GOP REP AND FORMER DEM JEFF VAN DREW LOBBIES FOR JOE MANCHIN TO SWITCH PARTIES AS HE DID

U.S. House Rep Jeff Van Drew (R-NJ), who switched parties in 2020 due to his opposition to former President Donald Trump’s first impeachment, is lobbying U.S. Sen Joe Manchin (D-WV) to do the same.

Yesterday, Drew told Fox News’ “Your World” that Manchin should take a close look at all that his party is working to accomplish while they hold the majority in Washington.

“I think the sales pitch is very simple. The Democratic party has consistently changed more and more. It’s leaving middle-class America, it’s leaving working America,” Van Drew began.

Van Drew offered to help Manchin if he made the decision and said that he “feels so much better” for changing parties.

While Van Drew acknowledged that his party switch had a lot to do with the Trump impeachment, there was also “much, much more” beyond that concern.

“I have to think the people of West Virginia have to look at Joe Manchin and appreciate what he’s done but say there’s a lot more,” Van Drew insisted.

Van Drew said of Manchin, “I think that Joe has to take a look and see all of the other things that (the Democrats) want to do.”

“Look at the BBB, what I call the Big Bad Bill – Look at what it does: It goes into people’s (financial) accounts. Anybody that spends more than $10,000, which is everyone,” Van Drew noted.

Van Drew explained, “They’re going to hire 80,000 IRS agents and spend $800 billion. You have to be kidding me on the things that they want to do to change America.”

“It’s not just this one bill which is a horrific bill. I hope he doesn’t make any compromises on it,” Van Drew declared.

After Manchin put the brakes on President Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda, taking issue with many aspects of the legislation including the multi-trillion-dollar cost, Van Drew said that he applauds Manchin’s thoughtful consideration of the legislation that was otherwise being pushed hard by Democrat leaders like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
