"Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., was the key obstacle to reaching a deal this week on passing both the Democratic infrastructure bill that passed the Senate last month and the broader bill to address climate change and provide $3.5 trillion over 10 years for a vast range of spending that would impact the lives of poor and middle-income people. As a result, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed back the House infrastructure vote, suggesting it might come on Friday. (At publication time, that had not yet happened.)
Progressives in the House so far have held fast against passing the infrastructure bill — which they support — without also getting the Senate, including Manchin, to approve the broader bill, with the measures that Biden campaigned on. That bill would create universal pre-K, saving the average family an estimated $13,000 annually; lower the costs of some child care; give free school meals to 9 million children; add dental, eye and hearing coverage to Medicare; lower costs for Obamacare enrollees; lower drug prices; invest in climate-change measures that would reduce carbon emissions, lower energy bills, create thousands of conservation jobs, and mitigate wildfires; and fund both school repairs and construction of new schools."
