David Korn, a reporter for the left-wing website Mother Jones, reported Wednesday that Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin is considering leaving the Democratic Party to become independent.
Manchin has been targeted by the far left for refusing to give the party a blank check on the Democrats’ plan to spend a whopping $ 3.5 trillion.
Korn’s report said that if Manchin and the Democrats could not reach an agreement on the bill, he would announce that he was leaving the party.
Shortly after the explosive report came out, Manchin vehemently denied it was true – plotting it to spread rumors.
Manchin denies the story of considering leaving the Democratic Party: “It’s nonsense,” he told me. He added: “I have no control over the rumors.”

Disagreement with parts of the bill
Stuck between Joe Manchin and Biden, along with other Democrats, are several key elements of the huge spending bill.
The list of offensive items includes the mere size of the bill, a carbon tax, the expansion of Medicare and Medicaid, the extended child tax credit and climate change measures.

He further added that he would not support any package that does not contain the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funding for abortion.
Manchin has held extensive discussions with other Democrats, such as his colleague Sen. Barney Sanders (I-VT) and the chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Pramila Jaipal (DWA), all in an effort to reach an agreement.
Rumors abound that Manchin is leaving the Democrats, leaving the Senate in the hands of the GOP.
Joe Manchin has the power to save America.

The leftists have caused a catastrophe
Manchin’s refusal to support the government’s massive expansion has angered the left. Attacks have become increasingly personal, often accusing Manchin of making financial gains without spending trillions of government money.
Some suspect he could be a kind of dual agent, intended to sabotage the Republicans by mid-2022.
Because it takes time. It eats lots and lots of time.
And who benefits from that?

Some have suggested that Manchin has a master plan to enrich his family – although such people seem curiously interested in other senators:

1. Manchin’s daughter Ippin has increased the price by 400%
2. Manchin’s wife, Natal, has taken charge of the Association of State Boards of Edu and has made EPPENS compulsory in schools.
3. Manchin Public School has voted in favor of a law mandating the supply of epiphany
4. The family makes 6 tons

A new line of attack is that Manchin is another elite of Washington.
Joe Manchin is worth ~ 10M and his children are even richer, yet he believes that support for each of the married couple to earn $ 31,000 is the “entitlement mentality.”
History will remember Manchin as the man who starved the Americans. https://t.co/NbTrOD6QXR

And yes, if all else fails, there’s always a race card:
Black, brown and aboriginal people are disproportionately seriously ill and dying due to the pollution of fossil fuels.
So yes, barring climate investment is absolutely racist. If you were wondering, @ Sen_Jomanchin.

So Manchin has officially denied that there is any indication that he is leaving the Democrats – although he is clearly not welcome in his own party unless he points a finger at the line.
