One thought on “Co-equal branches of government

  1. de MOCK racy says:

    “If Democrats eliminate the filibuster, there is one senator who would have an outsized impact in the 50-50 chamber on issues that could reshape the nation’s future: infrastructure, immigration, gun laws and voting rights. That senator is Joe Manchin III of West Virginia,” the New York Times reports. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/27/us/politics/joe-manchin.html
    “There is also a senator whose opposition to eliminating the filibuster is a significant reason it may never happen. That senator, too, is Mr. Manchin.”
    Said Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE): “He should want to get rid of the filibuster because he suddenly becomes the most powerful person in this place — he’s the 50th vote on everything.”
