Only one Democrat? The Democrats are truly the party of totalitarianism and oppression. From his op-ed explaining why he will vote against the “For the People Act”:
: …we now are witnessing that the fundamental right to vote has itself become overtly politicized. Today’s debate about how to best protect our right to vote and to hold elections, however, is not about finding common ground, but seeking partisan advantage. Whether it is state laws that seek to needlessly restrict voting or politicians who ignore the need to secure our elections, partisan policymaking won’t instill confidence in our democracy — it will destroy it (Gazette mail). From Bonchie: Manchin putting this marker in the ground has the left going absolutely insane, which is to be expected. Now, the Civil War is going hot. Rep. Mondaire Jones of New York responded to Manchin by accusing him of codifying Jim Crow (RedState). From Rich Lowry: The Left’s response, of course, is to imply he’s some sort of racist (National Review). One reporter juxtaposed a story highlighting Biden criticizing Manchin with the Manchin op-ed (Twitter). From Byron York: Given fact that 1) It is very, very difficult to eliminate the legislative filibuster, and 2) Democrats do not control a majority of seats in the US Senate, it is amazing that some Democrats and their allies are so upset about this. What did they expect? (Twitter).
