Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia told CNN on Thursday that the deadly attack on January 6 at the US Capitol changed him, saying, "You can't have this many people split to where they want to go to war with each other" as he calls for Democrats and Republicans to work together on top legislative priorities in a divided Washington.

(CNN)Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia told CNN on Thursday that the deadly attack on January 6 at the US Capitol changed him, saying, "You can't have this many people split to where they want to go to war with each other" as he calls for Democrats and Republicans to work together on top legislative priorities in a divided Washington.

Manchin's comments come days after the Senate parliamentarian ruled that Democrats may be able to use a budget process known as reconciliation multiple times this year, unlocking far more opportunities for Democrats to push Biden's agenda with just a simple majority.

I understand that," Manchin said.

Manchin also stood by his opposition to changing Senate rules to eliminate the 60-vote threshold that must be cleared to pass most legislation so as to allow Democrats to push through more legislation on a party-line vote.

Manchin said that he has an open line of communication with the White House, and a good relationship with Biden.
