Senator Joe Manchin has now announced that he is prepared to vote against President Biden’s proposed vaccine mandate for larger businesses, a move that could spell doom for the Biden initiative.

As The Hill reports:


“Let me be clear, I do not support any government vaccine mandate on private businesses. That’s why I have cosponsored and will strongly support a bill to overturn the federal government vaccine mandate for private businesses,” Manchin said in a statement.

“I have long said we should incentivize, not penalize, private employers whose responsibility it is to protect their employees from COVID-19,” he added.

“I have personally had both vaccine doses and a booster shot,” he went on, “and I continue to urge every West Virginian to get vaccinated themselves.”

Because all 50 Republicans are supporting the effort, Manchin’s vote gives Senate Republicans enough support to pass a resolution to nix Biden’s vaccine mandate for larger employers. The resolution would still need to pass the House and, even then, would likely be vetoed by Biden.

Manchin and his moderate Democratic colleague Kristen Sinema, have consistently frustrated more progressive members of their party over the past several months by consistently working to block the more radical parts of their agenda.

They don’t care. They think they know what is best for everyone else. But not for them. Congress is exempt from Obummercare and the covid jab.

It simply won’t do ANY good whatsoever to impeach him – unless so very many “Democrat” COMMUNISTS LOSE their seats in November 2022.

He has to be kicked out of the job ONCE those “Democrats” are AT LEAST decimated (better if they be HALVED) in both the House and the Senate – and Harris has to go then at the same time.

The best hope will be if at least some of the states where cheating took place de-certify their Electoral-College votes…
