I'm not sure how this will work. But it seems the infrastructure bill will be going down to defeat today. Because of progressives.

Pelosi says she'll push ahead with infrastructure vote despite opposition from progressives


The part I'm not sure of is once the compromised, bi-partisan infrastructure bill is defeated in the house, to bring it back a live again, will it have to pass the senate once again? If it does, will those senators from both sides of the aisle who voted for this thing say to Hades with it? I don't know, I'm not up on the rules of the house and senate when it comes to these things.

They may be other repercussions. Will those moderate Democratic House members also say to Hades with it all as they must win reelection in districts that could go either way and vote against the 3.5 trillion bill as payback for the infrastructure bill they needed to help reelect them? All most all progressives are from safe districts where they don't have to worry about getting reelected. All unknowns to me. But very possible.

This is where I probably differ from you all. I'd take what I can get today and come back for what I couldn't get today, tomorrow. The old bird in the hand is worth two in the bush strategy. We'll see, this hasn't happened yet.

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.
