Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D) predicted Joe Biden’s spending bill will be completed before Christmas.
During an interview on Sunday, Klobuchar touted the Biden spending agenda, saying it would help create jobs in fields which are facing major labor shortages. The Democrat said the administration’s spending agenda would be finished in the coming weeks, adding Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) had been in constant communication with the party over the bill.
When asked if she was confident the Build Back Better bill would be completed by Christmas, Klobuchar said she was.
“I am. Sen. Manchin is still at the negotiating table, talking to us every day, talking to us about voting rights, getting that bill done, restoring the Senate. He’s talking to us about this bill,” she added.
