  1. Nothing has changed in this deal overall , It just took his 8th grade education this long to understand what was in it.

  2. Manchin claimed in the near-past ….that having represented W.Va. for 40 years …..he KNOWS the people ……..however…..considering that W.Va. is among the most poverty-stricken states , ranking very poorly in levels of education , median household income , jobs , etc ……….he obviously needs to do a MUCH BETTER job .

  3. He was either extorted or was virtue signaling the economic spectrum to try and recover markets.
    Nobody switches team loyalty in the middle of a Super Bowl !

    1. I doubt Manchin cares about appearing virtuous and he’s got too much money to be pushed around. He’s hasn’t changed sides, he’s merely gotten in the game. He’s always been about Joe Manchin. But I don’t care why he did it. I’m just glad he did.

    2. How to start a conspiracy: Invent a casus belli, fabricate allegations, portray it all as fact.

  4. Why do the people of one of the poorest states keep electing the like of Manchin? Aren’t they tired of waiting for him to do something positive for them?

    1. @Communication Failure7600 Sure, if you say so it must be true. You have no credibility and your comments proves it.

    2. @Cynthia Gonzalez lol. Care to debate something? Or are unprovable attacks all you have.

    3. @Cynthia Gonzalez ok so it’s the latter. Too afraid to debate. Just out of curiosity, what have I said that is “misinformation.” You must have an example, otherwise you’re just pushing misinformation.

  5. I won’t believe it’s happening until I see it happens……manchin is known for killing dreams

    1. @Mark Bray We do have more and more to give Ukraine, and I give more from my own pocket as well. I also suggest we slap an additional %2 corporate tax for Ukraine from the likes of oil and gun damn companies!

    2. @Mr Brandon Banks we spend more on the military than the next ten countries combined, and, for the last ten years, the Congress has given the military more annually than they have even asked for. I can think of a few good places to put even the excess money that the military didn’t ask for.

    3. @A G The US does not have more and more money to give to anybody. We OWE and are OWNED. It is good to give from your pockets. Everyone should give real money of their own free will, or not. No person or corporation, which is a person, should be forced to give, at least NOT in America.

  6. I am still skeptical about Manchin’s commitment for voting for this bill. So, I will take this news with a grain of salt. On the other hand l, we still don’t know how the other drama queen Sinema whether she will vote for this negotiated bill.

    1. My thoughts exactly. If her track record is any indication, she’s already got a line of special interest donors at her door…. And an auctioneer on speed dial.

  7. It is a sad state of affairs that 2 people can hold up things getting done by the Democrat party and how much power that Manchin has considering that his state is quite insignificant in the scheme of things

  8. I’m sick of Manchin, but thrilled to hear about this hugely impactful legislation. Progress is progressive.

    1. @kma we were talking about the stock market and now something else? So you admit it is down from a year ago?

    2. @Daniel Sazer, PhD My ancestors left Europe 300 years ago to build a something greater than Europe could ever be and we have been outperforming Europe ever since… If you prefer Europe to the USA, you are always free to leave.🇺🇸

    1. A lot of the inflation is also because of supply reductions. They were caused by the continual and unnecessary lockdowns. Smart states like Texas and Florida ended their lockdown and mandates early, knowing they would otherwise crash the economy land cause mass inflation because of supply shortages in industries like food production, oil and gas, and housing. Democrats fought for longer and longer lockdowns and further govt payouts, obviously going to cause ever more increasing inflation. In addition policy wise they restricted further the production of oil and gas, making the USA dependent on foreign oil, after Trump policies had made the USA energy independent.
      This is further expanded with China policy and China production of American goods and technology. Democrats favorable China policies and investments keep USA production overseas and when supply chain shocks happen supply is further decreased causing increased inflation. Let’s also remember when you allow further millions of illegals into the USA and millions pour over the border illegally they also need to eat and buy fuel, increasing demand for these goods and pricing will increase. All of these issues are because of bad govt and bad Govts policy. But at least their are no mean tweets.

  9. “The economy is not shrinking!”~Biden on Monday
    “This is no surprise that the economy is shrinking “~Biden today

  10. This whole situation is a joke. The fact that one person is able to block legislation the majority of people want and also the fact we are devoting whole segments to Manchin regarding him being convinced and him agreeing to something. It’s incredible.

  11. When we realize that politicians and their advisors and big business will be the only ones that profit from this bill. All citizens should band together and drag these POS out of office and send them away.

  12. BTW, the “carried interest loophole” is what makes buying and dismantling (firing people and destroying pensions) companies profitable; it’s actually largely responsible for Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital being a going concern.

  13. As the economy crisis keep rising, one needs to have different streams of income, a well detailed diversified investment portfolio in the financial markets is needed to survive, as well as secure a profitable investment future!

    1. I had 2.7 btc. I trusted his words and took his advice. I have made over 9.5 btc using his service.
