Democrat Senator Joe Manchin appeared to deal a death blow to President Biden’s hopes for his proposed $3.5 Trillion dollar budget, which Manchin blasted as ‘the definition of fiscal insanity.’

As The Daily Wire reports:

Manchin said that every member of Congress has a duty to do what is best for the country and not their party, noting that he has stated for months that he cannot support $3.5 trillion in more spending.

“At some point, all of us, regardless of party must ask the simple question – how much is enough?” Manchin said. “What I have made clear to the President and Democratic leaders is that spending trillions more on new and expanded government programs, when we can’t even pay for the essential social programs, like Social Security and Medicare, is the definition of fiscal insanity.”

Democrats have been desperately trying to pass the $3.5 trillion bill, which the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget has estimated could actually cost over $5 trillion, through reconciliation, meaning they would only need a simple majority of 51 votes in the Senate to pass it.

“Suggesting that spending trillions more will not have an impact on inflation ignores the everyday reality that America’s families continue pay an unavoidable inflation tax,” Manchin continued. “Proposing a historic expansion of social programs while ignoring the fact we are not in a recession and that millions of jobs remain open will only feed a dysfunction that could weaken our economic recovery. This is the shared reality we all now face, and it is this reality that must shape the future decisions that we, as elected leaders, must make.”

Let’s hope it deals a death blow to this insane progressive, liberal, bloated, waste of money! I’ve said it before, and here again, not sure why Manchin doesn’t just change parties. He’s more of a Republican than many already in the GOP.

God doesn’t bless the people you mentioned. The devil has blinded the eyes of people so they can’t see the sinful world we are living in. People need to wake up, read their Bibles, and come back to God the Father. The Bible tells us we are in the end times and America has lost His blessings just as Israel did in Isiah and Jeremiah.

I wouldn’t be so fast to thank him. Manchin changes political positions more often than he changes clothes.
