    Default Republicans slap down Manchinís voting rights compromise

    Republicans pushed back against Joe Manchinís compromise proposal on a voting rights bill, which the Democratic senator laid out in a memo to colleagues this week. Manchinís bill would include Republican demands like requiring voter ID and allowing voter purges, but Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell said the proposal was still ďan assault on the fundamental idea that states, not the federal government, should decide how to run their own electionsĒ.

    If Manchin and Sinema behave, we don't need pachys.
    We've got our lovely Miss Kamala to pick up the ball.

    DINOs drive me bananas more that RINO's do the pachys, probably.

    I am surprised Dems tolerate Manchin. Even the Republicans don't respect Manchin.

    States should not control voting for federal offices.

    Dems don't tolerate Manchin willingly.

    Republicans from a BLOOD RED state vote for him despite the phony [D] after his name, so that's that.
    If they didn't vote for him, they'd vote for an official pachy instead.
