I'm hearing Joe Manchin has torpedoed the Democratic Agenda™ again? Has it played out enough times for staunch voters to realize that it's actually working as designed? Has it not been for Manchin (and Synema), corporate Dems would be in a real trouble because they wouldn't have such a great excuse for never doing anything for the people that also goes against their corporate donors.

Here's what they promised but never got done, off the top of my head:

- $15/hour minimum wage
- Voting rights reform
- The original human infrastructure bill
- Heavily cut-down Build Back Better plan
- Codifying Roe v Wade into law

And I bet nobody even remembers that Medicare For All was also on the agenda in the beginning of the 2020 campaign. But we should not forget.
