Senator Bernie Sanders, the socialist multimillionaire from Vermont, on Sunday accused fellow Democrat Joe Manchin (W.Va.) of sabotaging President Joe Biden.
“He has sabotaged the president’s agenda,” Sanders told ABC This Week anchor Martha Raddatz. “The problem was that we continued to talk to Manchin like he was serious. He was not. This is a guy who’s a major recipient of fossil fuel money.”
Thank goodness for Joe Manchin and fossil fuel money because they might be the only things saving us from the financial ruin of Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.
What’s left of it, that is:
On Thursday night, Manchin dealt a devastating blow to Democrats’ hopes for sweeping legislative action this year, telling Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and his staff “unequivocally” that he won’t support the climate or tax provisions of a Democratic economic package, two sources familiar with the talks told CNN.
