Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) got into argument on Wednesday during which the centrist West Virginia senator said he was willing to let go of all of President Biden‘s social spending plan, according to an Axios report that has been corroborated by multiple other senators who witnessed the spat.

Fellow Democratic Sens. Jon Tester (Mont.) and Chris Coons (Del.), both of whom serve on the Senate Appropriations Committee and were both in the room when it happened, relayed details of the blowup to Axios.

According to Tester, Sanders said, “Joe said, ‘I’m comfortable with nothing.’ … We need to do three-and-a-half [trillion dollars].” . . .

Manchin apparently confirmed this saying, “I’m comfortable with zero,” and forming a zero with his fingers, according to Tester. Tester told Axios that he believes Manchin when he says he is fine with none of Biden’s multitrillion-dollar social spending plan being passed.

Coons described the verbal quarrel as a “vigorous, 10-minute discussion.” According to Coons, Manchin said, “We shouldn’t do it at all,” when speaking of the social spending plan.

“This will contribute to inflation. We’ve already passed the American Rescue Plan. We should just pass the infrastructure bill and, you know, pause for six months,” Manchin said, according to the Delaware senator. . . .

Manchin said on Thursday that it looked as though negotiators will miss the Friday deadline set by Schumer for a deal on the reconciliation bill to be reached, though he said “good progress” was being made.

“This is not going to happen anytime soon, guys,” he said. “There’s a lot of work to do, everybody’s working hard, everybody’s communicating, working hard. A lot of meetings going on.”

I pray Abba Father that you give Senator Manchin “words and wisdom that none of his adversaries will be able to resist or contradict” Luke 21:15
Keep him and his family under your wings. I declare that no weapon forge against Senator Manchin will prosper and he will rebuke every tongue (CNN) that accuses him. I pray that the Fear of The Lord come upon Senator Manchin when Shummer or Bernie Sanders will try to negotiate with him and do not cave in to pressure. Holy Spirit besides Senator Sinema from Arizona please convict other democratic senators
not to vote for these bills in Jesus Name! Thank you Father for hearing my prayer.

Lord God, we ask You to help Senator Manchin to stand firm, immovable. I pray Holy Spirit would give him wisdom and direction and a burning to do what is right.
That Senator Manchin would pray for the Lord to direct him and that he would truly be born-again.
Father, we ask you to protect him physically, mentally, and spiritually and all those in his household and staff. In Jesus’ Name!
