McCarthy: Joe Manchin has been an 'honest' broker while his party 'overplayed their hand'

McCarthy, R-Calif., detto “Fox News Primetime” quella “I Democratici hanno commesso un errore fatale” nel far passare la revisione socioeconomica di estrema sinistra attraverso la Camera senza aver consultato o passato al Senato, suggesting the moderate Manchin did not have any opposite numbers in the lower chamber for the liberal leadership to be as concerned about.

It was surprising but if you listen to Joe Manchin, one thing about him, he has been exactly and consistently honest all the way through: He said he would and even signed an agreement he would not go higher than the $ 1.8 trilioni,” Egli ha detto.

“E adesso [The House] has voted for 87,000 IRS agents to spy on you – They voted to open the border and make people legal citizens when they came here illegally. They voted to take away work requirements [for handouts]. This is a very bad vote. But Joe Manchin kept his word. Adesso, I didn’t think it would happen,” McCarthy continued.

I thought the odds were that they [Democratici] would get something through. This is a real defeat all around, and they overplayed their hand.

SCHUMER COLPISCE MANCHIN PER NON AVER SOSTENUTO BUILD BACK MEGLIO, MAINTAINS DEMOCRATS WILL ‘FIND A WAY FORWARD’

McCarthy also reacted to the ongoing intraparty blowback toward Manchin, the sources of which have included White House Press Secretary Jennifer Psaki, Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, e Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

“[F]or those who thought they would intimidate Joe Manchin in West Virginia, they ought to look again. Joe Manchin is more popular in West Virginia today because of what he said yesterday. And they are not going to intimidate him. More people will stand with him in West Virginia,” McCarthy predicted.
