Manchin will not support Biden Fed Board nominee Sarah Bloom Raskin

By

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) will not vote to confirm Federal Reserve Board nominee Sarah Bloom Raskin, he announced in a statement. The decision means Raskin likely will not receive the votes needed to be confirmed.

“I have carefully reviewed Sarah Bloom Raskin’s qualifications and previous public statements,” Manchin wrote. “Her previous public statements have failed to satisfactorily address my concerns about the critical importance of financing an all-of-the-above energy policy to meet our nation’s critical energy needs.”

As the Senate is split evenly, Democrats would need unanimous support from its caucus to reach the 51 votes needed to confirm Raskin.

Raskin previously served as a Fed governor and the deputy Treasury Secretary in the Obama administration.

Annie Andersen:

ONCE AGAIN.. SENATOR JOE MANCHIN IS A THORN IN THE DEMOCRATS SIDE.

THE LATEST.. HAS TO DO WITH SARAH BLOOM RASKIN.. A NOMINEE FOR THE FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD.

IN A STATEMENT THE WEST VIRGINIAN SAID HE’S LIKEly A NO VOTE ON HER, SAYING ““Her previous public statements have failed to satisfactorily address my concerns about the critical importance of financing an all-of-the-above energy policy,”

IT SHOULD BE NOTED HERE THAT MANCHIN HAS TAKEN MORE MONEY IN POLITICAL DONATIONS FROM FOSSIL FUEL INTERESTS THAN ANY OTHER SENATOR…

BUT IN AN EVENLY DIVIDED SENATE MANCHIN’S NO-VOTE MEANS

RASKIN, WHO WAS ALREADY A MEMBER OF THE BOARD UNDER PRESIDENT OBAMA.. LIKELY WON’T GET HER OLD JOB BACK.

AND THIS IS JUST THE LATEST EXAMPLE OF MANCHIN SHOWING HE’S REALLY THE MOST POWERFUL PERSON IN WASHINGTON.

REMEMBER THIS?

TAKE SOT- Annie Andersen WHIP FROM 12/20/21

<<”Just before the holiday… Joe Manchin is the grinch who stole Christmas from Democrats.

Sunday the senator from West Virginia, citing concerns about covid and inflation..

announced he can’t support president Biden’s 1.75 trillion Build Back Better,, the social safety net bill.”>>

AND REMEMBER FILIBUSTER REFORM?

TAKE SOT- Annie Andersen

<<”To do this they would need every single Senate democrat to get on board and right now.. At least two aren’t voicing their support… No surprise who they are.. Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema.”>>

AND HOW COULD WE LEAVE OUT VOTING RIGHTS?

TAKE SOT-GWEN Baumgardner

<<”SUNDAY WEST VIRGINIA SENATOR JOE MANCHIN SAID HE’LL OPPOSE H-R1.”>>

Annie Andersen: MANCHIN WON’T BE UP FOR RE-ELECTION UNTIL 2025… SO DEMOCRATS WILL HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO WORK WITH HIM..

BUT WITH THE MIDTERMS JUST A FEW MONTHS AWAY..

THE SENATE BALANCE MIGHT CHANGE..

AND THAT WOULD IMPACT HOW POWERFUL THE WEST VIRGINIA SENATOR REMAINS.

STRAIGHT FROM DC I’M AA
