Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Manchin Casts Doubt on Oct. 31 Deadline to Act on Biden Plan” – below is their description.

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin said there’s little chance that Congress can complete work on President Joe Biden’s economic agenda by the end of the month deadline set by his party’s leaders.

“There is an awful lot to go, I don’t know how that would happen,” Manchin, whose vote is pivotal in the 50-50 Senate, told reporters Monday at the Capitol. “Once you come to a meeting of the minds, you might be able to work something out.”

The conservative West Virginia Democrat has been at the center of negotiations. Biden talked with him by phone Monday, and he met with Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Pramila Jayapal, two progressives who have been increasingly critical of Manchin over his opposition to their top priorities.
