Paid leave falls out of Democratic package in urgent scramble to secure Manchin's support

https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/27/politics/paid-leave-falls-out-of-biden-agenda/index.html

" (CNN) Democrats are expected to scrap paid family and medical leave from their cornerstone economic and climate package, discarding one of the central planks of President Joe Biden's proposal as they scramble to strike a deal with holdout senators, according to multiple people familiar with the talks.
The plan's survival has been in question for several days due to objections from Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat. Biden's initial 12-week proposal was scaled back to four weeks in an effort to secure Manchin's support. That was rejected, leading to an effort by New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand that attempted to find a compromise with Manchin.
That has not succeeded, one of the people said, prompting Democrats to push it out of the package as they seek to scale back the proposal's overall cost and programs to meet Manchin's demands.
Manchin made clear he would not move when asked about the provision on Wednesday, saying: "I just can't do it."

6. It would be interesting to see whether he rejected the program itself...

... or if the program would drive the total spending from $1.5 to $1.7 (or whatever) and he insisted that they stay below his artificial line.
