sounds good to me

Government only has three pillars upon which it stands

1. Abortion on demand

2. Destruction of borders

3. Endless deficit spending

Once you get that down, what both parties do actually makes sense.

Pretty interesting. It's tough to say whether Manchin is angling for the best middle ground he can get now, or whether he's serious. Everything in politics is such a game.

The "shit or get off the pot" moment is approaching, so the Dems need to tell him to make up his mind and stick to it.

Manchin is a dog POS, doing the bidding of his corporate pay masters. Just like a typical republican scumbag.

The "plan" zog attributes to Sleepy Joe can be reduced by $100,000,000,000 if he goes to Afghanistan and gets our stuff back. :dunno:
LOL!! That number gets bigger every time a republican tells that lie.

I still think it's theater. I know a lotta folks don't like pelosi but betting against her almost never works out.

Quite the opposite. He appears to be the only Democrat with a lick of sense. Granted, it isn’t much. He will eventually cave in(or get paid) to too much spending but at least he may delay the total disaster of the full bill.

Yeah, delay the infrastructure bill, until republicans can give even more $$$ in corporate tax cuts.
Everyone knows what infrastructure really needs is a tax cut.

They can't be pure of heart and followers of Jesus like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi

Yeah, possible. If so, he's pretty good at it, because I'm seeing a lot of doubt from the Democrats.

He's putting Biden's administration -- already shaky as hell -- at real risk here.

Why would a Democrat protect America instead of working with the globalist to destroy it?

Manchin must be some kinda white supremacist.

Do you remember when we gave Obama all that money to upgrade our infrastructure and create all those shovel ready jobs?
It was awesome!

'All that $$$?
Obama made the mistake of trusting republicans, the same thing Biden is doing.
Obama was expecting to sin a $837 billion package, until republicans demanded cuts to $730 billion, then not one republican voted for it.
Of course, they wanted a $51 billion tax cut for corporations.

It wasn't nearly enough, and they started whining 'The slowest economic recovery in history'.
Well, if you have a 750-mile trip on a tank of fuel that cost $225 to fill, then some whiny brat, insist you can fill the tank with $150, you aren't going to get where you need to go.

Remember when we gave the orange retard $1.5 trillion for tax cuts?
That was awesome........................for corporations.

U.S. corporations spent a record amount buying back their own shares last year, using 2017′s tax-cut windfall to reward shareholders rather than to invest or expand their businesses.
Companies in the S&P 500 spent $806 billion on stock buybacks in 2018, blowing away the previous record of nearly $590 billion set in 2007.
The practice has come under scrutiny by members of Congress, who criticized companies for using their extra tax benefits to boost the value of their own shares instead of investing in outside growth or their workers.

Actually it was quite awesome for the entire economy and lower-wage workers in particular. They didn't tell you that?
No, it wasn't, didn't do squat for anyone but rich people.
The Trumpaciles tried to spin his disaster, but the orange grifter, let the truth slip out at his club.

December 24, 2017
President Trump kicked off his holiday weekend at Mar-A-Lago Friday night at a dinner where he told friends, "You all just got a lot richer," referencing the sweeping tax overhaul he signed into law hours earlier.

The president has spent many weekends of his presidency so far at the "Winter White House," where initiation fees cost $200,000, annual dues cost $14,000, and some of the most affluent members of society have the opportunity to interact with the president in a setting while many Americans cannot.

I'm sure Biden won't mind too much, will give them more time to "revise" it and by that I mean figure out other stuff to try and bury in it.

In the end it won't matter. Maybe 1/3 of it will actually be used for it's purposes, the rest will get siphoned off and go into people's pockets.
