BREAKING: Joe Biden Gets Bad News – Top Senator Betrays Him

President Joe Biden is getting bad news from a top Democrat Senator.

According to Fox News, “Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he opposed Congress alone creating the new state and he believes, like Republicans have argued, that statehood for the nation’s capital needs to be done through a constitutional amendment.”

Fox News called it a “big roadblock” to the Democrats’ “quest to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state.”

“If Congress wants to make D.C. a state, it should propose a constitutional amendment,” said Manchin. “It should propose a constitutional amendment and let the people of America vote.”

The likelihood of D.C. becoming a state is small unless the Democrats kill the filibuster. Statehood has “tough shot of becoming a reality because as long as the legislative filibuster is in place the proposal would require 60 votes to advance,” reports Fox News.

  1. I would say he knows how we the people of WV feel about all of bidens crap. Usually he totes the line, as he has done over the years…..But every now and then he really fools us and does the right thing. So for now I say good job,BUT keep it up joe.

  2. No more states’ constitutional amendment to set the number of seats on the supreme court at 9 and to make tax increases only when congresspersons cut their salary by 10% for every 3% increase plus term limits of 4 years for any elected office in the country. I t should be a felony to vote to make any article or proposal into a law, rule or regulation that they have not PERSONALY read.
