(Reuters) - U.S. Senator Joe Manchin may delay President Joe Biden's "Build Back Better" legislation until next year over inflation worries, Axios reported on Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The $1.75 trillion proposal aims to expand the social safety net in the United States and boost climate change policy.

The House of Representatives passed a separate $1 trillion package of highway, broadband and other infrastructure improvements last week. It was passed by the Senate in August.

Biden has spent the last few months promoting the merits of both pieces of legislation.

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday that the House intends to pass the "Build Back Better" legislation the week of Nov. 15.

Manchin's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the report, which coincides with government data that showed prices rose 6.2 percent in October compared with a year ago, the largest annual increase in about 30 years.

"We stole 2020, but my approval saw one of the greatest drops of any president since the creation of the gallop poll and Kamala is the least liked VP in modern history, and even lost her own state. I have seen double digit drop in approval in independents, and there was a 15 point shift among the suburbs in Virginia giving us an humiliating defeat. We cannot control the leftist lun.atics that we manipulated to get us into office and that have dragged us far left. So rather than change to better reflect the will of the people, let's try to cram through as much legislation that we can before we lose in midterms and 2024. Let's also try to remove voter ID, pack the supreme court, end the filibuster, force vaccinate people, collude with the media/social media to censor political dissidents and those we disagree with because they are totally the fascists and not us!" -Brandon
