Joe Biden has been angling for nearly a year to pass his bloated, socialist spending bill. He’s been so determined to make it law, many believe he’s neglected numerous crises that’s hit the country (most of which he started).
But Biden’s dreams definitively came crashing down when moderate Sen. Joe Manchin caught his own party by surprise and flat out refused to support it on Fox News Sunday.
Manchin was willing to negotiate to bring down the price tag (which experts predicted could cost over $4 trillion). But old Joe and the radical left refused to play ball. They claimed they brought the price down, but only limited how long the programs would last when even the CBO knew they were meant to be permanent.
So, Manchin told the nation he will not vote for a plan that would increase inflation. Naturally, the progressive left has come out with knives drawn for the West Virginia senator.
From Fox News:
Let’s be clear: Manchin’s excuse is bull—-,” Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., tweeted…
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who caucuses with Democrats, said Manchin has “a lot of explaining to do,” and that he still wants the legislation to be brought forward for a floor vote so that Manchin can “vote no in front of the whole world.”
Many on the right are saying America dodged a bullet, thanks to a Democrat senator from Trump country. Joe Manchin represents a state that went for Trump in 2016 and 2020. Not only that, but it is a state that relies on coal and other industries under fire by Joe Biden and his radical agenda.
Manchin made the obvious—but tough—choice to reject Biden’s socialist takeover of the U.S. economy. For that, numerous left-wing Democrats came out against Manchin. Ilhan Omar, along with other members of the “squad,” slandered the man who was looking out for working Americans.
Bernie Sanders—whose former aides are essentially running the White House—blasted Manchin for rejecting Biden’s agenda. The socialist called for a Senate vote on the bill anyway, to force Manchin to vote against it openly. If he did that, Manchin would be even more of hero to anti-Biden Americans.

No surprise, though, Manchin told Bernie to bring it on—he’s more than happy to be on the record opposing this monstrosity.
The White House also came out attacking Manchin, but it was Jen Psaki doing the dirty work. The press secretary struck a very partisan tone when she criticized Manchin’s decision, claiming he was being dishonest and changing positions. Oddly, she seemed to not be speaking on behalf of the “president,” but herself.
But, as we all know, what’s bad for Democrats seems to be good for America. With Biden’s “Build Back Better” bill dead in the water, we don’t have to worry about highers taxes, job-killing regulation, and increased welfare.
