Looks like the Biden agenda is going to continue to be stalled.
A new report from Axios outlines that Sen Joe Manchin(D-WV) might end up delaying Biden’s Build Back Better agenda until next year.
Inflation data is the reason cited.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) may decide to delay President Joe Biden’s $1.75 trillion Build Back Better agenda until next year, according to a report by Axios released on Wednesday.
The increasing rate of inflation likely contributes to Manchin’s reported desire to push the massive spending bill onto 2022’s legislative calendar.
According to Axios, “Red-hot inflation data validates the instinct of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) to punt President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda until next year — potentially killing a quick deal on the $1.75 trillion package, people familiar with the matter tell Axios.”
This won’t make Progressives happy.
The big picture: Progressives have long worried that after centrists got their $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill, they’d find excuses not to move on the budget reconciliation package.
It includes billions to expand the social safety net and fight climate change, among other Democratic priorities.
Business groups also are stepping up their attacks on the package, warning congressional
Democrats about its overall costs, potential effects on inflation and $800 billion in corporate tax increases.
Looks like Build Back Better might be hitting a brick wall!
