Despite all the media misinformation and outright lies about the Biden / Pelosi / Schumer “two-track” holistic plan (infrastructure / reconciliation), here’s why it’s actually going to pass into law as the most historic progressive achievement for the American people since the New Deal and Great Society:
By supermajorities, the people overwhelmingly support reform of the social safety net which is the heart of this legislation. Think child care, education, expanded Medicare / Medicaid, climate change, housing, fair taxation; in addition to hard infrastructure roads, bridges, water, broadband , etc.
As for the cost? It’s really quite simple. They’re going to agree on the best deal THAT CAN PASS! If they can’t get $3.5T over 10 years they will scale it “back” to $1.5 over three years.
That’s it. Let’s get ‘er done!
