Do You Trust Senator Joe Manchin?
By Joey Saia

Of all the issues facing our country, one of the most important issues is the vote to eliminate the filibuster rule. Do you have confidence that Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia will make the right decision when casting his vote?

Let's look at recent history of the filibuster.  From 1975 until 2013, the Senate required a three-fifths majority vote to end a filibuster, or 60 votes.  One way the filibuster could not be used was in blocking Executive and Judicial Branch nominees.  In 2013, then–Democrat majority leader Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option.  This option, voted in by a 52-to-48 vote along party lines, changed the rules so that all Executive Branch Cabinet appointments and judicial nominations below the Supreme Court could proceed with a simple majority of 51 votes.  But they left the filibuster rule intact for Supreme Court nominations and for new laws.

Harry Reid was warned of the consequences of his actions when the Senate Republicans got back the majority.  And lo and behold, it came back to haunt the Democrats when the Republicans came back into power in 2015.  In 2017, then–Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell changed the approval vote for Supreme Court nominations to a simple majority of 51 votes, and Neil Gorsuch was approved.  McConnell was also able to get Trump's judicial nominees approved.  The tit for tat was now on between the parties.

Manchin will cave on the Filibuster Rule, as will Sinema.  They have no scruples.

I will NOT comply.

Nope! Next question.
"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.

"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

The (D) after his name stands for "dishonest", "deceitful", "disgraceful" and "duplicitous", among others.

The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.

   He's a SNAKE just like Cornyn and 95% of the other Senators.
No government in the 12,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

I'd trust a fart after binge-eating Taco Bell before I trust Joe Manchin or any politician.
