Manchin Votes to Move Forward on Budget and Commits to Bipartisan Process For Final COVID Relief Package
Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement on his decision to vote to move forward with the budget resolution.
“I will vote to move forward with the budget process because we must address the urgency of the COVID-19 crisis. But let me be clear – and these are words I shared with President Biden – our focus must be targeted on the COVID-19 crisis and Americans who have been most impacted by this pandemic. The President remains hopeful that we can have bipartisan support moving forward. I will only support proposals that will get us through and end the pain of this pandemic. For the sake of the country, we must work together with laser focus to defeat the COVID-19 crisis, support our neighbors and communities who continue to suffer and get back to a more normal life as quickly as possible.”
