McConnell also spoke on TV

Mitch McConnell sounded like he was in the mood to make a deal on CNBC in an interview, as he said the latest Republican offer wasn't a final offer.

We're going to be hearing more about this today and through the weekend. If we get a deal, that might imply lower spending but I think that's the wrong takeaway because Democrats can come back afterwards and deal with family leave and free community college. Some bipartisanship would also be welcome on the whole.
