While Manchin has been saying he’s against Brandon’s Build Back Better Bill for a while now, the left continually tries to resurrect the hope that he’ll reverse course and back the disastrously large spending bill.
However, Manchin isn’t willing to go along with their radical agenda; rather than bend the knee to the Schumer-Pelosi-Biden agenda, he’s fighting back by declaring himself firmly against it.
In fact, he’s now willing to say that the bill is “deader than ever.”
That comment came when he spoke with reporters and added that he’s had “no conversations” with Team Brandon since the Fox News interview in which he first came out against the bill and that he feels as strongly now as he did then about it
He then reportedly added to his comments and reiterated his position, saying “I’m really not going to talk about Build Back Better … there is no negotiation going on at this time.”.
And it’s not just BBB that Manchin is against; responding to leftist calls for him to join them in attempting to overturn the Senate filibuster, Manchin said doing so would be a “heavy lift” and that:
“And the reason I say it’s a heavy lift is once you change a rule or you have a carve out, I’ve always said this – Anytime there’s a carve out, you eat the whole turkey. There’s nothing left because it comes back and forth”
So, Brandon’s agenda is dead so long as Manchin maintains course and continues to buck the BBB bill and the “nuclear option” of removing the Senate filibuster.
