Bank Predicts American GDP Will Drop Due To Joe Manchin Killing The “Human Infrastructure Plan”

  • After Sen. Joe Manchin announced he wouldn’t support Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan, a.k.a. the “human infrastructure” bill, Dow Futures tumbled, and a world bank now warns of readjusted predictions for American GDP.
  • Because of Manchin’s recent interview with Fox News, Goldman Sachs gave Biden’s bill a less than 50-50 chance of passing and lowered its 2022 GDP forecasts for the US.
  • “There is also still a chance that Congress retroactively extends the expanded child tax credit, with some modifications, though we think the odds of this occurring are less than even,” Goldman said in a statement.

There is also a concern that anti-vaxxers are also causing COVID-19 to spread and evolve into yet another variant…”
