Maybe the Party bosses are putting out the word to give on the $5 Billion for the wall this year, to take the issue away for the election.

Time to go for $10 billion?

The citizens want the border secured and the laws enforced.

"..he supports funding $5 billion.."

This is a Libtard BS number. That Indiana Senator claimed he would go for the same lowball #. Give it $30 billion or go home.

He’s running to the right to get elected. Need to get his vote locked in before the midterms.

His GOP opponent needs to squawk about getting a vote before November. But GOP Establishment can be a problem.

It’s not just the dam wall, it’s the lottery and chain migration as well. If you don’t stop that, the wall is just pissing in the wind

And then AFTER the election, Manchin will change his mind and vote NO!

That's what he does.

A BS declaration just like Donnelly In Indiana. Notice he is not saying he’s voting for Kavanaugh. He knows he will probably not have to vote on wall funding before the mid terms because of Ryan.

Mancin is against the wall. He will vote for it. $5 billion? It’s as if he’s throwing Trump a bone that will be accepted.

The rat BS argument is that a wall won’t work and it’s thereofre a waste of money (as if they care about wasting money). If those arguments are valid, how can you vote for any money at all. If those arguments are not true, why not just find the whole thing?

I think Manchin will pull a Shelby and switch parties this time if he is re-eelected.

They vote yes to save themselves in November, then the Dems get control of the House and the money is never appropriated. That’s their goal (hope).

The dems can let 8 senators give Trump everything he wants they only need 41 votes to stop anything. Of course moron Trump and the traitor republicans ignore the fact that spending bills, i.e., budgets cannot be filibustered. Dems can’t stop anything in a budget. The turtle can give Trump all the money he wants for a wall and the dems can’t do a thing about it.

Not so much. Manchin knows he’s likely going to be voted out.. only chance he has is to get on board with Trump’s agenda at least until the election.

He’ll buck his party to keep his seat if he can

I will wager you there are members of Trump’s own party that will NOT fund the wall.
