After successfully addressing the failures of the past administration in managing the pandemic response and passing significant and urgent relief in The American Rescue Plan – a colossal bill that set the next stage for tackling child poverty by including temporary tax parental cuts that Democrats are planning to make permanent – the Biden-Harris Administration moved quickly to deal with the negative effects of the trickle-down economics era by centering the needs of the bottom 60% and investing directly in communities instead of the top 1%.
Democrats then kept on the pressure and moved forward with passing and signing into law the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act, the Endless Frontier Act repositioning the U.S. as a leader and global competitor in technology, the Juneteenth National Independence Day Act, as well as a panoply of progressive executive orders specifically meant to help workers and protect them from predatory employers by getting rid of barriers that limit fair competition and therefore fair wages; all that was done while confirming the most diverse and progressive judges in U.S. history at a faster pace than any past administration.
On April 29, 2021, President Biden gave a speech in Georgia pushing for his next target, a 4-Trillion economic package that redefines how America deals with Infrastructure.
Naturally, Outrage Merchants got to work and spread their outraged lies, but all that bs made one thing very clear in the last several weeks:
President Biden and Vice President Harris do not negotiate in the public’s eye or on Twitter; they instead do the hard slog behind the scenes, away from the prying and misleading lens of the propaganda machine, and then they show their work.
And so the most progressive administration will most probably pass yet another progressive bill that will create more working-class job opportunities while addressing the urgencies of climate change by targeting past failures and abuses and steering the country towards a new progressive language inclusive of green jobs while expanding environmental protections.
I expect the bloviating MSM, who amplified every nay-sayer, to rewrite the narrative and give credit to social media influencers and personalities who never passed significant bills instead of the deserving Democrats and the Biden-Harris Administration who deligently worked relentlessly on passing this significant and historical legislation. It is sad to have to admit to what we have been witnessing time and again by now from a MSM intent on elevating politicians who center White Male Grievances than to give proper credit to fighters who center Communities of Color.
It wasn’t that long ago that the country was on the brink of a totalitarian takeover, and not only did you survive it, you also toppled it. Make sure today to cement that victory by elevating those who never lost faith and kept fighting to save you from the vile clutches of a sycophantic wannabe dictator, and to celebrate every win that puts the conman years further and further behind you. Have a great Wednesday, Politicadoes!
