As I've reported on @CNBC : Sinema's communicated the below position to outside groups: - Corp tax rate of 23-24% - No increase to carried interest tax - Ceiling of 39.6% for top ind. income tax And while she *is* open to a carbon tax, Manchin isn't - making it a moot point.

WH officials proposed cuts to child tax credit + paid leave in call w/ Senate Finance, HELP, and House Ways & Means last night, sources say. Under WH counteroffer, paid leave program would: - Begin in 2024 - Cover 4wks paid - Apply to earners <$150k - Last until $100b runs out

👀 On @FoxNewsSunday , Rep. @RoKhannaUSA  suggests corp rate hike could be tabled for future reconciliation pkg: "We still have the option, then, of raising the corporate tax later to get free community college or other areas where we want to have meaningful change."

After @PeterAlexander 's pressing the WH last week on messaging that claims the social spending packaging costs "$0," today the President describes it differently: "It doesn't increase the deficit one single cent."
