Is it legal for Congress to #default on the US #NationalDebt? It depends on who you ask. There are a ton of good legal arguments for and against, so perhaps it comes down to what the (degraded, corrupt, illegitimate, partisan) #SupremeCourt says?…

In those terms, it seems like the game is over. #Biden should just surrender, hand the most extreme wing of the (degraded, corrupt, illegitimate, authoritarian) #GOP everything, even if doing so will push Biden's approval rating lower, dangerously close to the next election.

1. La loi sur la réduction de l'inflation de #BidenWorstPresidentInHistory , loi démente et inflationniste que le Congrès et le Sénat américain viennent de passer, vous est "secrètement" présentée par Bill Gates.
La "loi sur la réduction de l'inflation" des démocrates - qui, selon le bureau du budget du Congrès (BOC), augmentera les impôts de la classe moyenne à hauteur de 20 milliards de dollars - sans parler du fait qu'elle déchaînera une armée d'agents du fisc
sur la classe ouvrière et la classe moyenne américaine au cours de la prochaine décennie (cette loi démente prévoit ainsi le recrutement de 87.000 agents du fisc, qui doivent pouvoir être lourdement armés), a été rendue possible par Bill Gates Image

West Virginia protest calls out #JoeManchin’s dirty coal profits ~ by Palast Investigative Fund fellow @ZDRoberts…
The plant the @WV_Rising activists targeted in Grant Town, #WestVirginia, isn’t just any of the over 200 coal power plants still operating in the US. It’s the one where Sen. #JoeManchin makes nearly $500,000 per year selling dirty coal waste called “gob.”
Manchin sells gob (short for “Garbage of Bituminous") for a tidy profit. Activist & retired miner, Michael Whitten says: “When I worked on strip mines, we threw that’s like if you had a wood-burning stove..and you wanted to put wet wood in it—it’s just not economical.”

1/5 La lente agonie du Parti démocrate depuis #BillClinton. #JoeManchin aurait sauvé le Parti des progressistes et montré qu'un Démocrate modéré peut encore faire la différence (sic). Un chef d'œuvre. La primaire démocrate de 2016 ... remember ?
2/5 En 2016, on affirmait que le #DNC s'étai déplacé vers la gauche depuis les années 90, et qu'#HillaryClinton se présentait contre les politiques de son mari.…
3/5 Or #PewResearch expliquait que 61% des Dems souhaitaient un candidat proposant des politiques similaires à celles de #BarackObama, et 60% un candidat qui ferait des compromis avec les Républicains.…

Here're gems from #JenPsaki statement on #JoeManchin
"Sen. Manchin claims that this change of position is related to inflation, but the think tank he cites—the Penn Wharton Budg Instit—issued a report <48 hrs ago that the Build Back Better Act will have virtually no..."
"...impact on inflation in the short term, & in the long run...will ease inflationary pressures."
"#Manchin cited deficit concerns in his statement. But the plan is fully paid for...Manchin knows that: #POTUS has told him that repeatedly, including this wk, face to face."
"On Tues, Sen #Manchin came to @WhiteHouse & submitted—to #POTUS , in person, directly—a written outline for a #BuildBackBetterAct that was the same size & scope as the President’s, & covered many of the same priorities. Manchin promised to continue conversations..."

Hey, @Sen_JoeManchin, let us help you explain it! It’s not that difficult. A West Virginia family with two young kids, earning roughly $40,000, would stand to save nearly $10,000 per year under Build Back Better—on health care, child care, and more.
Without Build Back Better, the typical health insurance marketplace enrollee in West Virginia would pay about $1,000 more each year on premiums for health insurance. #BuildBackBetter #JoeManchin
WV has the 3rd highest share of residents over age 65 in the nation. 1 in 3 adults in the state have a disability. WV would disproportionately benefit from investments in home &community services to ensure that seniors & people w/ disabilities can get the care & support they need

BREAKING Thermonucléaire
Le sénateur #JoeManchin déclare à l'instant sur #FoxNews qu'il ne peut voter le plan #BuildBackBetter de #Biden et qu'il est un NON.
Terrible coup pour la présidence démocrate ET l'unité du parti avec la gauche progressiste, dindon de la farce.
2. Déclaration de #Manchin sur #FoxNews sur le #BuildBackBetter de #Biden : "J'ai présenté mes réserves depuis le début. J'ai fait tout ce qui était humainement possible. Je ne peux pas voter ce projet de législation. Je ne peux pas aller là. C'est un non"
3. #Manchin en ses propres termes. C'est clair et net. Il remercie #Biden d'avoir essayé de négocier mais dit qu'il ne votera pas le #BuildBackBetter. Camouflet pour l'autorité du président qui s'est lourdement investi...

@AnnAnne700 @Sludge @BruceAl97473014 @frankthorp @AriNatter @CNN @MSNBC @Sen_JoeManchin reneged on his agreement to support $3.5T in spending for the wildly popular #BuildBackBetterAct not for ideological reasons but because he & his family make vast amounts of wealth from the giant corporate tax cheats who will pay for it. And the #MSM is complicit.
@AnnAnne700 @Sludge @BruceAl97473014 @frankthorp @AriNatter @CNN @MSNBC @Sen_JoeManchin @JoeManchinWV's word is worthless. He agreed to spend $3.5T to #BuildBackBetter for the American people to get @SenateDems to pass his corporate trickle down BIB. Once it passed, he reneged on that agreement. He cannot be trusted. #VoteHimOut @WVCantWait
@AnnAnne700 @Sludge @BruceAl97473014 @frankthorp @AriNatter @CNN @MSNBC @Sen_JoeManchin @JoeManchinWV @SenateDems @WVCantWait Arrogant, condescending @Lawrence of @TheLastWord smugly devoted an entire show on Thursday singing the praises of #corrupt Machiavellian #JoeManchin. That's the last time I will watch his show. He needs to be fired. @maddow

Joe Manchin's daughter is behind the EpiPen greed. Neera Tanden rightly criticized her for stealing Americans' life savings to stay alive.
Chicago Tribune: "According to SEC filings, [her] total compensation went from $2.4 million to $18.9 million from 2007 to 2015. A 671% increase. That period coincides with the time when Mylan acquired the rights to EpiPens and hiked the wholesale price from about $55 to $320."
In other words, he should be referred to henceforth as Joe "EpiPen" Manchin.
