This week on the Senate floor, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said, “We can no longer, in good conscience, cut services and programs at home, raise taxes or — and this is very important — lift the debt ceiling in order to fund nation-building in Afghanistan.” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) then attacked Manchin, saying his remarks are characteristic of the “isolationist-withdrawal-lack-of-knowledge-of-history attitude that seems to be on the rise.” Manchin responded last night on CNN, saying he’s “proud to serve” with McCain and that he’s “a great American,” but added, “I don’t have the experience he has. But what I do have, like most West Virginians, is a little common sense.” Watch it:
