Contributing sentiments towards policy:

62% : Mitch McConnell had threatened that bill, something highly cherished by Schumer, if Democrats persisted with a party-line bill that raised taxes and boosted clean energy.
57% : The health care piece has already been covered: extending the subsidies that make insurance affordable in the Affordable Care Act (for three years, beyond the end of this presidency, which is important), combined with an exceedingly modest drug price reform that still yields $288 billion in Medicare savings and more for individual seniors, is fine.
56% : The legislative agenda in the Trump years narrowed to a historically unpopular tax cut and deregulation.
46% : It's based loosely on Elizabeth Warren's book profits tax from the 2020 campaign, which derived profit from financial statements to investors, not deduction-heavy tax filings; however, it seems like some credits will be able to count against profits, meaning more savings for corporations.
39% :Five years ago today, the late John McCain strode onto the Senate floor and delivered a thumbs-down to the Republican repeal of Obamacare, a white whale they had been pursuing since well before obtaining a governing trifecta.
36% : Schumer and Manchin waited until that cleared the Senate before announcing a reconciliation deal with taxes and climate back in.
32% : Laying out a climate, health care, and tax bill in March 2021 would have saved a year-plus of heartache that ruined Democratic approval ratings and created a sense of futility.
