Manchin-Schumer Deal Vote Is In


Although Sen. Kyrsten Silena (D-AZ), obstructed the bill at the last minute, it appears that they agreed on language as the Manchin-Schumer deal was passed.

A few weeks back, the bill that has significant effects on climate, health care, and tax policy appeared dead.

It now moves to the House, passage expected Friday.

Was there any discussion about Sinema’s roadblock regarding the corporate minimum tax?

The Democrats found a way to get it done without the Thune amendment. This would have been a poison pill for some Democrats.

Multiple sources have informed me that Sen. Warner (Dems) will propose a “substitute amendment” to the Thune Amendment currently being voted on.

This will result in a change to the SALT pay-for, which is a poison pill for some Dems, to a new loss-limitation pay-ext.

Rosen and Cortez Masto, too.

This means that it is more likely that the House Democrats, who may have had problems with it, will now accept it. It’s now likely that it’s a done deal. Sinema, Manchin, and others sold us out and it’s a terrible day for America.
