I was wondering what your update is on what’s going on in the House and your prediction of what will ultimately happen?

Inquiring minds are eager to know!

My friend’s assessment:

“This week will be telling. The infrastructure bill has a self-imposed deadline of October 31. That bill must get done before Manchin will sign off on any reconciliation bill. Infrastructure has a $1 billion provision for the Appalachian regional commission, where Manchin’s wife is cochair. That’s the connection. If I had to guess I’d say there’s a 40% chance things get put together this week. So the short answer is no infrastructure = no reconciliation!”

So there you have it… from an expert.

Now we wait, watch, and see what happens.
