When asked about the lack of confidence in the White House, Joe is questioning the talks between the White House and moderate Democrats like West Virginia Sen. And insisted that the conversations and conversations taking place are “healthy.”

In an effort to balance broader viewpoints with those of many Democratic senators, the White House is becoming more open to the idea of ​​a “compromise.”

If the price tag on the reconciliation bill is lowered, it is unclear whether all progressives like Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT will vote for it. Sanders says $3.5 trillion is about as little as he wants to go, insisting he wants a total of $5 trillion instead. Manchin, on the other hand, wants a lower price, believing the price tag for the Democrats’ budget reconciliation bill should be above $1.5 trillion.

Saki also failed to state that progress has been made regarding the talks. “As we said in a statement last night, ‘We’re not quite there yet,’ we’re still working towards it, that’s still the case today,” Psaki said, noting that Biden was “across the country.” Will travel in” at least “one day, maybe two” next week to promote the treasured Build Back Better agenda.

But Psaki denies that the White House is not expecting a deal this week.
