WV Senator Joe Manchin Tells House Liberals That He Won’t Support Biden’s Spending Bill Without a Thorough Review of its Economic Impact

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., accused progressive Democrats of holding the bipartisan infrastructure bill “hostage” in a scathing statement on Monday, adding that he would not support the broad spending bill they favor without a thorough review of how its policies would impact the U.S. economy. Manchin’s reluctance represents a major obstacle for Democratic leaders, who are pushing to pass both bills by as soon as this week. The West Virginia senator has yet to formally endorse the spending bill, which outlines $1.75 trillion in costs over a 10-year period.

Sounds like Manchin’s been paying close attention to those outlandish sticker prices in his local supermarket of late and responded accordingly.
