Democrat Senator Joe Manchin just sunk another part of Joe Biden’s massive spending bill.
Manchin told Dem leadership he would not support any provisions on energy and climate or tax increases in the bill.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and his staff told Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D, N.Y., unequivocally Thursday that he is only willing to support a reconciliation bill in August that includes a provision to lower prescription drug prices and a two-year extension of subsidies for the Affordable Care Act, according to a Democrat briefed on the conversations.
Manchin was explicit that he won’t support a bill before the midterms with any provisions on energy and climate or closing tax loopholes exploited by the wealthy and biggest corporations, despite his support for those specific things during months of negotiations.
Democrats were hoping passing this legislation would help them politically for the midterms.
