WATCH: Joe Manchin Puts His Foot Down After Biden Begs Senate To Nuke The Filibuster

Since the Democrats can’t figure out how to pass legislation the old fashioned way, they want to nuke the Filibuster so they can get everything they want with the snap of their fingers.



On Tuesday, Biden once again implored the Senate to get rid of the filibuster rules in the Senate to raise the debt limit.

“Oh, I think that’s a real possibility,” Biden said when asked if he would want to end the filibuster to prevent the United States from defaulting on the it’s debt.

Sadly (for sleepy Joe), the left needs support from every Democrat in the Senate in order to make that happen.

Enter Joe Manchin.

“We are not going to default as a country. We will not default. That’s the responsibility we have. As Senators, as Congressmen, as 535 of us are responsible to protect this great country and an equal branch of government. I truly implore both leaders — my Caucus Leader and the Majority Leader is Chuck Schumer, and the basically the Minority Leader is Mitch McConnell — I implore them to engage, start working, work this out. There should not be a crisis. I’ve been very, very clear where I stand — where I stand on the filibuster. I don’t have to repeat that. I think I’ve been very clear. Nothing changes,” Manchin told reporters on Wednesday.

“But the bottom line is we have a responsibility to be the adults. Our leadership has the responsibility to lead. And that’s what I’m asking and imploring them to do. We should not have these artificial crises. We are not going to default on our debt. We are still basically the currency of the world and we will remain that. So anybody who thinks any different than that is basically speculating for the sake — for the sake of theatrics. Let’s get on with the business of this country and making sure the people have the opportunities…So, the only thing I can say at this time to Leader Schumer and to Minority Leader McConnell is please, lead. Lead. Work together. This is a democracy. Democracy only works when all sides work for the same common goal, and that is to keep the United States of America united. Thank you all,” he concluded.

Kudos to Manchin for standing his ground. He has been harassed and threatened by the thugs on the left, but he has refused to back down.
