Moderate Dem Senator goes public with criticism of Biden’s infrastructure bill

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D) announced he opposes President Joe Biden’s plan to raise the corporate tax rate to 28 percent as part of his latest infrastructure bill.

“As the bill exists today, it needs to be changed,” Manchin said. “It’s more than just me.”

Manchin added, “There’s six or seven other Democrats who feel very strongly about this. We have to be competitive, and we’re not going to throw caution to the wind.”

The senator noted the bill would not succeed without his support. The 50-50 deadlocked Senate that includes a vice-presidential tiebreaker requires all 50 Democrats in support to advance legislation.

Several Democrat House members wrote a letter on Apr. 1 to Secretary of State Janet Yellen to note they would not support the infrastructure bill without removing caps on state and local tax deductions.

“Millions of Americans, already reeling from the economic consequences of the pandemic, will now be hit by a significant increase in federal taxes compared to what they faced before the deduction cap was introduced,” the letter noted.

“As our economy recovers from this public health and economic crisis, it is critical that we provide our constituents and state and local governments with the relief that they desperately need,” the House members added.

Biden announced his $2 trillion infrastructure plan on Wednesday in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The plan’s funding will comes from raising the corporate tax rate lowered by former President Donald Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in 2017.

The current infrastructure bill will unlikely proceed. However, the legislation will undergo modifications and continue, similar to Biden’s previous $1.9 trillion COVID-19 stimulus bill.

Most of the money will be used for political pay offs, just as it was under the big O. Very little of the money will do any actual good for the country. Increasing any taxes is the worst possible thing that can be done for the economy when it is trying to recover from the huge pandemic that shut most everything down for a time.

The current Hide and Seek leadership being offered by Biden and Harris has been nothing short of Devastating at Best. They took over a system that was working and working well for this nation. In less than 30 days they stopped it in its tracks and then crushed It. The worse part about what they did is first they took credit for the COVID advancements that their predecessor had achieved, then proceeded to blame him for what they screwed up. We have an incoherent President who can neither converse with anyone without having major issues in concentration and speech. We have a Vice President who breaks out with hysterical laughter when confronted with a question which she does have an answer for or simply does not have an ok to speak with any authority concerning the issue. We have a Democrat controlled Congress being lead around by Hate mongers and placing blame on people who have been out of office for over two months. Who just can not leave Donald J Trump, alone. It appears that we under the current leadership being offer this country may be headed for another WW crisis.

Charles, I agree with you on your comment. I think anytime our Vice President answers a question and laughs I believe that is her way of trying to hide the fact that she is lying. She lies all the time one can not believe anything that come out of her mouth. What has she done since being VP? Nothing but worry about why her quarters are finished yet and is tired of living out of a suit case. Poor baby! She has reached the level of incompetence. She should have never been in office. She was a plan from the beginning.
