Update: Build Back Better?

It is unclear how the Build Back Better would be amended to satisfy Sens. Manchin (D-WV) and Sinema (D-AZ) with Sen. Manchin suggesting to "start from scratch," but Democrats would rather work on the existing bill.  President Biden said he's "confident" some pieces of the existing package will become law before the midterm elections, citing more than $500 billion in clean energy spending and tax incentives, along with funding for universal prekindergarten as examples of provisions that have broad support, including from Sen. Manchin (D-WV).
