Your argument fails in assuming that just because he has a D next to his name means he has to agree with you all the time. I wish he'd fall in line sooner, or have policy demands to be negotiated faster, but your whole all-or-nothing schtick all the time is tiring.

I love all the bs u keep putting in my mouth that were never stated at all.

This bill has literally already been negotiated down from the amount it needed to be, the "All" you think I am advocating for has disappeared. This Bill is already a concession, snd Manchin wants it to be a concession of a concession.

This isn't even anything that is that massive, this is the agenda that was the SOLE REASON BIDEN WON. And Manchin/Sinema literally want to tank the one thing that will 100% make or break the Dems chances in 2022. They are the modern day Byrd/McCarran

$3.5 trillion is negotiated down?

Yes, have you literally not been paying attention at all?

The bill was originally around $6 Trillion and had a lot of ambitious plans. The progressives already lowered the price tag and let go of a lot of the things in the bill, and this is as far as they are gonna go because anything less would be worthless. Time for Manchin to concede something as well

I saw that proposal and dismissed it out of hand. Good luck getting Manchin to move, though.

Imma take a wild guess and say:
•Affordable, high-quality child care
•home-based care for seniors and people with disabilities
•well paying Jobs
•lower drug costs
•Enviromental protection
•and affordable housing

Will prevent SOME deaths...

Yes, all of those who oppose a $3.5 trillion New Deal like legislation when the unemployment rate is more than a fifth below that of the Great Depression must just want everyone to die. You got us!

OH NO, THE LEGISLATION I WANT PASSED: is being compared to literally the most effective and popular pieces of legislation in US History. Which guarenteed the incumbent prez 16 years in office and killed the GOP's electoral ambitions until they campaigned on continuing it.

But go on, pretend I am the one in the wrong

It was popular because it was a time of particular economic upheaval. No serious economist thinks the circumstances are remotely similar.

No one wants to work in the many open jobs available so we should give them more money for not working. Makes sense.

There's a PANDEMIC. Forgive people for not being keen to work menial wages with a deadly virus out.

Not like there is a bill that will guarantee better wages incentivizing people to work. Maybe with a catchy name like "Build Back better".

Wtf are you babbling about lol

Kyle: How about people just get vaccinated and return to their lives and we don’t pay them to sit at home?
Ok now what are YOU babbling about, the Build Back Better plan is not "Pay people to sit at home". Clearly you skipped over me explaining that it is:
•Affordable, high-quality child care
•home-based care for seniors and people with disabilities
•well paying Jobs
•lower drug costs
•Enviromental protection
•and affordable housing

Only people i see being payed to stay at home are the disabled and elderly,
New Jersey Politico: Ah yes the age old progressive/socialist argument of:“YOU ARE SELFISH1111!!!1111!! 😡”
Is he or us he not sitting her arguing AGAINST helping people out?
