Joe Manchin is a true “moderate” Democrat, and thank goodness, because we need a couple right now.

The West Virginia Democrat has been one of the few voices of reason, along with Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, in the age of far-out whacko-left-wing lunacy since Joe Biden was installed as president.

The Democrats don’t care how many seats they lose next year as long as they ‘win’ on the legislative front.

The $3.5 trillion behemoth legislation they want to pass will kill off their congressional majorities but will addict nearly every American in the future to some sort of government-funded payout, and that’s what this bill is really about.

But Manchin says he can’t support it and that’s good because, in an evenly-divided Senate, Chuck Schumer needs every Democrat vote.

Trending Politics has more:

In an interview with NBC's 'Meet the Press,' the West Virginia moderate suggested that his party put the brakes on the legislation and allow for more debate rather than race to pass it ahead of a Sept. 27 deadline because there is no 'rush' to do so.

'We don't have an urgency. Don't you think we ought to debate a little more, talk about it, see what we got out there?' Manchin told host Chuck Todd.

Todd leaped in to suggest that Manchin could actually support the bill, but the Democratic senator corrected: 'No, not $3.5 trillion.'

He also refuted Todd when the host said the spending bill is only for eight-to-10 years by noting correctly that when line items are funded for that long, they rarely, if ever, go away.

'I'm just saying we need to be looking at everything and we're not,' Manchin, a former West Virginia governor, continued.

'We don't have the need to rush into this and get it done within one week because there's some deadline we're meeting or someone's going to fall through the cracks,' he added.
