Joe Biden canceled his planned trip to Chicago on Wednesday in an attempt to save his. 5.5 trillion cost bill on Tuesday.
Biden was due to travel to Chicago as part of his Covid vaccination campaign, but he will remain in DC to try to salvage his নতুন 3.5 trillion green new deal in the guise of ‘infrastructure’.
“Over the weekend and in today’s meetings and calls, President Biden was involved with members of Congress in advancing the Build Back Better Act and the Bilateral Infrastructure Agreement,” a White House official said. “He will now be in the White House to continue the work of advancing these two laws to create jobs, grow the economy and invest in families without failing to give rich and large corporations a failed gift.”
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), the most powerful man in the 50-50 Senate, said he would not support the Democrats’ 3.5 3.5 trillion bill earlier this month.

“I, for one, would not support a $ 3.5 trillion bill, or anywhere near that level of extra spending, without further clarification of why Congress chooses to ignore the deadly effects of inflation and debt on existing government programs,” the Wall Street Journal op-ed.
Manchin has repeatedly said he is concerned about debt and inflation.
The Senate is 50-50 percent, so the bill without the support of Manchin is a lot of DOA
Democrat Senator Kirsten Cinema also said she would not support the 3.5 3.5 trillion bill so Joe Biden spent time with the two of them today.
No details have been released about Biden’s meeting with Monchin and Cinema, but White House Press Secretary Saki said the meetings were constructive.
Separately, the 1 trillion ‘bilateral’ bill is currently going through the House.
Speaker Pelosi angered far-left members of his caucus by saying that the $ 1 trillion ‘infrastructure’ bill could not wait until the Senate discussed the খরচ 3.5 cost bill.
Several left-wing members of the House have already indicated that they will vote on the 1 trillion bill as soon as the two bills are passed together.
