    Linked was DOA. We got as much as we could. We barely even got that so I dont know why these people think we could have gotten a linked bill of wishes and dreams passed.

    We don’t know that, but I don’t blame them for rushing to pass something after the Virginia debacle.

    So John Tester and Joe Manchin are the ones who voted against the vaccine mandates for federal employees.

    I believe that Manchin and Sinema are playing off each other to stall legislation.

    Spoiler alert: he never backed an offer. it's just smoke and mirrors to run out the clock until a RepubliQan House and/or Senate takes over.

    Same strategy as Trump: time is a commodity, use it up.

    Daily Kos - 'Senate Leaders To Speed Action on Voting Rights' despite filibuster threat from segregationists (liberal blog)
    Manchin is always lying about the filibuster and its history while voting for $770B per year in defense/weapons spending alone. And they just recently bypassed the filibuster for the debt ceiling as well:

    Souls? Sweet summer child, souls dont factor into it. Only money, attention, and a life of luxury. To secure those things they'd disenfranchise millions gladly.

    He only has 20% of the vote but he belongs to the RepubliQan party where that doesn't matter anymore.

    But he's only down by 30,000 votes so there must be at least 30,001 fake votes. :loco:
