    Absolute failure of leadership.
    The question is, was it an intentional failure of leadership? I wouldn’t put it past Schumer and Pelosi. They only care about appearances and identity politics. Helping people is not a priority.

    By letting the Parliamentarian force it out of the bill, he becomes the fall guy, and the rest can say "we tried." Now they need to get a minimum wage bill into the system ASAP.

    Huh?

    Good to see the magic, fairy-dust, mind-control politics crew back in action! I do miss the Strick and mdmh ride or dies though.

    Glad to see it's 2010 again. Time is a flat circle. I'll go back in my hole now. The left lost, so I don't have any room to complain about who won.

    Feel free to complain, just try to sprinkle in some acknowledgement of practical realities along with the fairy dust.

    There is simply no need for the "Family Separation at the border" or "Journalist murdered in Saudi Arabia" or "War with Iran?" threads anymore as those things are all now...checks notes...good.

    we don't have any Magic Fairy Dust here in Congress and by the way have you heard of a little thing called the Senate Parliamentarian? grow up.

    I'm all in - that's not where we are right now though.

    Manchin and Sinema can fuck off into the sun, but right now they exist and hold sway. Wish they didn't.

    And given the breakdown of the Senate, it is unrealistic to think money could have been gotten out sooner than it will. Due Monster Mitch, there was no way to get to 60 votes. The only way to get the full $1.9T to those who need was to do it via reconciliation which has specific rules of what must be done.

    I wish I was 25 again, but that has as much chance of happening as getting the Covid bill passed any quicker than they are doing.
