Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) said on Sunday that he believes the Democrats’ social spending and climate bill would pass in its fundamental features, but that the most current version is “dead” after Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) revealed his opposition to the bill last month.

When asked by CBS’s “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan if the large spending measure is dead, Kaine expressed hope that some provisions will be adopted, citing a lack of support within the Democratic Party.

“Margaret, I disagree with you.” “You’re right that it’s dead; the most recent version isn’t going to happen,” Kaine said. “But if you look at the core of the bill, I believe the core is education and workforce, and things like reducing childcare and education expenses, workforce training, and then workforce support in areas like health care.”

Kaine expressed confidence that the Senate will enact a version of the plan that will assist to alleviate inflation fears, particularly after the Labor Department said on Wednesday that consumer prices rose by 7% in the year ending in December, the highest amount since 1982.

“Other parts of the law are contentious. I still believe we’ll find a core of this plan, whatever we call it, and pass it, and it’ll address some of the inflation worries directly,” he said.

After months of negotiations between White House officials and lawmakers on Capitol Hill, Democrats’ dreams of passing the Build Back Better Act, a roughly $2 trillion social spending and climate measure, were dashed last month when Manchin stated that he would not support it.
