Super slimy. I'd like to see Manchin/Sinema respond.

Like it or not, we still need Manchin and Sinema to deny Moscow Mitch the position of majority leader.
The position of majority leader only has power because it's been allowed to have power. Unlike Speaker of the House, it's not a constitutional office. The ability of the majority leader to unilaterally block legislation from even coming to a vote derives from him being give priority recognition by the Vice President.

But the VP can simply...not do that. Priority recognition was invented by Vice President John Nance Garner in 1937. Without it, the Senate majority leader would no longer have any real power. They would still be the chosen leader of the majority caucus, but they would no longer be able to dictate what gets voted on.

Love how these stupid f***s think they are being soooooo sneaky, when everybody can tell because it's moronically obvious what they are doing.

Literally exactly like our poorly covert alt right s*** posters here.
This is my signature. You read my signature. It sucked.
