American people want affordable electricityWith Manchin's known love affair with the coal industry.., he seems more likely to have his own agenda in mind. Sanders summed up those hold outs quite well. IMO
"So my concern with Mr. Manchin is not so much what his views are -- I disagree with them -- but it is that it is wrong, is really not playing fair, that one or two people think that they should be able to stop what 48 members of the Democratic caucus want, what the American people want, what the President of the United States wants," Sanders said.
He added: "So, Sen. Manchin has a right to fight for his point of view, has not only a right to be heard, he has a right to get some compromises. He's a member of the Senate. But two people do not have the right to sabotage what 48 want, and what the President of the United States wants. That to me is wrong."
Rep. Ro Khanna had a suggestion for President Joe Biden on a private conference call earlier this week: Have Sens. Joe Manchin and Bernie Sanders sit in the same room and try to cut a deal on the Democratic Party's massive social safety net expansion.www.cnn.com
