This isnít a parliamentary system. Senators first obligation is to represent their constituents not vote for whatever party proposes.

And how exactly could Biden have bullied Manchin without Manchin going Republican?

Thatís just BS.

On climate Manchin is way more harmful than just his vote.  Just a couple of examples, but he has single handledly kept the Federal Energy Regulatory Commissions from considering climate change when it approves pipelines and he is stopping the Fed and other agencies from dealing with climate risk.  Part of it is structural, and the committees he is on (Chair of Energy and a vote on Approps). At least on climate, if the Dems had 51 votes, they would probably be better off with it just being 50 without Manchin.

Then Biden doesn't "control" the Senate even with this guy being a Democrat, which was exactly my point!  This is boring, man.  You love Manchin and want to have 10,000 of his babies. That's fine!

And how exactly could Biden have bullied Manchin without Manchin going Republican?

Thatís just BS.

My first response was to explain what control of the senate means.

Am sorry your reading comprehension skills are limited.

Ah yes! These are your newly adopted kittens, right?  Insanely cute...sometimes I miss our cat being that little.

Yes they are sister and brother pair that we rescued out from under our neighbors sheds.  So much energy and it will be fun when they have full run of the house, as they are currently isolated due there being an older cat in the house and they havenít yet been seen by a vet.

I know NKOTB will be excited about this news

 Nancy Pelosi just announced that she will be seeking another term in Congress in 2024.

This means she will be 86 years old when her next term is up.

At this point it's impossible to any of it seriously, so she should have fun with it!
