The ultra left wing of the Democrat party is drooling at the possibility of transforming the American political system under a Biden administration.
But they just got some bad news from someone in their own camp.
Senator Joe Manchin, an influential Democrat from West Virginia, is putting his foot down on the more radical goals of the left.
“I commit to you tonight, and I commit to all of your viewers and everyone else that’s watching,” said Manchin during a recent interview. “I want to allay those fears, I want to rest those fears for you right now. Because when they talk about, whether it be packing the courts or ending the filibuster, I will not vote to do that. I will not vote to pack the courts. I think — and I will not vote to end the filibuster.”
Manchin said point blank he won’t support an effort to add justices to the Supreme Court:
I will not be the 50th Democrat voting to end that filibuster or to basically stack the court, and in all the other things you’re hearing about, Bret, also, defund the police. I don’t know of any of the Democrats in the caucus that are for defunding the police. We’re not for that whatsoever. And when they talk about basically, Medicare for all, we can’t even pay for Medicare for some. It doesn’t make any sense at all.
