5. Intimidating him can only backfire

His “district” constituents are heavily red.

There’s no way to threaten him... he holds all the cards. We can’t primary him.

Nor is there any guarantee that he’s the only one. The VP’s trip to Arizona makes that clear.

IMO - the current spin (along with threatening to use reconciliation) is an attempt to keep them on the reservation as long as possible while we Pres for the best compromise we can get it off a few republicans. They don’t anticipate getting the current package through.
