Can't speak to those people, I never saw where the votes for the amendment passing were gonna come from. But getting people gassed up can be useful for mobilizing.
Didn't Chuck Schumer screw that up? I know Cal screwed up too but IIRC Schumer helped him beat another Dem that was actually a better candidate
Aint no starting to think
He has no interest in it.
Emma gets riled up pretty often, but is she lying though?
Man, stop this. In the nicest way, what you hope isn’t reality.
Remember that theory that Republicans would work with Biden cause he’s a white man unlike Obama? That came and went quick lol.
Hopefully her thumbs down becomes a shameful defining symbol for the corporate Democrat.
She wants to be a brand then make her one.
Good for her
Definitely the image I have in mind now of any milquetoast moderate Democrat
In all honesty I don't see any other bills being law after this covid relief bill. This last minute drama with Manchin and Sinema gives me no hope that they will vote to nuke the filibuster. Dems will use the next reconciliation to pass another covid relief later this year. Which means infrastructure and voting rights reform will be DOA. Now people will say how can you be so sure Dems will lose in 2022? The economy will be booming and covid will be all but gone. Thats true however if HR1 doesn't pass Dems are going to lose the House off rip. Florida GQP are already going all out gerrymandering the shyt out of the state that threatens the slim Democratic control of the House. Add voter suppression and voter apathy it would get ugly. They will expand control of the senate but it doest matter because the GQP will have the House and simply obstruct everything until the 2024 elections. So this year is their best shot to pass HR1. If it doesn't happen Dems will lose the house for a decade.
Democrats will need to run on more than Covid relief in 2022, and there is no guarantee the economy will be booming. We can enter another recession for all we know
And despite the shenanigans from Manchin, and nixing of the $15 minimum wage, this is a good start for Biden, it really is. But that's all it is, a start. Fair to wait and see what the Biden administration plans to do with the filibuster.
