Bernie Sanders could take it no more this week. He called out Joe Manchin for holding the majority of his party hostage, the prez, and Americans hostage.
Bernie Sanders admonished Joe Manchin
Bernie Sanders did what someone needed to do in that form a long time ago. Joe Manchin, the Senator from a welfare state, an entitled state dependent on the government, had the nerve to state that his hostage-taking on Build Back Better is on account he does not want America to develop an entitlement mentality.
"My concern with Mr. Manchin is not so much what his views are," Bernie said. "I disagree with him. But it is that it is wrong. It is really not playing fair that one or two people think that they should be able to stop what 48 members of the Democratic Caucus want, what the American people want, what the President of the United States wants.:"
Bernie said, Manchin should have a voice and there should be a compromise. But a compromise does not mean moving to where Manchin is. He went on to say that as Manchin is complaining, he is giving no specificity.
"We need some specificity here," Bernie said. "It's not good enough to be vague. [Do] you want to cut child care? How much do you want to cut child care? [Do] you want to cut climate? Cut climate? What? How much do you want to do that? Tell us with some specificity what you want."
It is clear Bernie is frustrated. Americans should all be as rich Senators take their time as there are many Americans in dire straits.
