On Sunday, Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) slammed Democrat President Joe Biden and his administration for the neglect of many of the problems that have emerged since Biden took office in January 2021.  

Manchin made the comments during a CBS News interview with Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation,” while discussing the recent train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio.

“It’s time for us to get serious about this. We’re moving many, many products, many more products on the rails and on our roads than we ever did before. And we have a lot of people who don’t want any pipelines. Pipelines would help alleviate a lot of this problem with the oil that we need in our country and we will be using for quite some time to do it safer,” Manchin said. “But out of sight, out of mind. They are thinking, if you don’t have a pipeline, you won’t be using the product. Well, that’s far from the truth. And this is the results of people just not making good decisions. And it’s what’s broken in West Virginia and broken across the country as far as in Washington, the politics.”

Brennan brought up Manchin’s “fiery speech” in the Senate in which he called out the Biden administration and many Democrats for their “out-of-control spending and are refusing to negotiate.” 

Manchin said that the Biden administration should be focused on getting back “to normal” since the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

“We’ve gone from $3.5 trillion in spending to over $6.2 trillion in spending every year,” he said. “That’s just unacceptable. You’ve got to sit down. Anybody that thinks we don’t have a problem in Washington, anybody that thinks that the politics is not broken in Washington is not living in reality, does not want to face the facts and the truth.”

Manchin went on to say that the United States doesn’t “even have a budget anymore” and that the president is currently violating U.S. law because he is a month late in putting out his budget.

“We’ve got a runaway debt. We got inflation that’s killing people,” Manchin said. “We’ve got an unsecured energy. We have a border that’s out of control.”
