Democrats Attack Democrat Senator Manchin

Which Candidate Do You Support in the Republican Primaries?

Democrats and their media allies are attacking Democrat West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin because he is opposed to President Biden’s Build Back Better spending plan.

Democrat Washington Representative Pramila Jayapal, chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, blasted Manchin in a statement.

Jayapal said, “Today, Senator Manchin has betrayed his commitment not only to the President and Democrats in Congress but most importantly, to the American people.”

PBS reported on Manchin’s decision.

While Manchin is open to a smaller bill, Democrats are most outraged over his decision that will block Biden’s climate change agenda.

Other leading Democrats weighed in on Manchin as well.

“Senator Manchin’s refusal to act is infuriating,” said Democrat New Mexico Senator Martin Heinrich on Twitter.

Manchin’s decision is based on concerns about inflation being boosted even higher if Biden spends a significant amount of money via his Build Back Better plan.

The media are also slamming Manchin.

MSNBC reported on Manchin and included a New York Times story on the West Virginia Senator.

PBS reported on the cost of the climate change provisions that Manchin blocked.

With the president’s climate change agenda on hold, Biden is threatening executive action.

Democrats are furious at Manchin because they wanted to deliver on their climate change agenda for their base before the midterm elections in November.
