Sen. Manchin, Speaker McCarthy Meet to Discuss Debt Limit

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., met with Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., on Wednesday to negotiate legislation to raise the debt limit.

Manchin reportedly urged McCarthy to enter into negotiations with President Joe Biden on legislation that would raise the debt limit, according to The Hill, which quotes an unnamed source describing the get-together as “a good meeting,” but noted that “no commitments” were made.

“We have to negotiate. This is the democracy that we have. We have a two-party system, if you will, and we should be able to talk and find out what our differences are. And if they are irreconcilable, then you have to move on from there and let people make their decisions,” Manchin said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
