What Sen. Joe Manchin doesn't get

In response to Sen. Joe Manchin's WSJ op-ed, where he called for a pause on Biden's $3.5 trillion budget plan because of America's inability to afford it, Jeffrey Sachs writes that America can easily raise the needed $3.5 trillion in revenues. That amount, Sachs argues, is not large relative to the US economy or the immense wealth of America's elite, who could be taxed more to fully fund the plan.

Opinion: What Sen. Joe Manchin doesn't get

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is likely to be the deciding vote on the $3.5 trillion Senate reconciliation bill to expand spending on social and infrastructure programs. Because of his concerns over rising debt and inflation, Manchin wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that he will not support the bill until he gets answers to a basic question: "What should we fund, and what can we simply not afford?"
