Manchin Faces Backlash From Deal With Schumer

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin announced he would support Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer’s new spending bill.

The bill would raise taxes on Americans to pay for the increases in spending.

The deal would crush the energy sector in West Virginia.

The Gateway Pundit reported:

Senator Joe Manchin surprised Washington DC elites and the mainstream chattering class when he announced his support for the Democrats’ green new deal funded by nearly $800 billion in new tax hikes.

The Green New Deal will crush the coal and energy sector in his home state of West Virginia. But it will make the windmill manufacturers in China rich. That’s important!

The entire spending package will be funded by new taxes on workers and producers while inflation remains at 40-year highs.

Now, Manchin is feeling the heat for supporting the bill.

One Senate aide said that “he’s getting blasted pretty hard in West Virginia” and is getting defensive in interviews.

From Fox News:

Manchin has faced sharp criticism, including from his West Virginia constituents, following his decision to support a scaled-back version of the massive Democrat-backed spending bill, officially labeled the Inflation Reduction Act, after announcing he would not support the original “Build Back Better” bill being pushed by the Biden administration.

Fox News Digital spoke with several Senate aides who detailed Manchin’s anxiety concerning the backlash. Each of the aides asked to remain anonymous over fear of retaliation and because of the sensitive nature of the negotiations surrounding the revamped legislation.

“He is clearly defensive in his TV interviews, and he’s getting blasted pretty hard in West Virginia,” one Senate committee staffer said, referring to multiple media appearances by Manchin in which he was sharply pressed over his shifting support.

The American people don’t support the Democrat’s radical agenda.
