The outpouring of anger at Joe Manchin’s decision to bale on Build Back Better is perfectly understandable. But his decision, if something good is going to come out of this, should be a wake up call for the bill’s supporters around the country. What it should tell them/us is that a transformative piece of legislation, which BBB is, requires the public intervention of a people’s movement/coalition, especially when Democrats have an advantage of one in the Senate. And that didn’t happen anywhere on the scale needed. That said, the battle isn’t over.
