Answered Prayer: Build Back Better Shelved
President Biden’s $1.9 trillion reconciliation package will reportedly be shelved until 2022 due to Sen. Joe Manchin’s opposition to inflation-exacerbating measures within the deal.
As Democrat leadership has desperately tried to win Manchin’s vote to pass the largest welfare package since Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society initiative in the 1960s, a Fox News anchor on Wednesday indicated negotiations between the president and the senator exploded in failure and will not be restarted until 2022. . .
Manchin and Republicans have voiced worries that spending trillions of dollars in welfare during 40-year-high inflation would hurt the economy. The the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated Friday the price of the package would be double Biden’s estimate.
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Wednesday:
Anyone with a shred of sense knows this is the absolute wrong time to unleash a multi-trillion-dollar taxing and spending spree. Every single day brings new evidence our Democratic colleagues should give the country a break. . . .
One of those provisions includes amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
While Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has planned to pass the package before Christmas, it appears Manchin remains the single Democrat vote blocking Biden’s massive tax and spend package from passing the Democrat-controlled Congress. . . .
Meanwhile, at the bequest of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the CBO on Friday released scoring on the reconciliation package that indicated the cost of the measure would be $4.9 trillion . . . (Excerpt from Breitbart. Photo Credit: Getty Images.)
Fox News reported Lyndsey Graham said last night:
I think Build Back Better is dead forever and let me tell you why: Because Joe Manchin has said he’s not going to vote for a bill that will add to the deficit. Well, if you do away with the budget gimmicks, Build Back Better, according to the CBO [Congressional Budget Office] adds $3 trillion to the deficit.
He doesn’t want to vote for a bill that makes inflation worse – and one thing we haven’t talked about tonight that was mentioned today … the child-care provisions in Build Back Better prohibit religious institutions from receiving money.
