Joe Biden’s agenda has failed again and the left isn’t happy.
Politico reported that the radical left has begun to turn on Joe Biden for not using his bully pulpit to get the bill passed.
The top legislative priority of progressive Democrats is set to die in the Senate today with barely a whimper of protest from the White House. Republicans will easily filibuster the For the People Act, killing the sweeping elections proposal once and for all.
It’s a reminder that for all the talk about H.R. 1 by both sides, it’s always been a messaging bill — a check-the-box move allowing party leaders to tell the left they tried.
The left, however, is not happy. Progressives are steaming that President JOE BIDEN didn’t use his bully pulpit to try to move the needle on the bill — or strike a deal allowing Congress to block GOP legislatures from curbing access to voting. They want to know how Democratic leaders can claim in one breath that democracy is in jeopardy — and in the next let this legislation crash and burn.
The left is reportedly “steaming” that President Biden neglected to employ his “bully pulpit” to encourage a deal within Congress or further the bill’s progress. Democrats want to know, Politico reports, how leaders can say “in one breath that democracy is in jeopardy — and in the next let [the For The People Act] crash and burn.”
Progressive activist Ezra Levin criticized Biden’s lack of activism surrounding the bill, highlighting how former President Barack Obama debated “with House GOP on the [Affordable Care Act]” or how former President Bill Clinton “gave 18 speeches on NAFTA” because that is “what legislatively successful presidents do!” As protestors mobilize and state legislators call on Congress to pass the bill, Levin simply wants to know, “Where is the president?”
Added Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), if Congress fails to “meet the moment”: “We are going to lose the opportunity to basically enact legislation for the people for a decade, or decades, to come.” It’s, as he puts it, “very, very, very bleak.” Read more at Politico.
