"Only two of them are willing to publicly defend the institution, and I want to, you know, say to both Senator Manchin and Senator Sinema, I admire their – the courage in defending the Senate as an institution, and, basically, I guess, saying you don’t change the rules to try to win the game. For them to win the game, they need to win more seats, and I’ve been here, Guy, when they did have 60. They had 60 the first two years of President Obama, they could do pretty much what they wanted to do, and they did. Well, they don’t have 60 now. They don’t have a mandate. And breaking the rules of the Senate to achieve a short-term partisan advantage is bad for America, bad for the Senate, and shouldn’t be done. And hopefully, thanks to these two courageous Democratic senators, it won’t be done," McConnell said.
