Manchin’s only interested in Joe Manchin, but is there any lever the rest of us can use to convince him that being the guy who took food out of childrens’ mouths for the benefit of Mitch McConnell isn’t really in his best interest?

Infrastructure bill won’t transform America or help Dems. Big reconciliation will. If we don’t address climate change infrastructure bill will be tiny fracture of what we’ll need. So Dems need to tell Manchin they get a lot of what they want or he doesn’t get a fucking penny https://t.co/Hlj4kVh3ng

Would be interesting to see a straight up vote on the child tax credit alone. Would 42 Rs filibuster?
Broad cuts are the kind of thing that didn't always need reconciliation in the past.
