I know the big stuff in the bill and all bills are loaded with...

details that are negotiated and added by the two sides. Each big item is broken down and I assume they have actuaries and others that look at the money side of what this or that will cost, that is why this bill would be implemented and paid over a matter of 10 years.

We have NEVER known the ins and outs of the "pork" but they do because that is how they get things passed. You get this...and I get that, etc.

I'm still reading Woodward/Costa's book Peril and I'm reading about Manchin now and how he has said it many times, he can only care about the people of W. Virginia and no one else. He is known as a stubborn and "proud" man (pride can equal downfall) and he actually likes being the hold out. He likes the attention and he likes being a spoiler and he pretends it's for the good of "his" people and screw everyone else.

Whatever. If you don't want to take the time to read or skim 2,000 plus pages, don't expect Pelosi to stand up and give a book report for you.
