The Democratic Party must be getting pretty fed-up with Joe Manchin. Ever since fraud Joe Biden cheated his way into the White House, Sen. Manchin has refused to support his radical, Bernie Sanders-crafted agenda. He sunk the socialist takeover of our economy. He refused to kill the filibuster. And he didn’t support the left’s attempts to destroy our voting laws.
But it doesn’t seem to bother Manchin. That’s because he knows what side his bread is buttered on. The folks back home are Trump-loving, conservatives. They will in no way embrace a Democrat that supports the radical left’s agenda. Chuck Schumer is trying to string up Republicans by forcing a vote on an extreme abortion bill.
But his plans were foiled, thanks to old Manchin.
West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin said Wednesday he will not vote with fellow Democrats on their measure to codify women’s access to abortion across the country.
Manchin’s failure to support the bill means it will fall short of receiving full support from all 50 Senate Democrats and the required 60 votes, with all 50 Republicans not expected to vote in support of passage…
Manchin explained that he considers the bill in its current form is too broad.
He also voted against a version of the bill brought to the floor earlier this year…

Manchin, claiming to be pro-life, refused to vote for the bill because it goes too far. Instead of simply “codifying” the decision of Roe v. Wade into law, it expands abortion rights to the extreme. Not only does it wipe out 500 state laws regulating abortion, but it requires abortions all the way to the 9th month of pregnancy.
It would also force Christian doctors to perform abortions, regardless of their religious beliefs.
Schumer claims this vote is to force Republicans to tell the country they are against “women’s rights.” Really, Chuck? A law this radical would be hated by most Americans. Even a moderate Democrat like Manchin can reject it and remain well within the confines of his views.
Democrats clearly overplayed their hand with this ridiculous law. This vote will in no way be an attack on Republicans—but an exposing of how far Democrats will go to protect a barbaric and outdated procedure.
