Senate Democrats appear ready to delay consideration of President Biden’s Build Back Better bill. The nearly two-trillion-dollar measure is stuck in an ongoing dispute with moderate West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin. The Build Back Better bill is at the heart of Biden’s legislative agenda.

The measure aims to widen the social safety net while aggressively tackling climate change. Senate Democrats have hoped to vote on the bill by Christmas.
