Manchin and Sinema have stated they won’t vote to get rid of the filibuster. So let’s suspend it instead on any measure designed to protect a constitutional right, such as the right to vote, especially where GOP majorities in states are suppressing such inalienable rights.

It’s important to understand that Manchin and Sinema don’t have to “end” the filibuster altogether, which they apparently don’t want to do. They can suspend it in cases of bills that expand democracy. This was done already for judges, justices, and presidential appointees. https://t.co/3i4Ikltc2O

“Despite Manchin’s insistence on an $11 minimum wage, according to MIT’s living wage calculator, even a $15 minimum wage would only provide a living wage for single West Virginians without children.” $11 is not enough. It's time for $15/hr! https://t.co/B2TWUZDJSN

Joe Manchin voted yes on Brett Kavanaugh but is voting no on Neera Tanden. Manchin will explain this is totally fair, since Kavanaugh is not a woman of color. And He never accused Manchin’s daughter of price gouging. When she was price gouging. https://t.co/fCyYHLAkNw

So, if Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, 47 other Dem senators, and every Democratic House member supports something that you like, but Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema do not, then your beef isn't with "Biden," "Schumer" or "The Democrats." It's with Manchin and Sinema.

Agree with every word of this. But, as Ezra notes, the reluctance to get rid of the filibuster comes from Joe Manchin and maybe a handful of other Senate Dems. From what I’ve heard, most of the caucus is on board. https://t.co/CCD2Ra41bn

Today is #NationalReligiousFreedomDay. I was encouraged to read that the @USCIRF chair, @G_Manchin, wife of @Sen_JoeManchin, said that President-elect @JoeBiden’s administration will stand just as strong for religious freedom as the Trump Administration. https://t.co/TfeRHvRIdP

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, incoming Democratic chair of the Energy Committee, has a clear message as his party takes control of the chamber and pushes an aggressive agenda: I'm sticking with bipartisanship. https://t.co/lwzJc7C4Ju

We should stop calling people like Manchin "moderates." The word doesn't mean anything useful and can make people seem "reasonable" and "level-headed" compared to those further left, even if they're not. Instead, call them "conservative Democrats." More accurate and informative.

I talked for a good bit w/ @SenSherrodBrown, incoming Banking Cmte Chairman, about finagling around the filibuster if GOP obstructs again, the looming housing crisis & how that viral jokey "bribe Manchin" tweet has some real-world merit to it re: earmarks https://t.co/T9pHq77boS

Manchin also slams Hawley and Cruz on @FiringLineShow - and says the 14th amendment, section 3, should be considered. https://t.co/48W6ahHg36

Manchin appears to suggest people in the Capitol may have been coordinating w/ rioters outside on Jan. 6. "Look at the timing.... The insurrection ... happened exactly at the time we were voting.... I think there might be a lot more coming out that might be much more damning."

"Ted’s a very bright individual and I get along fine with Ted," said Manchin. "But what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities."

The tricky thing for Democrats about using reconciliation is they would have almost no room for error They could not lose a single Senator and only 5 House members Pretty much everyone from AOC to Manchin has to agree If Democrats fail they shoulder all the political blame https://t.co/XHPDC1WU3Y

Manchin thinks he's President. First he seemed to veto $2,000 checks. Now he's saying they will not convict Trump in the Senate, so the House shouldn't bother impeaching him. If @JoeBiden lets him Manchin will be de facto President and he is de facto Republican. Here we go again.
