Manchin on Eliminating Filibuster: I’m Not Going To Be Part of ‘Blowing up This Senate’

‘The best politics is good government’

EXCERPT:

MANCHIN: "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, but when you do something that everyone tags on to, and I’ve seen good things happen, that people voted against it and took credit for it when they went back home. 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.”
