Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) for effectively blocking President Biden's agenda by refusing to abolish the filibuster, even going so far as to ask conservative activists to "flood" the Democratic centrists with "messages of gratitude," Insider reported on Friday.

The video, taken by Democratic activist Lauren Windsor at a June 29 Patriot Voices event, per Insider, includes appearances from former Republican Sen. Rick Santorum and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), among others.
For his part, Biggs concedes that without the filibuster, which has proven itself a huge barrier to much of Biden's agenda, "we would be dead meat.
But thank goodness for Sinema and Joe Manchin.".
Santorum later echoes Donalds' charge, imploring all attendees to "call Joe Manchin and say thank you.
Call Kyrsten Sinema and say thank you." »
