    Manchin is the only democratic member of the Koch funded Alec.

    He also is rumored to have been the one behind "Democrats for Underwood" a group designed to strip away democratic votes from a very populist WV democratic candidate for governor who defeated him in the primaries, and eventually lost to a coal company favored candidate.

    Manchin is doing this because he believes if we only appease the corporate overlords enough they will trickle down jobs and prosperity on us.

    It's a mindset in WV that extends back to the paternalistic way the coal companies originially brought and treated workers here.
