Response to mucifer (Original post)

Fri Feb 5, 2021, 09:33 AM

20. Incorrect on two counts

First, the amendments are all non-binding. Nothing says they have to appear in the final bill. Manchin and Tester were just messaging and will not refuse to vote for the final bill lacking this measure.

Second, at the end of the votearama, a substitute amendment is offered to streamline the process. That happened here, and the Keystone amendment was removed. So it actually never happened. Just theater.
