From CNN's Manu RajuGraeme Sloan/Sipa USADemocratic Sen. Joe Manchin has made his resistance to elements of the agenda that President Biden will discuss tonight clear.Manchin, who holds a crucial vote in the 50-50 Senate, will be in attendance tonight for Biden’s speech. In many ways, the fate of much of Biden’s agenda will come down to the West Virginia lawmaker.
In addition to saying he is “very uncomfortable” with trillions in new spending programs, Manchin addressed concerns with raising capital gains taxes to help pay for the plans. He also brushed back talk among Democratic leaders to try to advance the proposals along party lines through the budget process, as they are now planning to do next month.
“That's a heavy lift,” Manchin said tonight of the higher capital gains rates. “We just make ourself non-competitive. Our economy is about to take off and boom and we can't put the brakes on.”He called on Democratic leaders to hold off on a decision on using the budget process until they exhaust all efforts to pass the bill on a bipartisan basis. headtopics.com
“Coming out of the gate and making the decision is not right,” Manchin told CNN of trying to pass the bills with Democratic voices.Earlier today:Manchin made clear his concerns about the trillions more in spending.When asked about the trillions of dollars that Biden is proposing to spend on his domestic agenda, Manchin told CNN that he was"very uncomfortable" with the price tag.

Manchin said he hadn't seen the details of Biden's plans, but noted,"We're $28.2 trillion now in debt ... There's a balance to be had here so we got to work it out ... See what it is. I haven't seen it all."Asked if universal pre-K is a good idea, with Biden proposing to spend $200 billion to make that plan a reality, Manchin said,"You have to be very careful" to ensure"states pull their own weight."Read more: CNN »
