It appears that only 49 senators voted for codification. Even if all the Dems, Collins and Murkowski voted for it, it needed 60 votes.

Is there a way Biden could codify it with an EO?


Any dem who voted against it should be ashamed.


I'm guessing it was Manchin


That would be my bet.

I was also hoping Collins and/or Murkowski would vote for it, and thought at least one of them would.
