“What goes around comes around.” That’s the message for Democrats from Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV). He also pinned the breakdown in Senate Decorum on former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said Thursday that he would not join a Democratic filibuster of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, arguing that the integrity of the Senate needs to be preserved.

Manchin, a conservative Democrat and key vote, told Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric that Senate decorum needs to be preserved and that it started to fall apart in 2013 when then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid instituted the so-called nuclear option.

“That’s not what the Founding Fathers decided for this body. This body’s a very unique body, a very deliberate body, supposed to be the teapot cooling the tea off,” Manchin said.

Manchin’s cautionary message will probably fall on deaf ears. Chuck Schumer as the Democrat leader in the Senate appears to be following in the footsteps of his corrupt predecessor.
