WATCH: James Carville Explains How Build Back Better Will be Replaced With Build Back Differently

While Joe Biden came into office with a Democratic majority in the House and Senate, things haven’t been easy for him. Joe Manchin has created most of these difficulties. The West Virginia senator has regularly opposed Biden’s measures regardless of how they might help his constituents.

Manchin dealt Biden’s initiatives the most significant blow this weekend by announcing that he would not support the Build Back Better bill. And while this is a rough beat for the president, James Carville says there are still ways to achieve his goals.

The Democratic strategist told John Berman on CNN last night, “Build Back Better is dead, but build back differently is going to be very alive after the first of the year. They are going to get back, have substantial agreement on things. Everybody needs a little cooling-off period.”

Carville continued:

“I’m not a legislative mechanic. But it will contain many good things, and what stupid people need to do is stop talking about is what’s not in it when we get it, and what’s in it. And by the way, we have had a good year economically. Historically good year economically in this country. There is a piece in Businessweek by a guy named Matthew Winkler, a very good journalist. This has been a historic year in terms of some of the things we accomplished. And the biggest thing this president can do is keep this recovery going and fight this virus. And I think he can do both things, and I think we can get there. So I don’t think anything is dead right now at all.”
