“Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said he didn’t sign off on a framework for a $1.75 trillion social spending and climate bill before it was released from the White House,” The Hill reports.
Said Manchin: “The White House knew exactly where I stood. There was a couple of concerns that we had that we needed to work through.”
He added: “I’ve been here long enough to know that when you say you signed off on things, you got to keep your word and I’m not going to be a liar or make anyone else a liar so that’s why I hadn’t.”Save to Favorites
