West Virginia moderate Democrat Joe Manchin is likely to again incite leftists in his party after he made the decision not to endorse another presidential candidate for President Joe Biden.
Biden nominated Robert Califf to lead the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but the nominee did not receive Manchin’s support.
Democrat Manchin noted that he opposed Califf’s nomination when former President Barack Obama first made him a candidate in 2016, adding that West Virginians had suffered during his short term. (February 2016 to January 20, 2017) in this role.
“Manchin opposes the nomination of Robert Califf to run the FDA: My objections are nothing new. In fact, exactly five years ago the following week, I took to the Senate floor to urge my colleagues to oppose the nomination of Dr. Califf to serve under President Obama in a similar role.” Fox News reporter Chad Pergram. tweeted.
“Manchin: In the 5 years since Dr. Califf was confirmed, more than 400,000 Americans and 5,000 West Virginians have died from drug overdoses… .aliff bears a lot of responsibility for these deaths.” Pergram continueManchin’s comment report.
In fact, it was six years before Califf’s nomination took place, but nevertheless, Manchin has said he will oppose him again.
“For the rest of my life I can’t understand why this administration is so determined to ask each of us in the Senate to recertify a man who once had a chance to make a difference but show us who he really is. Who is. Don’t expect a different result,” Manchin continued, according to Pergram’s report.
West Virginia Senator conclusion was very clear: “If he had been given another chance to lead the FDA, it would not have happened. I will vote no for Dr. Califf’s nomination and I have never believed more deeply in a vote that I will vote than I do now. “
Manchin has proven to be an insurmountable obstacle to Biden and his agenda throughout the presidency, effectively killing off the “Build Back Better” law before Christmas because he feels find it too expensive and will only increase inflation.
“I did everything humanly possible. And you know my worries that I had, and I still have these concerns,” Manchin said, noting that residents in his home state of West Virginia have already felt the impact of the price spike. suddenly.
“It’s true, it’s harming people in West Virginia, it’s making it almost impossible for them to keep going to work. Gasoline costs, groceries, utility bills, all of these things are affecting every aspect of their lives and you start to look at – then you have debt that we’re carrying $29 trillion, you also have the geopolitical unrest that we have. You have COVID, the variant of COVID, and that is devastating again, people fear,” he said.
The national debt is now overcome $30 trillion under Biden and the Democratic-controlled Congress.
“With my family, I know everyone cares, so when you have these things coming to you the way they are now, I’ve always said this, Bret: if I can’t go home and solve the problem. I like it to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it, and I can’t vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I can not. I tried everything humanly possible, I just couldn’t get there,” Manchin added.
