    Even with a majority in both chambers Biden and Democrats will not pass any of that.

    If you look at elections you will see the Democrats like having only a slim margin in control and they always have someone who will fall on the sword and vote against things if it looks like something progressive will pass.

    Hell they put money into Republicans to beat progressive Democratic candidates.

    Only way you going get any of that is when we get rid of the two party system. Like with rank style voting.

      This is why I vote single issue for voting reform. If a Democrat supports IRV, I’ll vote Democrat. If not, I vote third party.

      “But Explodicle, you’re effectively just voting for Republicans! This is the most important election ever, past and future.”

      No. I’m not voting Republican either. People who do vote Republican have not voted twice. We’ve been voting lesser evil for decades and it does not work. “Buying time” for nothing to change does not work. Giving Democrats the house, senate, and presidency does not work. They refuse to even try to expand the Supreme Court. We’re being played.

      The Democrats need to go and we need an actual leftist major party. Each candidate can either get on board with that, or wait for revolution to become our only choice.

        I agree lets start a third progressive party and start taking over towns and city elections. Hell we can probably get Congress if we try hard enough.

        Democrats have no support in red states like here In Oklahoma. They can’t win but a good third party could.

      They only had a majority on paper thanks to Manchin and Sinema. But sure, let’s blame them for falling to squeeze blood from a stone.
