When asked how he feels about the plan to speed up the massive budget reconciliation bill, known as Build Back Better, in the Senate over the next month, Manchin said he has “a lot of concerns,” placing his hands around his mouth to emphasize how he took the elevator to the second floor of the Capitol to vote.

Manchin in September called for a “strategic pause” in the legislation, warning in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that “making budget decisions on artificial political deadlines never leads to good policy or sound decisions.”

Manchin made his comments Tuesday about the Build Back Better schedule when asked about Schumer’s plan to put it on the floor before Christmas.

Schumer told his colleagues earlier that morning that he will continue to work on the budget reconciliation package to get it approved as soon as possible.

Make no mistake, we will continue to move forward in the coming weeks by passing the remainder of President Biden’s Rebuild Better Agenda. If we want to create jobs and help families reduce costs, the best we can do is better approve reconstruction, “he said.

But Manchin has yet to be persuaded by that argument, telling reporters Tuesday that the claim that introducing another $ 1.75 trillion into the US economy will reduce inflation was a new concept to him.

“I haven’t really heard any details about that. They say it’s going down [inflation]? I’ll have to check that out, ”he said.

Manchin has repeatedly argued that Democrats should proceed slowly and cautiously on the social spending plan to avoid overheating the economy and the use of funds that could be needed in the event of a further surge in COVID-19 or other infections. unpredictable emergencies.

He told reporters earlier this month that Democratic losses in the Virginia and New Jersey elections should be a signal to lawmakers in Washington that they should slow down consideration of the budget reconciliation package.

“I’ve been saying this for many, many months, people have concerns, people are concerned,” he said the day after the Republican nominee Glenn youngkinGlenn Youngkin Infrastructure updates only get us halfway through – we also need a Build Back Better bill.

“And for us to go down a path that we have been following and try to speed it up and it has slowed down, I think we have to take our time and do it right,” he added.
