Manchin's media critics predict Build Back Better 'no' vote is threat to the 'future of American democracy'
After learning about Sen. Joe Manchin’s, D-W.Va., plan to vote against President Biden’s Build Back Better plan, liberal media pundits began panicking about the supposed threat to democracy.
Compare McCain and Manchin. Out of anti-Trump spite, McCain sabotaged the Republican's attempt repeal the Affordable Care Act. The Democrats profusely complimented McCain for standing on "principle" and supporting US values. Now Manchin, standing on principle and US values, won't endorse Biden's grotesque Build Back Better legislation. The Democrats are ferociously vilifying him. Dirty politics at its "finest".
Liberal media and progressive politicians immediately attacked Manchin for his position, including his colleague Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who accused Manchin of being beholden to pharmaceutical companies. Others called the decision "devastating," while ABC’s "This Week" panel showed visual disappointment at the news.
