Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) has delivered a death blow to Joe Biden’s massive “Build Back Better” plan confirming that he will not vote with Democrats.
Senator Manchin confirmed his plans during an interview with “Fox News Sunday” where he said, “I’ve done everything humanly possible. When you have these things coming at you the way they are right now … I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation.”
Without Manchin’s vote, Democrats have no hope of passing the bill through the Senate despite months of hard work.
Democrats’ decision to resort to bullying Senator Manchin into line failed spectacularly and with it goes President Biden’s agenda.
With the midterm election season just months away, there is no hope of Democrats achieving any major legislative victory until 2023.
