Build Back Better Could Be... Better in 2022

West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin dropped a bomb on the Biden administration when he said he would not support the $1.9 trillion Build Back Better legislation. With a 50-50 split in the Senate, a no vote from a Democrat was a death knell for the pending program. The senator cited rising inflation as a reason why the US cannot afford to spend another almost $2 trillion after the cost of the legislation would not be covered by tax hikes.

While Republicans cheered, the move angered many Democrats as the legislation is the cornerstone of the President’s campaign pledges. As we move forward into 2022, the Build Back Better legislation has suffered a blow, but it could yet make a comeback.
