A few weeks ago, Senator Joe Manchin poured cold water on Joe Biden’s plans by announcing he would not vote for the ‘Build Back Better’ bill in its current form.

Now he has made things even worse for Biden.

He won’t even support the BBB bill if they change it to suit his previous recommended changes.

Townhall reports:

Report: Manchin Withdraws His $1.8 Trillion Build Back Better Counter Proposal

West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin (D) has reportedly pulled his $1.8 trillion counteroffer to President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better social spending package, likely the final blow to Democrats’ hopes of passing the legislation.

The moderate Democrat’s decision to withdraw his proposal was first reported Saturday by The Washington Post, citing three anonymous sources with knowledge of the move. It comes just days after he told reporters that there were no negotiations about the bill.

“I’m really not going to talk about Build Back Better anymore because I think I’ve been very clear on that,” Manchin said Tuesday on Capitol Hill, adding that there are “no negotiations going on at this time.”

Manchin’s compromise included drastic changes to the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act that the House of Representatives passed in November. The Congressional Budget Office warned that the bill could add $367 billion to the national debt. Manchin has consistently opposed the legislation over concerns that it would add to the nation’s deficit and lead to a rise in inflation.

The West Virginia Democrat’s proposal included funding for universal pre-K and a billionaire tax. However, it excluded the expanded child tax credit, an item progressives demanded be in the bill.

Was Larry Kudlow the key to this change?

Either way, it’s good news for America.

Manchin is looking out for his constituents.
