Vice President Pence's attacks are 'why Washington sucks,' Sen. Manchin says

WASHINGTON — One of the most vulnerable Democratic senators facing re-election this year had a blunt response to Vice President Mike Pence's attacks on him Wednesday.

"The vice president’s comments are exactly why Washington Sucks," West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin said in a statement.

Manchin, who recently decided to run for re-election in a state President Donald Trump won by 42 percentage points, was reacting to a series of tweets from the vice president and comments Pence made while speaking at a West Virginia company.

Billed as a speech on the positive impacts of the GOP tax cuts Trump signed into law in December, Pence criticized Manchin for voting against the tax package. Pence also attacked Manchin for not voting to get rid of "the disaster of Obamacare," not voting to defund Planned Parenthood, and not wanting to build a wall along the southern border with Mexico.

1. This is a prime example of what is going wrong

Manchin is an in-betweener. He's D in name, but just barely. I realize he's in a conservative area and needs to walk the line. The GROPers message the fuck out of their game repeatedly. And then lie on top of just being parrot heads. And poor Joe thinks it sucks. Boo fucking hoo. Fight back and actually oppose the BS going on. Call it out, use your power as a Senator, just like the Puke senators do.

Did he think Pence was there to fluff up a Dem? Pence is fluffer to one man only.
