@ElieNYC One year go it was perfectly clear. We knew everything we needed to know. Biden wasted a year opposing filibuster reform & chasing legislative alliance with the white supremacist party that had just supported treason & overthrow of democratic government.
@ElieNYC And for what. A GOP-Manchin infrastructure bill that, without BBB, is actually *regressive* on the climate crisis. #HighwaysForHitler

Motherfucker, we did that already.

70-80% of Mansion's OWN CONSTITUENTS want the $3.5 trillion Build Back Better reconciliation package.

What a corrupt yachthole.
80% of his constituents in West Virginia WANT the package he is blocking. 77% of CONSERVATIVES in West Virginia want it.

This isn't about conservatism, it isn't about "red states" - it's about Mansion's fossil fuel debts - & personal profits.
The man is corrupt and deaf to the people of his state.

Democrats can't let corruption drive the ship of state. We simply cannot. @SenSchumer wake the fuck up.

@AJentleson He gave Manchin an absolutely absurd, ABSURD, promise like this and didn't even secure his vote to get rid of the filibuster so Democrats could actually GOVERN & LEGISLATE?

And kept this all a SECRET?
@AJentleson Schumer spokesman says he didn't, but either way the point is, this is MATERIAL info that he kept from the public AND his own caucus as voting rights slipped away. Clearly if you know this, there is NO WAY as a Senator you vote on BIF before reconciliation

One truth is that Dem leadership put climate policy in the hands of our most corrupt, fossil fueled Senators like Manchin; that he cut climate funding to less than 20% of even the original, inadequate "Build Back Better" plan, & most Dems aren't fighting.
Nearly every voter who might vote for a Dem, wants BBB. @dataforprogress poll "is not an outlier. Every recent poll of the reconciliation bill found supporters outnumbering opponents, including Pew (+24), Fox News (+22), Monmouth (+28), & Quinnipiac (+30)"

For almost half a YEAR, the GOP has successfully used Manchin's fake "bipartisanship" & strategy of splitting the bills to drag this out.

Last time Dems had the House, Senate & WH they acted like they had all the time in the world, & lost control at year two.

He rolled us.
Fossil fuel-funded Dems like Manchin & corrupt jackasses like Sinema colluded w/Republicans to write out what we actually need to fight climate change for our kids. The whole Dem caucus shd be fighting back, not leaving it to only progressives to care.

"Bipartisanship" would have landed us on the high side of roughly halfway between Biden/Dem's $2.5 trillion in domestic programs that fight climate change - and GOP's ZERO for the same.

The BIF lands at ONE FIFTH - $500 billion - including ADDED funding for fossil fuel companies

Right-wing Democrats are engaging in self-dealing and corruption, not legislation or statecraft.
They're not even trying a song & dance to hide it.

Reminder of what conservative Dems colluding with anti-US-democracy Republicans already WROTE OUT of the infrastructure bill.

If you consider this a "win" that helps us fight climate change or get more Democrats get elected next year, I truly think you have given up on us all.
Meanwhile the same Republicans trying to force Dems to pass a pathetic, insufficient bill that rewards fossil fuel companies by having taxpayers pay to clean up their pollution, are closing ranks against Democrats to try to force the US into default:
It's no secret what's driving every single one of these Democratic Senators to join hands with people they KNOW supported overturning the popular, valid election of a Democratic President, & of our democracy itself: Corruption.
