In case you were wondering, Sen. Jon Tester is ready and willing to vote for the $3.5 trillion budget-busting radical goodies package — unless his wife tells him otherwise!
Tester told Politico that he won’t follow Joe Manchin’s lead and vote to halt the socialist infrastructure bill.
“Are you crazy? Are you trying to get me shot? I’d never, ever want to be aligned with Joe Manchin. My wife would divorce me,” Tester told reporters Burgess Everett and Marianne Levine.
So there you have it. Tester’s vote in Congress is controlled by his wife, not by what’s in the best interest of Montana. Otherwise he would, at the very least, agree with Manchin that $3.5 trillion is too much to spend on radical socialist programs — SINCE WE ARE BROKE!!! But no.
“Joe is Joe. Joe is going to hammer it out, the way he wants to hammer it out and go from there. We both have similar values but we certainly don’t think alike,” added Tester.
No one should be surprised by the allegiance of Tester to the radical politics of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. His votes are consistently out of touch with his Montana constituents, who stupidly keep voting him into office.
In a 2019 column about Montana’s two-term Democrat governor, Steve Bullock, I called these manipulative Democrats RAMs.
“They are ‘Radicals Acting Moderate,’ and somehow the true moderates in the Republican Party never catch on to the trick. If a RAM claims to be for workers’ rights, women’s rights and equal rights, they can always count on the votes of Republicans who never notice that what they wind up with is socialism, infanticide and a kick in the pants.”
Pay attention, Montana! Sen. Tester thinks he will “get shot” if he aligns with Joe Manchin. Presumably that means he is terrified of his Democratic leadership if he steps out of line and actually represents his state instead of the Democratic socialist agenda.
I don’t know if Tester is stupid enough to run for re-election in 2024, but probably the better question is whether Montana is stupid enough to re-elect him again!
