GOP is almost certain to take the House so that even if the Dems hold the Senate, anything passed there gets voted down in the House. If the GOP takes the Senate, anything passing both houses gets vetoed by Biden and there aren't enough votes to over-ride it. It's a sorry state of affairs these days that there is almost zero bipartisanship anymore. When or how this changes is beyond me.
Doesn't matter what happens in the Senate, Biden has lost Sinema and Manchin is livid at him so unless they float a bill that is moderate it's a no go. To quote Manchin "this country needs a moderation" instead the crazies in far left are running the show. Let us start with a common sense immigration plan instead of just letting anyone walk in and go from there.
I think Sinema now sees the writing on the wall. I expect her to move strongly center left. Manchin.....Well Manchin has an issue. He comes from a state so dirt poor they rely on federal handouts, but they all want to pretend to be Republican. So he blusters, but delivers the social funds.
