Manchin on whether a deal can come together

Manchin and Biden

Key Senator Joe Manchin is meeting with the President again today but the odds of progress sound low.

According to CNN's Manu Raju:

Manchin says he hasn't spoken with Biden since they met last week and said he's not going to today's meeting with a new offer. Says he's going to "listen and learn." When I asked if he thinks a deal on reconciliation can come together by next week, Manchin said: "Don't think so"

No big surprise there but keep an eye out for any developments. Nothing is certain in politics.
