- President Joe Biden acknowledged Thursday that negotiations over his Build Back Better bill will drag on into 2022 despite efforts and pledges by Democrats to get it done before Christmas.
“It takes time to finalize these agreements, prepare the legislative changes, and finish all the parliamentary and procedural steps needed to enable a Senate vote,” the president said in a statement. “We will advance this work together over the days and weeks ahead; Leader Schumer and I are determined to see the bill successfully on the floor as early as possible.”
