WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden’s negotiations with moderate Democratic Senator Joe Manchin over a $1.75 trillion domestic investment bill have been going poorly with the two “far apart” on the contents of a bill, according to a person familiar with their conversations.

The source added that Manchin is proposing to “zero-out” an expanded child tax credit that Biden and most other Democrats want included in the “Build Back Better” legislation.
