Looks like Democrats are going all-in for their power-grab.
They are now shelving Build Back Better and pushing their election takeover bill.
NBC News: Senate expected to shelve Build Back Better bill, moving forward aggressively now on voting rights

Democrats in the Senate are preparing to miss their self-imposed deadline to pass President Joe Bidenâ€™s $1.7 trillion social safety net bill before the end of the year, according to four sources familiar with planning by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumerâ€™s office.
The decision to try again next year is based on simple math â€” Schumer doesnâ€™t have the 50 votes needed to pass the legislation thanks to Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who remains a hold out.
The decision is also in part because Senate Democrats havenâ€™t finished negotiating the bill. Provisions on state and local taxes and the methane rule remain undecided. Senate Democrats also havenâ€™t finished clearing all the procedural hurdles necessary to hold a vote.
Schumer is instead hoping to take action on voting rights that has stalled in the chamber, multiple sources said. That legislation â€” which failed to get any Republican support and therefore could not clear the needed 60 vote threshold.
Senate Democrats are discussing changing the rules to allow for passage on a 50-vote majority, a move that remains uncertain. A group of four moderate Democrats, including Manchin, have held numerous meetings in the past several days to discuss a possible rule change. Additional meetings are planned for Wednesday.
