Sen. Joe Manchin buckled under the pressure earlier this year. After vowing to stop Biden’s reckless agenda, he agreed to a modified version of Joe’s terrible spending plan. That did not go over well with folks back home in West Virginia, especially after his side deal to build a pipeline fell through.
It seems Manchin’s learned his lesson. You cannot make deals with the radical left. They will take your goodwill and stab you in the back. And now, it looks like the moderate is back to spitting fire against Biden and his socialist cronies.
From the Conservative Brief:
During an interview on MSNBC, host Stephanie Ruhle tried pushing Manchin on why he won’t support radical proposals…
“We already spent how many trillions of dollars attending to a lot of the needs. How much more can we afford. You want more debt. I looked this morning, we’re at $28.5 trillion of debt. How much more can we add on and pass onto your children, the next generation? We’ve always said, we’re writing checks our kids can’t cash and it is a shame to put the burden. Let’s consider that,” Manchin added.
Manchin left the liberal MSNBC host stunned when he blasted the left’s reckless spending agenda. The moderate senator criticized Democrats for wanting to spend billions and trillions in money they don’t have.
He explained that our national debt, also known as the deficit, is over $28 trillion. Where are we going to find the money to pay that off? He said that this massive burden will be put on our children’s shoulders.
And they won’t be able to pay it.
Manchin rebuked Biden and his party for “writing checks our kids can’t cash.” This debt has to be paid somehow, by someone. But the decrepit Democrats in Congress today know they’ll be long dead before these particular chickens come home to roost.
Most experts know that Social Security won’t be around by the time young people today retire. They’ll be forced to pay back all the spending their parents and grandparents enjoyed. But who will that generation (which will include anyone 40 or younger today) survive without the “social security net”?
Not well, it seems.
Yet Democrats have no plan for paying off $500 billion in student loans. Or billions given to Ukraine or other countries. Or the billions in “COVID relief” that were used as kickbacks for their liberal buddies.
And it seems Manchin is done playing their games. Too bad he didn’t feel that way over the summer, when his vote helped Democrats stave off a red wave. Manchin isn’t calling himself a liberal or a conservative. But if he is really going to help Americans, he is going to have to find a way to work with the GOP.
If he has any brains at all, he’d jump ship immediately.
- Joe Manchin blasted Biden and Democrats over reckless spending.
- He said he refused to “write checks our kids can’t cash.”
- Manchin appears to be returning to his anti-spending stance, after supporting Biden’s spending bills.
