Macho Manchin is rocking and rolling in Washington. Manchin is once again laying down the hammer on Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda.
“Build back better is deader than ever,” the Breitbart News headline quotes Manchin.
“While the establishment media reported Sunday from two confirmed sources that Manchin was resuming negotiations on Biden’s $1.9 trillion reconciliation package, the West Virginia senior told reporters the massive tax and spend plan was still dead,” reported Breitbart News.
“I’m not agreeing to any of this,” Manchin said about changes to the package.
“There’s been no conversations,” he added.
Macho Manchin doubled down on his position, “I feel as strongly today as I did then,” he said.
In gaggle with several of us, Manchin makes clear he's not on board yet with push to change filibuster rules this month via the nuclear option in order to pass voting legislation.
