Manchin meets with McCarthy on debt limit
by Alexander Bolton - 01/25/23 1:45 PM ET

Centrist Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) met with Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) Wednesday to urge the House Republican leader to negotiate with President Biden on legislation to raise the debt limit, a sign the senior West Virginia senator could play a pivotal role in bipartisan talks.

Manchin’s meeting with McCarthy comes at a time when other Democrats, including Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Rep. Brendan Boyle (Pa.), the ranking member on the House Budget Committee, say that Democrats should not negotiate over the debt limit. 

A source familiar with the meeting said Manchin encouraged McCarthy to negotiate with Biden to find a path forward that would avoid harming the American people. 

The source described the interaction as “a good meeting” and said “no commitments” were made.
