Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) is defending his recent dissent from the Democrat Party agenda, saying he has always favored more moderate policies.

“I’ve not voted any differently than I voted for 10 years. I’ve always been very moderate, very centrist,” said Manchin. “I tell people, I’m fiscally responsible and socially compassionate. And I want to find that middle…and I think there’s always a middle to find.”

On Sunday, Manchin said he’s recently been under attack by far-left Democrats for failing to support their $6 trillion spending wish list along with other radical policy proposals. The West Virginia senator said he believes the U.S. should be able to afford any of its spending plans prior to be putting in place, so that there is no additional debt accumulated.

Manchin has continuingly said he will not support passing a $6 trillion infrastructure package. Experts have said Manchin is politically vulnerable because of his home state of West Virginia being a heavily Republican voting area.
