Manchin Confirms ‘I Can’t Get There…This is a No” on Biden’s Build Back Better Bill

Published

The Senate has adjourned until next year without passing Biden’s expensive “Build Back Better” bill thanks to Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia. Senator Chuck Schumer did not have the votes needed to pass the bill with Manchin holding out.

Speaking to Fox News’ Bret Baier on Sunday, Baier asked Manchin directly about his position:

Manchin: I’ve always said this, Bret. If I can’t go home and explain to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it. And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there.

Baier: You’re done? This is a no?

Manchin: This is a no on this piece of legislation. I have tried everything I know to do.
The Senate has adjourned until next year.

National Review reports “Senator Manchin has said that the bill cannot exceed $1.5 trillion in size” for his support. “But the bill the House passed spends $1.95 trillion. Senator Manchin has said that he does not want to see any accounting ‘gimmicks’ underpinning the project.”

Manchin has also expressed concern that the “shell games” will “make the real cost of the so-called $1.75 trillion bill estimated to be almost twice that amount if the full time is run out.”

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) did an analysis which backs up Manchin’s assumptions. Manchin said “spending trillions more on new and expanded government programs, when we can’t even pay for the essential programs, like Social Security and Medicare, is the definition of fiscal insanity.”

    If our leaders do not tell the truth concerning our expenses and taxes, then the country is lost. Where is John Galt? Working on the railroad yet?

    The thing that is really screwing up the democrats is that not everyone is going along with all of their plans, regardless of how crazy they are. Manchin is throwing a wrench in their plan. He has no business being a democrat, he should switch sides and be a republican and those RINOS should become demorats.

    Don’t trust Joe Manchin. EVER!!

    I wouldn’t trust him as far as I can spit. He’s a typical democRAT and a typical politician. He wants something BIUG, and when he gets it, he’ll flip faster than a pancake at IHOP.

    If he REALLY had guts, he’d walk across the aisle and caucus with the Republicans.

    PERIOD!!

United States Sees Highest Murder Rate in 25 Years

Published

Crime has been spiking at an aberrant rate, hitting the highest murder rate in 25 years. Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis are among the large liberal cities shattering records for 2021 murder reports.

Data analyst Jeff Asher examined FBI data, reported by the New York Times, which shows the 2021 murder rate was estimated to be 6.9 murders per 100,000 people. That is a mere .5 percent lower than the 1997 murder rate of 7.4

Rising crime rates have prompted policy makers to focus on the increasing mental health and homeless crises sweeping the nation. Some say that is not helpful for a full and comprehensive approach.

Former New York Police Department Commissioner Howard Safir said there is more to be looked at such as “cancel culture and wok mentality that assumes the police are racist and brutal.”

Not only that, liberal policy makers have been incredibly soft on crime, as well as unsupportive of law enforcement. “If crimes continue to be committed in large numbers, and police continue not to have the backing of politicians and the public, then they’re not going to do their job the way they did when I was commissioner” Safir told Fox News Digital on Tuesday.

The murder of 24-year-old Brianna Kupfer in broad daylight as she worked at a luxury furniture store in Los Angeles last week points to a huge failure in our justice system. The young UCLA student was knifed to death by a homeless man, Shawn Laval Smith, who not only has a lengthy rap sheet from across the country, but “was currently free on a $1,000 bond from a misdemeanor arrest in Los Angeles County in October, 2020, sheriff’s records show” reports the Daily mail.

Smith has also been arrested and charged with violent crimes in at least three states. He was also free on a $50,000 bond from Charleston, South Carolina, after allegedly firing a weapon toward an occupied vehicle in 2019.

Murders in Los Angeles last year reached 397, the highest it’s been in 15 years. The NYPD reported its highest number of murders in ten years, with 488.
