14. I think Manchin remembers when in 2017 pendejo called for eliminating the filibuster, which many

of us forget. So I'm with you, I think so, too.

The filibuster seems archaic and was based on a racist deal, but it has also been considered by democracy experts to be a guardrail norm that has required more deliberation and has, surprisingly, led to eventual bipartisanship bill passage.

The 117th is part of a long game, and though he goes for deliberation (I think he's trying to be thoughtful), he's a Democrat at vote time.
