Democrats Senator Joe Manchin announced on Thursday that he still opposes Democrat attempting to pass a massive infrastructure bill without Republican support, a statement which is likely to only increase the attacks Manchin has received recently from the far-left.

As The Hill reports:

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said Thursday that he doesn’t yet support Democrats trying to go it alone to pass an infrastructure package, even as a growing number of his colleagues are running out of patience.

Manchin, during separate interviews in West Virginia with NBC and CNN, made it clear that he wants talks between the White House and Republicans, led by fellow West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R), to keep going.

“We need to do something in a bipartisan way. … We’re not going to get everything but we can move forward,” Manchin told CNN. “These take time. I know everyone is in a hurry right now. … We’ve got to work together and that takes a lot of time and energy and patience.”

Asked during a separate interview with NBC News if Democrats should try to pass an infrastructure package on their own, Manchin added, “I don’t think we should. I really don’t.”

Manchin’s refusal to follow the lead of the radical left will likely help republicans block some of the far-left’s more unhinged plans for the infrastructure bill.

How admirable Senator Manchin! The RINOs should look up to him and feel shameful for their acceptance of blindly radical proposals.

RINOS are evil and have no sense of right or wrong. The sin of pride dominates their thinking and judgment, as they act as political vandals, egged on by the evil press.
Romney’s father ruined American Motors, which went out of business, and the son went into to politics with the money taken from the betrayed investors, suppliers, and lenders. This ignorant and impotent fool, loves to see his name in the press, which makes the family loser feel significant. He best retire from supporting the Devil’s party, the Democrats, and spend his remaining days praying for forgiveness, as one of the worst enemies of One Nation Under God.
If God could send the Angel of Death to kill the first born of Egypt, just to get Pharaoh’s attention, we can join in prayer that God Almighty remove the corrupt and evil that deceive the children of God. God can forgive their sins and welcome them to heaven, but end their destruction of his precious creation.
Holy Spirit come. Angel of Death come. Amen.

Well first of all God needs to remove those evil pastors that use God to build their own kingdoms to enrich themselves while neglecting the people that need to hear about salvation. The reason our government is the way it is is because the church first became corrupt and evil. The Bible says if my people which are called by my name will repent and turn from their wicked ways and call upon me I will hear from heaven and heal their land. So instead of getting on the politicians for being politicians perhaps you need to be praying for God to remove the walls in sheep clothing from the pulpits.

You may have a point there… why else be the only democrat that is acting as if to serve the public.

Does that make him a DINO?…Democrat in Name only?………if so, we need a heck of a lot more of them in the Democrat Party to counteract the miserable collection of RINO’s we have.

That was my thinking but we’ll take it and thank him profusely.
