Setting up a separate thread for this, because I think we're going to hear about it for years to come.
Manchin and Sinema are not the only Democrats who will be unelectible if the plan for reparations goes through :
If Manchin does not find a way to stop this from happening, then he can never be re-elected as a Democrat.
The lefties think they may be able to extract additional concessions from Manchin by setting up these straw dogs: i.e., "what will you give us in exchange for removing the reparations authorization from the spending plan"
Manchin can turn this around, and refuse to vote for any additional spending, unless the legislative language includes a ban on reparations.
That's why yesterday I speculated that Joe Bidenstan and Gin Socky have abandoned the idea of passing their build back socialist plan. Instead, they appear to have decided that virtue signalling is more important than actually spending the money.
The "logic" in the Democrats abandoning their plans for increased entitlements is that we're probably close to default on the Federal debt, which will cause a deep economic recession, requiring deep cuts in existing entitlements, as well as the termination of all the proposed new entitlements.
