Need To Fly

Thinking that Democrats & repubs can work together is just as likely.

But we need him more than he needs us, so we'll just nod and humor him.

2. He's Shut The Door On Anything Else

He's going to beat that drum until the Democrats lose both houses of Congress next year, and the White House in 2024.

Call me naive.

16. President Biden Has No Choice

He can only do so much in his position. He has no choice but to support compromise, Especially since the filibuster exists, and because of Senators like Manchin, isn't going away anytime soon. Biden can't exactly get up and threaten anything if no compromise is reached, because his powers are limited.

I agree with Manchin that there needs to be outreach to the other side, and a pursuit of compromise. But I also know with 100 CERTAINTY, that this idea that the other side is an open minded participant in this process, is a joke! There was not a single one in both houses, who supported the Covid relief bill, and if they won't support that, they're NEVER going to support another thing President Biden proposes.

7. Even if an issue had 90+% public support Manchin

would not put the Country before himself. That makes him a Douche.

8. No. The Question is Support in WV. Senators Are Elected from Their State

Is there an issue that has 90 percent support by WV voters that Manchin is choosing to ignore?

10. Compromise?

They don't compromise. THEY VOTE NO, NO, NO!!

Their idea of compromise is getting Democrats to water down their bills, and then vote against it anyways.

Anything that can't be done through reconciliation isn't getting done. Forget about Voting Rights or Gun Control.

11. That's what I'm implying.

Manchin talks about compromise and getting Republicans on board and blah blah blah.... ok, go ahead and try. Let him hit that brick wall of resistance and then let’s see if he still wants to “compromise”

Let him see that there’s nothing they’re willing to compromise on. Let him see that Republicans won’t compromise on anything that he would actually support. ... even though I’m sure he knows that and this is just political theater.

12. Manchin has a 'D' by his name.

I'll leave it for others to determine what it means.
