Sen. Manchin says Vice President's partisan comments are "exactly why Washington Sucks"

Posted:

U.S. Senator Joe Manchin  released a statement in response to repeated comments by Vice President Mike Pence during a visit to Greenbrier County

Manchin released the following statement to WVVA:

“I am shocked that after the Vice President worked for almost a year in a divisive and partisan way to take healthcare away from almost 200,000 West Virginians, bankrupt our hospitals, and push tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and huge corporations that he would come to West Virginia and continue his partisan attacks. Last week, I worked in a bipartisan way with Senator Collins to end the shutdown, and last night President Trump called for unity and bipartisanship.  The Vice President’s comments are exactly why Washington Sucks. I’m disappointed in his comments but will continue to work to make Washington work so West Virginia and our country work.”
