Manchin and Sanders Clash Over $3.5T Reconciliation Package

"WASHINGTON — Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., reiterated Sunday that he opposed the Democrats' $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation package as the party pushes to pass it and a bipartisan infrastructure bill amid packed September negotiations.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., "will not have my vote on the 3.5," Manchin said during a Sunday interview with CNN's "State of the Union."

Manchin confirmed he is a "hard no" on supporting the package during an interview with NBC News' "Meet the Press.""
