Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) confirmed on Tuesday that President Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ boondoggle is still dead —the trillion dollar social and environmental spending bill has not been resurrected, no talks are in progress.

When asked by CNN whether or not Manchin was speaking with party leaders about the bill, Manchin said, “No, no, no, it’s dead.”

When asked to elaborate, Manchin responded “If they’re talking about the whole big package, that’s gone.” The Senator won’t commit to a smaller package without review.

 “We’ll see what people come with. I don’t know.”

Manchin opposed Build Back in December, telling Fox News at the time, “I’ve done everything humanly possible. …When you have these things coming at you the way they are right now … I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. … This is a no. I have tried everything I know to do.”

He added, “Inflation is real, it’s not going away any time soon. … What we need to do is get our financial house in order, but be able to pay for what we do and do what we pay for.”
