On Sunday, Reprehensible Ilhan Omar (D-MN) went a foul-mouthed tirade when responding to Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) saying that after he reached out to President Joe Biden, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, he will not be supporting the Build Back Better Act bill that though they claim will cost $1.7 trillion, which is bad enough, but the true cost will be trillions.
The White House already attacked Manchin, so why not the criminals from Minnesota?
“And you know, my concerns I had, and I still have these concerns and where I’m at right now, the inflation that I was concerned about, it’s not transitory, it’s real, it’s harming every West Virginian,” Manchin told Bret Baier on Fox News Sunday.
Not only did the senator from West Virginia say that he’s not going to vote for the Build Back Better bill, but he also said that he’s not going to continue negotiating with party leadership going forward. That essentially killed the bill.
“It’s making it almost difficult for them to continue, to go to their jobs, the cost of gasoline, the cost of groceries, the cost of utility bills — all of these things are hitting in every aspect of their life. And you start looking at — then you have the debt that we’re carrying, $29 trillion, you have also the geopolitical unrest that we have. You have the COVID — the COVID variant, and that is wreaking havoc again, people are concerned. I’ve been with my family. I know everyone is concerned.”
It seems Manchin is the only Democrat in the US Senate, so far, who is speaking out for the benefit of his constituents and not for growing the size of government. Do you ever hear any other Democrats talking about the pain their constituents go through having to pay high prices at the gas pump or the cost of groceries and utility bills? Do you ever hear Democrats worrying about the national debt when they’re in charge? Democrats always fight for criminals and poor people, but in the end, they always hurt the middle-class. While Democrats tell you they fight for the middle-class, when you look at their actions, it becomes obvious that they hate the middle-class.
“And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there,” Manchin continued. “This is a no on this legislation. I have tried everything I know to do. And the president has worked diligently. He’s been wonderful to work with. He knows I’ve had concerns and the problems I’ve had and, you know, the thing that we should all be directing our attention towards, the variant, a COVID that we have coming back at us in so many different aspects in different ways, it’s affecting our lives again.”
Omar responded to Manchin’s remarks during an interview on MSNBC, after being egged on by the host.
“I mean, we all knew that Senator Manchin couldn’t be trusted.”
The gall of this woman saying that a senator who is giving responsible reasons for not supporting a destructive bill can not be trusted. This is a woman who lied to the court and married her brother just to get him into the country. She violated our immigration laws and then lied to a court when she went to get divorced from her brother because he was already inside the US. Ilhan Omar is a woman who absolutely cannot be trusted.
“The excuses that he just made, I think, are complete bulls***,” Omar said. “It is really disheartening to hear him say that he has been trying to get there for the people of West Virginia because that’s a complete lie. The people of West Virginia would greatly benefit from their families having access to long-term elderly care and care for folks with disabilities. They would benefit from the expansion of the child tax credits; they will benefit from having access to pre-k. There are just so many things that, you know, the people of West Virginia desperately need. And we know that he is not working on behalf of their interests, and I really am just completely disappointed and disgusted by his reasoning.”
At the same time, the people of West Virginia don’t want their grandchildren to be paying off this spending for the rest of their lives. And that’s if this high spending doesn’t collapse our economy.

Ms. Potty Mouth Omar doesn’t take into consideration that the people of West Virginai are telling Senator Manchin they do not want the BBB bill to be passed. They DO NOT trust Joe Biden after he and Barack Obama put over 1,000 families out of work with the stroke of a pen when they shut down coal mines. Generations of coal miners were devastated by their actions to get the environmentalist watermelon vote right before the 2012 election.
Omar spoke of poor West Virginians benefitting from the BBB plan, but does Ms. Potty mouth know that in BBB Biden is reinstituting the SALT Deduction Act, which gives the largest tax cut to the wealthiest individuals in blue states by writing off their high blue state taxes from their federal taxes to be subsidized by middle-class workers? I bet the people of West Virginia know.
Progressive blue states are run by Democrats. They ran out of ideas years ago on how to help make Americans’ lives better, so they created progressive social spending programs that give away a lot of free stuff. Those programs cost a lot of money, so progressive blue states have very high tax rates; New York @ 10.9%, New Jersey @ 10.7%, and California @ 12.3%. By contrast, Pennsylvania’s income tax rate is 3.07%, and though we have a progressive tyrant Democrat governor, our legislature is controlled by Republicans. Florida has no income tax and they’re doing just fine.
So, the rich in blue states complained about the high tax rates and the Democrats in DC did their buddies in blue states a solid and created the SALT (state and local taxes) Deduction Act that lets them write off their progressive outrageously high blue state income taxes from their federal income taxes. Yes, it is unfair, but Democrats don’t care. They’re helping their rich friends to not have to pay their fair share.
This means that working-class and middle-class taxpayers have to subsidize blue state rich people to make up for the federal taxes the wealthiest individuals in blue states aren’t paying. President Donald Trump ended the practice because he knew it was unfair to middle-class people. Biden’s Build Back Better bill wants to bring it back from the dead so that the people reading this can once again subsidize blue state rich people. Remember that the next time a Democrat tells you that rich people need to pay their fair share in taxes. Using Omar’s own word, that’s bulls***.
It’s so bad now with the progressive Democrats that they publicly attack members of their own party, as if they are an enemy, if they don’t agree with their radical progressive agenda.
