Senator Bernie Sanders on Friday published an op-ed in defense of the Build Back Better bill, citing his colleague Joe Manchin by name as one of the main sources of opposition to legislative provisions that are very popular. His office also released a statement pointing out that many Americans know the price of the bill but not what’s in it. He called out journalists, saying, “the mainstream media has done an exceptionally poor job in covering what actually is in the legislation.”
Helaine Olen, a columnist for the Washington Post remedied this in her latest column published on Monday.
