23. It is not scaoegoating, as he is the one actually doing this, whether single handedly or

leading the charge (depending on the issue). One Senate seat (which is very problematic anyway, given that he was probably only or at least in a large part, re-elected due to the one-off 2018 Blue Wave) that is around 4 years off in terms of election is NOT worth hurting the rest of our Party in the 2022 midterms, hurting Biden overall, and hurting the nation (as he is and likely will continue to block vital parts of Biden's agenda) to a large degree.

Please explain how Manchin blocking multiple parts of Biden's agenda (including parts that would have helped the vast bulk of one of the poorest states in the US) is going to help him get re-elected 4 years from now.

He is knee-capping so many in our Party, with an immediate example being Ossoff and Warnock, who both made the 2000 usd cheques at the same level as last time (along with Biden himself who went down and campaigned for them and also made that a centrepiece of his speeches) a bedrock part of their campaign. Same for the 15 USD minimum wage, which Manchin (and Manchin alone as far as I can tell) opposes.
