Manchin Caves… Will Support Democrat Infrastructure Bill

Once the bipartisan infrastructure bill was agreed to, Joe Biden made it very clear that he expects dual-track legislation.

The bipartisan deal is for show, and Dems will add everything else in the reconciliation bill.

The question was whether or not Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) would cave now that a bipartisan bill was also on the table… and he has.

So Disappointing

Manchin has been playing the moderate card since Trump was in office, but he has proven to be a complete fraud on that front.

The first real sign of problems came when he agreed to reconciliation for the COVID funding right after Joe Biden took office.

After that bill passed, Manchin vowed that he would only pass a bipartisan infrastructure bill.

He, like Joe Biden, apparently now believes that passing them both gets him off the hook…

This should start to create some problems for Manchin because he has a lot of Republicans that vote for him based on the idea of him being middle-of-the-road.

He has yet to actually show that side to conservatives and if he votes for reconciliation, it will make his seat a prime target when he comes back up for re-election.

A week ago, Joe Biden told Americans that prices aren’t actually high.

But the numbers don’t lie.

Inflation is up 14.4% since Biden took office.

And all the president can offer are more lies.

Inflation ⬆️ more than expected.

Overall CPI: +6.4% y/y
Fuel Oil: +27.7%
Electricity: +11.9%
Groceries: +11.3%
Chicken +10.5%
Milk: +11%
Eggs: +70.1%
Bread: +14.9%
Potatoes: +12.4%
Baby Food: +10%
Airline Fares: +25.6%
Real Average Hourly Earnings: -1.8%

Year-over-year real wages have been negative for 22 months - ever since Biden forced through his $1.9 trillion "stimulus."

That's a wages recession for American workers.
