Joe Biden’s Agenda Splintered by Senate Democrats over Filibuster, Gun Control, Minimum Wage Hike

President Joe Biden’s progressive agenda is facing opposition from his own party beyond Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), who with other Senate Democrats, is not falling in line with a range of priorities the administration has established. This includes gun legislation, the $15 minimum wage, and changing the filibuster to pass legislation that would minimize legal immigration, voter ID laws, and the free-market.
