The two Democrats who are holdouts against the Build Back Better legislation both benefit from opposing it. The legislation would be paid for by a tax on the ultra-rich. Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema has been raising funds from the ultra-rich and the pharmaceutical firms who benefit from her opposition to the legislation.
The legislation will cut fossil fuel subsidies. Joe Manchin and his son own coal mines.
We cannot allow these two Democrats to benefit personally by their opposition to this legislation.
