12. Manchin is open to modifying the filibuster,

saw him on MTP and he said he's open to 'making it more painful.. make them stand' ie old school style.

We could also exempt voting/civil rights bills from the filibuster to get HR1 and HR4 passed, otherwise the GOP voter suppression efforts will have devastating effects.

The EC is hardcoded into the Constitution and much harder to get rid of. The National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC) may be one method to get around it.
