- Sen. Joe Manchin. D-W.Va., said Wednesday he will vote against Daniel Werfel for Internal Revenue Service commissioner, a week after President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the agency was approved by a Senate committee.
- Manchin, who has often blocked Biden’s legislative priorities, said he was opposing Werfel on the basis of the Biden administration’s implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act, a sprawling tax and climate bill that Manchin was key in passing.
- “At every turn, this Administration has ignored Congressional intent when implementing the Inflation Reduction Act,” Manchin said in a statement.
