Pelosi is poised to vote on Biden's $1.5 trillion infrastructure package despite the far-left wing of the Democrat party threatening to boycott if it comes with a $3.5 trillion entitlement and tax hike package.
Manchin wrote in a statement:
"While I am hopeful that common ground can be found that would result in another historic investment in our nation, I cannot – and will not – support trillions in spending or an all or nothing approach that ignores the brutal fiscal reality our nation faces."
On Wednesday, Pelosi attributed Biden's key agenda to former President Barack Obama.
The House Speaker said that Biden's "Build Back Better" agenda is actually Obama's.
"Keep government open — we intend, we have to do those imminently, more imminently even to address the full Obama agenda of building back better," Pelosi said to reporters during a House Democratic Leaders news conference Tuesday.
