Democratic Senator Joe Manchin endorsed Republican David McKinley in the 2022 midterm primary in West Virginia. Manchin also criticized the Build Back Better plan pushed by President Joe Biden.

“I’ve always said, ‘If I can’t go home and explain it, and I can’t vote for it.’ And that’s why I opposed Build Back Better,” Manchin said in a 30-second video posted on his social media this weekend.

“For Alex Mooney and his out-of-state supporters to suggest David McKinley supported Build Back Better is an outright lie. David McKinley has always opposed reckless spending because it doesn’t make sense for West Virginia,” the senator asserted.

Build Back Better

Build Back Better is an ambitious $3 trillion public spending plan to modernize American infrastructure and advance the climate change agenda. The project has been criticized by various conservatives in the United States because of the way the Democratic administration would fund it.

According to El American, the first part of the project includes a plan to renew infrastructure across the United States that heavy investment in renewable energy and climate change mitigation projects.

In his campaign proposals, Biden announced that the infrastructure plan would cost around $2 trillion and would go towards modernizing road infrastructure, building new green spaces, new water systems and power grids, as well as establishing universal broadband,” the newspaper notes.
