Op-Ed: Biden’s Economic Message Needs a Reality Check

In an op-ed published in Roll Call today, David Winston of The Winston Group highlights a glaring disconnect between the goals of the Build Back Better Act and the priorities of everyday Americans.

The entire piece is worth a read, but the following paragraph perfectly summarizes why the BBB has stalled:

When asked which was the more important priority for the country, 66 percent said it was dealing with inflation and the scarcity of goods caused by supply chain problems, while only 25 percent picked passing Biden’s Build Back Better plan. Among independents, the gulf was even wider at 69 percent to 19 percent.
