When I was about thirteen years old, my father gave me a piece of advice that I have been thinking about ever since and have been trying to live by my whole life.
He said to me that the two times in your life where you are at your most honest is when you tell someone that you hate that they are right and that when you tell someone you like they are wrong. It is the most dignity that you can ever have.
Now, there are a lot of people in theDemocratic Party that agree with everything that Joe Biden says. This leads me to the other thing that dad taught me, never believe everything that a politician says.
Seems that there are some in Congress that are taking that to heart when it comes to Joe Biden.
Senators Jon Tester of Montana and Joe Manchin of West Virginia went back and forth regarding support for the Keystone XL oil pipeline, according to The NY Post. The Democratic Senators defied the Biden administration’s decision to stop the Keystone XL oil pipeline but then retracted their decision.
First the Dem. Senators voted to support a Republican amendment that held support for the pipeline in the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer brought forth an amendment that removed the Keystone XL provision as well as two others.
Tester and Manchin voiced their support for the Schumer amendment, ultimately reversing their earlier votes in favor of the pipeline. Vice President Kamala Harris supports Schumer’s amendment. Sen. Steve Daines sponsored the Keystone pipeline amendment.
“Early this morning while the American people were asleep, Senate Democrats chose to flip flop on their support for my Keystone XL pipeline amendment, as well as @SenatorBraun’s amendment to support fracking,” Daines tweeted.
“They thought they could get away with it while the American people were asleep. Folks will know that when it came down to it, every single Senate Democrat chose to stand with the job-killing, Green New Deal radicals over American union jobs and blue-collar workers,” An aide to Daines said.
“For those representing Western states and for those that flip-flopped on their support, you’ll have some explaining to do, not just on your opposition to the pipeline and fracking, but for your misleading attempt to pull a fast one to protect a partisan, far-Left agenda.”
“Senator Tester has and continues to support the Keystone Pipeline, and any statement to the contrary is incorrect. He has consistently fought for the project for a decade, and just this week met with President Biden and directly reiterated his support for the pipeline’s construction in Montana,” Feldman said.
