Finish Line? Congress has not yet crossed a finish line with reconciliation and infrastructure, but it appears that there may be agreement in sight.
Although not set in stone, there appear to be some clear indications about some proposals that will not be in this bill: free community college, paid medical leave (if included, it will be just 4 weeks leave with conditions), lowering prescription pricing (if in, will be very narrow). The Child Tax Credit, Medicaid coverage gap, and tax credits for health insurance premiums look to still be included but only for a year or two.
The goal remains to cross the finish line by Halloween. Congress will go on recess for Thanksgiving Holiday and then return to tackle the other looming deadline with the debt ceiling and federal budget.
