Liberal media are reacting to Sen. Joe Manchin’s, D-W.Va., announcement that he’s a conclusive “no” on President Biden’s Build Back Better plan.
“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,” Manchin told “Fox News Sunday” guest host Bret Baier Sunday. “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.”
“You’re done? This is a no?” Baier replied.
“This is a no on this piece of legislation,” Manchin said. “I have tried everything I know to do.”
The senator said that the rise in inflation, the national debt and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic helped him come to his decision on the massive social spending bill.
