It’s not just Republicans who find fault with President Barack Obama’s budget proposals. West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin hits Obama hard in the text of a speech he is set to deliver on the Senate floor Tuesday,  Politico reports.

To be sure, Manchin isn’t happy with Republican budget proposals either, calling them “partisan” and “unrealistic.”
