The media may try to inject doubt and drama into the final section of Build Back Better, but House Democrats are ready to support any changes the Senate makes.
Video by Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) on MSNBC’s Velshi:

Rep. Moore said:
We’re going to make it bill, whatever changes are made in the Senate. Whatever we do is going to be historical. Think about this. $ 35 per month cost limit of insulin. I had so many members of mine family succumbs to insulin. Insulin can cost $ 500-600 a month down to $ 35 a month. Child care. Really women held out, moms from the workforce. Paid family leave. Wisconsin, we’re one of those states where we expand the Affordable Care Act.
It’s hard for me to think which one of these things would be enough to drive me to vote against it. There’s so much good in here is hard to see where they are going take away enough so we can not do it stay excited about the transformation change in the way citizens will get involved their government. And no, this is not a government take over. It’s actually the government enable people to work and have a decent standard of living. This is very exciting.
The media will try to create drama around the last section as we are heading into the holiday season and they need something to talk about to do what is traditionally a slow six week news, but Democrats are going to approve this bill and send it to Biden’s desk, probably before the Senate leaves for Christmas.

The corporate media will try to create conflict, concern and doubt as this is the basis for their profit model, but the biggest obstacle was getting the bill through the House. No matter what the Senate does, Build Back Better will remain historic.
