Democrat Missouri Representative Cori Bush used the race card to slam Senator Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) opposition to the reconciliation bill being debated in Congress.
Bush didn’t hold back at all and unleashed the race card against Manchin in a statement, saying, “Joe Manchin’s opposition to the Build Back Better Act is anti-Black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant.”

Bush is outraged Manchin refuses to vote for President Biden’s $1.75 trillion reconciliation budget bill.
Manchin refused to back the bill because of its unknown consequences on the federal debt and on Americans, saying, “If I can’t go home and explain it, I can’t vote for it, and if I can, I will.”
Manchin added, “For example, how can I in good conscious vote for a bill that proposes massive expansion of social programs when vital programs like Social Security and Medicare face insolvency and benefits….”
Sen. Joe Manchin is again balking at Democrats' massive trillion-dollar spending spree without knowing what impact it will have on the debt. https://t.co/ZimhzFVoTn

Tossing the race card is the typical response from Democrats when they don’t get their way and Bush is following that long tradition.
Important topics like a huge spending plan should be debated on its merits and not on race.
Manchin must ignore the race card and do what’s right and just say no to Bush and Biden’s radical spending plan.
