Sen. Joe Manchin hails from a Trump state. Because of this, he’s long opposed his party’s far-left agenda. Until last month.
He agreed to help Chuck Schumer pass a massive tax-and-spend bill that will do nothing to help inflation. Why would he do this?
Because he was able to negotiate a deal where a gas pipeline would be built in West Virginia, something he thought would win over voters back home.
But, despite surrendering to the radical left to get what he wants, Manchin was stabbed in the back by his own party.
From The Western Journal:
House Democrats were also angry over being excluded from the negotiations with Manchin.
Thus, they do not plan to honor the agreement…
“Handshake deals made by others in closed rooms do not dictate how I vote, and we sure as hell don’t owe Joe Manchin anything now. He and his fossil fuel donors already got far too much in the IRA … and we will vote this dirty deal down, one way or another.”
Power-hungry socialists in the House are vowing to kill the very deal Manchin made to get his support of Biden’s massive spending bill.
The deal would pave the way for a pipeline to West Virginia. Pipelines are safe, efficient means of transporting fuel.
But, as we all know, progressives oppose anything safe, reasonable, and profitable. So, far-left Democrats in the House are stabbing Manchin in the back, vowing to kill this deal one way or another.
Good job, Manchin! You betrayed West Virginia, taxpayers, conservatives, and basic human decency.
For what? Oh, that’s right, nothing.
What did Manchin get? A horrible approval rating.
Even mainstream liberal outlets are saying “no one likes” Manchin. Fewer people have positive feelings toward him than Liz Cheney.
The only reason he still has a job is because he’s not up for re-election this year. But that doesn’t mean he won’t suffer for this.
If you lose the support of your own people, you have no clout in D.C. You might as well pack your bags.
I’ll hold the door open for him, on his way out.
- Manchin betrayed Americans over a deal for a WV pipeline.
- House Democrats have vowed to nuke his deal, leaving him with nothing.
- Manchin supported a massive spending bill that will raise taxes and increase inflation.
