20. WaPo reported January 8 that he no longer supports his own counteroffer on BBB.

From the Washington Post:

"The week before Christmas, Sen. Joe Manchin III sent the White House a $1.8 trillion counteroffer to President Bidenís Build Back Better agenda that included substantial funds for climate, health-care and education initiatives.

About four weeks later, the West Virginia Democrat has made clear that he does not currently support advancing even that offer following a breakdown in negotiations between Manchin and the White House right before Christmas, three people with knowledge of the matter said.

Manchin said publicly this week that he was no longer involved in talks with the White House over the economic package. Privately, he has also made clear that he is not interested in approving legislation resembling Bidenís Build Back Better package and that Democrats should fundamentally rethink their approach. Senior Democrats say they do not believe Manchin would support his offer even if the White House tried adopting it in full ó at least not at the moment ó following the fallout in mid-December. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations."

I hope that Jayapal is saying this now because something has changed.
