We knew that it wouldn't take too long for Joe Manchin to shed his conservative camouflage and leave it behind in the Mountain state. Well, it turns out that he has gone all in for the job killing, socialist agenda on his first day in the Senate. After voting to make anti gun, cap and trade supporting Harry Reid Majority Leader, Manchin voted with Reid on two other measures yesterday. He voted for the job killing FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (S. 510) and the Paycheck Fairness Act(S. 3772).
We already detailed some of the egregious provisions of the food bill, as well as the disappointing fact that 14 Republicans supported it. Luckily, the Republicans held together and blocked cloture on the paycheck social engineering bill by a 58-41 vote. Ben Nelson was the only Democrat to oppose both measures, while Manchin voted in goose step with the leadership. This bill does not mandate equal pay for women with the same education, experience, and qualifications for the same job in the same place of employment. That was already required in the original equal Pay Act of 1963. The only purpose of this law is to expand the requirement to peg women's wages to established salaries for males everywhere. This will expose job creators to potential litigation demanding established male wages of other workplaces or other regions that have a higher cost of living. The only possible outcome of such legislation would be increased unemployment and higher costs to produce goods and services during a recession. So this bill is taxation, regulation, and litigation rolled up in one monstrosity. Yet, Joe Manchin didn't bat an eyelash as he cast his vote in support of this bill.
Manchin will stand for reelection in 2012 with Obama on the ballot in a solid red state. There is no reason why he shouldn't be defeated in a walk. Any takers?
The State of West Virginia continues to amaze in their senatorial votes....Senator Byrd until he died...and now down another bottomless hole...just difficult to understand.
How many times will people keep falling for tried and true ploy of a socialist Democrat running to the right of Ronald Reagan just for the purposes of being elected? Were the people of WV who voted for yet another socialist really that blind?
“How many times will people keep falling for tried and true ploy of a socialist Democrat running to the right of Ronald Reagan just for the purposes of being elected? Were the people of WV who voted for yet another socialist really that blind?”
Yes, they were, and still continue to be, blind. WV voters are fooled over and over again by politicians like Byrd, Rockefeller, Manchin, Rahall, who continue to be “there for the coal miner” and then go to Washington and go against the will of the people. WV voters will never learn. It’s not what a candidate says during a campaign it’s what you THINK they are going to do. Manchin will be a party-line Dem voter in the Senate and he must be taken dow in 2012!!!!! WV keep clinging to the Democrats because they are afraid the Republicans will take away their welfare checks or bogus disability checks. Shame on you, West Virginia voters. You get what you deserve!!!!
I understand that Manchin is working on bringing the arts to West Virginia.
West Virginia is a preview of the twilight of the white race.
Thanks NRA for Reid and Manchin.
