Will President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better mistake be stopped by Democratic Senator Joe Manchin?
Even if the spending bill were to drop to $1.75 trillion, it would still be an unnecessary spending package on items on the Democrats’ agenda and not necessarily the ones Manchin wants to see. achievable – especially since the White House’s set of suicidal climate change priorities will affect Mr. West Virginia’s situation particularly hard.
Democrats are increasingly frustrated with Manchin, but his vote is needed if they are to secure the 50 votes needed to pass the bill through mediation.
A series of historically bad economic numbers only reinforce the senator’s position that the inflationary pressures that Build Back Better will create are unacceptable.
(Here at The Western Journal, we covered how confusing the so-called Build Back Better bill was in the first place, especially given inflation and the realities of energy production. These may seem like mysteries to the mainstream media, despite the fact that they are obvious to anyone paying attention.You can help us bring these facts to our readers by clicking here. registration today.)
Despite the unfortunate actual encroachment, Manchin has further cemented his hand in the negotiations, a report from Politico indicates that the president is frustrated with the West Virginia senator, not vice versa.
According to Wednesday’s report, a source said negotiations between the White House and the Senate pivot vote “went very poorly. They are far away from each other”.
“Although Manchin and Biden have developed a warm relationship this year and collaborated on several prominent pieces of legislation, the pace of negotiations between the two Joes is threatening to strain their friendly relationship. ,” Politico reported.
“Frustration among White House aides with Manchin is high and growing,” it said. “And while Biden likes Manchin personally, he has also grown tired of the lengthy negotiations and will soon push him to make a decision and support the legislation, according to two White House sources. ”

The point is that Manchin, while reportedly not trying to pursue Biden’s agenda, has no reason to support a bill that would not limit his privileges.
Additionally, he “raised fundamental concerns about how the bill is structured, questioning its 10-year funding as lawmakers are authorizing the programs for shorter periods of time,” according to the statement. Politico.
“Sen. Manchin did not tell President Biden what to include or not include. He’s always been in favor of” the $300 a month child tax credit included in the bill, a source close to Manchin told Politico. “He has also made it clear that the cost cannot be greater than $1.75 trillion.”
The child tax credit was one of the reasons Democrats pushed Manchin on the bill, as it would expire when that year ends. While Democrats love the line item, it’s also exorbitantly expensive – $1.4 trillion over 10 years.
Manchin expressed exasperation with media reports that he wanted the credit terminated, calling them “bulls” on Wednesday.
It seems increasingly likely that an agreement on the bill will not be reached before the year ends.
As the negotiations continued to drag on, there was less reason for the senator to vote on the bill as it is now.
Inflation numbers for November were dire, with a 6.8 percent increase in prices compared to the same period last year – the strongest increase since 1982, almost 40 years. So much for that “transient” inflation, to use a favorite word of the Biden administration.
That’s a terrible enough number that two Obama administration economists – Larry Summers and Steven Rattner – alarm sound in an appearance on Bloomberg TV last week.
“We’ve confirmed that it’s not temporary, and I think everyone realizes now with the statements from Chairman Powell, with the statements from Secretary Yellen, that this is not just going to go away. as you please,” said Summers, former head of President Barack Obama’s White House National Economic Council.
“The Fed will have to take important actions to keep inflation under control unless there is some other kind of adverse development, a rift in the market or something like that,” he said.
“We’ve made the move for the first time in 40 years, overinflation, caused by an overheated economy, and that’s going to have to be taken out of the system and it probably won’t be.” such an easy thing.”
Rattner, the head of Obama’s auto industry task force, also said “you have to realize that’s a problem that wasn’t created in two months. It’s a problem created in the last two years, and so it’s sure to take years to solve. “
A liberal $1.75 trillion boondoggle bill would (among other things) get the car off the road, spend a large amount of cash to subsidies for electric cars are not competitive Replacing them and raising taxes to do that doesn’t help reduce those numbers either.
The ball is in Manchin’s field, but not just his; The vote revolved around another Democrat, Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, also no commitment to the bill. And the Democrats seem to be furious with surname, as if they were maintaining democracy by having opinions of their own.
Those opinions, such as they are, happen to be the only things that keep America out of Build Back Better’s outrageous problems.
