Dems plot spring sprint for party-line spending deal with Manchin
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says the resuscitation of the bill once called Build Back Better is a “high priority” for his caucus. But a revival won't be easy.
With their 50-member majority poised to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court by the end of the week, Democrats say they will quickly turn to trying to rebuild the bill once known as Build Back Better. But rather than a redux of the slow-motion collapse of that $1.7 trillion plan, they say they’ll swiftly meet Manchin where he is.
“You either do it before Memorial Day or you’re not going to do it,” said Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), who is close to Manchin.
O.K., this is fine & dandy.
But then, what about Sinema?
I don't see this going anywhere . . .
