Democrats need to focus intensely on loudly telling the story of what life in America will really be like if Republicans rule.
Want to stop autocracy? Want relief from inflation?
Democracy is the theory of everything.
Democrats have expressed frustration with Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) following his latest move on the "Build Back Better" bill.
Biden and the Democrats need to counter with the very true narrative that electing Republicans will hurt Americans
Speaker Nancy Pelosi took Sen. Joe Manchin to school by explaining why the rise in inflation has nothing to do with Build Back Better.
This amnesia threatens to push Americans back to the authoritarianism we so narrowly escaped--by a hair!--in the 2020 election.
The ongoing public negotiation among Manchin, Biden, and progressive Democrats has made clear that Manchin has been trafficking the same old stale misinformation fiscal conservatives have been peddling for ages.
Manchin’s betrayal has created an opening, an opportunity for Democrats to spur a much broader profound and urgent reflection on which party is seeking to serve to their interests.
The United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) on Monday urged Manchin to revisit his rejection of the planning, highlighting the inclusion in the bill of two key provisions.
Instead of sounding defeated, add White House Press Sec. Jen Psaki to the list of those who are sending the message that Build Back Better is not dead yet.
Speaker Pelosi said that Democrats in the House and Senate have a fundamental agreement on Build Back Better and hopes to have it passed early next year.
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) said that we all knew that Manchin couldn't be trusted and called his excuses for being a no on BBB "complete bulls**t.
In a lengthy statement, White House Press Secretary Jen Paski tore apart Joe Manchin's concerns about Build Back Better.
After Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) announced that he will not vote for Build Back Better, Sen. Bernie Sanders called him gutless.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced that talks between President Joe Biden and Senator Joe Manchin (D-W. Va.) will continue, hurting plans to pass the “Build Back Better” plan before the holiday recess.
Schumer did not offer a timeline in his remarks on the Senate floor.
“The president requested more time to continue his negotiations and so we will keep working with him, hand in hand, to bring this bill over the finish line and deliver on these much-needed provisions,” Schumer said.
Speaker Pelosi unloaded on Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for coming up with a CBO score for a Build Back Better bill that doesn't exist.
This type of coverage of the mere politics, as opposed to the underlying reality of inflation, constitutes in its own right a kind of disinformation campaign that risks turning working-class and middle-class voters back to the very Republican Party.
Build Back Better would be the largest expansion of health insurance coverage since Obamacare in 2010.
The media may try to inject some doubt and drama into the final passage of Build Back Better, but House Democrats are ready to support any changes that the Senate makes.
House Democrats burst into applause and chanted Nancy in tribute to Speaker Pelosi who delivered Build Back Better.
