   Manchin Comes Out against Biden Infrastructure Bill
By Zachary Evans

April 5, 2021 12:20 PM


Senator Joe Manchin (D., W.Va.) said he would oppose raising the corporate tax rate to 28 percent, a key component of the Biden administration’s infrastructure bill, in a radio interview with West Virginia’s Metro News.

“As the bill exists today, it needs to be changed,” Manchin told host Hoppy Kercheval. The senator added that he could support raising the corporate tax rate to 25 percent, but not to 28 percent as envisioned in the bill, because it would hurt the country’s market competitiveness.

“It’s more than just me, Hoppy,” Manchin said. “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.”

Manchin emphasized that the bill would not move forward without his support. With 50 Senate seats and the vice presidency, Democrats need the support of all their senators in order to pass legislation.

Manchin sides once with the Democommies, he is done in West Virginia.  Of course, he might be planning just to leave versus lose his next election.

Folks in WV will not tolerate any of this Dem nonsense as reflected in their next election.

He's "worried about market competitiveness", but wants to raise taxes on the people, anyway.

If that liar was actually concerned about improving the competitiveness of US industry, he'd insist on lowering corporate taxation to nothing at all, to maximize US competitiveness and to attract piles of foreign capital.
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.
