Joe Biden on Tuesday canceled his planned trip to Chicago on Wednesday to try to save his $3.5 trillion spending bill.
Biden was going to travel to Chicago as part of his Covid vaccination campaign, but he will stay in DC to try to salvage his $3.5 trillion green new deal disguised as ‘infrastructure.’
“In meetings and calls over the weekend and through today, President Biden has been engaging with members of Congress on the path forward for the Build Back Better Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal,” the White House official said. “He will now remain at the White House tomorrow to continue working on advancing these two pieces of legislation to create jobs, grow the economy, and make investments in families, rather than failed giveaways to the rich and big corporations.”
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), the most powerful man in the 50-50 Senate, said he will not support the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion bill earlier this month.
