Joe Biden was already on thin ice.
Now the floor just fell out from underneath him.
And Joe Biden just learned the bad news that will end his presidency.
Joe Biden faced the worst poll numbers of any president at this point in their term in history.
Biden’s approval rating sank to 33 percent and 64 percent of Democrats want him to step down and not run for re-election in 2024.
Now Biden found out his legislative agenda is dead on arrival.
The June inflation report showing the Consumer Price Index surging 9.1 percent – the largest jump in 40 years – caused West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin to back away from talks with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on a potentially trillion-dollar power grab to raise taxes and impose the Marxist Green New Deal.
Since Democrats planned to use the reconciliation process Schumer needed all 50 Democrats on board.
Manchin saying no means this version of Biden’s socialist spending spree is kaput.
However, Manchin left open the possibility of supporting an expansion of the socialist Obamacare scheme.
Joe Manchin on Thursday rejected Senate Democrats’ proposed energy and climate investments, as well as their goals of increasing taxes on the wealthy and large corporations, according to a Democrat briefed on the discussions.
Instead the West Virginia senator said “unequivocally” during a meeting with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer that he will only support reducing drug prices and a two-year extension of Affordable Care Act subsidies as components of a party-line bill designed to evade a filibuster, the person said.
Manchin’s rejection at the meeting, first reported by the Washington Post, blew up weeks of discussions over a larger legislative package. It leaves just a slim health-care focused bill as an option for Democrats who have long hoped to send far more expansive legislation to President Joe Biden’s back before the midterms.
If Joe Biden and the Democrats needed any more evidence that Joe Biden was dead man walking politically this should serve as a wake-up call.
Members of Congress saying no to presidents of their own party is a crippling rebuke.
The President of the United States is known as the leader of the free world.
Not even being able to lead their own party to accept their legislative program shows the president has no juice, the voters are angry and it’s every man for themselves.
In this case, Joe Biden sowed the seeds of his own defeat.
Biden came into office looking to choke off the production of American oil and natural gas and then spend trillions of dollars on socialist welfare programs.
The predictable results were record-high gas prices and inflation spiking to Jimmy Carter levels.
Joe Biden’s failures on inflation and gas prices led the Democrats to face an utterly poisonous political environment in 2022.
Now Joe Manchin rejecting Joe Biden’s last big socialist legislation could spell the end for Biden and portend a chaotic 2024 presidential primary.
