    is going to pursue Federal relief for Texans having to pay thousands in power bills from the week-long deep-freeze? That was a rhetorical question, of course. He doesn't give a shit.

    Thanks for pointing that out, I wasn't aware of Manchin's connection to the Epipen mess. Honestly, I could do without seeing him mentioned in news stories, he's shaping up to be a royal pain in the ass.

    it's much more personal than that. He's still miffed at her for the heavy criticism of his daughter (Heather Bresch) over Mylan Pharma's EpiPen price gouging scandal. She was CEO of Mylan when that all hit the news and Tanden was especially critical of the way that Mylan was blatantly seeking to extract extreme profits from patients' dependence of the EpiPen for their survival. This is pure personal grudge on Manchin's part, as you can tell by him supporting Deb Haaland, even though he might have more actual political reasons to oppose her (i.e., the coal lobby.) Not that he can't be or isn't sexist and racist (maybe, maybe not), but the Tanden thing is not a good example.
