So much for Sleepy Joe packing the courts or getting rid of the Electoral College. He can’t even get a third round of stimulus checks he PROMISED to people if Democrats won the Senate passed. Pretty sure we’ll be writing about Senator Joe Manchin a LOT over the next two years.
This is gonna be fun!
BREAKING: Sen. Joe Manchin (https://t.co/EHSclJLRrQ.) says "absolutely not" to a round of $2,000 stimulus checks
Biden promised to approve $2K checks if Georgia Dems won their Senate races. Pelosi and Schumer also on board

From the Washington Post:
President-elect Joe Biden’s plans for a major new economic relief package boosting stimulus payments to $2,000 ran into possibly fatal opposition from his own party Friday as Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) said he would “absolutely not” support a new round of checks.
Womp wompity womp womp.
Manchin warned them … sheesh.
If $2k isn't approved, that'll destroy Democrats in future elections.

Well, one of them is.
Sounds like the Democrats voting in Democrats are a little worried …
Manchin is one guy.

Yeah, but he could break that 50/50 tie and in the WRONG way.
As we said, this is gonna be fun.
