If everyone else agrees to 1 trillion, I expect that Manchin will find some other reason to oppose it.

Why? I mean, he voted for the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan. He voted for the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Plan. And he's made public statements in support of the BBB.

There's clearly things that he does not want to be in the bill. There's also aspects of some of the proposals that he cares about that aren't limited to the topline number (like means-testing). But there's zero reason to suspect that he'd torpedo a $1 trillion spending bill in line with those priorities just to pwn the libs and make Ro Khanna sad.
