Politics: McConnell: I’m a Manchin fan

Manchin, Sinema are increasingly receiving campaign contributions from GOP donors: NYT

  Manchin, Sinema are increasingly receiving campaign contributions from GOP donors: NYT The two lawmakers have attended fundraisers hosted by conservative-leaning donors who are virtually absent from most Democratic political circles. As Manchin led the charge in pruning Biden's roughly $3.5 trillion infrastructure reconciliation framework down to its current price tag closer to $2 trillion this summer, he also reportedly attended a fundraiser at a $18 million mansion in Dallas which brought out GOP donors who were effusive in his efforts, according to The Times.

I don't know McConnell 's definition of a weeb game but something that bothers me every time someone says that about FF14, one of the only things they say is either cat girls or Lalas and like nothing else. Some of the playerbase may do some weird stuff but the game doesn't treat them any differently. I ' m somewhat new to the Asmonverse, but after watching McConnell play D&D with Rich and Asmon I ' m glad he's not playing FF. He is one of the most defensive, petty, killjoy dudes I have ever listened to.

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has grown increasingly fond of the Senate’s most centrist Democrat, West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, who is about the only person capable of blocking passage of President Joe Biden’s multitrillion-dollar social welfare and green energy legislation, known as "Build Back Better."

“I admire Sen. Manchin,” McConnell said. “He's in a really challenging position in a party that is dominated by East Coast elitism views of what America ought to look like. I pull for him every day, I pray for him every night.”

McConnell, who represents neighboring Kentucky, met privately with Manchin on Tuesday to discuss the Senate agenda, particularly energy policy, which plays a pivotal part in the Build Back Better bill.

  Juan Williams: Biden and Manchin are 2021's most influential politicians OPINION: The president and the West Virginia senator have leveraged their power, even while taking some arrows from their own side.So, how is Joe Biden the winner of my 2021 Politician of the Year?

McConnell is, in my opinion, one of the most successful and accomplished trolls on the internet. Hats off to him, honestly. Edit: I ' m a big fan of him because of this. Also, I think people find more amusing for McConnell to go full in denial regarding FFXIV, specially when his main reason for refusing is just because of the lack of a Retribution Paladin. On a last note, people need to realize that constantly insisting on others to play their game is can be creepy and discourage from play it.

Manchin is against anti-fossil fuel provisions in the legislation, including a methane fee opposed by the natural gas industry.

Manchin told reporters following the 40-minute meeting that the two lawmakers “talked a lot about the area we represent, Kentucky and West Virginia, on some issues we all agree on. Energy is one of them.”

Republicans unanimously oppose Build Back Better and are hoping Manchin or fellow centrist Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona will block the bill.

The plan would create a broad array of government programs and subsidies, none of them accompanied by a work requirement. Tax hikes would help pay for the legislation, but some of it would add to the deficit.

Republicans say the bill is economically reckless and would discourage work and raise energy prices while also driving up already-high inflation. It would cost $5 trillion rather than the hundreds of billions it would cost according to the official score, Republicans said.

It's not just Manchin: Dems' $2T bill faces Senate gauntlet

  It's not just Manchin: Dems' $2T bill faces Senate gauntlet WASHINGTON (AP) — It took half a year but Democrats have driven President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion package of social and climate initiatives through the House. It gets no easier in the Senate, where painful Republican amendments, restrictive rules and Joe Manchin lurk. Facing unbroken GOP opposition, Democrats finally reached agreement among themselves and eased the compromise through the House on Nov. 19. One Democrat voted no in a chamber they control by just three votes. They're negotiating further changes for a final version they hope will win approval by Christmas in the 50-50 Senate, where they'll need every Democratic vote.

McConnell has been an enemy of our democratic institutions in this country for so long. Kentucky needs to kick him to the curb once and for all. ( I ' m a bot). The Democrat who nearly flipped a conservative House district in Kentucky in 2018, raised nearly million in the past three months for her bid to unseat Senate Majority Leader, her campaign said. McGrath pulled in .7 million in the third fundraising quarter, the first since announcing her Senate campaign in July.

I ' m really eager for the point where, as a society, we finally look past partisan lines and start treating unforgivable abdications of duties and oaths like this as the crimes they are. But as it has been for years now, Republicans refuse to do anything, and whenever the Democrats pass a bill of any kind, McConnell says it is partisan nonsense and the Senate never votes on it. Their voters don't have enough of a civics education to even realize how fucking awful they've been, they just love to see Republicans calling Democrats partisan.

Senate Democrats plan to pass the measure using a budgetary tactic that averts the GOP filibuster. To do so, they'll need all 50 Democrats, plus Vice President Kamala Harris to break the tie.

Manchin has not yet committed to voting for the legislation. He's worried it will drive up inflation, raise energy costs, and discourage work.

Manchin denied reports earlier this year that he's contemplating a party switch but has not hesitated to huddle with McConnell and other Republicans on occasion.

McConnell said he and Manchin had “a great discussion" on Tuesday and represent similar states.

“I enjoy Joe's company,” McConnell said. “And we both view part of our responsibility to look after what most people refer to as flyover country. And there's no question that today's Democratic Party in Washington is oriented toward the high population, coastal areas of the country. “

  NDAA, debt ceiling, government funding: Here's what's left for Congress to address in 2021 Both chambers of Congress will be working to try to avoid a government shut and default, as well approve a must-pass national security package.Both chambers of Congress will be working in overdrive to try to avoid a government shut and default, both of which would be catastrophic for the economy, which has already been grappling with the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mitch McConnell is a Trump sycophant continuing to push his regressive anti-women, anti-choice, anti-LGBT policies and refusing to lift a finger to investigate the deadly mob that Trump pushed to storm the Capitol to try to overturn the election. (The fact that McConnell directly blamed Trump for instigating the riot in January, but is now kissing up to Trump on his campaign website, is mind bogglingly pathetic. Girl there are republicans and then there's Mitch McConnell -- who is actively trying to take away the rights of both women and minorities ( I ' m sure one of these applies to you as well).


Manchin also met with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, to discuss his concerns about the energy provision in the bill. Schumer said he wants to pass the bill by the end of the year and predicted that every Democrat, including Manchin, will vote for it.

“We've had a good meeting with Sen. Manchin today,” Schumer said. “We mainly talked about climate issues, and we're going to get this bill done with 50 Democrats before Christmas. That's our goal.”
