The House passage would not influence his thinking
US Moderate Senator Manchin (D) says he is not decided on whether to vote to proceed to the Build Back Better bill.
- Passage of the bill in the House of Representatives would not influence his thinking
Manchin along with Arizona Sen. Sinema, are moderate Democrats that hold a lot of power in the Senate due to fact they often are the swing votes given the 50-50 split and the pattern of partisan block voting by the GOP. Sinema has indicated support for the Build Back Better bill but you never know.
The CBO is expected to release their estimates with regard to the "score" on the BBB bill on Friday.
