The only silver lining in Biden’s failed administration (so far) has been moderate Sen. Joe Manchin. This senator might not have the power to check most of Biden’s radical agenda, but his vote in the Senate has shut down the very worst of Biden’s madness. And this is largely thanks to the fact that he represents a very red state that went for Trump in the last two elections.
Manchin killed Biden’s “Build Back Better” spending bill—which would have destroyed the U.S. economy and put millions on welfare. He also refused to kill the filibuster, which would have opened the doors to a runaway Senate (and the death of our elections). But Manchin is far from done spoiling Biden’s agenda.
To the shock of many, Biden has nominated an FDA head who disgraced himself under Obama. Outraged, Manchin has made it clear that he will not support this killer.
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said in no uncertain terms that he would not support President Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Robert Califf…
“Manchin: In the five years since Dr. Califf was confirmed, more than 400,000 Americans, and 5,000 West Virginians have died from drug related overdose….Califf bears a great deal of responsibility for these deaths,” […]
“I cannot, for the life of me, understand why this administration is so committed to asking each of us in the Senate to reconfirm a person who had the opportunity to make a difference but show us who he really was. Do not expect a different outcome,” Manchin continued, according to Pergram’s report. [Source: Daily Wire]
It appears Manchin is connecting Obama’s former FDA and Biden’s current nominee with the opioid crisis that has cost thousands of Americans their lives. He is blaming over 400,000 drug overdoses on Robert Califf, who was the FDA head during the Obama administration. During those years, the opioid crisis took off, leading to numerous deaths thanks to prescription drugs.
It seems Manchin is blaming Califf because he helped sign off of drugs that turned Americans into addicts and ended the lives of hundreds of thousands. And he blasted the Biden administration for picking this man to run the FDA again, despite his terrible track record.
I find it shocking that Biden would pick yet-another failed member of Obama’s administration. This further suggests that this administration is nothing more than a puppet regime, which does the bidding of the Democrat establishment. This isn’t the first loser Biden has picked to take over an important agency or department. One previous nominee was blasted by Bernie Sanders, over her vulgar tweets toward senators. Another nominee, a confirmed Marxist, Biden wanted to run our currency.
Is Biden insane? Does he have any idea what he is doing? It’s hard to think otherwise, given his track record. But hopefully, Manchi’s strong words will compel the rest of the Senate to reject Califf and maybe save some lives.
