Joe Manchin should oppose any Trump tax cut repeal

Sen. Joe Manchin says he supports repealing the Trump administration tax cuts that were passed at the end of 2017.

This is surprising because Manchin has stood up for West Virginia taxpayers against the Democratic Party-Biden Build Back Better plan that would raise taxes on working families and small businesses. By supporting the repeal of former President Donald Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, however, Manchin borrows the rhetoric of Sen. Bernie Sanders, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the radical Left. He claims that this tax increase will make the wealthy and large corporations “pay their fair share.”
