Joe Biden’s massive spending bill appears to be dead after the lone pro-life Democrat in the U.S. Senate said Sunday that he cannot support it.
Life News reports:
On Fox News, U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia criticized Biden’s $2 trillion “Build Back Better” bill, saying he cannot justify supporting such “mammoth” spending when the country already is in deep debt, according to Townhall.
“I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I tried everything humanly possible,” Manchin told the news outlet. “This is a no on this legislation.”
In a statement, the Democrat senator said he cannot justify voting on such radical legislation to the voters in his state. West Virginia is strongly pro-life.
“I have always said if I can’t go back home and explain it, I can’t vote for it,” Manchin continued. “Despite my best efforts, I cannot explain the sweeping Build Back Better Act in West Virginia and I cannot vote to move forward on this mammoth piece of legislation.”
