Biden cuts Florida COVID treatments

President Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion reconciliation ambitions have just been cut back in a couple of significant ways. This is the latest blow to the Biden agenda.

First of all, his attempt to cram an immigration amnesty into the bill has just been scratched by the Senate parliamentarian. It cannot be included as a taxing and spending measure because it is (big surprise) actually a policy measure.

Meanwhile, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., has come out against the White House’s prescription drug plan. This is good, because it is a very bad idea. But merits aside, it represents yet another area where the White House finds itself failing.

Sen. Joe Manchin has gone further, calling for the reconciliation bill to be put off until 2022. That is equivalent to killing the bill — once the infrastructure bill passes this year, there will be no pressure on moderate Democrats in the House or Senate to cooperate on the massive reconciliation bill.

With the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, Biden has been forced to pivot to domestic issues. This is why his pending failure on those issues will be such a critical obstacle for his presidency.
