One Democrat held a surprise press conference to announce this major break with Joe Biden

Joe Biden depends on Democrats sticking together to pass his multi-trillion-dollar socialist spending agenda.

But Biden got some bad news.

And that’s because one Democrat held a surprise press conference to announce this major break with Joe Biden.

Democrats thought they were putting the finishing touches on a $1.75 trillion socialist spending bill that will create new welfare programs and impose chunks of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.

But Joe Manchin slammed the breaks on those plans.

Manchin called a press conference to announce he could not vote for the “framework” Biden claimed all Democrats agreed to because it consisted of “shell games” and “budget gimmicks” and that spending scheme would cost far more than the $1.75 trillion Biden and the Democrats claim it will.

“As more of the real details … are released, what I see are shell games — budget gimmicks that make the real cost of the so-called $1.75 trillion bill … almost twice that amount, if the full time is run out,” Manchin stated.

Manchin brought up another key point – there is no actual bill right now because Democrats cannot agree on what to put into the bill — including amnesty, government run health care provisions, and tax hikes.

This legislation does not currently exist.

“I will not support the reconciliation legislation without knowing how the bill will impact our debt and our economy and our country. And we won’t know that until we work through the text,” Manchin added.

Manchin made it clear that he had no problem killing a bill that Democrats look at as the key to their 2022 political fortunes if the final product is not to his liking.

“I’m open to supporting a final bill that helps move our country forward. But I am equally open to voting against a bill that hurts our country,” Manchin added.

Democrats need Joe Manchin’s vote.

Because Chuck Schumer is trying to ram this bill through the Senate using the reconciliation process, Schumer cannot lose even one Democrat vote.

Joe Biden’s slipping poll numbers and the deep red wave that swept Virginia in the off-year elections give Manchin pause in supporting Joe Biden’s socialist spending bill.

And the longer these negotiations drag on, the greater the chance they blow up.
