In those informal talks, he's outlined a deal that includes roughly $500 billion for climate and $1 trillion in new revenue.

But the senator isn't indicating any support for universal preschool or any of the other care-economy proposals that were included in Biden's initial "human infrastructure" package.

And Manchin is insisting on reducing the deficit with at least half of the revenue from new corporate taxes, as well as the estimated savings from allowing Medicare to directly negotiate the cost of prescription drugs.

It would really be something if Manchin gets on board for something and Sinema torpedoes it because of the revenue and pharma stuff. I am eager to primary her and that would make it a foregone conclusion so if it comes to it maybe the right way to go.

Progressives are hopefully smart enough to know they don't have any cards to play, but they should definitely insist on no SALT with this small of a number and tell Gottheimer and the SALT caucus to go fornicate with themselves.

Exactly. I bet his $500 billion for climate is so incredibly narrow in scope and almost exclusively tied to corporate interests.
