Build Back Better is unpopular because it’s difficult to understand, thousands of pages long, and is jam-packed with ridiculous radical agendas that Democrats have shoved through. President Joe Biden plans to break up the bill and pass parts of it at a time. It seems pretty reasonable so that Americans can understand what Congress is passing.
Thanks to Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Biden has been stopped on many issues that he’s tried to push forward. The filibuster and voting rights are some, but Build Back Better is another.
In a press conference on January 19, 2022, Biden said, “It’s clear to me that we’re gonna have to break it up probably.” Of course, they will. Some of the radical Manchin said that passing Build Back Better would be “fiscal insanity” because the federal government has a hard time paying for social security and Medicare, much less adding more social spending programs.
Manchin also asked the Charleston Gazette-Mail, “Do we want to live in an America where one party can dictate and demand everything and anything it wants, whenever it wants?”
That’s the perfect argument for the filibuster, which the Democrat party used earlier this week.
Biden continued, “It’s clear that we would be able to get support for the 500 plus billion dollars for energy and environmental issues, number one. Number two, I know the two people who’ve opposed the Democratic side support some things there. For example, Joe Manchin strongly supports early education.”
Hundreds of millions of dollars would go toward ridiculous wildlife spending. Defenders of Wildlife report, “$250 million for National Wildlife Refuges and state wildlife management areas to address climate resilience, wildlife corridors, invasive species, and extreme weather events.”
So, $250 million is going to fight poison oak and kudzu? Great. We’re off to a great start.
Manchin stopped negotiations after it became clear that the White House wouldn’t budge on the plans to spend trillions of dollars. Then it was discovered that the revisions only shortened the time frame that the federal government was going to pay for social programs, which would be renewed later.
Biden’s cognitive decline was also shown during the speech. He suggested that Manchin supported the energy measures in Build Back Better when in reality, that’s part of the reason that Manchin doesn’t support the bill.
Manchin says that there are no negotiations ongoing, but Biden and the White House are still busy blasting anyone who goes against the bill claiming that they aren’t able to because they’re a Democrat. Isn’t that the same thing Biden said to Black Americans when he ran for President?
When asked if Biden would put the Child Tax Credit portion of the bill to the side and wait for another time to introduce it, Biden said, “There are two huge components that I’m not sure I can get in the package that I’m very passionate about. The first is a tax credit for daycare, and the second is financial assistance for community college costs.”
