West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin will be taking away the crucial vote his party members need to pass their $3.5 trillion progressive wish list.

Their spending bill proposes the largest expansion of the welfare state in U.S. history, and would also spend over $100 billion on the Judiciary Committee to address “lawful permanent status for qualified immigrants,” $135 billion for the Committee on Agriculture Nutrition and Forestry to address carbon emissions, $332 billion for the banking committee to investment in public housing, $198 billion for clear energy development, and much more.

The bill has already passed the house, but it’s looking like it’s doomed in the Senate now in its current form. “[Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer] will not have my vote on $3.5 [trillion] and Chuck knows that, and we’ve talked about this,” Sen. Manchin told CNN’s Dana Bash.

“We’ve already put out $5.4 trillion and we’ve tried to help Americans in every way we possibly can and a lot of the help that we’ve put out there is still there and it’s going to run clear until next year, 2022, so what’s the urgency? What’s the urgency that we have?” he continued.
