Joe Manchin Unhappy With Inflation, Could Push $1.7 Trillion Plan To Next Year

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is worried that the increased rate of inflation, which is currently hurting everyday Americans, is going to get worse under the proposed $1.75 trillion “Build Back Better Plan” of President Joe Biden, and he is prepared to delay its approval until next year according to an Axios report on Wednesday.

“By all accounts, the threat posed by record inflation to the American people is not “transitory” and is instead getting worse,” tweeted Manchin on Wednesday. “From the grocery store to the gas pump, Americans know the inflation tax is real and DC can no longer ignore the economic pain Americans feel every day.”

Axios report indicate that Manchin “wants to see a Congressional Budget Office analysis of the true cost of each of Biden’s proposed programs, as well as the tax proposals to fund them.”

From Axios:

Manchin has been warning about inflation since the summer.

  • He’s argued Congress should take a “strategic pause” on the bigger package until Congress had more time to assess the effects of the nearly $5 trillion COVID stimulus spending in 2020 and earlier this year.
  • His statements on Wednesday amounted to an I-told-you-so.
  • “By all accounts, the threat posed by record inflation to the American people is not ‘transitory’ and is instead getting worse,” Manchin said. “From the grocery store to the gas pump, Americans know the inflation tax is real and D.C. can no longer ignore the economic pain Americans feel every day.”
