Sen. Manchin restarts negotiations on Biden’s Build Back Better plan

West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin has started 2022 with renewed talks regarding President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better plan after opposing a vote on the bill before the holiday break in December.

According to Axios, Manchin is “is open to reengaging on the climate and child care provisions in President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda if the White House removes the enhanced child tax credit from the $1.75 trillion package β€” or dramatically lowers the income caps for eligible families.”

“One possible solution to the stalemate would be to remove the CTC from the Build Back Better legislation, which the Senate plans to pass with only Democratic votes,” Axios reported.

“Some Republicans, like Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), are supportive of the CTC, but it’s unclear if Democrats could find all 10 Republicans needed to clear the 60-vote threshold for passing major legislation,” it added.

Some have attacked Manchin as being responsible for hurting families and kids through blocking the bill.

Instead, Manchin is one of the only Democrats willing to speak against wasteful spending that is harming our nation.
