You must be some kind of optimist. I think the Dems have metaphorically committed suicide, which will allow the right wing extremists to takeover the country and place a stranglehold on the throat of American Democracy and squeeze the life right out it.

Which is more important .... saving democracy or passing a human infrastructure bill? Link the negotiations ... take a hit on human infrastructure but pass a voting rights bill to ensure the fascists do not steal future elections.

Right wing extremists have numerous well funded groups and organizations working in the background to stomp the boot heel of fascism into the face of American Democracy.
