Dem. Sen. Manchin comes out against D.C. statehood, federalizing elections

President Joe Biden and his cohorts in Congress just got some more bad news . . . from a key Democrat.

Reports indicate that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has just come out as against two big pieces of legislation that Biden and far-left congressional Democrats are looking to get passed. 

Manchin’s, currently, is one of the most powerful votes in the Senate. That’s because the Senate is currently split 51 to 50, if one counts Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote as the Democrats’ 51st vote, and, in order for Biden and congressional Democrats to have any chance at getting their agenda passed they need all Senate Democrats on board.

The good news for Republicans and for Americans, in general, is that Manchin has held his ground in refusing to support efforts to eliminate the Senate filibuster and to push Biden’s spending measures using the reconciliation process.

Manchin, a “nay” for H.R. 1

Now, Manchin has just come out as against two crucial pieces of legislation for the Democrats.

One is the Democrats’ election reform bill H.R. 1, which Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her fellow Democrats have already pushed through the House.

Manchin recently said, according to Breitbart, that he “would not be able to support” H.R. 1, which would have the effect of federalizing all elections.

“How in the world could you, with the tension we have right now, allow a voting bill to restructure the voting of America on a partisan line?” Manchin recently asked. “I just believe with all my heart and soul that’s what would happen, and I’m not going to be part of it.”

Also a “nay” on D.C. statehood

Another major bill that Manchin has come out against is one that would turn the District of Columbia into the 51st state. This, of course, would result in the Democrats getting more representation in the government, which is why some are referring to the bill as a fairly naked power grab.

Pelosi’s House, too, already pushed this measure through. But, Manchin is looking to slow Senate Democrats down.

“If Congress wants to make D.C. a state, it should propose a constitutional amendment … and let the people of America vote,” Manchin said on Friday. “Every legal scholar has told us that. So, why not do it the right way and let the people vote to see if they want to change?”

As long as Manchin stays firm, it appears that America at least has a chance at making it through Biden’s presidency.

  2. Dear Senator Manchin,

    Thank you for your stand against HR-1, and D.C. statehood. The people should have a say in both subjects.

  3. Another Thank You Sen. Manchin for giving the people the consideration they/we deserve. No good will come from his bills and it is certain that there will be suffering among the people he says he protects. Thanks again.

  4. Manchin does not belong in the Demoncrat Party! He is much too smart, and honest a man to be one of those pathetic people, like Pelosi, Schumer, etc.!

  5. NEITHER BIDEN, NOR HARRIS ARE QUALIFIED FOR THE POSITIONS THEY NOW HOLD ILLEGALLY! !!!
    YOU MUST START PROCESSINGS FOR THEIR REMOVAL AT ALL COSTS ?

  6. Thank you Senator Manchin. We need more like you representing us. I am sure that you are taking a ton of backlash (and even threats). Keep Standing Fast and KNOW that You are in our Daily Prayers. from a former WV resident and WVU alumni.

  7. They rigged the presidential election rigged to make DC a state would be a cakewalk. The downside is that there’s no mail in ballots and only the living will be able to vote if you don’t have a heart beat you can’t vote and votes coming from noncitizen prisoner and illegals who are illegally here will be deported at the poling places. MAYBE THE PUPPET MASTERS CAN FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET MR PUPPET PRESIDENT TO SIGN A EXECUTIVE ORDER HA HA LMAO

  8. Amazing, out f 50 Democratic Senator there is only one that’s a true American. All the rest are just filthy lemmings or worse, anti America. Everyone of them need to be voted out on their next cycle. A very BIG THANK YOU Senator Manchin. God bless you and the USA.

  9. Manchin is a moral, ethical and honest politician (!?), that is not characteristic of today’s Democratic party. His honesty angers progressive liberals.

  10. I would like for Manchin to be in the Republican Party, but then again, a cog in the Democratic Party is also quite a powerful cog in the works!

  11. I too thank you Senator Manchin for not just blindly following the democratic party and for thinking for yourself and for thinking about the American people. America is not a one party country and thank you for standing in the way of them making it that. They seem to have forgotten that they are supposed to work for the people and not just their party

  12. Thank You Senator Manchin. The country needs some level heads all around as our country is really at a crossroads and not all like what they see.

  13. These comments are RIGHT ON!! Kudos to Senator Manchin. He should have run for President!!
