Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) made in clear in an interview published Monday that he has no plans to support Democrats who want to take a page out of the GOP playbook by obstructing the new Republican majority.
“That’s bullshi—…. I’m not going to put up with that,” Manchin told Politico when discussing the prospect of Democrats blocking the Republican agenda over the next two years.
Manchin didn’t appear to be alone either. Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) also talked about the need to get something done.
“Our caucus needs to take a hard look at the way we do things and make sure we are putting the policy issues first before politics,” McCaskill told Politico. “The habit we got into in doing nothing, no one was happy with that. I hope that we never go back to that.”
