Tease: Coming up in ___________ minutes, who will pay for the Democrats new spending bill 

A tax on billionaires and a 15% corporate minimum tax are how Senate Democrats plan to pay for Biden’s domestic spending plan. The president is pushing for an agreement before he departs for global summits later this week. Now at 1.75 trillion, half of it’s original size, Democrats say they’re edging closer to satisfying their most reluctant colleagues. In other words, they’ve wined and dined Joe Manchin enough. (Additional Out) Which is good because this is two weeks past boring. 

Tease: In ___­­­­___ minutes, missing hiker ghosts rescuers

Rescuers tried to call his cell phone multiple times, but were unable to reach hm. LCSAR took to their Facebook page to remind people to answer their phone if they’re lost. But if you’re ‘stranded’ with a working cell phone you’re clearly not playing with a full deck to begin with. (Additional Out) Die alone in the woods or talk to someone about my cars extended warranty? That is a tough one.
