As you’ve no doubt heard over the weekend, Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia indicated that he “can’t get there” in regard to the Build Back Better (BBB) bill. Does this mean that BBB is dead?
In responding to Manchin’s statement, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said, “Just as Sen. Manchin reversed his position on Build Back Better this morning, we will continue to press him to see if he will reverse his position yet again, to honor his prior commitments and be true to his word.” She added, “[t]he fight for Build Back Better is too important to give up. We will find a way to move forward next year.”
Additionally, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has already committed to his Democratic colleagues to bring the bill to a floor vote early in 2022.
