Manchin Insists He Isn’t “Roadblock” To Dem Agenda

“I’m not a roadblock at all. The best politics is good government. I can’t believe that people believe that if you just do it my way, that will give us the momentum to get through the next election.”

“We won’t give this system a chance to work. I am not going to be part of blowing up this senate of ours or basically this democracy of ours or the republic that we have.”

“The House was designed to be hot as a firecracker, we were designed to cool off, and that’s the Founding Fathers.

“It was a brilliant, brilliant strategy they looked at, so why can’t we try to make this work?” – Sen. Joe Manchin, today on CNN.

The RNC was quick to endorse Manchin’s take.
