    Sen. Joe Manchin is open to discussing a federal ban on military-style semiautomatic rifles — commonly labeled assault weapons — as Congress debates how to respond to a recent wave of mass shootings. Mr. Manchin, West Virginia Democrat, said all ideas had to be on the table in discussions on combating violence.

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) on Friday revived Build Back Better negotiations with Republican senators ahead of the November midterm elections. The negotiations, which stalled between Manchin and the White House in December, include increasing the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 25 percent, provisions meant to address global warming, and subsidies for the green energy sector, Axios reported.

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Wednesday reacted to the mass shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, TX, that has reportedly left 19 children dead. Scarborough blasted Republicans, who he said would argue that talking about gun safety legislation immediately after mass shootings was “too soon.” He called them “cowards” and “barbarians.” “They’re cowards. They’re such cowards,” Scarborough declared. “And, of course, they don’t want to talk about it, just like January 6. Like we saw in the focus group, they want you to forget about it. … When was the right time to talk about 9/11?”

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) on Tuesday lamented the lack of Senate support for tougher gun laws following a mass shooting in Texas hours earlier but rejected the notion of eliminating the filibuster for the purpose of passing such a bill. Manchin noted that he has three grandchildren similar in age to the victims at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, where at least 14 kids and one teacher were shot and killed.

  • Bezos: In fact, the administration tried hard to inject even more stimulus into an already over-heated, inflationary economy and only Manchin saved them from themselves

    Jeff Bezos @JeffBezos · 15 May In fact, the administration tried hard to inject even more stimulus into an already over-heated, inflationary economy and only Manchin saved them from themselves. Inflation is a regressive tax that most hurts the least affluent. Misdirection doesn’t help the country. Neoliberal 🌐🇺🇦 @ne0liberal · 15 May This is so silly. The deficit is decreasing because we’re not doing pandemic aid anymore, and federal receipts are up because of inflation. Congress, or the Biden administration, didn’t do anything to lower the deficit. twitter.com/potus/status/1…

    Actor Alec Baldwin — who is still facing fallout from the shooting death on the set of the movie Rust — is now pushing for the removal of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) from office, calling him a “traitorous Democrat.” Alec Baldwin called for Manchin’s removal in a recent tweet in which the actor claimed the senator is more dangerous that the “unhinged Republican” — presumably a reference to former President Donald Trump and his supporters.

    This week, Democrat Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona dashed the hopes of their more radical colleagues amid renewed calls to pass a federal law that would overrule state limits or prohibitions on abortion. Calls for slim Democrat majorities in the House and Senate to quickly advance a bill, the inaccurate and grossly named "Women's Health Protection Act," that would codify Roe v. Wade's concocted right to abortion were swift. Almost a little too swift, perhaps, in the wake of an unprecedented leak from the Supreme Court that showed a draft opinion by Justice Samuel...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher argued that Democrats should be the “most upset” about the theft and fraudulent attainment of COVID relief money and questioned why Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “are seen as the bad guys in their party because they looked at another multi-trillion-dollar spending bill and wondered if our government was up to the task of taking all that money and not just having it siphoned off by grifters” and spent on nonsense.

    At a time when President Biden is at 33 percent approval while Congress sits at 21 percent, there’s one politician who is seeing his numbers rise briskly: Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.). Overall, 57 percent of West Virginia voters approve of Manchin’s performance in the Mountain State. That’s a 17-point jump since Joe Biden took office in early 2021. No U.S. senator has seen a bigger increase in support than Manchin. More notably, the former governor has doubled his approval ratings among West Virginia Republicans, with a whopping 69 percent approving of his performance. For context, Biden’s approval in the state...

Manchin spokesperson Sam Runyon told The Hill via email that the meeting was “an effort to gauge bipartisan interest in a path forward that addressed our nation’s climate and energy security needs head on.” The meeting was first reported by NBC News, which said that Manchin and Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) organized the meeting.

    Several prominent business executives hope Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) will defect to the Republican party and mount a presidential campaign against President Joe Biden, according to a report on Monday. Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) previously called on Manchin to switch over to the Republican Party, telling Fox News last year, “He would be a lot more comfortable on our side.”
  • Democrat Joe Manchin says Americans deserve to know 'the truth' of who is to blame for skyrocketing prices and tears into Biden

    West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is blasting the Biden administration for responding to record-high inflation with 'half-measures and rhetorical failures' after the Labor Department revealed Tuesday that the average price of consumer goods hit a 41-year high. He said Americans deserved to know 'the truth' of what fueled a staggering 8.5 percent inflation rate in March from the year prior -- a price hike he likened to a new 'tax.' 'Let me be clear, inflation is a tax and today’s historic inflation data tells another chilling story about how these taxes on Americans are completely out of control,' 'Hard...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) publicly slammed President Joe Biden for Tuesday’s terrible inflation numbers. “It is a disservice to the American people to act as if inflation is a new phenomenon,” Manchin wrote in a press release. “The Federal Reserve and the Administration failed to act fast enough, and today’s data is a snapshot in time of the consequences being felt across the country.”

    While speaking to reporters on Thursday, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) urged the Biden administration to reconsider its reported plans to lift Title 42 and expressed his opposition to ending Title 42. Manchin added that, “If anything, we ought to be looking at permanency on Title 42,” and that doing so might push Congress to fix immigration policy. Manchin stated, “I think they should reconsider. I sent a letter. I’m against removing Title 42. If anything, we ought to be looking at permanency on Title 42, and having a good — maybe that would get us to — spur us to...

I listened to basically the hearings and it was just embarrassing.”

    Sen. Joe Manchin indicated he was open to returning to the negotiating table to revise the Build Back Better measure months after the Democrat torpedoed his party’s sweeping $2 trillion spending bill in the deadlocked Senate. Manchin, 74, of West Virginia, told climate activists and energy executives Monday at a private dinner he would support a bill narrowed down to address only climate change, prescription drug prices, deficit reduction and an updated tax code, according to Axios.

    Senator Joe Manchin was fiercely attacked by his fellow Democrats for his derailing the ambitious overhaul of the United States to better conform with the utopian society envisioned by climate change zealots. But he could be the man who resurrects President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda just in time for the midterm elections. The West Virginia lawmaker has apparently flip-flopped after he torpedoed Biden’s signature package, a $2 trillion bill that was filled with social engineering items and special interest money, pronouncing it “dead” during a conversation with reporters last month. Now Manchin is singing a different tune, telling...
