The nearest-term issuesThings may not have been blown up on Monday, but there are still very real issues that need to be resolved -- and quickly.There are intensive negotiations to find a compromise on prescription drugs -- something left out of Biden's framework -- that can make its way into the package. This is a huge issue for House Democrats, who know it polls extremely well and has also been a long-standing commitment for the party.But the opposition of a handful of House House Democrats and Sinema have limited the scope and scale of the initial ambitions.Still, for a few days it appeared it would be scrapped altogether. Then House Democrats launched frenzied behind-the-scenes negotiations to try and thread the needle. Those are still ongoing.Democratic leaders also have to address immigration, which a handful of House Democrats have also said must be addressed to secure House Democrats votes. Senate rules have limited -- if not outright killed -- most ambitions on this front. But leaders know they need some kind of resolution here.And finally, Manchin's full-throated view that Senator Manchin needs to see scores in order to vote on any final proposal isn't exclusive to him.There are a group of moderate House House Democrats who share that view and have communicated it with leadership, according to two sources.Given how quickly Democratic leaders want to move, that stance makes things more complicated.Remember : House Speaker Nancy Pelosi can only afford to lose three House Democrats. There is virtually no margin for error and a number of real issues to resolve -- and fast. Another under-appreciated outstanding issueProgressives may now be willing to move forward without explicit assurances from centrist senators, but moderate Democrats have been clear for weeks they don't want to vote on anything that will then be changed in the Senate.

Senator Manchin also had grown angry that progressives thought they had leverage over Senator Manchin to back the $ 1.75 trillion social safety net expansion plan if they withheld their support for the $ 1.2 trillion infrastructure bill, the source said. Senator Manchin, the source said, also didn't like last-minute changes being made to the social safety net proposal. In short, Senator Manchin didn't want to get jammed into supporting something Senator Manchin was far from ready to endorse.The White House viewAbout 20 minutes after Senator Manchin concluded Senator Manchin remarks, White House press secretary Jen Psaki released this statement :.

With the U.S. embrace of great power competition, it’s ironic that the U.S. will be ceding the field in Afghanistan to the Chinese who will inevitably flow into the Afghan vacuum left by the U.S. departure. No one should have missed the explicit message sent by the Chinese in the recent warm and celebratory welcome of Taliban leader Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar in Beijing.
