Manchin Expresses Real Concerns About Reconciliation Infrastructure Bill

What was considered a major win for Biden is quickly taking a turn for the worst.

House Democrats don’t want to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill without the reconciliation bill in hand.

And now, Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) expressed reservations regarding the massive $3.5 trillion package the Dems want to pass via reconciliation.

Going Up in Flames

I want to be excited about this, but Manchin has led us all down this road before, only to eventually cave.

For now, however, he is our beacon of hope to prevent both bills from going through.

AOC and her crew do not want to pass the bipartisan bill until they have the reconciliation bill in hand.

However, now Manchin says he has “serious concerns” about the bigger spending package, hinting that he may put up a fight on this bill.

He has, however, backed a procedural vote on reconciliation, something he previously said he would not support on infrastructure.

Manchin stated, “Early this morning, I voted ‘YES’ on a procedural vote to move forward on the budget reconciliation process because I believe it is important to discuss the fiscal policy future of this country.

“However, I have serious concerns about the grave consequences facing West Virginians and every American family if Congress decides to spend another $3.5 trillion.”

Schumer responded, “There are some in my caucus who might believe it’s too much there are some in my caucus who might believe it’s too little.

“I can tell you this: in reconciliation, one, we are going to all come together to get something done and two it will have every part of the Biden plan in a big bold robust way.”

Manchin knows he is on thin ice with his constituents here because he vowed not to allow free-for-all spending by the Democrat Party.

If he supports the package the way it sits right now, he will lose the support of virtually every moderate, which means he does not get re-elected.

I am concerned, however, that he even allowed the reconciliation procedural vote to move forward with the concerns he mentioned in his statement.

Like I said at the opening, I want to be more excited about this, but Manchin has caved before, so it would not be a surprise to see him cave again.

If Manchin does hold firm, though, it actually puts both bills in jeopardy, turning a huge Biden win into an epic loss, so we will continue to follow this story very closely.

  1. That’s all it is, Democrats want to run our country into oblivion with their stupid spending and tear our country to pieces for our children and our grandchildren to have to pay for it.

  2. Do something then. I bet you voted for it though. I can express real concern about anything but unless I possibly have the ability to affect change, theres not a darn thing I CAN DO.
    Do something.

  3. Be a man of your word just once Mr. Manchin and do not agree to this bill or any further monetary democratic wish list. We have no way to sustain another gross expenditure that is nothing more than lies to Americans. We are not stupid and we have a memory, especially when it come to elections. Many Republican office holders are on the line now for going against their constituents wishes and voting for the 1.2 trillion bill. Enough is Enough !!

  4. TOO MUCH SPENDING.
    WHY NOT WORK ON REAL AMERICANS CONCERNS LIKE A BALANCED BUDGET!
    CLOSE THE BOTDER AND FINISH THE BORDER WALL
    STOP BUYING FOSSIL FUELS FROM FOREIGN COUNTRIES AND MAKE AMERICA FUEL INDEPENDENT
