Bat Manchin Begins

King-makers

Sen. Joe Manchin says he’d ‘absolutely’ oppose Biden’s stimulus checks, then swiftly walks it back after stocks tank

I’m not sure Manchin as king-maker should count as claim chowder, but it totally is proof that he’s gonna be a Lieberman-style pain in the ass.

I don’t think we need to try to get rid of him so much as we need to elect more Democratic Senators so that we don’t need him. Primary him and we end up with a Republican and #MoscowMitch’s paw on the gavel.

    I do not remember who pointed this out recently, but Manchin has managed to get elected to his seat despite it getting no deep Trump country (something like by +40). We’re not getting a lefty in there any time soon. As you said, we just need more elsewhere. Then, because he’s not a nutcase rightwinger, he’s a plus.

  2. I swear Marc Cuban(1) and Paul Krugman(2) need to come to congress and schools some of these folks on how a goddanmed economy dominated by consumer spending works. With baseball bats if need be.

    When Wall Street tanks because you’re threatening to pull the rug out from under the MAIN DRIVER OF THE ECONOMY you seriously need some remedial edumacation on how the economy works…

    1)Cuban is bad in many many ways, but he’s always been loud about where all his fellow billionaire’s money really comes from, and it aint’ their stupendous wealth creation abilities, but money flowing up from the bottom.

    2) Krugman has a brilliant one-line explanation of how the economy works, I remember this from the last economic crisis where he was vailiantly battling the Austerians:

    Everyone’s income is someone else’s spending. So when everyone stops spending, everyone suffers.

    Exactly, when the middle class thrives, so does Wall St.
