Instead of trying to save a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant, Biden officials appear to be tiptoeing around Manchin—whose own silence, critics believe, can be traced to his daughter’s $30.8 million role in the events leading up to its closure.

manchin'>Joe Manchin says he cares about well-paying West Virginia jobs. But with one of America’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturing plants scheduled to close its doors and eliminate its jobs, union workers say the senator is ghosting them.

Union officials believe Sen. Manchin’s silence can be traced to his daughter Heather Bresch, the company’s former CEO, who netted $30.8 million from its sale last year. 🔗:

Pelosi was right to expel Jordan and Banks; Dems would be right to fold infrastructure into reconciliation, but what was the point of everything that came before? Maybe it was inevitable in a party with Sinema and Manchin, but leaders like Pelosi and Biden indulged it all along.

Union officials say their requests for a meeting have gone unanswered since March, but, in a statement to V.F., Sen. Manchin said he has “engaged in conversations” with the parties involved “to find a solution that protects every single job.”

Joe Manchin And Republican Friend Sign Letter Supporting The Terrible Hyde Amendment — by @RobynElyse 

Given President Biden’s goal for pharmaceutical self-sufficiency, it seems possible the plant could be deemed critical infrastructure. But Biden officials appear to be tiptoeing around Manchin, who plays an outsize role in the Democrats' majority.

Joe Manchin’s pledge to stand by the filibuster rule dooms much of the vaguely progressive agenda with which the Democrats squeaked to victory last year, leaving them with little to show voters in 2022 or 2024. @andrewmcockburn 

5/ similar to Manchin’s is just over-clever nonsense. Perhaps most importantly it just doesn’t make much sense for Biden to be publicly pressing any position on the filibuster as long as it’s not under his control. This is in the hands of Manchin and Sinema. The President …

'The political advocacy group backed by billionaire Charles Koch has been pressuring Sen. Joe Manchin to oppose key parts of the Democratic agenda, including filibuster reform and voting rights legislation. That lobbying effort appears to be paying off."

manchin'>Joe Manchin says ending the filibuster will "destroy our government." Meanwhile, McConnell just used the filibuster to kill an independent investigation into an attempted overthrow of the U.S. government.

How about we stop asking Krysten Sinema and Joe Manchin if they support the filibuster and start asking them why they’re comfortable doing nothing while the GOP introduces 253 bills across the country eviscerating the right to vote?

The Senate Dems who voted against an effort to advance a federal minimum wage hike to $15 per hour: Manchin, King, Sinema, Carper, Coons, Tester, Hassan, Shaheen.

Can’t say I mind the fact that the great people of West Virginia are furious at their puppet Democrat Senator, manchin'>Joe Manchin. They will never forget his phony vote on the Impeachment Hoax. All he had to do is read the Transcripts, sadly, which he wouldn’t understand anyway.....

....always continue. Every Republican Senator except Romney, many highly religious people, all very smart, voted against the Impeachment Hoax. @SenCapito  was all in (a great person). I was told by many that Manchin was just a puppet for Schumer & Pelosi. That’s all he is!

Unlike manchin'>Senator Manchin, Big Jim Justice was very loyal to your favorite President during Pelosi’s Impeachment Scam. Big Jim is doing a tremendous job for West Virginia. Vote for Big Jim! #MAGA 

...But, just like the people of West Virginia will no longer look at weak & pathetic manchin'>Joe Manchin the same (I got the Pension Bill approved, Manchin couldn’t do it), the wonderful people of Utah will never look at “grandstander” Mitt Romney with anything but contempt & disgust!

I was very surprised & disappointed that Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia voted against me on the Democrat’s totally partisan Impeachment Hoax. No President has done more for the great people of West Virginia than me (Pensions), and that will....
