Bernie Sanders heard two words that provoked this unexpected reaction

Joe Biden is now counting on Bernie Sanders to rescue his Presidency.

Now Bernie Sanders is in trouble.

And Bernie Sanders heard two words that provoked this unexpected reaction.

Biden is counting on Bernie Sanders to draft a $3.5 trillion Green New Deal and welfare spending bill that can pass Congress this fall to reset his Presidency.

Joe Biden’s approval numbers collapsed under the weight of jobs, inflation, and illegal immigration crises combined with a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan where Biden’s blunders led to the deaths of 13 U.S. troops and stranded Americans behind fearing for their lives.

Passing the Sanders $3.5 trillion-dollar Green New Deal and cradle to grave welfare state bill depends on keeping all 50 Democrats united.

West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin’s already declared he won’t support a bill that spends $3.5 trillion.

Manchin described his conversation with Sanders on the matter.

“The night before we voted on the bipartisan infrastructure bill, Bernie Sanders wanted to talk to me. Bernie and I- I respect Bernie, truly – is very much a socialist. He makes no bones about it,” Manchin began.

Manchin said Sanders asked him if he would support the $3.5 trillion bill to which Manchin replied, “Hell no.”

“He looked at me and said, ‘You gonna vote for the 3.5 trillion?’” Manchin recounted. “I said, ‘Hell no, Bernie. I’m not voting for 3.5 trillion.’ He says, ‘well at least you’re honest with me.’”

To the surprise of many, Sanders did not throw a fit or confront Manchin.

Manchin’s opposition means Sanders will either have to scale down or scrap the bill.

Scaling down the bill carries risks because socialists in the House of Representatives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez already consider $3.5 trillion in new welfare spending a compromise and could blow everything up if they don’t get their way.

In either case, Joe Biden’s domestic agenda – and his Presidency – are in peril.
