House Democrats put paid leave back in social-spending bill, Manchin still opposes


Top House Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Richard Neal on Wednesday said they were putting a provision on paid family and medical leave back into the Build Back Better Act, their party’s $1.75 trillion social-spending bill. Last week, paid leave was among the items axed from the sweeping measure, as Democratic lawmakers worked to come to an agreement. A key moderate Democratic senator, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, told reporters he still opposes including paid leave, when he was asked about the move by Pelosi and Neal.
