Biden, Manchin hold 'constructive' phone call on social spending bill
Biden faces lowest approval ratings over COVID, crime, inflation
Rep. Chris Stewart and FOX Business contributor Deneen Borelli weigh in on the administration’s ‘harmful policies’ that are impacting Americans.
President Biden and Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., pledged to continue negotiations following what both sides described as a productive phone call regarding the sweeping Democrat-backed social spending bill, according to statements from Manchin and the White House Monday.
Biden and Manchin held a phone call as Democratic leaders push for the Senate to pass their version of the "Build Back Better Act" by the end of the year.
"Senator Manchin and President Biden had a productive conversation this afternoon. They will continue to talk over the coming days," Manchin spokesperson Sam Runyon said in a statement.
