Jim Hays started this petition to Governor Jim Justice

Dear Governor Justice,

Please help Joe Manchin understand that if he fails to express support for the "nuclear option" in the Senate, it is likely that Senate Republicans will block any legislation that President Joe Biden would try to pass.  That starts with the $1.9 trillion relief package that's on the table right now.  Right now, Senate Republicans think that they can rely on Joe Manchin to block an end to the filibuster, which prevents any laws from being passed without a 60 vote majority (vs. a simple 50 vote majority).  His current position encourages Senate Republicans to negotiate on this package in bad faith.  It could also allow them to continue to veto any relief aid to cities and states.  We need you to help Joe Manchin understand that he is in a position to scuttle the entire Democratic agenda and prevent Americans from getting the help they need.  

Please consider this petition and send it to anyone who may have a positive influence on Joe Manchin to get him to see that his position will hurt the Democratic party and will hurt the entire nation.
