On Fox News Sunday with host Bret Bair, Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV), this morning dropped a bombshell. The rogue Senator announced he would not cave to the Democrat mob, telling Fox News’ Brett Bair that he is a definite “no” on Joe Biden’s radical Socialist Build Back Better spending bill.
Bair explained to Fox News viewers that Senator Manchin is at the center of the massive social spending bill negotiation with Democrat leadership. “Without you, the leadership doesn’t have the vote it needs,” Bair said, asking Manchin if he’s made a final decision on the bill?
The West Virginia moderate Democrat explained that he’s met with Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and his Democratic colleagues in DC to discuss the “mammoth piece of legislation,” and that after weighing all of his concerns, he “cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation.”
The senator told Fox’s Bret Baier: “This is a mammoth piece of legislation, and I had my reservations from the beginning when I heard about it five-and-a-half months ago.”
Manchin cited inflation as a reason for his decision, as he explained that that the inflation his constituents are facing in West Virginia is “not transitory, it’s real.” Manchin also cited the $29 trillion debt that we’re carrying” and the COVID pandemic as reasons that he “just can’t” vote yes on the bill. “I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there,” Manchin explained.
Manchin said: ‘I just can’t vote yes on this legislation. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I just can’t get there, he said.
“I’ve always said, if I can’t go home and explain it to the people in West Virginia, I can’t vote for it. And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation—I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible, and I can’t get there.”

For months, Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) has been the victim of numerous attacks by the Democrat mob over his refusal to cave on the disastrous “Build Back Better” spending boondoggle.
On Nov. 5, a group of far-left environmental freaks surrounded Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) as he attempted to leave a DC parking garage where his vehicle was parked. The protesters chanted, “Climate change now!” and “We want to live!” as Manchin blew his horn loudly at the protesters blocking him from leaving the garage.

The threatening behavior began as Manchin attempted to walk to the garage from his DC houseboat, where the Senator from West Virginia lives when he’s working in the Swamp.

Pray for the safety of this brave Democrat Senator who is actually voting on behalf of his constituents who sent him to DC to represent them. He has more courage than many of the elected Republicans in the DC Swamp who talk a good game but then go along with the Democrat mob once they’re elected over the fear of being brutalized and publicly flogged by them.
