What have I said hundreds of times…
Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) is a fraud.
I have taken considerable heat from some of you over this, but the numbers do not lie.
Talks a Good Game
Manchin loves to grab headlines by pretending he is holding Democrat leadership’s feet to the flame.
That, however, is far from the case.
Manchin overwhelmingly votes with leading Democrats, including the progressives, on most of his votes.
If I told you Manchin voted with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the most progressive Senator in office, 88 percent of the time, would you believe me?
How about Senator Warren (D-MA)? He voted with her 91 percent of the time!
Senator Schumer (D-N.Y.)? Again, 91 percent.
Compare that to the GOP moderates in office that vote the party line.
Senator Susan Collins (R-ME), a mere 62 percent of her votes are in agreement with Minority Leader McConnell (R-KY).
She actually voted with Schumer 73 percent of the time, a number I am sure was not on her election material.
Senator Graham (R-S.C.), who sells himself as a hardline conservative has only voted the party line 73 percent of the time.
A top Republican aide must have been reading my reports, as he almost quoted me verbatim on a previous assessment of Manchin.
The aide stated, “The bottom line is he portrays himself as a moderate but at the end of the day he always ends up where Chuck Schumer needs him to be.”
Like I said… the numbers don’t lie and I have been warning people about Manchin for years.
The man is a fraud and he cannot be trusted.
