South Carolina Democrat Absolutely Destroys Joe Manchin Over For The People Stance [Video]
Democrats were satisfied in January when Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock won their unique elections. With control of the senate came the chance to strongly pass Joe Biden’s policy objectives.
However Joe Manchin (and Kyrsten Sinema) have actually produced barriers to those objectives. This weekend, the West Virginia senator stated he would be voting versus the For individuals Act.
Manchin’s actions are bothering to numerous Democratic legislators. That list consists of long-tome South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn. Clyburn tore into Manchin throughout a Monday night look on CNN.
The Democrat informed host Erin Burnett, “I think Senator Manchin needs to take a hard look at what he’s saying here. He’s not talking about voting against For the People. He’s talking about denying other Democratic senators an opportunity to cast a vote on a very critical issue.”
“I would say to Senator Manchin, you’ve told us what you’re for and against. How about put forth the legislation that you would like to see passed? Let us see your bill on voting rights and preserving the integrity of our democracy. We are playing a very dangerous game here. If I had not studied history all of my life, maybe I wouldn’t be thinking the way I think, and not feeling the way I feel. The fact the matter is the greatest empires in the world came down because of decadence, and a lot of avoidance of issues. It’s a whole theory that Nero played his fiddle as Rome burned. But what we have is a modern day fiddling around in the Senate and this democracy is on fire.”

Manchin has actually apparently been outlining to tank a Democratic expense for months. He makes sure to continue taking heat for making this the concern where he plants his flag.
