Report: Joe Manchin Will Only Support $1 Trillion of Biden's $3.5 Trillion Spending Bill


After publicly urging Democrats to put a “pause” on President Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending bill, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has reportedly said in private he will only support a $1 trillion price tag.

“Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) has privately warned the White House and congressional leaders that he has specific policy concerns with President Biden’s $3.5 trillion social spending dream — and he’ll support as little as $1 trillion of it,” reported Axios on Tuesday hours after President Biden expressed hope that he can reach a deal with the senator.

“At most, he’s open to supporting $1.5 trillion, sources familiar with the discussions say,” the report added.

Given the 50-50 split in the U.S. Senate, Joe Manchin’s alleged refusal to support President Biden’s bill would mean be a serious blow to a variety of initiatives progressives hoped to attach to the bill.
