Joe Manchin Opposes Biden’s Infrastructure Plan, Says ‘6 or 7 Other Democrats’ Feel the Same
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) came out in opposition of President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure proposal, citing the bill’s raising of the corporate tax rate to 28 percent.

Manchin, who holds a crucial swing vote in the Democrats’ slim Senate majority, revealed his position during a Monday interview with Metro News host Hoppy Kercheval.

“As the bill exists today, it needs to be changed,” Manchin stated.

“It’s more than just me, Hoppy,” the lawmaker added. “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 said he could vote in favor of hiking the corporate tax rate to 25 percent, not 28 percent, arguing raising the rate any further would harm the U.S. economy.

“If I don’t vote to get on it, it’s not going anywhere,” Manchin later warned in the interview.

Around $639 billion would be spent on traditional infrastructure, including $115 billion to revamp highways and roads, while just $25 billion would go toward fixing up airports. The bill sets aside $85 billion to modernize existing transit systems and $111 billion to replace lead pipes and service lines. Another $100 billion would be spent on building high-speed broadband systems and $100 billion for electric transmission infrastructure. Climate change projects, including development for electric vehicles and charging stations, would also receive billions in funding. The plan would see another $400 billion in spending on health care and $213 billion on affordable housing, along with research training, and development programs.
