Joe Manchin: I Do Not Want 'an Entitlement Society,' I Want a 'Rewarding Society'


Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) further entrenched himself in opposition to the more leftward portions of Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda, saying he does not want to create “an entitlement society.”

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Manchin repeated his support for curling back tax cuts for wealthy Americans and funding aid programs that help children while rejecting what he referred to as an “entitlement society.”

“I’ve been very clear when it comes to who we are as a society, who we are as a nation, and why we are still the hope of the world,” he said. “I don’t believe that we should turn our society into an entitlement society. I think that we should still be a compassionate, rewarding society.”
