Manchin says he’s a ‘no’ on Biden’s Build Back Better social spending plan

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., delivered a potentially fatal blow to President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better bill on “Fox News Sunday,” when he announced that he is a “no” on the current legislation.

“I’ve always said if I can’t go home and explain it to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it. I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there,” Manchin said.

Despite working “every day” for months with different members of the party on the legislation, Manchin said his concerns about inflation and the cost of the program still stand.
