Biden is Still Beating the Dead Horse of Build Back Better

Last year, Joe Biden and his allies worked at length to pass the Build Back Better Act. Build Back Better was a key part of the president’s agenda; it also carried a lot of horrible policies that would have sent America to the point of no return.

One of the most troubling aspects of this bill was the leeway it gave the IRS to oversee individual bank accounts that had transactions of at least $10,000 per year.

This covers virtually every bank account in the United States; yet, Biden and his allies said this provision was about making wealthy people “pay their fair share” in taxes.

Thankfully, the Build Back Better Act was defeated in December 2021 when Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) joined all 50 Senate Republicans in voting against the legislation.

Since December, Manchin has repeatedly maintained that he will not support this crooked bill. However, Biden is incapable of accepting this and moving on, as documented by PJ Media.

Biden’s Latest Attempt to Revive Build Back Better

Apparently, the president believes if he mentions the Build Back Better Act frequently enough, he’ll be able to make Manchin cave in and vote for the legislation.

Over the past few weeks, officials within the Biden administration have been trying to get Manchin on board with a spending bill that mirrors December’s failed legislation.

Apparently, some of the key policies would involve increasing taxes on wealthy people and corporations, changes to prescription drug operations, and clean energy reforms.

However, the reaction the White House is getting greatly mirrors the response it received on Build Back Better. Manchin has expressed an interest in bringing down the fees for prescription drugs; however, he also wants the national deficit to come down.

Biden and his allies continue to show an outright disregard for how their expenditures cause the national debt to skyrocket, thereby leaving Americans with the tab.

Meanwhile, Manchin has been one of the most outspoken voices about problems with debt, inflation, and the economy in general. He’s certainly one of the few Democrats to openly talk about this.

No Deal For Biden

The president’s intentions are not a mystery here. He very clearly wants to sell Manchin on a virtual carbon copy of the Build Back Better agenda.

Biden’s also interested in doing this before the midterms arrive, so he can throw a bone to his base and save his party from losing seats in the Senate and the House.

It’s not going to happen, though. The president’s agenda is so expensive, radical, and dangerous that it’s managed to alienate members of his own party. No matter how many ways Biden tries to dress up the Build Back Better Act, at the end of the day, it’s still rotten to the core.
