“Letting The ‘Terrorists’ Win”

That was a statement made by a Dem when asked about the pro-democracy move in the party.

A Dem said that?

Yes he did and he is Manchin from West Virginia.

Sen. Joe Manchin won praise from the Daily Caller and Fox News contributors while infuriating voting rights advocates on Tuesday with his suggestion that scrapping the filibuster and passing sweeping, popular pro-democracy reforms would spark a second insurrection just months after a right-wing mob stormed the U.S. Capitol.

The West Virginia Democrat’s comments came in a wide-ranging interview with Vox. With an evenly split upper chamber in which Vice President Kamala Harris breaks tie votes, the party’s most conservative senator plays a key role in advancing or thwarting the legislative efforts of President Joe Biden and Democratic congressional leaders. In contrast to his discussions with Republicans about Biden’s infrastructure proposal, Manchin publicly insists he is “not a roadblock” to the president’s agenda.

The For the People Act, which passed the Democrat-controlled House in March and is backed by Biden, aims to modernize voting registration, restore the Voting Rights Act, end gerrymandering, increase election security and campaign transparency, empower small donors, and implement various ethics reforms. A wave of voter suppression bills introduced this year by GOP state lawmakers has bolstered demands for enacting it.

Why would anyone especially a democrat be opposed to any pro-democracy legislation?

“Letting the ‘terrorists’ win?

So to him expanding voting and promoting voters rights is a creation of ‘terrorists’.

Only terrorists are d/bags like Manchin that would kill positive legislation for his own ego and pocketbook….his pursuit to be more than he will ever be.

It is a worthless spineless corporate tool….that is more about his coffers than the people of this country….typical to ALL politicians….cowardice runs rampant in the parties.

  1. It seems they only stand for office to feather their own nests, and not to make any changes that would actually benefit those that voted for them.
    Best wishes, Pete.
