They Don’t Need To - This Would Just Be Nuking the Filibuster for No Reason

Manchin Shoots Down Democrats’ Talks Of Changing Filibuster For Debt Ceiling Vote | The Daily Wire

On Wednesday, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) shot down the possibility of amending the filibuster after Democrats reportedly discussed making an exemption from the rule for the debt ceiling vote.

“I truly implore both leaders…to engage, start working, work this out. There should not be a crisis,” Manchin told the press on Wednesday.

“I’ve been very, very clear where I stand, where I stand on the filibuster,” Manchin said. “I don’t have to repeat that. I think I’ve been very clear. Nothing changes. But the bottom line is we have a responsibility to be the adults. Our leadership has a responsibility to lead and that’s what I’m asking, imploring them to do.”

Unfortunately for Manchin, leading is beyond the capability of most Senators.
