Political agitation aimed at the Biden administration that ignores the narrow advantage of 1 that Democrats hold in the Senate and the resistance of a handful of Senate Democrats to the more far reaching proposals of the administration – not to mention the vagaries of the socio-economic environment, shifting public opinion, and the main lines of attack of the whole right wing apparatus – is problematic at best. At worst, it fails to appreciate the complicated nature and tactical challenges of this moment if we hope to move the legislative needle in a progressive direction and increase Democratic Congressional majorities in next year’s election.
