Sen. Manchin blasts President Biden over veto of anti-ESG bill

 March 21, 2023

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) blasted President Joe Biden over vetoing a bipartisan bill against ESG in support of a radical agenda.

Manchin argued that the president is prioritizing radicalism over the American people in a statement following Biden's action.

Manchin's words

“This Administration continues to prioritize their radical policy agenda over the economic, energy, and national security needs of our country, and it is absolutely infuriating,” Manchin said.

“West Virginians are under increasing stress as we continue to recover from a once in a generation pandemic, pay the bills amid record inflation, and face the largest land war in Europe since World War II,” Manchin continued.

“The Administration’s unrelenting campaign to advance a radical social and environmental agenda is only exacerbating these challenges," he added.

Woke financial institutions

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) also spoke out against the president's support of left-wing policies in his veto.

"Of course Biden’s first veto is one that will allow woke financial institutions to put the pursuit of left-wing political policies above the financial security of American seniors and families," he tweeted.

"The Republican-led legislation prevented Biden's administration from taking environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues into account when making investment decisions," Fox News reported.

"GOP lawmakers argue ESG is a measure of a corporation's loyalty to "woke" cultural movements and should not be taken into account," it added.

Biden claimed the bill would be a risk to retirement savings.

"This bill would risk your retirement savings by making it illegal to consider risk factors MAGA House Republicans don't like," he tweeted. "Your plan manager should be able to protect your hard-earned savings — whether Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene likes it or not."

Biden's veto may backfire as his claim of unifying the nation continue to contrast the reality of his reckless actions that support the view of a small percentage of Americans.
