Senate Democrats had hoped to vote on the bill, which would extend CTC payments through 2022, by Christmas. But that deadline is looking less realistic as Build Back Better failed to gain the support of a key holdout, centrist Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia.
In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Manchin said he would not support the current version of the $1.75 trillion social spending bill, adding that he has “done everything humanly possible” to reach a compromise with the Biden administration.
