8. At least with a simple majority

the pressure on Manchin and Sinema will just grow and grow. If I were Democrats I would push bill after bill and see how Manchin's no votes sit with the poor people of his state. Eventually the heat will get to him.

The other option, a 60 vote threshold, is a given, we get nothing passed and Republicans use that against us in 2022. At least this way Democrats can show which party obstructed getting things done.
