Mitch McConnell says the final version of the Democrats' 'Build Back Better' bill will be 'written by Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema'

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said that the final version of the Democrats' $1.75 trillion "Build Back Better" social spending bill will be "written by Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema," the two moderate Democrats that have frustrated progressives with various objections to the legislation central to President Joe Biden's agenda.

"The House bill will come over, [Senate Majority Leader Chuck] Schumer will offer a substitute, and the substitute will be written by Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema," he said. "If there is no substitute, it would mean that neither of them got on board."

The Kentucky Republican made the remarks in an interview on "Flyover Country with Scott Jennings," a podcast hosted by conservative media consultant Scott Jennings, that was released on Friday.

McConnell sought to defend his vote in favor of a bipartisan infrastructure bill that passed the House last week, which garnered 19 Republican votes in the Senate in August but just 13 Republican votes in the other chamber last Friday. Those 13 Republicans now face calls to lose their committee assignments and threatening calls from constituents.

1. LOL Mitch. It's already been written by President Biden.

It surely won't be written at all by Mitch McConnell!!
In fact, it never would have been a thought in McConnell's Senate.

GFY

5. He has seen how Sinema and Manchin have been angering many Democrats and is hoping

to at the very least drive a further wedge between them and the rest of the Democrats with the best case scenario of getting one or both of them to switch to the Republican party.

10. +1000

My money is on both switching after the 2022 election. They're getting donations from traditionally non-Democratic sources (big pharma. fossil fuels, Chamber of Commerence), and Manchin and Sinema are getting thank-you notes for their unwavering stand on the filibuster.
