Last night Senator Joe Manchin, who is currently the only democrat holding statewide office in West Virginia, was interviewed by Bret Baier. The highlight in my opinion was when Baier asked about putting principle over party. Baier reminded Manchin that President Biden lost every West Virginia county in last year’s presidential election. Joe Manchin had no problem with the question:
“I’m here because of West Virginia,” Manchin said. “I’m here because of every person in West Virginia. I love my state as much as anything in the world, not quite as much as my family, but not far behind. I would do anything for my state of West Virginia.”
Manchin has never changed. He is a man of conviction. What has changed is the democratic party. It is in the hands of the radical left. With the election of Joe Biden the nation has been turned upside down. The nation's borders are wide open, crime is rising in our cities, inflation is on the horizon and the radicals in charge are committed to indoctrinating the US military and our children. They intend to overcome their narrow majority in the House and a flat footed tie in the Senate by using "reconciliation" , which they somehow get two shots at and of course, changing the rules. Only one thing has slowed them down - the courage of Senators Manchin and Sinema.
Currently democrats are running a scam where Republicans work with the president on a bipartisan infrastructure bill (evidently for show) and then democrats pass another infrastructure bill via "reconciliation" giving them everything they wanted in the first place. It is shameless and assumes that the American people are totally stupid. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has vowed that her chamber will not take up the bi-partisan bill until the Senate passes the great big radical democrat gravy bill. (AKA the big whopper)
The good news is that Joe Manchin stood up and said "I don't think I can support a rumored House Democratic infrastructure bill costing between $4 trillion and $6 trillion. “That seems to me just totally out of the ballpark.”
