WASHINGTON — Democrats are refocusing their message on President Joe Biden's Build Back Better bill in response to inflation concerns from voters and key centrist lawmakers as Congress moves closer to final votes on the massive spending package.
The White House and Democratic leaders have rebranded the legislation as an antidote to widespread price hikes, arguing that it would lower the cost of prescription drugs, child care and overall expenses related to raising families.
"Want to fight inflation? Support Build Back Better," Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Tuesday.
Consumer prices jumped by 6.2 percent last month, the biggest inflation surge in more than 30 years. About half of Americans overall blame Biden for rising costs, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll released this week.
Republicans, meanwhile, are seeking to create political pain for Democrats over inflation and other economic concerns. They continued to argue Tuesday that the legislation would worsen inflation, citing climate policies that they say would raise fossil fuel energy costs.
Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., the chair of the Senate GOP campaign arm, predicted that inflation would end up haunting Democrats.
Democrats consistently cite a letter by 17 Nobel laureates in economics who say the Build Back Better bill would "ease longer-term inflationary pressures" by investing in economic capacity and nudging Americans to "participate productively in the economy."

Betty Botter bought some butter
But she said the butter’s bitter,
“If I put it in my batter
It will make my batter bitter,
But a bit of better butter
Will make my batter better.”
So she bought some better butter
Better than the bitter butter,
And she put it in her batter
And her batter was not bitter,
So ’twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter
Build Back Bolshevik
Build back better is really bend back better.
We’re all getting screwed.
It’s so incredibly stupid. This is economics 101. More money creates inflation. More money chasing limited supply of goods and services causes higher prices for those goods and services.
“Want to fight inflation? Support Build Back Better,”
Unhinged, evil, or both.
Spend your way out of inflation, vax your way out of a pandemic, war is peace, evil is good, etc.
