Sen. Joe Manchin III, a key swing vote for the White House’s legislative agenda, signaled Monday that a broad agreement among Democrats on President Biden’s multi-trillion dollar social spending bill could be at hand.
Mr. Manchin, West Virginia Democrat, said a final agreement could be reached by the end of the week even though there are still significant issues to be addressed.
“Having it finished with all the t’s and the i’s and everything crossed and dotted that will be difficult from the Senate side because we have an awful lot of text to go through,” he said. “But, as far as conceptually, we should.”
