Joe Manchin signals that he’s in support of massive ‘infrastructure’ spending

After Democrats secured razor-thin majorities in both chambers of Congress, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) became an unlikely ally to the GOP because of his moderate views, which is especially helpful given how Democrats seem to continuously attempt to push radically progressive legislation on Americans.

But according to the Washington Examiner, Manchin might not be the moderate that he claims to be, at least not on certain economic issues, as was revealed over the weekend when he seemingly agreed with the “two-track” approach to passing a massive infrastructure deal — one being a traditional “hard” infrastructure package and the other containing the Democrats’ new definition of infrastructure. 

His comments came in the wake of President Joe Biden kicking a proverbial hornet’s nest when, after bragging about reaching a bipartisan infrastructure deal, he claimed he wouldn’t sign it unless a “tandem” bill filled with Democrats’ wish-list items — to the tune of another $4 trillion — was also passed.

In a rare development, Biden was forced to issued a statement of clarification after Republicans threatened to sink the entire deal after feeling as though they’d been tricked.

“My comments also created the impression that I was issuing a veto threat on the very plan I had just agreed to, which was certainly not my intent,” Biden’s statement over the weekend read. “I intend to pursue the passage of that plan, which Democrats and Republicans agreed to on Thursday, with vigor.”

Manchin, on the other hand, told This Week with George Stephanopoulos co-host Jonathan Karl on Sunday that he’s interested in pursuing both bills.

“We have two tracks. And that’s exactly what I believe is going to happen. And we’ve worked on the one track. We’re going to work on the second track. There’s an awful lot of need. And everything they talked about is something that we need,” Manchin said.

According to The Hill, on Tuesday, Manchin dug in, revealing that he’s in support of a much larger, Democratic-only infrastructure bill that would be passed through the reconciliation process, allowing Democrats to bypass the 60-vote Senate filibuster obstacle.

“We’re going to have to work it through reconciliation, which I’ve agreed that that can be done. I just haven’t agreed on the amount, because I haven’t seen everything that everyone is wanting to put in the bill,” Manchin said.

Hopefully Manchin is one of the few dems with a brain. If he follows Biden then he is toast. I hope he realilzes that his wifes cushy job isn’t worth loosing his seat next election.

Jesse….Mr. Manchin is no leader compared to the late Robert C. B^y^r^d, who was my Senator for years…. I don’t care what they say about Sen. B^y^r^d, he got a lot done for West Virginians and the state…. If Mr. Manchin wants to keep his seat, he needs to vote against the infrastructure bill and all the other garbage coming from the WH and the dems….

Manchin is a wind vane. If you don’t believe it, check out his index finger. I’ll guarantee you it is wet from him sticking it in his mouth, and holding it up in the air to see which way the wind is blowing. He wavers and waffles on every important issue, and usually joins in with the other insane dems.

Typical lefties say one thing do something different. We have to get Biden out of office. I pray we take the House back and flip some seats in the senate to get control back and then impeach Biden and Harris. Both are ruining our America.

Sen. Manchin is just another mindless Democrat. He talks and talks and talks the right words, but falls into LOCKSTEP with the Democrats, EVERY TIME! His “word” is meaningless!

That’s Manchin, flip-flop just to keep his name in the highlights. Guess he thinks that will get reelected.

Manchin does this REPEATEDLY!!!! He’s like Nancy pulling the football stunt on Charlie Brown. Don’t know WHY anyone would ever count on him to follow through, after all he is a democrat and they are all liars! He has nothing else to offer but like all the rest of the left he has to have something to make people pay attention to him!

I’ve written this before: Manchin is a DemocRAT politician!! He talks a great game about being a moderate but then when the chips are down (to vote), he goes along with all the other corrupt Dems!! They’re liars, cheaters, corrupt, unethical, immoral hypocrites!!

Hopefully, Manchin is smart enough not to follow the other Democrats into the abyss. Biden is a mindless fool. Pelosi is guilty of treason. Schumer is an idiot. If Manchin wants to continue being an American he will resist the Democrat fools lunacy.
