Build Back Better Agenda Fails Manchin’s Litmus Test

Objectivity 3.7 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.5

Joe Biden’s Build Back Better plan does not meet Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin’s standards for approving a bill. First, the Congressional Budget Office confirmed that his agenda would add $791 billion to federal deficits in five years. Second, the bill did not receive a single bipartisan vote in the House. Finally, the child tax credit expansion is anti-work, and its climate portions are harmful to the economy.
