Joe Biden’s agenda is looking like it might be in trouble.
On Sunday, Joe Manchin once again confirmed he was opposed to ending the filibuster.
Now, even far-left USA Today is pointing out that this decision by Manchin has put Biden’s entire agenda at risk.
The article was titled “Manchin’s staunch opposition to ending filibuster may imperil Biden’s agenda, including infrastructure.”
Much of President Joe Biden’s legislative agenda may be in peril after Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., doubled down on his opposition to overhauling the filibuster, jeopardizing everything from the president’s goals on voting rights and immigration reform, to gun control and infrastructure.
The moderate Democrat, in a Sunday op-ed in the Charleston Gazette-Mail, not only revealed his opposition to the Democratic-backed For the People Act but reiterated he won’t vote to weaken or eliminate the filibuster.
For Biden and Democrats, the ramifications of Manchin ruling out changes to the filibuster could have large ramifications for Biden and his administration. It means Democrats would need the support of at least 10 Republicans to pass most bills in a Senate split 50-50 between Republicans and Democratic caucus members.
The issues that this decision impacts are numerous.
It impacts Biden’s infrastructure deal.
It impacts Biden’s immigration reform bill.
It impacts dem voting bills.
It impacts Biden’s radical gun control agenda.
It stopped the Jan 6th commission from taking place.
This explains why the Dems are now going all out to smear Senator Joe Manchin.
