Scoop: Manchin's red lines

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) has told the White House the child tax credit must include a firm work requirement and family income cap in the $60,000 range, people familiar with the matter tell Axios.

Why it matters: While Manchinís demands would dramatically weaken one of President Bidenís signature programs to help working families, they also would reduce the packageís overall costs.

That would make it easier for the pivotal senator to support a final package, potentially higher than Manchin's previous $1.5 trillion top line.
At the same time, progressives would have a hard time accepting the changes Manchin is demanding.
They'd also fundamentally alter a program the president funded for one year in the $1.9 COVID-19 relief package passed in March.
....................................
Manchin also continues to privately tell colleagues the presidentís Clean Electricity Performance Program, a cornerstone of Democrats' plan to achieve zero-carbon electricity, is a non-starter...............................................

2. Maybe there should be a work requirement for senators.

And throw in a no bribe requirement at the same time.

6. Yep. A requirement that senators work for the people, not themselves.

4. We need to hang on to the House and expand our control of the Senate

By at least two votes. Thatís the unfortunate reality.
