Lo scorso mese, Manchin torpedoed – at least temporarily – President Biden’s “Ricostruisci meglio” agenda, taking issue with many aspects of the legislation including the multi-trillion-dollar cost.
Van Drew told “Il tuo mondo” 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 [i Democratici] want to do. Look at the BBB, what I call the Big Bad Bill – Look at what it does: It goes into people’s [finanziario] conti. Anybody that spends more than $ 10,000, which is everyone. They’re going to hire 80,000 IRS agents and spend $ 800 miliardi,” Van Drew said. “You have to be kidding me on the things that they want to do to change America.”
