I don't see that ever happening to Manchin. (Not to mention, Manchin's heart is probably the size of a raisin right now, and needs to grow a lot more than 3 sizes.)

They probably set him up for this.
I wouldn't be surprised if he comes back to the bargaining table quick when he realizes his GOP "friends" are using him.

I am just sick to death of government, policy making and communication by “F in” Twitter. Wish to the heavens that the goddamn thing never was developed.

Look at all the other people they elect to office and the fact that Manchin is the best out of them.

People keep saying how they support this bill but not as much as they support other things which decide their vote.

Senator Durbin.........you are right on the money. Manchin has been a class act ass for as long as I've heard of him. Why he keeps pretending to be a Democrat beats me!!! He IS no democrat.
