Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Puts Cap on Budget Spending

Democrats are about to make the big push to force through a $3.5 trillion reconciliation package.

Both Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have resisted using reconciliation.

As I suspected, Manchin was the first to break, but not all is lost here.

Cap It!

Manchin has repeatedly said that he would not back any reconciliation for infrastructure spending.

He has gone back on his word before, and he is about to do it again, albeit with a caveat.

Manchin wants no parts of the $3.5 trillion plan, but he will go for $1.5 trillion, which gives Biden hope.

In fact, after Manchin made his announcement, Joe Biden stated, “Joe, at the end, has always been there.

“He’s always been with me. I think we can work something out.

“And I look forward to speaking with him.”

If there is one thing that I have learned over the last few years, Manchin does a lot of barking and does not have much bite.

I had been fooled by him before, but no more.

He went from nothing to $1.5 trillion in just a few weeks, so what does the future hold on this front?

Here is my guess… Biden will come down from $3.5 trillion just a bit, and Manchin will sign off on, which means all hope now rests on Sinema to block this ridiculous spending by Democrats.

Sinema, somehow, has managed to stay under the radar, but that will change soon.

Manchin was all the rage after his op-ed, appearing to make a stand, but that was clearly just posturing to make it look like he is putting up a fight for his constituents.

After Manchin breaks, you better believe all eyes and every pound of pressure that Democrats can apply will be focused on Sinema.

  1. Another case where Manchin is not a man of his word and can’t be trusted to do what he says he will do. Prayers that Sonoma will be yrue to her word. Time will tell.

    1. None of the people in Congress have any interest in the American people. If their lips are moving they are lying. No backbone to most.

      1. Your all right. Damn Manchin. You can’t trust anyone in Congress. The only one that Colorado can Trust is Loren Boebert. Of course you know that the Democrats are after her tooth and nail. Nancy Pelosi wants her out of there. We want Fancy Nancy out of Congress. Any time you talk about a Trillion Dollars think about how damn many zeros that is. Its beyond my capacity to imagine how many Hundreds of Dollars to stack up so you can see what a Trillion Dollars Looks like.

  2. I compare Manchin and GOP Graham as one in the same talk a good talk and never carry through. What good are they as representatives of the people for the people. If Manchin had balls he would stand up and do the right thing. Joe you can and should stop the crap that the democrats are doing. Stand up and be counted or wallow in the swamp like all your colleagues.

  3. Actual infrastructure should be well below the trillion dollar range. The Budget should be way below what they are offering. In fact, it they’d just remove all the BS climate panic money and all the new social welfare programs it would be manageable. But no, we have people who throw money at problems that money won’t solve.

  4. Joe Biden / Joe Manchin Just 2 lying Joe’s. Democrats Suck from top to bottom Sleepy Joe knows little Joe better do what he’s told !!! OR ELSE !

Today, a New York City court struck down the Democrats’ radical scheme that would allow over 800,000 non-citizens to vote in NYC elections.

This ruling is a huge victory for election integrity and the rule of law: American elections should be decided by American citizens. (1/2)

Instead of Biden visiting Saudi Arabia to beg for more oil, we should be unleashing energy production in America. #BidenGasHike
