For all of the attention that Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, is currently getting for standing up to Biden’s “Build Back Better” bill, maybe it isn’t Manchin we should be focusing on.
He’s getting the attention because he’s the only Democrat to stand against the bill, but maybe we should be wondering how much liberals actually care about this country if 49 of them were willing to destroy America’s future in an attempt to buy a few votes in the midterms.
Senator Pat Toomey, a Republican from Pennsylvania, recently appeared on Fox News to demand answers as to where the Democrat party is trying to steer the future of America. According to Breitbart, he told Fox:
I mean, I give Joe (“Macho” Manchin) a lot of credit, the amount of abuse and flack he has taken from some of his colleagues, from the left wing all over America. It’s really pretty shocking when you think about it, here’s one Democrat in the United States Senate, one Democrat, who thinks maybe it’s not a good idea to turn America into a socialist welfare state.
Maybe we should just pause here, especially at a time when we have a record-high amount of debt, inflation at [a] 40-year high, do we really want to spend many trillions more? Just, let’s have a pause, and they blow him up for that.
Toomey concluded by addressing the fact that this started off as Bernie Sanders’ bill. It’s been radically progressive since the day it was written. “Let’s be honest, this is Bernie Sanders’ bill,” the senator said. “And that’s why Bernie Sanders is so livid with Joe Manchin right now. There’s been no centrist and really, across the board, all of Joe Biden’s policies have been appeasing the radical left.”
