Senator Bernie Sanders, the socialist multimillionaire from Vermont, on Sunday accused fellow Democrat Joe Manchin (W.Va.) of sabotaging President Joe Biden.
“He has sabotaged the president’s agenda,” Sanders told ABC This Week anchor, Martha Raddatz. “The problem was that we continued to talk to Manchin like he was serious. He was not. This is a guy who’s a major recipient of fossil fuel money.”
We are thankful for Joe Manchin’s fossil fuel money, as it could be the only thing to save us from the financial ruin caused in part by Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.
If any of it’s left that is:
Sources close to the talks claim that Manchin said to Chuck Schumer, Senate Majority Leader, “unambiguously” that he wouldn’t support the Democratic economic package’s tax and climate provisions.
Manchin said last week, “no matter how extravagant the spending plans made by Congress, it was obvious to anyone who goes to a gas station or supermarket that we cannot add fuel to the inflation fire. ”
Despite all predictions, inflation continues to rise. It rose to an all-time high of 9.1% last month, surpassing all predictions.
President Biden pushes the inflationary Build Back Better agenda toward Congress despite all of its common sense. Even though Milton Friedman isn’t on the show.
Manchin sees the effect of inflation on red state voters’ homes and has decided to stop voting for it. The House version now stands at $1.75 trillion.
CNN can use the term “slimmed down” to describe a spending bill with a headline figure in excess of 13 figures.
Biden hopes to win big before November’s midterms. He might be content with less.
He left the Mideast after trying to convince the Saudis to increase oil production.
Democrats cannot get through the Senate without Manchin’s “sabotage”. This includes an extension to ObamaCare subsidies and Medicare being able to negotiate prices with drugmakers for certain drugs.
Biden’s win seems more like chump change.
