Bad News for Manchin: WV Jobs Up 200%

Brett Tubbs - August 8, 2018

It really is a shame that Senator Manchin felt the need to side with his Washington cronies and join in on the fear mongering over the historic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. He wasn't really sure why he was against tax cuts and struggled to explain his opposition but fortunately for West Virginians, the tax cuts passed andthe stateeconomy has been improving ever since.

·         Manchin Slammed The Tax Cuts And Jobs Act Saying, “The Wealthiest Get The Greatest Benefits.” “‘It shows you where their values are. Their choices were that the corporations get the greatest cuts, the wealthiest get the greatest benefits, and on top of that, theirs is all permanent. The people that get the least amount and the unknown is, the people that get the temporary are the people that needed it the most,' Manchin said. 'So I said, ‘Guys, wait a minute. Aren't we off-base a little bit here?’” (Edward Isaac Dovere, "'I Was An Easy Pickup': How Trump Lost Manchin On Taxes," Politico 12/19/17)
