Jen Psaki just made the biggest mistake of her life that every Democrat instantly regretted
Anger coursed through the entire Democrat Party.
Joe Biden’s socialist agenda suffered a major setback.
And Jen Psaki just made the biggest mistake of her life that every Democrat instantly regretted.
West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin went on Fox News and announced his opposition to Joe Biden’s $5 trillion socialist welfare and Green New Deal spending bill.
“If I can’t go home and explain to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it,” Manchin told host Brett Baier. “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. This is a no on this piece of legislation. I have tried everything I know to do.”
Manchin’s announcement of his intention to vote “no” effectively killed this version of Joe Biden’s socialist spending agenda, because Democrats could not afford to lose one vote.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki released a statement blistering Manchin as a liar for supposedly going back on his word to Joe Biden to support the socialist spending scheme and accused Manchin of acting in bad faith.
“Senator Manchin’s comments this morning on FOX are at odds with his discussions this week with the President, with White House staff, and with his own public utterances. Weeks ago, Senator Manchin committed to the President, at his home in Wilmington, to support the Build Back Better framework that the President then subsequently announced. Senator Manchin pledged repeatedly to negotiate on finalizing that framework ‘in good faith,’” Psaki wrote.
Jen Psaki and the rest of the Democrat Party may come to regret that anger was their first reaction to Joe Manchin opposing this version of Joe Biden’s socialist spending agenda.
Manchin did not commit to opposing every spending bill.
The West Virginia Democrat only announced he was opposed to the nearly $5 trillion version of this socialist spending bill.
Democrats could still win Manchin’s vote with a smaller socialist bill.
But the White House attacking Manchin as a liar in such a public way could push Manchin to oppose any bill.
