Joe Manchin Forces Biden Admin to Admit ‘Inflation Is a Burden on a Lot of People’

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin has finally got President Joe Biden’s administration to admit that inflation has become “a burden for a lot of people.”

After coming under pressure from Sen. Manchin (D-WV), the White House now acknowledges that inflation is a real problem.

Manchin is urging the Biden admin to stop pushing radical spending bills that will only make the problem worse.

While leaving a meeting with White House chief of staff Ron Klain, Manchin said Biden’s team is now acknowledging inflation is a major concern that needs to be dealt with.

The senator has been the lone Democrat voice working to stop another major spending bill from Biden and the progressives due to inflationary concerns.

After meeting with Biden’s team, Manchin said:

“The White House has made that very clear.

“They made it very clear that inflation and costs is a burden on a lot of people.”

Another Democratic senator said inflation was “a major topic” in the meeting.

“What we talked about was just some of the top lines that will probably be coming out for State of the Union, some of the important things that we’re working,” said Sen. Jacky Rosen (D-NV).

“All the jobs and economy that is going to be improved because of the infrastructure bill.”

Rosen added, “there was no talk” of trying to pass Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.

“Yes, people are concerned about costs,” said Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE).

“So one of the things we talked about at our caucus was a provision of the American Rescue Plan that we passed and it’s been signed into law, a refundable, expanded daycare tax credit.

“Families that have daycare costs can now get thousands of dollars more as a tax credit off this year’s filing.

“If you reduce costs to families, that’s what matters to them.”

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said inflation was talked about “under the framework of the economy and all the things that we need to be doing to lower costs for people.”

She said:

“The way he put it was, I believe, that, ‘You can either make people poor so they can’t afford to buy anything or you make more stuff so that the prices will go down and I like to make more stuff in our country.

“There’s a lot of emphasis on making sure that our supply chains are working and that we make more things in our own country.”
