Every single time Biden indicates that something in his agenda is negotiable, Manchin makes another demand. Now he's attacking the child credit. As an elected official of one of the poorest states in the country, one would think he would like to hep his constituants. I guess not.

A few months ago, I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I knew that he had a thin line to walk being a Democrat in West Virginia.

I also figured he was going to do what every politician does and use his power while he had it to get some extra goodies for himself and his state.

But, now it seems that re-election protection and pork are not his primary motivation. He appears to just want to be a point of sale.

I think to put away the carrot and get out the stick. If I were Schumer, I would tell him that if he doesn't get on board by the 31st, he will not be a committee chair on the 1st.
