White House confirms that following his talks with Dems on the Hill early this morning, President Joe Biden will address the nation at 1130ET (1630BST, 1730CET) on the 'Build Back Better' social safety net plan and his administration's spending plans.

  • Comes after headlines from FOX and WaPo indicated that a framework for reaching a deal on Build Back Better was set to be announced, but Congressional reporters now muddying the waters, with many stating there appears to still be a substantial amount of work to be done to get leftist and centrist Dem senators on board.
  • Justin Sink at BBG tweets: "seems like best framing for today is "biden is going to try to sell notion talks far enough along for progressives to vote on infra bill / allies to step up climate action" rather than "they've actually sorted out framework of what's in and how to pay for it".
  • Heather Caygle at Politico tweets on the difficulties faced by Biden admin in getting all Dem sens on side: "Last night Sen. Sanders said it was "inconceivable" he would agree to deal as currently structured. So unless Sanders has signed on, calling it a deal is fishy. Without Sanders, House leadership still has a left flank problem, no matter what Manchin and Sinema have agreed to."
