65. I'm sure the Chamber of Commerce has a collective orgasm

every time they hear a Democrat offer up that sad rationalization. So do the corporations lined up to dig their greedy hands into the BIF trough. Or maybe they just howl with laughter at us.

But what about the human beings that BBB was intended to help? I have no kids, paid my student loan, etc, so many of those programs wouldn't directly benefit me but there are MILLIONS of people that would have been helped. Millions. Human beings, not corporations. The whole damn country would move in a better direction.

I don't know why this has to be said yet again, but as always, it is the progressives who got fucked over (along with the public, btw). Progressives who were forced to compromise repeatedly to appease a couple of tools deployed by corporations and billionaires. Then after getting the will of corporations done, one of the tools pronounced BBB "dead", like no one else matters.

And apparently, that's the case. No one worked harder to support Biden and his agenda than the progressives in the House and Senate. No one. Yet the progressives are constantly smeared and expected to give in and toe the corporate line. Accepting crumbs or nothing.

Don't even start with that lame "why aren't you blaming republicans" because it is unworthy and an embarrassment to anyone trying that. We expect republicon scum to oppose anything that helps working people instead of billionaires & corporations. Not because they should, but because it is what they do. Like the sun rises in the east whether it is acknowledged or not, condemnation of, and disgust with, republicans is a given. It doesn't need to be stated in every conversation.

We also expect criticism and feeble excuses from the right on rightwing sources. It is constantly disappointing to have rightwing points expressed on a Democratic message board to defend mediocrity and slam progressives.

Because, again, it is the PROGRESSIVES who support Biden and want to work for Americans, not the republicons. Also not the "conservadems" "corporate dems" or whatever they call themselves. They're the ones who got in the way again.
