Joe Biden and his Democrat coalition in Congress have tried to pass bills for a year and they have very little to show for their efforts.
They spent the better part of 2021 arguing amongst themselves about the Build Back Better bill, which never got passed. Now that we are heading into midterm season after the holidays, it is unlikely that it will ever get passed.
Democrats could have passed smaller bills to help the American people but they spent all their time chasing the big one that got away.

Build Back Broke: Joe Biden’s Democrat Majority Passes Fourth Fewest Bills in Decades
President Joe Biden’s razer-thin majority set a record for one of the most unproductive congressional terms in recent history.
Biden will soon conclude his first year in office, with few legislative victories to call his own. The end of 2021 also follows as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced he will oppose the $4.91 trillion Build Back Better Act, effectively killing Biden’s signature legislation.
Biden has a three-member majority in the House and a one-member majority in the Senate, making it incredibly difficult for the 46th president to pass legislation on a partisan basis. The former vice president also faced trouble passing bipartisan legislation, even though he has often called for “unity.”
Biden’s legislative agenda passed the fourth-fewest laws, or 36 bills, in the first eight months of his first congressional term, and the fifth-fewest in terms of what Pew Research calls “substantive” laws, among the 18 most recent congressional terms, going back to 1987. By mid-August, Congress had passed 36 laws, only 30 of which counted as significant pieces of legislation…
Now, Biden’s Democrat majority has only passed 79 bills that the president signed into law.
Next year, Republicans are expected to retake the House. They may retake the Senate, too.
When that happens, Biden is effectively a lame duck.
Democrats will get even less done then.
