I remember a video of Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) standing in the halls of Congress.
He was all but pleading with the reporter to believe that this big spending bill would help alleviate inflation.
Now that the bill is signed, Manchin is singing a different tune.
Why Would It?
Before the bill was signed, Manchin was specifically asked about this inflation bill.
Since the last big spending bill he signed contributed to inflation, why would this one be any different?
Manchin said he would not make that mistake again.
Then, on Tuesday, Fox News correspondent Hillary Vaughn asked Manchin if Americans were misled into thinking this bill would lower inflation by lowering the cost of everyday good.
Manchin responded, “Why would it?
“Well, immediately it’s not. … We’ve never [said] anything would happen immediately, like turn the switch on and off.”
Uhm, actually your side did, and when every analyst in the country said it would not help inflation, the White House called them all liars.
How long before this bill helps, specifically on the energy tax credits? How about a “10-year process,” according to Manchin.
He stated, “That’s not going to be overnight.
“They have incentives to do that, to help them.
“Trust me, if you have something going bad in your home where you’re replacing it, and you have some assistance you’re thinking of, that might be of help.”
I honestly have no idea what Manchin’s end game is here.
The clean energy aspect of it has upset his base in West Virginia and the spending aspects have cost him independent and moderate voters.
What are we missing here?
Where is Manchin’s kickback coming from because you know he is getting one!
