You know how these assholes get elected over and over? Women voters.

In every election GOP candidates get 40-45% of all female voters. In many red states probably a majority. I guess when they've had enough of this bullshit....

ITS A SCAM and yet everyone falls for it. Look at all the people championing the deal...from media to politicians on both sides. NOTE...the bipartisan Infrastructure bill includes NO TAXES ON THE RICH. That means WE, THE PEOPLE will pay...just like Trumps wall. Since WE dont have the money, we will have to borrow the money....from who ? THE RICH. That means not only are they not paying, but they will be collecting interest from the loan for DECADES, ON TOP of being awarded the contracts for INFRASTUCTURE.

[bold] Biden Got Republicans. Now He Needs Democrats. [/bold]

Under pressure from progressives, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has vowed to shelve the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill until Senate Democrats, using a budget process that circumvents a Republican filibuster, deliver on their commitment to pass a far more ambitious, $3.5 trillion package to expand social programs and tackle climate change. Because Republicans are sure to oppose that second bill unanimously, Democrats will need the votes of all 50 of their senators (plus a tiebreaker from Vice President Kamala Harris) and nearly every member of their razor-thin House majority. That means finding a compromise that can win the backing of moderate Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona as well as leftists, including Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

Senate Democrats are expected to move quickly to advance the blueprint for that bill in the coming days, before leaving Washington, D.C., for the rest of August. But the actual legislation—the nitty-gritty policy details translated into thousands of pages of text—likely won’t be ready before the fall; until then, the freshly passed infrastructure bill will gather dust. For the moment, Democrats have only superficial unity on their budget. The core of the plan is a collection of long-sought progressive priorities, including paid family leave, universal pre-kindergarten, free community college, new investments in green technology, and a modest expansion of Medicare and other federal health-care programs. But big questions remain unanswered: How aggressively will the bill combat climate change? How long will these new programs—as well as the previously enacted expanded child tax credit—be funded for? Will Democrats be able to include immigration provisions to protect Dreamers and other undocumented people? Whose taxes will go up to pay for it all, and by how much?

Already, Manchin, who represents conservative coal country, has said he’s “disturbed” by elements of the proposals to fight climate change. Meanwhile, Sinema has said flatly that she won’t support a final package that costs $3.5 trillion, leading to a tweeted rejoinder from Ocasio-Cortez and a none-too-subtle threat to take down the bipartisan bill that the senator so carefully helped to negotiate. Moderates in the House are demanding that Pelosi bring up the bipartisan bill immediately and warning her not to take their support for a second package for granted. Apart from the ideological divide, senior Democrats like Representative Peter DeFazio of Oregon, the ornery chair of the transportation and infrastructure committee, are complaining that the bipartisan bill is insufficient and an encroachment on their policy turf. All the bickering highlights how risky Biden’s gamble still is: If Sinema and other moderates tank the $3.5 trillion bill in the Senate, Democrats could vote down the bipartisan bill in the House, and the president could be left with nothing.


The president needs only his own party—a far friendlier negotiating partner—to deliver them both.

The Dems are not going to be the ones to blow up this bill. The progressives can stamp their feet, but Pelosi will ultimately make sure they have the votes to pass it, with or without the reconciliation bill (preferably without).

You do realize that unless Schumer gets his rogue Democrats in line, it doesnt have a snowballs chance in hell of passing, right ? You may not realize it, but that was the plan all along. They will put forth the Bipartisan bill as a stand alone, and Biden will sign it. As much as the media claims the Bipartisan bill is 1Trillion, its only half of that.

Read my post. I acknowledged that, but women are the ones having their civil right to choose denied and it is noteworthy and BIZARRE that ANY woman would support the GOP yet nearly HALF do in EVERY ELECTION!

What this actually may indicate is that to a large plurality of women voters and non-voters this issue is not important. Hey, it doesn't bother me if it doesn't bother them, and at least at the ballot box (not counting the noisy marches because they don't count for shit) it doesn't!

Ok, now act all butthurt. I reported only facts and if low-hanging fruit and persuadable female voters don't matter to you, by all means keep losing!
