Climate Cult Democrats Super Upset Manchin Bails On ‘Climate Change’ Legislation

I’m betting he heard a lot of negative comments from his West Virginia constituents

Manchin torpedoes Democrats’ hopes for passing sweeping climate action and tax hikes

Sen. Joe Manchin on Thursday dealt a devastating blow to Democrats’ hopes for sweeping legislative action this year, telling Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and his staff “unequivocally” that he won’t support the climate or tax provisions of a Democratic economic package, two sources familiar with the talks tell CNN.

The two had been negotiating for months, and Schumer, a New York Democrat, had made a number of concessions to pare back the climate provisions to appease Manchin, whose support is critical in an evenly decided Senate.

In a Friday radio interview, Manchin disputed the characterization that he had blown up the negotiations with Schumer but said that he asked that they wait until the July inflation numbers came out and pursue this after August recess.

“I said, ‘Chuck until we see the July inflation figures, until we see the July, basically Federal Reserve rates, interest rates, then let’s wait till that comes out so we know that we’re going down a path that won’t be inflammatory, to add more to inflation,’ ” Manchin told Hoppy Kercheval on Talkline. “He says, ‘Are you telling me you won’t do the other right now?’ I said, ‘Chuck, it’s wrong, it’s not prudent to do the other right now.’ “

In other words, Joe knows this stuff will hose We The People, and wants to wait to see how bad it could get before making it worse

Most Credentialed Media websites are Very Unhappy, and the Twitter comments are deranged. Oh, and also the Washington Post: Inflation is soaring. Time to rethink your emergency savings. Strangely, that piece fails to mention the word “Biden” once.

    The left just can’t get past the fact that the Distinguished Gentleman from West Virginia represents the people of the Mountain State, not the denizens of San Francisco and New York City.

    Every step they take, every move they make, Manchin puts a nail in their hopes and dreams of a reset. He’s still a Democrat but I am totally enjoying the show.

  4. Dana says:

    In 2018, Senator Manchin had a ‘progressive’ challenger for the Democratic nomination; Mr Manchin won his primary with 70% of the vote. Even among Democrats alone, Mr Manchin is popular among West Virginians.

    He is the only Democrat in West Virginia who is in office due to winning a statewide election.

      I have been impressed with Manchin. I have always viewed Dems as being absolutely corrupt, but this guy is keeping the country alive and stopping the movement by Biden, not the fake president, and Congress. But I have been knocked over by the gale from Arizona, she is actually doing what an elected representative is supposed to do, listen to her voters.
