President Joe Biden’s administration is upset about Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) going against the Build Back Better bill, but that doesn’t stop him from voting against the bill. He and Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have been firmly against the massive spending bills that Biden and his administration have put forward, and there’s likely more Democrat support for voting against the bills than just those two Senators.
After the Congressional Budget Office’s numbers came in and they reported, “The CBO predicts that passing this measure would result in a net increase in the deficit totaling $367 billion during the 2022-2031 decade, not including any additional revenue generated by additional tax enforcement funding.”
Biden has claimed that Manchin supports the Build Back Better bill, but that’s inaccurate.
He said, “Senator Manchin has reaffirmed his support for Build Back Better financing at the level I outlined in September. Even in the face of significant Republican opposition, I believe we will bridge our differences and implement the Build Back Better plan. My team and I are continuing to work with Senator Manchin. That work will continue next week.”
Even with the revisions and passage in the House, Manchin still isn’t good with the bill.
Biden made these statements as if Manchin would agree with him and go along with it. The boldness and inability to have any self-awareness will continue Biden down the rabbit hole of destruction that he’s already on.
Manchin has gotten upset several times over the last year, especially when Democrats flex their power over the American people.
Manchin said, “Civility is gone,” in response to Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) speech on the house floor against Republicans not voting along with Democrats for raising the budget. During the speech, it was apparent that Manchin was upset in the background of the camera angle.
In response to Biden, Manchin said, “The president put out a statement. It’s his statement, not mine.”
The words have a taste of agitated retribution and for a good reason. Manchin may be one of the only sane politicians in the office on the Democrat side.
