Manchin's $1.8 trillion spending offer is reportedly no longer on the table

Source: CNBC

U.S. Senator Joe Manchinís $1.8 trillion spending offer he proposed to the White House in late 2021 appears to be no longer on the table following a breakdown between the Democratic lawmaker from West Virginia and the White House, the Washington Post reported on Saturday.

Manchin told reporters this week that he is no longer involved in discussions with the White House and has signaled privately that he is not interested in approving any legislation like President Joe Bidenís Build Back Better Package, the newspaper said, citing three people with knowledge of the matter.

Manchinís office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The legislation is one of Bidenís signature domestic priorities. Manchinís vote is critical in the evenly divided Senate. His opposition torpedoed Build Back Better in December, drawing ire from Democratic progressives and sending the political party scrambling to find a way to resurrect the package.

Should we have just taken his offer a couple of weeks ago? Or was it right to pass?

15. It is rather clear that he is not going to support any economic package put forward by President

Biden. He just wants to see how much he can have real Democrats kissing his ass. As my grandmother used to say "he's smelling himself". Screw him.

Totally my own opinion.

Years ago, someone made a cartoon of Joe Lieberman screwing a donkey.

I think it's time to photoshop Manchin's head onto that image.

20. Of course it isn't - get voting rights done, then make Manchin vote on BBB

After filibuster reform/voting rights is dealt with, Schumer should bring BBB to the floor, unaltered, and give Manchin a chance to go on the record as the one who destroyed Bidenís agenda, and along with it, the Child Tax Credit that 93% of WV parents qualify for, as well as the Black Lung Fund for WVís miners.

Let Manchin own that vote, for it will be the vote that ends his Senate career.

22. 100% Agreed..

Have town halls
have all the financial information that will affect their bottom line.. that's what ppl vote with for the most part, their wallet.
Keep it simple and real.

Have another town hall and then

another one.

televise the town halls, too.

24. it was right to pass

He had no intent of making that deal now or then. Had Democrats taken his offer, he would have come out shortly later to say they were misquoting him and he couldnt work with such dishonest folks.

27. I would love to eavesdrop and find out who own him.

Perhaps put a wire on his phones and find out who really controls him!

Maybe he has a nightly phone call with the turtle.

He won't back any legislation that will upset his donors in the dirty energy industry.
