House Dem @WhipClyburn tells Jim @Acosta the $3.5 T figure for budget reconciliation is just a "celling" and not a "floor". Clyburn says there is $2T worth of negotiating room. Worth noting that progressives like @BernieSanders & @AOC have said $3.5 T is already a compromise. pic.twitter.com/JXZiVB73iA
