Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) on Sunday said he will not give fellow Democrats the vote needed to pass President Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion economic rebuilding plan. Instead, he suggested that the deal be cut by more than half, which Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) panned as “absolutely not acceptable.”

In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union,” Manchin questioned why others in his party were moving to pass the bill so quickly.

“We’ve already put out $5.4 trillion and we’ve tried to help Americans in every way we possibly can, and a lot of the help that we’ve put out there is still there and it’s going to run clear until next year, 2022, so what’s the urgency?” he said. “What’s the urgency that we have? It’s not the same urgency that we had with the American Rescue Plan.”
