9:09 am
host: for talking about the path ahead and perhaps the major reconciliation package. we are joined by steve bennett of bloomberg, senate reporter there, taking your phone calls on that topic. taking it for gavel-to-gavel coverage as we always do.
9:10 am
guest: joe biden lost west virginia, big. joe manchin continues to win there. he has his own unique brand. without him, they don't have 50 votes. if they don't have 50 votes, they can't pass anything.
9:11 am
manchin knows this. he has talked about raising the corporate rate to 25%, which is not the 28% joe biden has talked about. he has talked about rolling back some other trump tax cuts for the wealthy. he has not been on board with bernie sanders and his $6 trillion package that sanders is trying to sell this week. he hasn't given his blessing to all of the things joe biden has proposed, for trillion dollars over the next eight years. their childcare subsidies, community college and big climate initiatives. the climate piece i think might be the hardest to get past joe manchin. when this guy ran percent of first time around, the climate bill passed the house. that was a signal to these west virginia folks that he was going
9:12 am
to have their back on issues he cared about. host: now he serves alongside major pusher of that bill in the house. guest: this reconciliation package, coming at it from a different angle, it will be pageantry. it will be more clean energy incentives you still have to figure out a way to get joe manchin on board and get coal country on board. there's a lot of things you could do in a $3 trillion package that are good for west virginia. things like expanding medicare to dental, vision, other things. there's a lot of folks in west virginia who could probably use that. you have more liberal democrat saying look, i don't want to go on board with this bipartisan plan unless i know i'm going to get a big chunk over here of the stuff joe biden ran on and most
9:13 am
of the democrats ran on. things like paid family leave. there are so many things that they want. it is probably good for him to be seen blocking some things. it is not great for him to show up at the end of the day and not have anything. host: many of those democratic colleagues saying eliminating the filibuster would be a way to move some of that. joe manchin, not on board. guest: he's not on board. that basically killed the minimum wage increase. you have republicans who don't want one by and large. if they do, they have some other things that they want. he has talked about trying to come up with a bipartisan minimum wage deal closer to $11 or $12 an hour instead of $15. we will see if that goes anywhere. so far it has not. host: this is gary waiting on
9:14 am
our line for democrats. caller: morning, it is great to see an in person guest back in studio, it is kind of like old times. host: i felt the same way, thanks for noticing that. caller: first i have a quick comment and then a question. i want to say that the overall common good needs to be the most considered thing as opposed to the conditional supports. if i don't get this, i won't vote for it, and the amount of progress we could make on this and infrastructure is an extremely important thing with all of the deteriorating structures that are occurring around us. look at the bigger picture, everybody. where does tax revenue fall?
9:15 am
thank you. guest: taxes are going to be a very controversial part of this. biden has proposed something in the area of $3 trillion on tax increases. millionaires who die with a huge unrealized capital gain and corporations, he wants to take the corporate rate not back up to the 35% it was before trump but up to 28%. he wants to increase taxes on overseas profits. every single detail will have a fleet of lobbyists. if you watch cable tv you will see some of these tax increases. if you haven't, you soon will. they have trillis
