Manchin will vote against Democrat election overhaul bill

President Joe Biden and the Democrats received some bad news on Sunday.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), a pivotal vote for the Democrats, indicated that he will vote against the Democrats’ election overhaul bill, S1, also known as the so-called “For the People Act.” 

“It’s the wrong piece of legislation”

Manchin explained why he will be voting against S1 during an appearance Sunday on the Fox News Channel’s “Fox News Sunday.”

“It’s the wrong piece of legislation to bring our country together and unite our country, and I’m not supporting that because I think it would divide us more,” Manchin said. “I don’t want to be in a country that’s divided any further.”

Manchin continued by opining that S1 includes “a lot of great things,” but he added that “there’s an awful lot of things that basically don’t pertain directly to voting.”

On Sunday, Manchin also published a piece in the Charleston Gazette-Mail explaining his opposition to S1.

“Do we really want to live in an America where one party can dictate and demand everything and anything it wants, whenever it wants?” Manchin asked. “I have always said, ‘If I can’t go home and explain it, I can’t vote for it.’ And I cannot explain strictly partisan election reform or blowing up the Senate rules to expedite one party’s agenda.”

Background

Manchin has been a thorn in the side of the Democrats, recently, as they have been pursuing massive pieces of radical legislation, such as S1.

With the Democrats only holding a narrow 51 to 50 majority in the Senate, including Vice President Kamala Harris’s tie-breaking vote, Manchin is the key to whether the Democrats will or will not be able to proceed with their radical legislation.

Besides opposing SR1 directly, Manchin has also opposed such things as eliminating the Senate filibuster, which, in effect, would allow the Democrats, given the current makeup of Congress, to pass legislation without any support from Republicans.

In the Charleston Gazette-Mail piece, Manchin said that Democrats have “attempted to demonize the filibuster and conveniently ignore how it has been critical to protecting the rights of Democrats in the past.”

Manchin, this week, also came out as being against using the budget reconciliation process to pass Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure proposal without Republican support. “We need to be bipartisan,” Manchin said.

  11. Good for Manchin. He appears to be the only Democrat with any common sense and a modem of honesty and decency in the entire Democratic Party.
    That is not a surprise however since none of the Democrats appear to have a
    brain any larger than a pea.

  12. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I believe that you need to publish more on this subject matter, it might
    not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t talk
    about these subjects. To the next! Cheers!!
