I'm not sure what will happen in the house. There's been stories the House progressives should ransom the infrastructure until they get what they want, another on how many changes the house will make to it, thus making passage once more in the senate impossible. But who to believe? I think I'll just wait and see.

One more article was the House Democrats should pass the bill as is to ensure they, all of us get what's there. Then the House can take up their additional stuff the progressives wanted later. sort of a two tier approach. But that wouldn't work and it would fail in the senate.

I've come to the conclusion that if we're going to get an infrastructure bill, it will be the one the senate just passed. It's a battle of hard infrastructure vs. soft infrastructure.

It is said politics is the art of the possible. I'd be a pragmatist on this, take what I can today, come back tomorrow for the more or the rest. At least get something. Get what is possible. Put the impossible on the back burner for another day. That's better than nothing. At least in my book.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
