Not technically true. If Manchin were a Repugnicant, then McConnell would have a majority and have control of the Senate again.

Mitch is one person who's death I wouldn't mourn. Hell, I'd likely throw a party.

The powers-that-be have never accepted idealistic dreamers - the price of your dream is martydom. (an FBI hit)
Freedom of speech, expression, thought - only tolerated to a point

Here are the exact words of King, spoken in 1963, on our situation today. As you read this, bear in mind that Kirsten Sinema had the audacity to post “Today we remember the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. #MLKDay” on Twitter….

‘I think the tragedy is that we have a Congress with a Senate that has a minority of misguided senators who will use the filibuster to keep the majority of people from even voting. They won’t let the majority senators vote. And certainly they wouldn’t want the majority of people to vote, because they know they do not represent the majority of the American people. In fact, they represent, in their own states, a very small minority.”
