The Left is relentlessly attacking Senator Joe Manchin. That is because he has indicated that he will not support Bernie Sanders’ $3.5 trillion dollar spending plan. Rational Americans must contact Senator Manchin’s office, and tell him to continue to say no to this insane spending plan. Otherwise he will buckle to the pressure and and agree to support the plan. The GOP should be in the midst of a massive advertising campaign, so that opposition grows against Bernie Sanders’ bankrupt America spending plan.

Sanders pushes back at Manchin on $3.5T spending plan
By The Hill, September 7, 2021
Senate Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Democrats can’t afford to slow down progress on a $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation package after Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said the party should hit the pause button.
“You can’t slow it down,” Sanders told The New York Times in an interview over the weekend during his recent trip to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, one of the latest stops on his cross-state campaign to the forthcoming legislation.
The massive spending plan, which Democrats have already been at work crafting during recess this month, is expected to check off a number of party-backed priorities, including funding for universal pre-K, tuition-free community college, and health care expansions.
Manchin, who has expressed concerns about the price tag for the package, had urged his colleagues to “hit the pause button.”
“I, for one, won’t support a $3.5 trillion bill, or anywhere near that level of additional spending, without greater clarity about why Congress chooses to ignore the serious effects inflation and debt have on existing government programs,” Manchin wrote in an opinion piece last week.
Democrats had hoped to move the spending plan through the House be the end of September. But Manchin said there was a need for need for more “clarity on the trajectory of the pandemic” before spending so much money. He also expressed concerns about inflation.
Sanders said it’s crucial Democrats act quickly on the $3.5 trillion plan, which the party hopes to pass on a Democratic-only vote. That will require all 50 Democrats in the Senate to be unified. Budget reconciliation rules prevent the GOP from filibustering the measure.
“Within a little while, everything is going to become political. The only way you get things done historically in Congress is in the first year of a session, where you can escape a little bit from the partisan politics,” he said.
