Thank You Manchin The Corruption Preserver

Thank You Manchin The Corruption Preserver

Oct 17, 2021

Most press coverage right now is focusing on Sen. Joe Manchin’s efforts to gut the Democratic Party’s “Build Back Better” bill, but his efforts to gut the For The People Act might have much larger consequences for the future of the country. In this bonus “thank you” episode, learn about Senator Manchin’s effort to maintain Congressional corruption in our election systems before Jen and Husband Joe thank producers and respond to their feedback, much of it about BIF: The Infrastructure Bill.
