“Are you enjoying your position of power maybe a little too much?” Chris Wallace Corners Manchin

  • During an interview on Fox News on Sunday, Chris Wallace noted that Senator Manchin had become a key vote when it comes to preventing the Dems agenda from moving forward in the Senate. “Do you like being the most powerful member of Congress, the swing vote in a 50/50 senate? Do you like that, sir?” Wallace asked.
  • “No, I do not and I did not lobby for this, did not seek it out,” Manchin insisted. Wallace pointed out that Manchin has been pivotal in killing Democratic initiatives, including the $15 per hour minimum wage, reforming the filibuster and increasing the number of justices on the Supreme Court.
  • “You are on four Sunday shows today… Are you enjoying your position of power maybe a little too much?” Wallace wondered. “I sure hope not,” Manchin insisted. “Oh, my goodness. That would be horrible. That’s not — no. I want to make sure people understand. I am in that common-sense middle. That’s who I am.”
