It Was Supposed to Be Before Thanksgiving, and Before That It Was Supposed Be Before the Virginia Elections

Sen. Klobuchar: Build Back Better bill to be finished before Christmas | One America News Network (oann.com)

The problem isn’t the timeline. It’s that they have an unpopular bill that they can’t get approved.

According to Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), Joe Biden’s spending bill will be completed before Christmas. During an interview on Sunday, she touted the administration’s spending agenda. Klobuchar said the plan would help create jobs in fields which are facing major labor shortages.

The Democrat also said the Biden’s spending agenda would be finished in the coming weeks, while noting Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) had been in constant communication with the party over the bill. When asked if she was confident the Build Back Better bill would be completed by Christmas, Klobuchar said she was.

“Sen. Manchin is still at the negotiating table, talking to us every day, talking to us about voting rights, getting that bill done, restoring the Senate,” stated the senator. “He’s talking to us about this bill.”

But if they can get Mancin and Sinema on board (a big “if”), they’re likely to lose the progressive wing. Threading the needle is going to be hard, and isn’t going to get any easier if the polls for the Democrats continue to have bad news.
