“None of us should ever misrepresent to the American people what the real cost of legislation is,” advised Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (W.Va.) commenting on Biden’s latest spending boondoggle that passed the House late Friday. “What I see are shell games,” he warned. “Budget gimmicks” that will eventually double the cost of the $1.75 trillion plan.

Manchin was concerned not only with the misrepresented costs, but also with overstatements of revenue that would lead to even more borrowing.

He added, “I’m open to supporting a final bill that helps move our country forward, but I’m equally open to voting against a bill that hurts our country.”
