Can "Build Back Better" Come Back from the Dead?

The Political Life

Public Policy & Regulation Group Leader Rich Gold joined The Political Life podcast to discuss the future of the "Build Back Better" act. He provides some insights as to what Congress and the President will do next in the wake of Senator Joe Manchin's announcement yesterday that he will not support the "Build Back Better" proposal. They spend time discussing whether Sen. Manchin will remain in the Democratic Party, or if he'll end up becoming an Independent that caucuses with the Democrats. The conversation also covers Senator Ted Cruz's deal to get a vote on sanctions tied to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline in exchange for removing holds on numerous presidential nominees, the impacts of rate increases by the Fed and the impact of several changes in the auto industry to reduce carbon emissions.
