Joe Manchin Offers to Babysit West Virginia Kids So Mom Can Work

Charleston, WV — After Joe Manchin rejected the Democrats’ Build Back Better act, the generally even-tempered West Virginia Senator made a surprising offer that some called “typical Joe” and critics called ridiculously unscalable.

During a Fox News Sunday television interview said he could not vote for the bill.

“I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.” “This is a no on this legislation. I have tried everything I know to do. But I’ll tell you what I can do. I’ll do what I think every American should do and reach out to their neighbors to see if they need help.”

Mr. Manchin didn’t initially elaborate on what he meant by what “every American should do and reach out to their neighbors,” but later, a spokesperson clarified the Senator’s proposal.

“Senator Manchin loves the people of the great State of West Virginia. We’re self-sufficient people who do not need government handouts. So the Senator will model what he thinks is the right thing to do, and work with families where he can to make them successful.”

When asked for specific examples, his spokesperson grew annoyed.

“Well, for one, the Senator himself has offered to babysit Charleson family so their mothers can go back to work. Who needs daycare when you have Joe Manchin. Think about it.”

According to his office, Senator Manchin plans on implementing his plan with the Davis family of Elkview over the Christmas break.
