"Something's Not Matching Up": Manchin Refuses To Support $3.5 Trillion Spending Plan

Moderate Senate Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia announced on Sunday that he won't support President Biden's $3.5 trillion economic spending plan, telling NBC's "Meet The Press" that he doesn't want to rush into a fiscally irresponsible deal.

"We don't have the need to rush into this and get it done within one week because there's some deadline we're meeting or someone's going to fall through the cracks," he said, adding "I want to make sure that children are getting taken care of, that people are basically having an opportunity to go back to work. We have 11 million jobs that we haven't filled, 8 million people still unemployed. Something's not matching up there."

Manchin also said that if he were writing the bill from scratch, he'd start by adjusting the tax code.
