Your Calls to Manchin *Might* Have Killed Radical $3.5 Trillion Reconciliation Bill

Don't let up the pressure yet, but your calls and messages to Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) have helped the Senator to back off on supporting the most radical bill that incorporates the dream wish list of extremist left wing law that would transform America towards a socialist state. Senator Manchin: 202-224-3954


Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said Democrats should hit "pause" on President Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending package, firing a significant warning shot at his party’s top legislative priority.

Manchin, during remarks this week at a West Virginia Chamber of Commerce event pointed to concerns about “runaway inflation,” the delta variant of the coronavirus and a botched withdrawal in Afghanistan to float slowing down what is the centerpiece of Biden's economic agenda.

"If the country is facing what we're facing now. ... I would ask my colleagues and all of the Senate to hit the pause button on the $3.5 [trillion]," Manchin said at the event on Wednesday. "Let’s sit back. Let’s see what happens. We have so much on our plate. We really have an awful lot. I think that would be the prudent, wise thing to do."

"I know they're going to go nuts right now ... because what I said is going to all my caucus in Washington," Manchin added, referring to his Democratic colleagues. "But I'm thinking of it from the standpoint of where we are as a nation today."

Manchin's remarks come as Democrats are negotiating and drafting the $3.5 trillion bill, which is expected to include some of the party's biggest priorities including expanding Medicare, combating climate change and immigration reform. And if he sticks by his push for a go-slow approach it could mark a significant stumbling block to Democratic leadership's timeline for advancing the Democratic-only bill.
