How The Bill Got Killed – For Now

Great article in National Review explains how Committee to Unleash Prosperity teamed with Larry Kudlow, America First Policy Institute, and more than 50 conservative organizations to flip public opinion – and eventually Joe Manchin against BBB. This was a five month coordinated education/advertising campaign targeted in West Virginia, Arizona, and several other key states. It’s a good read.

Excerpt:

While Senator Joe Manchin acted alone to kill President Biden’s transformational Build Back Better bill last week, conservative activists say he benefitted from a popular pressure campaign devised by a coalition of think tanks and advocacy groups that spent millions to expose the more extreme provisions within the package.

“This didn’t happen by accident,” Stephen Moore, co-founder of the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, told National Review in a recent interview. “This was a really protracted campaign, well-organized and well-financed by groups on our side — on the Right — that really just deconstructed this bill and really pounded it over and over again, especially in states like West Virginia and Arizona.”
