Dem Senator Joe Manchin announced he was a no on Build Back Better.
This killed the bill as it stands right now.
The White House then lashed out:
He just gave us more information on why he is a no-vote.
Manchin said Biden administration staffers did “inexcusable” things.
On statewide WV radio, explaining his decision to buck BBB, Manchin says Biden staffers alienated him.
"They drove some things, and they put some things out that were absolutely inexcusable. They know what it is, and that's it," he says on @HoppyKercheval's MetroNews program.

Manchin takes a shot at WH staff. "This is not the president — this is staff.. They drove some things that are absolutely in excusable."
"I just got to the wit's end of what happened."
He won't say if he'll accept scaled-back bill. Says it needs to go through committees first

One interesting part is that Manchin specifically mentions that staffers did “inexcusable” things but then goes on to say “this is not the President.”
Why not bring these concerns to Biden then?
