Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), a conservative member of the Democratic Party, announced his support on Monday for the Keep Families Together Act, making him the final Democratic member (plus independents Angus King and Bernie Sanders) of the Senate to support the legislation. “I’m wholeheartedly opposed to any policy that allows innocent children to be separated from their parents,” the senator said in a statement. “I’m signing onto the Keep Families Together Act but I’m actively working with my Republican colleagues to find solutions to the issues that aren’t addressed in the bill.”

800k West Virginians have a pre-existing condition but right now 20 U.S. Attorneys General are suing to allow insurance companies to deny coverage to these WVians. If you're one of the 800k, send me your story so I can read it on the Senate floor. pic.twitter.com/0PfSo0Ls6o
