GREEN BAY, WI – Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today released the following statement after Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced he would not support President Biden’s radical Build Back Better bill.
“For months, common sense Americans made clear they did not want to create a Civilian Climate Corps bigger than the Marine Corps, double the size of the IRS, and destroy U.S. energy production. Joe Manchin listened, and has now put this crazy bill where it belongs: in a fiery (but mostly peaceful) dumpster.
“Democrats who foolishly interpreted a narrow majority in Congress as a mandate for unprecedented progressive change made a huge mistake. Now that their crazy bill is dead, I hope they come to the table to work with Republicans on getting the border crisis under control, strengthening our defense, and getting Americans back to work.”
