Capito and the Republicans characterized their proposal as focused on traditional infrastructure needs, including roads, bridges, rail, air, water, sewer and broadband. "I can't believe that people believe that if you just do it my way, that will give us the momentum to get through the next election".

Manchin was also one of eight Democrats who voted against Vermont Sen.
