Mistake? Hopes he isn't wrong again??? So Manchin is taking the blame for this inflation?  If so, he just sank his career and IF inflation continues, hopefully he'll lose his seat.

Manchin admits 'mistake' saying past spending bill wouldn't cause inflation, hopes he isn't wrong again

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., explained why he agreed to support a new spending package, promising that it will not raise taxes or worsen inflation, while admitting that he was wrong about a previous spending bill.

In a  "Fox News Sunday," interview, host Bret Baier pointed out that last year, Manchin appeared on the same program and said that a previous Democratic spending bill, the American Rescue Plan, would not lead to inflation. On Sunday, Manchin admitted he was wrong about that.

"Why should Americans believe you now when you say this new bill will not exacerbate inflation?" Baier asked.

"I’ll make sure I don't make that mistake again," Manchin said. "Bottom line, I'll make sure I didn't make that mistake again."........

I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.
    I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

Joe, be wrong with your own money, not ours.

He claimed today this latest Schumer-Manchin disaster of a bill wouldn't raise taxes. That, of course, is a lie.
When the righteous increase, the people rejoice,

Manchin has changed his tune a bit.  What has Chuckie promised him or what does Chuckie have on him?? Of course it's going to raise taxes and will be yet another disaster inflicted upon Americans.
