Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told Democrats behind closed doors this morning that passing the reconciliation bill “will require us to stick together and work long days and nights for the next 10 days,” ABC News reports.

He added: “It will be hard. But I believe we can get this done.”

Politico: “Rallying cries aside, passing the package by next week without a single GOP vote won’t be easy. Democrats are already diving into a behind-the-scenes scrub to ensure the bill complies with the special budget rules that allow them to evade a filibuster.”

Punchbowl News: “Schumer warned that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was trying to undermine the deal and urged Democrats to stay united in order to send a message to the Kentucky Republican.”

It does not appear that Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) was at the morning meeting.
