Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema said Thursday she will support a budget reconciliation bill containing some of the Democrats’ legislative priorities on healthcare and the climate crisis. As a condition of her support, Sinema demanded Democratic leaders agree to abandon a provision that would close the “carried interest loophole” — a tax break exploited by hedge fund and private equity managers to pay lower tax rates than middle-income workers. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said a revised version of the bill would be released on Saturday.
