(Rallying Patriots) – There appears to be at least one Democrat in the federal government with a spine and a conscience. Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has spoken out in opposition to Biden’s $1.75 trillion budget package being rammed through by his party.
Manchin asserted he has concerns about the impact of the massive spending bill on the country’s economy and the national debt.
Sen. Manchin called for a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill, asking Democrats in the House to vote on and pass the framework, and told the media, “The political games have to stop!”
In a statement at a press conference, Manchin made it clear to reporters that he would not vote in favor of the budget reconciliation plan and slammed fellow Democrats for their “shell games” and “budget gimmicks” calling it a “recipe for economic crisis.”

“To be clear, I will not support the reconciliation legislation without knowing how the bill would impact our debt and our economy in our country we won’t know that until we work through the text,” Manchin said.
“Simply put, I will not support a bill that is this consequential without thoroughly understanding the impact it will have on our national debt, our economy and the American people,” Manchin said. “Every elected representative needs to know what they are voting for and the impact it has, not only on their constituents, but the entire country.”

In a totally predictable and not at all interesting move, Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) blasted Manchin, saying that his lack of support for Biden’s “Build Back Better Act” is “anti-black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant.”

“Joe Manchin’s opposition to the Build Back Better Act is anti-Black, anti-child, anti-woman, and anti-immigrant,” the “squad” member claimed. “When we talk about transformative change, we are talking about a bill that will benefit Black, brown, Indigenous communities.”
Bush also said that Manchin “does not get to dictate the future of our country” and that she does not “trust his assessment of what our communities need the most.”
“I trust the parents in my district who can’t get to their shift without childcare,” Bush said. “I trust the scientists who have shown us what our future will look like if we fail to meaningfully address the climate crisis. I trust the patients and doctors crying out for comprehensive health coverage for every person in America.”
Manchin trusts his constituents, you know, the people who voted for him to represent them in Washington DC. Bush is a flat-out liar when she says she trusts hers. The only thing Bush is trusting in and promoting is the Democrats’ anti-American, socialist agenda.
Manchin blasted his party saying they are holding the bill “hostage” and indeed they are. The Democrats are attempting to totally transform this country and they’ll stop at nothing to accomplish that.
The Democrats have been successful in convincing millions of Americans that their agenda is actually going to help them and benefit them but it’s all a bunch of lies.
