    Jeanne Shaheen who along with Manchin shot down the $15 minimum wage proposal. Even the Republican Party has members like that where they vote Democrat on certain issues.

    You can’t shyt on those members without going against your own party and giving the other side ammunition to take that particular seat.

    Manchin is trending on Twitter, and being called out for his bullshyt

    What Manchin got in the deal to move forward on Covid-19 stimulus

    From CNN's Manu Raju

    Sen. Joe Manchin was the only Democratic senator who did not sign off on the jobless benefits deal at the beginning of the day, prompting a furious lobbying effort from the Democratic leadership, the White House and rank-and-file senators to get him on board.

    Moments ago, two Democratic aides with knowledge of the negotiations told CNN that a deal has been reached.

    Senate Democrats will now offer an amendment to extend the enhanced Unemployment Insurance program through Sept. 6 at $300 a week.

    The main things that Manchin got: A cap on who is eligible to write off $10,200 in jobless benefits. Under the deal, Democrats agreed to ensure that households with incomes under $150,000 were only eligible to deduct that amount from their taxes.

    The latest Senate version calls for providing a $300 a week federal enhancement, rather than the $400 passed by the House last week — but the extra cash will run until Sept. 6, rather than ending Aug. 29.

    Thugs have no problem taking them gloves off when they are in a position of power. Manchin is a fakkit. I understand but what is the point of having power if you're just going to concede and sit on your hands. The other side clearly doesn't feel that way.

    They never told us this when they were asking people to vote for the Georgia senators tho

    Do you think a republican senator with Liberal biases ( Mitt Romney) would be allowed to hold the party hostage like Manchin

    Dude literally has his own party hostage and there ain’t shyt they can do about it as he’s labeled as a Democrat. Going after him publicly benefits Republicans and gives them ammunition to take his seat.

    Don’t think twice that they won’t smell blood and gun for his seat even with his tendencies to vote along their lines.

    Her logic isn't bad, and she has increased minimum wage as a governor.

    Why are the Democrats (other than the Joe Manchin types) being blamed for this when it has 0 Republican voted and is thus dead on arrival?

    Republicans only agreed to pass the stimulus back then because Trump was president and it was an election year. Ilhan Omar is sounding like Glenn Greenwald or Jimmy Dore now

    Because everybody knew Republicans wanted no part of a stimulus bill which is how Democrats were able to take those two GA seats.

    Nothing they are doing is surprising in the slightest. The expectations was that Democrats could force the tie and get Harris to be the tiebreaker.

    So you think they should have said, don't vote because it don't really matter because of Joe Mancin? You do know that a Republican controlled senate would pass no stimulus at all as long as Biden was president right? Logic breh, logic.

    And now a member of their own party is holding them hostage and preventing the tiebreaker from happening.
