This Shifty Dem Just Exposed Himself

Well planned, house democrat!

As Bonchie pointed out yesterday, Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin is continuing to play the type of hardball politics with his own party on massively bloated spending bills that Republicans are happily injecting into their veins on a daily basis.

In many ways, Manchin is sounding like a Republican these days, which has prompted some to suggest he finally give in and come on over to the dark side with the rest of the evil Republicans. He won’t, though, because he knows right now he’s the most powerful man on Capitol Hill in either party.

In any event, during what was purported to be a “press conference” Thursday but which in reality looked like swarms of reporters ambushing Manchin, the native West Virginian explained that he wasn’t budging on his topline number of $1.5 trillion because he had done the math. He likened his decision-making process to how families do their budgets at home. They take into account what they have coming in, look at what they need versus what they want, and then buy what they need based on what they have.

The video below is some nine minutes long, but Manchin made these comments in the first minute of the clip. Watch:

A few hours later, House Democrat John Yarmuth (Ky.) did an interview on CNN, where he tried a little budgetsplaining on Manchin in response to his presser. In the process, however, he exposed himself.

“I read Joe Manchin’s statement, I’ve listened to him. He has no understanding of how the federal government monetary system works when he compared it yesterday to his household income. That has no relevance to what we can do,” Yarmuth explained. “It’s not a question of what we can afford. The federal government can afford anything that it feels it needs to do, and right now that’s what we ought to be focused on.”

Yarmuth’s comments were so shocking that even the CNN host Erin Burnett’s mouth dropped open. Watch:

He went on to tell Burnett that in the scheme of things, $3.5 trillion is “pretty inconsequential”:

“It’s $3.4 trillion over 10 years. We’re going to spend twice as much during that time on defense,” he said. “If you take the entire add-up, all of the things we’re proposing to do, it would be essentially about 5 percent more than we will spend otherwise. We’re going to spend $61 trillion over the next 10 years. So to add another $3.4 trillion or $5 trillion to it is very—I think it’s pretty inconsequential when you consider all the benefits to the American people.”

When you watch and read all this keep in mind that Yarmuth is the Chairman of the House Budget Committee and he’s going on record as saying the government can spend however much it wants on whatever it wants.

This is something Republicans have long known about how Democrats and, sadly, how some Republicans have operated in the past, too, but this guy was essentially saying the quiet part out loud.

Republicans – and not just the ones in his Kentucky House district – need to play this one on loop in national campaign ads next year so the millions who are still struggling to make ends meet and are having to make sacrifices big-government Democrats like Yarmuth don’t have to can see just how little they care about not only spending the money taxpayers worked hard to earn but also spending money they don’t have, which means future generations will be on the hook.

The especially funny thing about all this is that Manchin is not a budget hawk by a long shot. Maybe he’s doing some of this on principle, but I suspect most of this he’s doing simply because he knows he can.

And as long as he does, we get to sit back and enjoy it.

  1. ” House Democrat John Yarmuth (Ky.) “, needs to help pass the lower number that the senate already agreed to,…. Then Mr Yarmouth, needs to cough the rest of the balance himself from personal and party coffers….. Even ocrazy-o cortex never uttered a comment that dumb,…. Has This Guy never heard of Inflation? ,…. maybe he should read about Jeff Davis economy,…. the last time that Demons facilitated unfunded spending of that magnitude (comparatively speaking),…. it seems to me their scrip , was nearly as worthless as our congress,…. You could at least wipe your butt with the scrip

  2. So, the government can spend anything it wants on whatever it wants per Yarmouth.. interesting. So if they wanted to they could provide housing, food, medicines, etc to all of our veterans who are homeless, after faithfully serving our country…. our senior citizens could get the medicines they need without forfeiting groceries, children and homeless Americans could sleep in beds instead of on dangerous streets, God’s animals could be taken care of, and on and on. So, why isn’t this done? Do they not want to?

  4. I think he knows who is going to foot the bill. It’s called higher taxes for socialist congress. That 3.5 bill needs to be ripped up and start over again without pet projects. The American people are watching very carefully who does what to this pyramid scheme.

  5. “””yarmuth””” must have gone to the same school of “LOWER LEARNING” as ”’aoc”””! Any business owner knows that by borrowing over her or his means means the death of the business! ANYWHERE in the world. ( unless you’re a chinese or russian Communist leader!
    Thanks to Sinema and Manchin for their stance!

  6. Where is this idiot from…….freaking Pluto??? Just like all the democrats, don’t care that the money comes from the American taxpayer!!!! They steal enough while in office to cover what hits their taxes!!!! I pray that something extraordinary comes along to get these evil people out of office!!!

  7. Isnt it funny.how the group of people screaming the rich are evil.Are making themselves rich off “unlimited money”. Lets call it as it is. you come in as a barmaid.Now you are worth over a million. this 3.5 is going into pockets.And not citizens or the needy. Personally there is plenty of jobs.If you need money.Companies are paying people bonuses to show up.

  8. Nonsense: Manchin did not “expose” himself!
    He knows that the program Biden has proposed would put all US citizens in chains of DEBT SLAVERY – and that form of it not less oppressive than the old way was – it’s even worse:
    A slave was worth a lot of money and worth keeping alive and well, if one had any sense of economy
    – a DEBT SLAVE is worth nothing and can be left without work, money, health, any dignity: left to die!
    In so far, Manchin behaves like a responsible “owner” or employer: He does NOT WANT THAT!
    His Confederate/Democrat/KKK party fellows are just as reckless as the bad Southerners (most were not like that!) and don’t care who freezes to death in winter or starves to death in front of a KFC.
    Give Manchin praise where he deserves it: Holding back a cheakily planned “Black Friday”.

  9. One could hope that manchin got common sense, honor and ethics but don’t count on it. He is like Schumer, or shifty shiff it’s a game – I suppose if he gets what he wants his whole thot process will change. No one in congress of DC is dependable to do the right thing, you can count on them to do what benefits them.

  10. I vote no to any bills that involve more than one agenda…..you want roads and bridges vote on a bill that only allows for roads and bridges…..budgets are the american way of living….unnecessary spending needs to stop….

  11. Yarmouth just proved that Biteme joe biden is not the only stupid fool in DC!!!
    P.S.- Yarmouth just got himself unelected in 2022!!!

  12. I now believe that Democratic politicians have reached ‘herd insanity’. Nothing they say makes sense to the average American. They tell us that the situation at our southern border is under control, but they can’t tell us where all the ‘refugees’ escaped to. They tell us that the withdrawal from Afghanistan was carried out perfectly. We know that thousands of Americans and supporters were stranded and the administration has no idea how many are still in country. The Democrats tell us their massive spending bill will cost us nothing. Yet, the bill is set to raise taxes on corporations, small businesses, the wealthy, and on capital gains. So what happens. Corporations move offshore and mitigate the onerous new claims on their finances. They raise prices to cover the additional expenses. Who pays? You and I when we make any kind of purchase. And, the Democrats also tell us that inflation will not be a problem. In fact, Biden and the Democrats are running television ads in Atlanta claiming their badly misnamed ‘Build Back Better’ campaign is lowering costs for Georgians. Hogwash. It is apparent these people are far removed from reality. It is also evident they haven’t made any purchases since Biden took office. Everything we use is costing more – a lot more -than just a few months back.
    My most fervent hope is the American people are smart enough to see how Biden and his minions are destroying the greatest country that has ever existed on Earth. We can turn this dangerous path we are on by electing solid, proven conservative Senators, Representatives, Governors, state legislators, and county/city officials.
