@Sen_JoeManchin: Mike Pence talks a good game as far as bipartisanship but I met with their team 21 times to make tax cuts larger and permanent for the middle class, not big businesses and millionaires. They decided to be strictly partisan instead of helping the middle class West Virginians.
@Sen_JoeManchin: They also wanted to kill healthcare access for 200k West Virginians and bankrupt our WV hospitals. I cosponsored 2 bipartisan bills that would prevent this. Again, they chose to be partisan.
@Sen_JoeManchin: I've voted 54% of the time with the Trump Administration when I think it's what's best for WV. There isn't another person in Congress who votes as bipartisan as I do.
@Sen_JoeManchin: My record speaks for itself. If they're attacking people like me then they don't want bipartisanship. They are not committed or sincere about making government work.
@Sen_JoeManchin: The President called me last week and invited me to the White House to talk about ways we can work together on immigration reform. So for Mike Pence to come in yesterday and start firing shots is not leadership. I'd simply urge Mr. Pence to show better leadership qualities.
