    Manchin fires back after Pence attack: 'This is why Washington sucks'
    [​IMG]
    During Tuesday's State of the Union, a lone Democrat in the front row leapt up and down to applaud the president during his address to Congress: Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

    But by Wednesday afternoon, a war of the words had erupted after the White House seemed to turn on Manchin, criticizing the senator in a fiery speech by vice president Mike Pence. Manchin faces re-election this year.

    It’s not an attack, it’s the truth. Democrats voted against tax reform and those up for re election have to run on it.

    If tax reform was bad like the democrats are trying to make you beleive they should run on it.

    Manchin says one thing but always seems to vote with the rest of the lefties.
    Compared to Pelosi at least he has a personality though.

    This man from West Virginia is trying to be accommodating to Trump and the Republicans
    His state went for Trump.
    But it will do him no good because they want to run him out and put in another Republican in his place.
    Fight like hell is his only chance. Stand up for workers, health care, eduction and good jobs. Against the drug companies who ruined so many lives in hos state and the BS of clean coal.
    Speak the truth to power, he may not win but he won't anyway and at least he can sleep well at night.

    Joe Manchin is only doing and saying what he thinks needs to be said to get re-elected this year. Nothing more, nothing less. He's just another Democrat playing the game of survival.

    If what Trump has done so far is so detrimental to our country, I want to see these Democrats campaign on just the opposite platform......and we'll see how that works out for them.

    That's what Joe gets for applauding
    A trump style pie in the face. Maybe an empty seat would have been a better message

    A Republican in his seat will be a better message.

    Manchin is toast.The Governor of that state sees the writing on the wall and switched last year.A state that relies on mining jobs and is not full of illegals will not get any love from the Dimm Party.I do think Manchin wants to see America prosper,under any administration,unlike most of his Dimm counterparts.Not good enough for WV,he will be gone.

    Joe talks reasonable, but when it comes time to vote, he always votes with Schumer
    Joe voted against tax cuts, that is a fact
    the problem these Dems in states Trump won is they are in big trouble- they have to go home and defend shutting down the govt for illegals, not giving the American people more of their money

    Tax cuts means less money will go to help places like West Virginia and Kentucky.
    Less help with health care, schools job training and help with getting something to eat and keep the house warm.

    That lame statement is a non-starter. Anyone with a clue knows that there is no threat of losing either.
    People want jobs.....and the Democrats are completely against their creation.
    The more govt. dependency, the more Democrat votes......and most Americans instinctively would rather fend for themselves versus depending on the crumbs that the govt. tosses them.

    Wrong.
    Tax cuts help the people's pay check grow, which in turn, pays the bills.
    Economics isn't the Democrat's strongest attribute.
