Verlede maand, Manchin torpedoed – at least temporarily – President Biden’s “Bou Beter Terug” agenda, kwessie van baie aspekte van die wetgewing, insluitend die multi-triljoen-dollar-koste.
Van Drew vertel “Jou wêreld” that he applauds Manchin’s thoughtful consideration of the legislation that was otherwise being pushed hard by Democrat leaders like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.
“I think that Joe has to take a look and see all of the other things that [die Demokrate] want to do. Look at the BBB, what I call the Big Bad Bill – Look at what it does: It goes into people’s [finansiële] rekeninge. Anybody that spends more than $ 10,000, which is everyone. They’re going to hire 80,000 IRS agents and spend $ 800 miljard,” Van Drew said. “You have to be kidding me on the things that they want to do to change America.”
