White House Issues Seething Statement About Joe Manchin

The White House is fuming after Democratic Senator Joe Manchin announced on Fox News Sunday he has no plans to vote for President Joe Biden’s multi-trillion dollar spending plan and will not vote to continue working on the legislation.

In response, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki issued a seething statement and essentially called Manchin a liar.

“Senator Manchin’s comments this morning on FOX are at odds with his discussions this week with the President, with White House staff, and with his own public utterances.

Weeks ago, Senator Manchin committed to the President, at his home in Wilmington, to support the Build Back Better framework that the President then subsequently announced. Senator Manchin pledged repeatedly to negotiate on finalizing that framework “in good faith,” Psaki said.

“On Tuesday of this week, Senator Manchin came to the White House and submitted—to the President, in person, directly—a written outline for a Build Back Better bill that was the same size and scope as the President’s framework, and covered many of the same priorities. While that framework was missing key priorities, we believed it could lead to a compromise acceptable to all.

Senator Manchin promised to continue conversations in the days ahead, and to work with us to reach that common ground,” she continued. “If his comments on FOX and written statement indicate an end to that effort, they represent a sudden and inexplicable reversal in his position, and a breach of his commitments to the President and the Senator’s colleagues in the House and Senate.”

Psaki also vowed to keep pushing Manchin to change his mind.

“Just as Senator Manchin reversed his position on Build Back Better this morning, we will continue to press him to see if he will reverse his position yet again, to honor his prior commitments and be true to his word,” she said.

But the truth is, Manchin has been saying for months Biden’s Build Back Better agenda was too big, would cause inflation to worsen and that he didn’t support the IRS snooping on Americans. Since he took office with a 50-50 split in the Senate, Biden has been governing as if he has a super majority and a mandate. He doesn’t.

    Psaki calls Manchin a liar! That’s funny. That’s like the pot calling the kettle black. All that push back congress gave Trump when he was in office is coming back to haunt these idiots. Nice to know we have legislators who are looking out for the people.

    Thank God Joe Manchin is working FOR THE PEOPLE instead of the communist left wing dingalings.

    I guess Senator Manchin is not into this GLOBAL GREEN NEW DEAL…which is BS

    I’ve noticed a trend here. Joe Biden’s White House never issues seething statements about any real crisis, but if Little Joey doesn’t get his way, then he issues temper tantrums from the White House. It’s time for Little Joey to go to the corner for time out until he can act like a nice little boy.

    Discussions and to make suggestions is not confirmation. These idiots need to speak the truth and stop twisting people’s views to suit their own agenda.
