Biden insists he and Manchin will 'get something done' after Build Back Better setback

President Joe Biden on Tuesday insisted that he and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin will "get something done" on the Build Back Better Act after Manchin defied his party by torpedoing the key piece of Biden's domestic agenda. "Some people think maybe I'm not Irish because I don't hold a grudge. But I want to get things done," said Biden, when asked whether the West Virginia Democrat broke a commitment to him.
"I still think there's a possibility of getting Build Back Better done." The President also told reporters he had been "told (Manchin) was speaking to the liberal caucus in the House and said, 'Joe Biden didn't mislead you, I misled you.'" It was unclear what meeting Biden was referring to. Later Tuesday, the White House attempted to clean up that comment.
