Manchin Now More 'Open' to DC, Puerto Rico Statehood Question

Sen. Joe Manchin would not rule out granting the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico statehood—a change in tune from comments he made about the notion just a couple months ago.

During an interview on CNN, the Democratic senator told Jake Tapper he didn’t “know enough about that yet,” regarding D.C. statehood, adding that he wants to “see the pros and cons.”

“So I’m waiting to see all the facts. I’m open up to see everything,” he continued.

Regarding Puerto Rico, he responded similarly, saying he needed to see “more facts.”

What have I been saying about Manchin, he's a f'king liar.

I am sure he is more *open* to packing the SCOTUS too!

Notice how his rehetoric changed after GA runoffs?  Predictable.

He says he still wants to keep the filibuster, but just add a couple States and they won't need his vote.

A filibuster is needed to stop this.  Several Republicans are bound to vote in favor.

Manchin is just one more rat, who every once in a blue moon does not vote with the Democommies.  Big deal!!  If West Virginia was ever on their game, they would have tossed him long ago.
