  1. “State rights!” Well, where is state responsibility and accountability? Why should we bail out failed red welfare states? (See US News state ranking, Wallethub most federally dependent states, Wikipedia GDP per capita)

    1. @shade38211 you funny shade! Projecting on me that you are a welfare recpient?? The biggest welfare recipients are your corporate masters

    2. @Robyn Robison Red states are infested with blue cities. That’s where the welfare goes, with Kentucky being the *ONLY* exception.

    3. @David L Alexander The biggest problem in Kentucky is the public pensions paid to LAZY government workers.

    4. @Super Scary Russian Bot The water where David lives is heavily fluoridated….he can’t help how stupid he is….he’s been poisoned his entire life.

      I’m not guessing….I know him.

    5. MCDONNELL’S KENTUCKY HAS BEEN SUCKING DOWN TAX MONEY FROM NEW YORK SINCE FOREVER. HE IS THE ONE TO “COLOR-CODE THE NEEDS OF PEOPLE AS RED (YAAY, BLUE ( BOO), WHILE HIS WELFARE DEPENDENT STATE IS HAMSTRUNG INTO HELPLESSNESS. (OXYCONTIN, CRYSTAL METH USERS)

  2. Remember back when Republicans had control and they wanted to do bi-partisan bills with Democrats? No, me neither.

    1. @Puggles McWardog Um not sure how that could have happened Since the House and Senate were under Republican leadership! Oh, oh I get it you were just joking, lol.

    2. @Brian Whiting NOPE NOPE & THAT’S WHY “WE THE PEOPLE” CAN’T HAVE ROADS WITHOUT POTHOLES BECAUSE THE TOP 1% NEED NEW PLANES & SPACE SHIPS TO INVENT!!
      I SAW A BUSINESS INSIDER REPORT THAT SAID THAT DURING THE PANDEMIC & EVERYBODY WUZ ON LOCK-DOWN THE TOP 1% ACTUALLY MADE $99 BILLION WHILE MOST AMERICANS COULDN’T EVEN GO TO WORK FOR A MEASLY $7.25/HOUR & HAD TO SCRAP FROM HERE & THERE AT SOUP KITCHENS & FOOD BANKS FOR A MEAL!!

    3. @Brian Whiting, yes both parties will need to cooperate in order for us to have a functional federal government. I personally don’t see either party taking steps in that direction. The first step would be to admit your party’s contributions to the division. I can do that, but not the Republican Leadership.

      Therefore, I think our best option is to delegate domestic power to the states to allow both parties to function independently without stepping on each other’s rights to govern until we can get adults in DC again.

  3. Talk is cheap the people want action not only for the companies the people need also. This guy is all for only corporations not the people. He’s representing more Republican than Democrats. Most west Virginia that I know are against the Capitol attack. So time to increase corporations taxes and lower the rest.

    1. If only the biggest obstacle to American progress, McConnell, were to retire or die, I believe there can be bi-partisanship. Or maybe I’m just a dreamer.

    2. WRONG , you are a joke to him because u believe hes actually trying! he’s playing people! WAKE UP!

  4. Lol how can anyone believe he’s talking in good faith. He’s lying through his teeth. Don’t believe a word he says

  5. The republicans know everything about making debts. Investing in economics could lower the debts because it generates jobs that’s make people richer pay more taxes and spend more. You earn the investments back. Not only lower taxes as the republicans do.

    1. He does not represent his party.He is selfish and he is behaving that way, because the Democrat party has 50 senators.If the Democrat party would have have 51 senators he could have not behave that way and playing politics to be consider so important.He knows that Trump is very with his behaviour , and even likes. Him,shame on him.But Biden needs to put pression on him,Because he is against Biden agenda ,makes everything difficult to susscces

  6. Manchin is so transparently and casually lying straight into the camera, a skill he has picked up from Trump and McConnell, his two close buddies.

    1. Really? Manchin worked very hard to get a good, passable, bi-partisan bill, like a good Congressman should do. It is the tyrants on the left, who are acting like brats, and insisting on no compromise, which will tank any chance at an infrastructure bill.

  7. Manchin seems to forget that the rescue plan WAS NOT bipartisan. Not one Republican in both the Senate and the House voted for it

  8. I am at the point where I can’t abide this man. He’s such a sanctimonious schmarm. He’s destroying any hope we have of getting what this nation needs–and he’s so damned determined to scold the liberal side while ignoring that the conservative side REFUSES to work with us.

    He’s making damned good and sure our democracy is destroyed.

  9. Either this guy Manchin is naive or stupid or maybe very much corrupt. He is still talking about bipartisanship when McConnell bury that a long time back.

  10. He calls himself a centrist.
    Fair enough. That’s where most of the policy’s he supports are.
    He calls himself pragmatic.
    No. He believes it’s essential to work with a party of nut-jobs.

  11. Why can’t Manchin just admit that he loves being a US Senator & just doesn’t want to lose his seat in a very red state?

    Obviously he doesn’t care if it gets passed or not.

    1. @Joey S. no what im saying is that if Democrats had the right to use the filibuster to block anything president Trump tried to do then Republicans too should have all the right to use it to block everything Biden tries to do.

    2. @best proto – besides the fact that yur full of it! – the repugs represent a smaller MINORITY of the american people, and yet they use their veto power constantly, to block substantial Bills that we ALL NEED! and Want! They use it for Minority Rule! The ONLY things the repugs are really only and ever interested in approving – are 1) more white/male supremacist Supreme Court Justices and 2) more tax cuts for the people who are lining their own pockets – aka – the RICH!!!!

    3. @marmac I agree with you and honestly I’m preach the point where I don’t think the Senate needs to exist. Really who needs a cooling saucer for coffee b**** I’m not a cat I drink my coffee from a cup and I drink it hot because im an adult lol

  12. Bipartisanship when the democrat is in the White House, sheer obstruction when GOP is in the White House.

  13. Manchin does what his donors, the Kochs and others, tell him to do. Kochs don’t want too big an infrastructure deal and they don’t want human infrastructure.

  14. Manchin talks about the american dream,is that the dream where the poor stay poor after he blocked them getting fifteen dollars an hour,sounds more like the american nightmare.

  15. I would like to know who is paying Manchin to give Republicans the upper hand in holding everything up? Either he isn’t a Democrat or he is being PAID OFF!!!

  16. McConnell has told us no Republican votes. Republicans are running out the clock like they did with Obama.
