Moderate Dem Senator floats dismantling Biden’s ambitious infrastructure proposal

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) advised Congress to focus on “conventional” infrastructure, throwing a massive monkey-wrench into President Joe Biden’s massive undertaking, according to The Hill

The West Virginia Democrat spoke to reporters at a press conference with other elected officials from both parties, including Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R). During his comments, Manchin said that Congress should take the Biden administration plan “step by step” and do what would garner bipartisan support.

“What we think the greatest need we have now, that can be done in a bipartisan way, is conventional infrastructure whether it’s the water, sewer, roads, bridges, Internet — things that we know need to be repaired, be fixed,” Manchin said.

“Why don’t you take the greatest need that we have and do it on something that we all agree on?” Manchin added, addressing Biden’s $2.3 trillion proposal that includes funding for in-home care, housing, clean energy, public schools and manufacturing.

According to Manchin the plan is “conceptual” and said that there should be a divide between “conventional” and “human” infrastructure.

Manchin isn’t the only Democrat asking for the mammoth bill to be broken up. Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), who is considered a close ally of Biden, has indicated that he might wish to adjust the plan down to a more achievable form.

Manchin, however, is the most conservative member of the Senate Democrats in a house that is split 50-50, with a Democrat leader.

Republicans have put together a $568 billion counteroffer that focuses on roads and bridges, public transit systems, rail, wastewater infrastructure, airports and broadband infrastructure, according to The Hill.

      1. I say both you and Kalie are full of crap. Until both of you show us your bank statements proving what you say, you’re nothing but liars!

      2. That senile brain dead Idiot could’nt
        predict wether or not his dogs will crap
        in the yard before too long.!!He has lied
        all his life and the morons that believe
        him are just as useless as he is.!

  2. Manchin is the only Democrat with any sense in Congress; the only Democrat who has any concept of unity.
    He makes me think maybe a Rep Pres and a Den VP might unite the country.
    Then I think Nah, let’s follow Texas and Florida and succeed to become the Red States of America. The Blues have the NBA, Antifa and BLM.

    1. No need to succeed , the dems and their violent followers are soon to implode. They will feast on themselves ,then the adults in the room will have a large but doable task of cleaning their mess up. And always remember , slap a democrat til they are awake.

  3. Good Job by the WV Senator — Kick Biden in the A$$ every time he opens his lying mouth!! WHAT a DISGRACE he has laid at the door of the Presidents Office. He is PURE LYING TRASH and needs to be thrown out!!!! NOW before this great nation is gone from this earth!! Supremes need to stand up for the people and have the 2020 election audited by ALL states for the FRAUD we all know happened. Democrats stole the election and will continue to lie, cheat and steal with the trash legislation HR 1! It will give them total control of elections which we do not want!! VOTE the Democrats OUT NOW!!

  4. Joe Manchineel is a true DINO. What would West Virginia have if it wasn’t for federal dollars. What did trump ever do for West Virginia. Just talk no action and they fell over themselves for it. Typical people who vote against the own economic interests. The one per cent never does that.

    1. How about fracking , coal mine permits which Obama cancelled, Trump pushed coal exports. Trump many other things.

  5. Wow!!!A democrat with sense. Good for you Joe M. Keep up the good work and don’t let your friends in the Dem party change you,.

  6. What are you two selling? Something always has to be sold, marketed or purchased for retail. Arizona beach front property doesn’t exist and blue sky is free until some idiot wants to filter the sun.

  7. I don’t think that the States will allow
    HR 1 stand, several states have voted in new laws, and I pray that more will follow what Georgia did, on Photo IDs

  8. biden has never been right on anything the 50 yrs. he served as public servant–he did line his pockets, that he did right for himself and family.

  9. TIME TO WAKE UP AND DEMAND CONGRESS IMPEACH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! Biden is guilty of 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

    HARRIS is guilty of violating 18US Code 2381 Treason, 18 US Code 2382 Misprision of Treason, 18US Code 2383 Rebellion or Insurrection, 18 US Code 2384 Seditious Conspiracy and 18 US CODE 2385 Advocating Overthrow of Government!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  10. Biden will cause this so the dems can just steal it all – like in the past so many times . It’s just another repeat scheme to scam & rape America even more !

  11. It’s nice to see not every Jack and Jill with a “D” in front of party puts the “rat” in “Democrat”. However, I have to ask a question about “The Hill”; is it left-leaning? I’m asking because some of the articles they print seem to have liberal overtones.

  12. We all need to keep repeating on every network Presidential Election fraud !!! We all know they committed Treason ! Let’s do something about it !!!

  13. I love how the democraps put in a hugh play on a small part that has minor money alloted for. The rest goes to these democraps pocket plans and kickbacks to pay to play scheme king biden has running

  17. When something doesn’t fit their insane agenda, they just make up new words or change the meaning to suit their sick needs. Just because they call illegal immigrants “undocumented” doesn’t make them any less “illegal”. Lie, cheat, and steal, it is what Democrats do. They have no regard for what the people want.

  18. Someone please end this horrible mistake and get rid of this imposter and put him in rightful place, a looney bin. This is a false presidency which should end somehow and I don’t care how as we are the stupidest country on earth with this idiot calling Obama’s evilplans.

  19. Sen. Joe Manchin is what democrats’ use to be decades ago. They were for the working people and cared about our country but now democrats are all about control. Sen. Joe Manchin is a true American…
