Either Biden lied to House progressives about Manchin’s position or Manchin lied to Biden— Ryan Grim (@ryangrim) December 19, 2021
Pretty clear legislating only gets harder from here. Manchin just wrecked Pelosi’s ability to negotiate with progressives. https://t.co/Y5GDraJrsj— Zachary D. Carter (@zachdcarter) December 19, 2021

The Democrats get nothing but coal in their stocking.
A year ago, I thought that the Democrats would hang themselves if given the rope of a 50/50 Senate and would fall apart due to their own internal contradictions. I also thought we would get the $1,400 stimulus check and maybe an infrastructure bill, but not anything big like amnesty. The worst thing that ever happened to them was winning the Georgia Senate races.
Coming up soon:
Child tax credit runs out in January
Omicron wave in January
Student loan payments resume in February
Note: Do you remember when the progressives got played for fools when they voted for BIF back in November? Do you remember how we were assured that BBB would pass by Thanksgiving and then Christmas?
