Joe Biden’s legislative agenda was dead on arrival in Congress this year.
The Democrats’ plans to ram through untold trillions in new spending thankfully fell through.
And Ted Cruz fired a warning shot across Democrats’ bow that they cannot ignore.
Democrats are furious with West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin.
The moderate Democrat said that he would not vote for Joe Biden’s Build Back Better monstrosity, and his party is out for blood.
And Texas Senator Ted Cruz said that the Democrats could overplay their hand and drive Manchin out of the party.
“A lot of folks ask, ‘Well, gosh, is Manchin going to become a Republican?’ I hope he does. I’ve asked him to. I think every Republican senator has made that case a dozen times to Joe…I will say I think it’s a tough hill for him to climb. He’s just culturally – he’s a Democrat. He’s been a Democrat his whole life and he’s really the godfather of Democrats in West Virginia. So I get why switching parties, that’s hard. That being said, if they’re nasty enough, the best thing that could happen is they could drive him over to the Republican Party and we would welcome him.”
The Democrats don’t seem to understand how a democratic republic works.
Manchin is a Democrat Senator in the reddest state in the country – Biden lost the state in 2020 by 40 points.
Manchin is doing what his constituents want, not what the socialists in California and New York want.
Manchin repeatedly said he would not vote for BBB because of the excessive spending, and he wasn’t alone.
Fellow moderate Democrat Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona was also not in favor of the bill.
Sinema was harassed in a public bathroom, on an airplane, and at a friend’s wedding by crazed leftists.
Manchin officially dropped the hammer on the bill, and with good reason.
He said it would raise inflation, which is already at a 39-year high.
Democrats keep regurgitating the talking point that BBB will lower prices and save money.
That might be the most Orwellian newspeak ever uttered.
Manchin already threatened to leave the party and become an independent.
If that were to happen, it would be a devastating blow to the Democrats.
Their legislative agenda is not popular, and they’re facing a red wave in the midterms.
With Biden’s approval numbers in the gutter, Manchin was not about to hitch his wagon to a failing President.
