West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy Urges Manchin to Reconsider Position on Build Back Better

WVNSTV, Toys Matrix – West Virginia took the national stage Sunday, December 19, 2021 following an announcement from Senator Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) and the future of the Build Back Better Bill. Read the full article.

“I can not vote to continue with this piece of legislation, I just can’t,” Manchin said on Fox News Sunday Morning.

The controversial decision by Manchin puts several programs in jeopardy, particularly in Manchin’s home state. Manchin cited the cost of the bill, rising inflation and the spread of the Omicron variant across the country as reasons he could not support the bill in a statement, adding: “I have always said, ‘If I can’t go back home and explain it, I can’t vote for it.’ Despite my best efforts, I cannot explain the sweeping Build Back Better Act in West Virginia and I cannot vote to move forward on this mammoth piece of legislation.”
