Pramila Jayapal says Joe Manchin has outlined in detail the parts of the social spending bill [View all]

He supports. She wants to pass them ASAP.



What happened: Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) is calling for Congress to pass portions of the shelved $1.7 trillion social spending package before the State of the Union address on March 1.

More deets: Jayapal said Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) called her the day after he scuttled the bill on Fox News to say he supports these portions of the House-passed legislation: $550 billion on climate change, universal pre-K, eldercare and housing provisions. She indicated a willingness to get parts of the package enacted sooner and then return to other components like the Child Tax Credit.

"Let's take those things and put them together and pass them in the Senate. There's already text. It's very easy now to go through and make that bill match the things he said he would do. Now, does that mean we're giving up on the other things that he didn't say he would do? No way. No way. We're not giving up on anything."
Jayapal during an event with climate advocacy group Evergreen Action.

What's more: Jayapal said all of those areas, passable by Democratic consensus, would be "truly transformational" alone.
