Manchin: I Won’t Support a Multi-Trillion Dollars Bill Without Greater Clarity, About Why Congress Chooses to Ignore Inflation

‘None of us should ever misrepresent to the American people what the real cost of legislation is’

EXCERPT:

MANCHIN: "I for one won’t support a multi-trillion dollars bill without greater clarity, about why Congress chooses to ignore the serious effects of inflation and debt that have on our economy and existing government programs. For example, how can I in good conscience vote for a bill that proposes massive expansion to social programs when vital programs like Social Security and Medicare face insolvency and benefits could start being reduced as soon as 2026 and Medicare in 2033, and Social Security. How does that make sense? I don’t think it does. Meanwhile, elected leaders continue to ignore exploding inflation, that our national debt continues to grow and interest payments on debt will start to rapidly increase when the Fed has to start raising interest rates to try to slow down this runaway inflation.“
