2. Biden will do what he must down to his last breath. He is no quitter

As far as those 2 racists go, make them face this President.

5. May the spirit of LBJ

imbue Joe Biden with the courage to melt these two corporate weapons down into plowshares for Democracy.

Or, at the very least, tell them to go register as Republicans, because they can kiss Democratic Party support goodbye.

Oh, LOL, who am I kidding?

6. He should ask them to:

1) talk much more about gop abuse of the filibuster and that if the gop weren't obstructionists there wouldn't be a need to change the fiibuster

2). talk much more about the need to reform election and voting laws and that Manchin and Sinema should work day and night to find gop votes for needed change...instead of causing a need to modify their precious filibuster

7. I'm increasingly curious about how he's talked with them in the past, and what he'll do now.

8. The answer will be NO even if Joe Biden prostrates himself and begs.


But first, they will extract more concessions from him

These racists need to be put on record for all of time

11. Either they're on board.....

or they're done.

Not unlikely to have negative consequences for the Democrats but this shit has to end before our country does.

14. Biden only needs to say two simple things:

Either Manchin and Sinema vote for the carve out and the BBB by Monday, or:

To Manchin:
I will fire your wife from her high paying government job;
I will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate price fixing in the pharmaceutical industry, especially around EpiPens and insulin;
I will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate self dealing and insider trading in the coal brokerage business, and how a brokerage company can turn a profit from commissions from companies that are losing money year after year.

To Sinema:
You will never be allowed to run for president on the Democratic ticket. You wonít be invited to the debates even if you run as a third party spoiler. You wonít even be allowed to run for re-election as a Democrat. Your political career will end with your current term.

They get the same consequences if they switch parties.
