The issue is it should be fully 100% paid for. The real problem here was if the (D)'s raised taxes on those who could afford to pay for this a long line of other Democrats would jump ship.

That's hilarious that you actually believe that it can be "paid for"

Of course progressives are making an argument for financial sense. The argument is tax increases on corporations and the wealthy. And for some reason in this country, we are unable to move off of the basic view that wealth "trickles down" and "a rising tide lifts all boats" when we've seen that isn't even remotely the case over the last four decades. We have a portion of the political establishment that is loathe to raise taxes under any circumstances except on the group of people that can shoulder the main portion of the bill for their expensive defense budgets. All while cutting programs aimed at the most vulnerable members of our society.

Progressives want to do the opposite. Increase the social safety net...and pay for it with tax increases..on the people and entities that are already being WAY under taxed.


You are not a progressive, you're just a liar. There's nothing progressive about your socialist/marxist bullshit. Your agenda has a 100% failure rate every time it's tried. You need to move your regressive commie ass to Cuba.

Bite me. I said that if it isn't paid for it shouldn't pass. I never argued it could be paid for as that has nothing to do with what I believe.

You costal commies have no clue what the rest of the country wants. Guess what, the government is not our God.

Stop using words that you have no idea of their meaning. It just makes you look like a shill for your alt-right media parrots.
And these are exactly the kind of programs that the government should be proposing...to help states like West Virginia.
But red state voters...only see the letter "R"...no matter if that R has done exactly NOTHING for them.
And Manchin? Just a DINO seeking his 15 minutes. Yay.

Again, using words you have no idea of their meaning. Can't see past your membership in Alt-Right Nation, eh Tiger?
Progressives and Liberals have more policy successes than Conservatives do.

Trump's Army

That is not a constitutional function of the feds, but you knew that already. You just don't give a flying fuck about the Constitution.

Manchin is throwing the wrench and the unhinged demos are coming out turning on each other. I love this.

They're going to eventually piss Manchin off and he'll switch parties and put McConnell back in as majority leader. That will make kneepads more irrelevant than she is now.

.
He could go Indy and then that will put McConnell back in power and Biden, Harris, Pelosi and Schumer will be the cause of it…

Coal is the worst fuel possible. It kills the people who mine it, it kills the people who use it, it kills the people who live close to where it's being used, and it kills the children of all of them. The only people who benefit from coal are the people who own the companies that produce it.

Like Joe Manchin.
Wrong..

Coal creates the steel that build the UPS truck that delivers your etsy orders and ironically the effort to kill coal is making it more profitable than it has been in a long time. This issue. however, is not just about coal. It is also about natural gas. It is also about screwing up the economy in some parts of Appalachia and pretending that someone else getting a job in California installing solar somehow makes the guy in WV who has no job and job prospects even better off living on welfare.
Coal doesn't power the furnaces, it an ingredient. That's a miniscule amount of the coal used.today.

And coal.is screwing over Appalachia. Look uo how many cases of black lung they're dealing with.
