GOP rallies around Manchin, Sinema

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: The Hill

hRepublicans are rallying around Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), the centrists who are in a fierce battle with progressives in their party.

Senate Republicans, despite having many policy differences with Manchin and Sinema, are singing their praises, knowing that they will be key to stopping or slowing President Bidenís ambitious agenda.

Both Democrats would be top Republican targets in 2024 if they decide to run for reelection, and GOP leaders are usually loath to offer praise to such lawmakers.

But in a 50-50 Senate, where Manchin and Sinema can make or break Bidenís policy goals, many Republicans hail them as saviors.

Fox News has written very favorable articles about both as of late.

1. THIS is all we need to know. They don't have to change parties, they can help the GOP destroy us

from the inside. Do they share what dems are negotiating with repukes too?

4. We're wasting our time with these two.

Might even be better to court vulnerable Republicans.

Either way, it's never a good idea to negotiate with hostage takers

5. Can Dems kick them out of the party?

The DNC needs to kick them to the curb.

17. To be fair the two Senators have essentially done that.

So, that is why I can understand why people like the OP might ask such a question and why others might advocate for a Democratic challenger that would be more willing to assist on passing legislation.

18. that is different than just handing the entire legislative agenda over to the repugs

I agree with trying to get voters to bring in better democrats.

7. They're not only helping republicans make sure nothing gets done

They're making sure the public isn't even aware it is republicans who do nothing. They, with plenty of help from the complicit corporate media,, are making the Democratic Party look terrible because they are keeping things from getting done.

I'm gonna get the popcorn ready for when their lickspittle defenders come along to tell us we must love them.

I am still amazed how the media still labels these two as 'centrists'.

12. One good thing about these two is that they allow Shumer to be Leader, not McConnell.

But with their current stances, the best we will likely see is a largely watered down reconciliation bill, along with the infrastructure bill. Iím not even sure weíll see voting rights passed because both have declared numerous times that they would not vote to end it so now it would be hugely embarrassing to do so.

That may be all we see before the 2022 election because neither Sinema nor Manchin seem concerned about getting anything done. I canít remember what else is in the queue that the House has already passed. If the Senate operated as speedily as the House, these bills would have passed months ago.

16. Even though they suck

 

Chuck Schumer is a milk toast leader at best who let's McConnell punch him in the stomach daily.

We need fighters willing to fight back against these traitors, while I have respect for Nancy Pelosi to get things done, I lack confidence in Schumer twisting arms and making deals to get things done in the senate.

19. well if this was the repugs, the next step would be to threaten their families

but Dems are more civiliized. So we have to stick to just twisting arms, not breaking them. Hopefully, someday manchin and sinema will appreciate the difference, or get better Democrats to replace them.
