Senator Joe Manchin has now changed course after months of opposition and has now signed on to the Democrat’s massive new spending bill.

As The Daily Wire reports:


Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) resurrected key pieces of President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda in a surprising agreement with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Wednesday.

The Democratic senators agreed to a spending package titled the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.” The bill proposes to increase taxes on billion-dollar companies, spend $369 billion on climate and energy programs, and extend health care subsidies for Affordable Care Act users for three more years, according to The Wall Street Journal.

In recent weeks, Manchin shot down Democrat attempts at pushing through Biden’s agenda, and reportedly told Democratic leaders he would “unequivocally” refuse to support legislation related to climate change and tax increases.

Now, the West Virginia senator claims reconciling with Democrats on this package will help the country fight inflation.

With Manchin now onboard Democrats will now only have to convince Senator Krysten Sinema to sign on to the deal in order for it to pass the Senate.

We need to contact Joe Manchin and ask him what changed and why. He’s getting pressure. Wish he’d just go Republican. Now he can watch America burn.
