Joe Manchin Just Crushed Two Democrat Power Grabs... for Now

Biden could pursue a massive infrastructure package with only Democratic votes if bipartisan negotiations ultimately collapse, according to local media.

Manchin penned in his op/ed on Sunday: '[V] oting and election reform that is done in a partisan manner will all but ensure partisan divisions continue to deepen'.

"I believe there's a lot more of my Republican colleagues and friends that feel the same way".

The bill, also known as S1, is the largest overhaul of USA election law in at least a generation and covers many aspects of the voting process, including requiring states to automatically register eligible voters and offer same-day voter registration. And, two, if he does bring it to the floor, will you vote against that bill?

WALLACE: So just to put a - a - a button on this, you will vote against that bill if it gets to the Senate floor?

Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) will oppose the Democratic Party's legislation that would federalize elections, the For the People Act, citing the bill's overtly partisan nature.

Schumer downplayed Manchin's opposition, telling reporters Democrats have held "strong and intense discussions" about the bill in their weekly closed-door lunches.

Biden also spoke Friday to Peter DeFazio, chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, which plans to begin debate on Biden's infrastructure proposal next week. You're the only Democrat in the Senate who is not supporting S-1, the so-called For the People Act.

Biden offered to drop plans to hike corporate tax rates as high as 28%, and instead set a minimum tax rate that companies should pay instead at 15%, sources said.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the president is interested in looping in centrist Democrats who also favor a bipartisan accord on fixing the nation's crumbling roads, bridges, and waterways. You say it's too broad and too partisan.

But it's a long way off, and time is running out. "But we will not wait for months and months to pass meaningful legislation that delivers real results for the American people".

Independent Senator Angus King of of ME, who caucuses with Democrats, also told CNN on Sunday that he is "reluctant" to support ending the filibuster.
