Joe Manchin wants America to believe progressives are holding the bi-partisan infrastructure bill hostage. It is he who is holding the working-class hostage.
Joe Manchin is holding America hostage on infrastructure bill
Joe Manchin is full of it. It is clear based on the reasons he provided for not currently supporting the Build Back Better bill that he is but a corporate shill.
Manchin claims Progressives are holding the bipartisan infrastructure bill that is not really paid for hostage. Manchin claims he is not currently supporting the Build Back Better bill because it is inflationary and it will provide more social programs when we cannot afford the ones we currently have.
Manchin fails to note that economists said the Build Back Better will lower inflation. The bill is paid for with tax increases on the rich and corporations. He fails to note that if we billed income appropriately there would be no social services funding issues.
Manchin’s state desperately needs public investments. They need both physical infrastrucre and more social services. Sadly, his allegiance is to the corporatocracy.
48 Senators support the bill. Two are not yet on board. Who is hold what hostage?
