Silly. Joe Manchin is now the chair of every committee. https://t.co/HbtdYGTu7F— Matt Stoller (@matthewstoller) January 6, 2021
Matt Stoller is right.
Because of the one vote margin in the Senate, Joe Manchin's ego, and the needs of his campaign donors, will be driving the Senate Agenda.
The Dems should call him out early and often.
Better to call his bluff, and have an excuse for nothing getting done, than to acquiesce, and suffer the consequences of bad policy and worse politics.
