Joe Manchin cast the deciding vote for the so-called Inflation Reduction Act, and it may end up costing him his political career if a new poll is to be believed.
Manchin, who had originally pledged not to sign on to any new spending bill during the country’s current inflationary boom, suddenly switched his position at the end of July. The bill he negotiated, which cost nearly a trillion dollars, was full of wasteful green energy subsidies and payouts to special interests. It also represented a stabbing in the back of Republican senators who had trusted him to keep his word about reconciliation after voting for the CHIPS Act.
The bill for Manchin’s move is going to come due in more ways than one. Triton Polling and Research surveyed him against three possible Republican challengers in 2024, and the results are stunning. MORE
You fucked up, Joe, you trusted them. You’ve been in the swamp long enough to know better, so you deserve what you got.
I would restate that, his political career as a representative may be over but he has bigger aspirations. And they owe him, he will be A-Okay.
Two years plus is an eternity in politics. I wouldnt be too hopeful
Joe just turned 75 – he’s never worked a day in his life – and even if he’s defeated, he’ll STILL never have to work – if he lives to be 150!
Some retribution for being a traitor.

Which only proves that D’s are either incapable of learning from history, or simply don’t give a shit about it. Bart Stupak is probably laughing his ass off somewhere right now.
Joe Munchkin must have Deliverance banjo genes in his family. What a dumb ass.
^^^ When itz all said and done, there’ll be nuthin left but the squeal!
After all, he’s a Democrat! What the hell did you expect?
Looks like a guarantee for Joe
