Oh I'm happy to answer (like I have numerous times before)

What Joe Manchin said is exactly right: "Any time there's a carve out, you eat the whole turkey."

You can attempt to justify it all you want, but it's undeniable that Harry Reid introduced the nuclear option to the Senate. He made the first cut in the turkey...to say otherwise is just a lie.

So now, just as Manchin predicted, there are more hacks at the turkey. And no doubt you believe extending the nuclear option beyond judicial appointments to legislation (voter rights) is also justified.

Where does it stop? Climate change seems pretty urgent. How about COVID relief? Immigration?

Be very careful. Just like stripping GOP members of committee assignments, entering a tit-for-tat war won't end well for your side...or mine.
