An unhinged MSNBC host Joy Reid is calling on Democrats in the Senate to wage war against Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. Reid is angry because the two of them are unwilling to destroy the economy by passing a pork-laden $3.5 trillion dollar infrastructure plan, which is a misnomer because there is just a tiny fraction of that money actually going to infrastructure. Should the bill pass, we will return to Jimmy Carter-type inflation.
“At this point, Manchin and Sinema have essentially declared war on President Biden and their own party’s agenda. The only question left is whether war will be waged in return.”
I really wish the Democrats would listen to her because if the Democrats fall on them like a ton of bricks. But, it will never happen. Democrats are evil, but don’t make the mistake of thinking they are stupid. They know very well that they could drive them to the Republican party and at that point, they can’t pass anything. Both Senators would actually improve their chances at reelection by switching parties. That would cost them the majority in the Senate.

Manchin announced his decision on the 3.5 trillion dollar boondoggle:
“I, for one, won’t support a $3.5 trillion bill, or anywhere near that level of additional spending, without greater clarity about why Congress chooses to ignore the serious effects inflation and debt have on existing government programs.”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) claims that Manchin is killing her NY constituents:
“Manchin has weekly huddles w/ Exxon & is one of many senators who gives lobbyists their pen to write so-called ‘bipartisan’ fossil fuel bills. It’s killing people. Our people. At least 12 last night. Sick of this ‘bipartisan’ corruption that masquerades as clear-eyed moderation.”
“All day our community has been pulling bodies out of homes from the flood. Entire families. And we’re supposed to entertain lobbyist talking points about why we should abandon people & do nothing? No.”
Ali and others called for Democrats to strip Sinema and Manchin of their committee assignments.
“F*** Joe Manchin. Just f*** him,” read another tweet.
The progressive left was similarly outraged against centrist Democrats after the Supreme Court refused to strike down a pro-life law in Texas placing increased restrictions on abortion.
Reid went on to accuse Manchin and Sinema of being in “the pockets of the super rich.”
