Biden: Build From Bottom Up, Middle Out, Not Top Down
Updated on

Key Democratic Senator Joe Manchin laid out a path to reviving President Joe Biden’s economic agenda, saying he could support a slimmed-down version that splits any revenue raised between shrinking the deficit and new spending.

Manchin’s outline was welcomed by some fellow Democrats as a sign of a potential break in the stalemate over the package of climate initiatives and social programs that was originally designed to be the centerpiece of the party’s midterm election campaign.
