'Moderate' Sen. Joe Manchin is totally owned by his party

Train Full of Republican Lawmakers Collides With Truck, Killing Driver

Vice President Mike Pence launched himself into the fray of this year's mid-term elections Wednesday, assuring House and Senate Republicans that the White House will stand behind them on the campaign trail. "Now, that might make [Senate Democratic Leader] Chuck Schumer and [House Democratic Leader] Nancy Pelosi pretty happy, but West Virginia needs to let him know: you expect better from Joe". 'We've got our work cut out for us, but we've got a story to tell.

"I was in WV a few months ago & I spoke to the WV Chamber of Commerce". "Joe voted "no" to give working families more of your hard-earned money".

"When the time came to repeal & replace the disaster of Obamacare, Joe voted NO".

"Folks, Joe's just gonna keep voting against West Virginia", Pence said. "If you think $1,000 is crumbs, you live in a different world than I live in".

"I've voted 54 percent of the time with the Trump administration when I think it's what's best for West Virginia", Manchin tweeted Thursday afternoon.

Manchin responded in a statement: "The vice president's comments are exactly why Washington Sucks". "Manchin may have intimated to the vice president that he was on board with tax cuts", the West Virginia Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom", adding that Republicans were talking about expanding businesses and giving bonuses for workers in their state with the reform legislation.




But the concerns did not appear to faze Pence, who assured lawmakers on Wednesday: "President Trump and I are going to be with you every step of the way in 2018".

Manchin, who generally portrays himself as the most conservative Democrat in the Senate, told colleagues last Tuesday that he meant to run for reelection.

Pence's tweets hitting Manchin occurred as he was scheduled to make two speeches in Greenbrier County, West Virginia, according to the Charleston Gazette-Mail. He starts his visit by touring a business in White Sulphur Springs.

U.S. President Donald Trump, flanked by Vice President Mike Pence, delivers remarks recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel at the White House, on December 6.

A tragic train wreck nearly put an early end to this year's GOP policy retreat as lawmakers grappled with whether or not to carry on after an Amtrak train carrying them to the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. collided with a garbage truck and resulted in at least one fatality.
