MUST SEE: Senator Manchin’s ‘Reaction’ to Schumer’s Debt Ceiling Speech Goes Viral

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.08.21

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin went viral on social media Friday after some users noticed footage of his unfettered reaction to Chuck Schumer’s ‘victory lap’ on raising the debt ceiling.

 

Manchin told Majority Leader Chuck Schumer “nothing’s changing” on his position regarding the filibuster before the bipartisan approach, thwarting leadership’s effort to raise the debt ceiling along party lines.

“I’ve been very, very clear where I stand, where I stand on the filibuster,” Manchin told reporters Wednesday. “Nothing’s changing. But the bottom line is we have a responsibility to be the adults. Our leadership has a responsibility to lead and that’s what I’m asking, imploring them to do.”

“We are not going to default as a country. We will not default. That’s the responsibility we have as senators, as Congress, as 535 of us responsible to protect this great country,” Manchin said. “I implore them, engage, start working, work this out. This should not be a crisis.”

“Democrats will be left with little option but to look at pushing through a ceiling hike by way of budget reconciliation – an option that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said last week was a ‘non-starter,’” reports Fox News. “Budget reconciliation is a tool the Senate majority could use to fast track budget measures without any support from the minority, and a way to bypass a filibuster blockade – which would require at least 10 Republicans to cross party lines”

“Going through reconciliation is risky to the country,” Schumer told reporters. “Going through the long, convoluted, difficult reconciliation process with debt limit is very, very risky.”

“We’re not pursuing that,” he added.

FANTASYLAND: Pelosi Says the ‘Dollar Amount’ for Biden’s $3.5 TRILLION Package is Actually ‘Zero’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continued to tout Joe Biden’s massive $3.5 trillion spending proposal this week, once-again telling journalists that the shocking price-tag will magically cost “zero.”

“It’s not about a dollar amount…the dollar amount, as the president said, is zero. This bill will be paid for,” Pelosi told reporters at the US Capitol.

A frustrated reporter grilled Press Secretary Jen Psaki Tuesday over the Biden administration’s massive $3.5 trillion spending package; asking if the White House understands that somebody ultimately has to pay the price for the spending increase.

“Do you guys acknowledge the broader truth that it does cost somebody?? Right? The cost of the investments the president wants to make, they’re not simply a free lunch, right? Whether they’re going to cost people who smoke cigarettes, or businesspeople, or companies, or rich people… The cost of what the President wants to do falls on somebody, right?” asked one reporter.

“There’s a clear difference between what we’re talking about as it relates to taxpayer funds, or funding that would lead to our debt? Right?” deflected the Press Secretary.

FLASHBACK: Biden, Pelosi Say the $1.9T ‘American Rescue Plan’ Will ‘Cut Childhood Poverty In Half!’

As Democrats rush to pass another $3.5 trillion spending package through Congress this week, users on social media questioned promises made earlier this year when President Biden and Speaker Pelosi both claimed the ‘American Rescue Plan’ would “cut childhood poverty in half.”

“This plan is going to make it possible to cut child poverty in half. Let me say it again: A, significant historic [sic] will cut child poverty in half,” said Biden on March 6.

“Poverty is set to be cut in half this year, with the share of Americans living in poverty set to reach the lowest level on record,” added Nancy Pelosi.

 

 

Democrats now claim the latest $3.5 trillion will actually “cost zero dollars.”

“It’s not about a dollar amount…the dollar amount, as the president said, is zero. This bill will be paid for,” Pelosi told reporters at the US Capitol.
