Manchin open to spending bill negotiations

Manchin claimed the original bill was too expensive and ambitious in its social spending. The West Virginia Senator recently told climate activists and energy executives at a private dinner that he would be willing to support a bill narrowed down to address only climate change, prescription drug prices, deficit reduction and an updated tax code.
