President Biden mocked Americans intelligence saying we aren’t ssmart enough to understand the issues surrounding the supply chain.
Biden said, “if we were all going out & having lunch together & I said let’s ask whoever’s in the next table, no matter what restaurant we’re in, have them explain the supply chain to us. Do you think they’d understand what we’re talking about?”

It’s no wonder Biden’s domestic agenda has collapsed thanks to Democrat Senator Joe Manchin who is still a moderate and doesn’t want to be tied to Joe.
As the Democrats try to push through Biden’s Build, Back, Better Bill Manchin announced that he has not signed off on anything.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said he didn’t sign off on a framework for a $1.75 trillion social spending bill before it was released from the White House and that he didn’t think there was a “rush” to get a deal.
“No,” Manchin said, asked if he had signed off on the framework, adding that if he had, his current pushback wouldn’t be “genuine.”
“The White House knew exactly where I stood. There was a couple of concerns that we had that we needed to work through,” Manchin said.
“I’ve been here long enough to know that when you say you signed off on things, you got to keep your word and I’m not going to be a liar or make anyone else a liar, so that’s why I hadn’t,” he added.
Manchin isn’t budging and also announced that he is opposed to any expansion of Medicare which progressives like Bernie Sanders are demanding.
Manchin expands on his views. “I’m not for any expansion that has a trust fund that is insolvent,” he says of Medicare expansion. He says he never signed off on framework, didn’t throw Biden a curveball and says: “We should have waited.” Thinks tho they’ll get something done
Manchin is not going to give Joe Biden the win he is desperately seeking.
Asked Manchin about timing: “I just think it’s going to take quite a while. You’re talking about overhauling the entire tax code. That is tremendous. And there needs to be input…And we’re not in a rush right now. The rush was trying to get everything” before Biden went overseas pic.twitter.com/qfTjbFit7j
