Senators Agree on Democrat Tax Increases, Green New Deal Policies

On Wednesday, it was reported that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has caved on Green New Deal policies that include a tax hike — one of the pieces of Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better.” agenda.

The Daily Wire reports:

The Democratic senators agreed to a spending package titled the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.” The bill proposes to increase taxes on billion-dollar companies, spend $369 billion on climate and energy programs, and extend health care subsidies for Affordable Care Act users for three more years, according to The Wall Street Journal.

In recent weeks, Manchin shot down Democrat attempts at pushing through Biden’s agenda, and reportedly told Democratic leaders he would “unequivocally” refuse to support legislation related to climate change and tax increases.

Now, the West Virginia senator claims reconciling with Democrats on this package will help the country fight inflation.

“We must be honest about the economic reality America now faces if we want to avoid fanning the flames of inflation,” Manchin said in a statement Wednesday. “At its core, the purpose of reconciliation is to get our economic and financial house in order. Contrary to foolish talk otherwise, America cannot spend its way out of debt or out of inflation.”

I always expected Manchin to cave. If he were truly a moderate, he would be a Republican. He may not be a radical liberal like most Democrats, but there are no real moderate politicians in the Democrat party.

All of the Democrats except a few on the left are moderate, at least compared to far-right Republican wackos who cannot recognize reality, facts or truth. Democrats are the true patriots and do not want the US turned into the fourth Reich.

Too bad, was hoping Manchin will stick to his political philosophy, but the libs convinced him to flip. Maybe the W Virginia voters will respond.

Oh, Manchin! West Virginia should vote
you out of office when your seat is up
got re-election. You do this every time;
you talk big like you are, actually, thinking
logically and then you cave every time,
Shame on you!

We are now labeling Manchin as a terrorist for our own sakes along with the evil members in the House of Representatives and all other evil elite of the world! I don’t know where the billions are going to come from as everyone will soon be out of work. There will be no fuel for vehicles. No money to earn. No TAXES can be taken out and the fact that the IRS is locked and boarded up so where the hell is our tax money going if there is no more IRS and even the Federal Reserve is closed and boarded up and now is called the Treasury. Very fishy things are happening. The truth is out there if one knows how to look.

I do not sense a trout in the milk. Words like surreptitious, duplicitous, and skullduggery seem to leave out of Sen. Manchin’s change of heart – now supporting climate change, a belied, beguiling, mendacious perfidy being hoisted not only on the American public but on the rest of the world – the globalist agenda at work – for example, look at what is going on in the Netherlands against the nation citizens; grab lands, take over by control and lack of citizens ability to protect themselves, a cabal leading coterie’s infiltrating every form of government by use of cadres – the World Economic Forum, Soros, Schwab, Quesada, and their ilk, assiduously attempting to change the world fundamentally. We are being attacked in the United States from within. They have infiltrated our entire government, from the current president’s office to the CIA, DOJ, FBI, and all the present secretaries in this administration. This danger is imminent and needs to be addressed with celerity.

Again we’ve been betrayed by those we’ve elected to powerful positions in the government. Manchin speaks out of one side of his mouth when it suits him and then the other side of his mouth when he decides to cave to the atrocious policies of his socialist party. He is never to be trusted as he will always say one thing for “show and tell” to pull the wool over his constituents eyes and do another when he can gain some clout with this party. How long are the voters in West Virginia going to put up with his betrayals–which hurt, not only their state, but the entire country. And how long are the rest of us going to allow these dishonest, self-aggrandizing, power-hungry oligarchs to continue to try and destroy this great country? We can no longer afford to sit back and delude ourselves that this destruction will correct itself. And if we wait much longer, there will be nothing to salvage. So, I’ll ask you what William Wallace asked the Scots, “What will you do without freedom?” Do you really want that question answered by the progressive socialist Democrats?

I knew he didn’t have the ba!!$ to stand up against the DemonRats! What a whiney little loser he is! I must say he never had me fooled, I was just waiting for him to cave. The only good thing is he did it in time for the bad effects to be totally noticeable by November! He WAS right, you can’t spend your way out of this mess and they will only make it worse trying!

When he held the line not long ago and everyone praised him, I said: don’t forget he’s a Dem!
I proceeded with caution, because at the end of the day all these kreeeeps stick together.
Here we are now!!! What a shame!!!
His vote affects everyone. Please organize and go to the polls by the droves in November.

Why is it that these policies/bills find trouble getting the support of even the majority party to get to half of the Senate to say “it’s good” and no support for the other half? Politics will be politics, but wouldn’t even “decent” policies/bills get 65-70 percent support from the entire Senate instead of always a calling Manchin or Sienna, etc. the “problem”?
