President Joe Biden may have just been thwarted by a member of his own party.
According to Fox News, “Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said Monday that he does not support President Biden’s proposed tax increases on corporations as part of a nearly $2.3 trillion spending proposal, potentially dealing a fatal blow to a key revenue raiser included in the infrastructure initiative.”
“As this bill exists today, it needs to be changed,” said Manchin. “Bottom line is, that’s what legislation is all about. This bill will not be in the same form you’ve seen introduced or seen people talking about.”
Manchin knows his support is vital.
“If I don’t vote to get on it, then it’s not going anywhere, so we’re going to have some leverage here,” said Manchin. “It’s more than just me. 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.”
