Paid family leave falls out of Biden’s bill as tempers rise​



Top Democrats signaled a deal is within reach on President Joe Biden’s big domestic bill, but momentum fizzled and tempers flared as a paid family leave proposal fell out and a billionaires’ tax appeared scrapped, mostly to satisfy a pivotal member of the 50-50 Senate.

Seriously, fuck joe manchin

Pretty much everything that would help Americans has been axed. The only things they're keeping are projects they can make money on.

I figured that would happen the moment they let the parliamentarian kill the $15 minimum wage.

I knew right then the fix was in. It was all hot air all along.

So let's update this thread. First off, we have this:


Sen. Joe Manchin, a conservative Democrat, said Sunday he won’t support the Biden administration’s “Build Back Better” plan.​
Manchin’s decision will likely kill the $1.75 trillion social spending and climate policy bill as it is now. Democrats need Manchin’s vote in the 50-50 Senate, plus a tie-breaker from Vice President Kamala Harris.​
“If I can’t go home and explain it to the people West Virginia, I can’t vote for it. And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there,” Manchin said on “Fox News Sunday,” saying he was concerned with adding to the national debt.​
Yeah. Sure. Right. He sure as hell wasn't concerned with the debt one damn bit when he gave the rich a 2 trillion dollar tax cut that is the reason we've had to raise the debt ceiling twice already.

But then there's this - and I had never heard this before:



Drugmaker Mylan has come under fire this week for price increases upward of 500% since 2009 to epinephrine autoinjector EpiPen.​
As it turns out, this isn't CEO Heather Bresch's first brush with controversy. In 2008, West Virginia University stripped her of an MBA that she claimed she earned.​
The situation began when the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette made a routine call to verify Bresch's credentials as the new head of Mylan. Accusations of political cronyism and the resignation of three WVU faculty members followed.​
In 2007, the press release announcing Bresch's ascension to CEO noted that she "earned an MBA and an undergraduate degree in international studies and political science from West Virginia University."​
By December, however, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that West Virginia University awarded Bresch the MBA after only rewriting documents that originally showed she completed approximately half the credits necessary for the degree.​

Absolutely corrupt to the core.
