I'd take the bird in hand too. I'm betting most here would. Whichever faction gets blamed for blocking it will get multiple demerits, drops in polls and approval ratings.
It's the old art of the possible thing.
But it's also par for the course for Democrats. Since taking the helm a few months ago they've managed to disappoint everybody about everything. No $15 wage. No M4A. No filibuster changes. No more covid crazy checks. The botched retreat. Inter-party battles on what should be no-brainer legislation. ICE officers on horseback whipping Haitian refugees as if the regime hadn't really changed at all.
It's exactly what you'd expect from a guy like Biden and exactly what we're getting.
Unless he starts pulling some rabbits out of hats We're gonna have President DeSantis calling the shots soon.
