(RepublicanInformer.com)- Moderate Democratic Senator for West Virginia Joe Manchin is currently the only thing standing in the way of the Democratic Party passing their extremist Build Back Better legislation, and potentially even removing the Senate filibuster to make it easier for legislators pass radical legislation with a simple majority vote.
And Manchin’s refusal to let the Democrats have their own way has attracted the attention of some of the biggest names in the Democratic Party, including former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
Manchin’s stance on the filibuster – which is that the filibuster helps bipartisanship and promotes compromise, rather than allowing partisan legislation to be passed on a whim – has attracted substantial criticism from the radical wings of the party, and the senator has even told colleagues recently that he has been called by the two former presidents.
Not only that, but extreme-left TV host Oprah Winfrey even gave him a call, in the hope he would simply give in.
Politico reports that the three big names are pushing for Manchin to vote in favor of getting rid of the Senate filibuster, which requires 60 votes to pass legislation, to make it easy for the Democrats to pass their so-called “voting rights” legislation with a simple majority.
By “voting rights,” of course, what the Democrats are really talking about is a concerted effort to make it easier for people to cast double votes, and the removal of all voter ID requirements.
Why would the Obamas, the Clintons, and even Oprah Winfrey want it to be easier for people to cast illegal votes, and for illegal aliens to vote in federal elections? Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that illegal aliens are more likely to vote for the party that supports granting them rights they don’t deserve…
The pressure on Manchin is ramping up all the time, especially now that Senate Leader Chuck Schumer has set a deadline of January 17 for the Senate to change the filibuster rules to get their new voter laws passed.
Only a matter of days, and the decision of one man, stand between the future of American democracy.
