Democratic United States Senator Joe Manchin said in an interview with CNN this Sunday, 12, that “some way” for the US Congress to approve a package of US$3.5 trillion in infrastructure investment by the 27th of this month. No”, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, also Democrat Nancy Pelosi, established by the deadline.
“There’s no way for us to do this until the 27th. We still have a lot of differences, it doesn’t make any sense,” Manchin said. The agenda must be considered by the US Senate, where it has a Democratic majority, for approval before it can be passed in the House.
Munchkin is one of the Democrats who is seen as liberal and critical of some points in the infrastructure package, which starts at a total of $3.5 trillion, which he says could accelerate inflation in the US and The stimulus could affect the US economy. “The package won’t get my vote in favor of $3.5 trillion, and Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader in the Senate, knows that,” Manchin said.
The senator also expressed concerns about proposed changes to the country’s tax system, saying raising the global corporate tax rate from 21% to 28% could make the US less competitive internationally.
