By and large, Democrats are proving they are only happy when they get their way, completely, and without concession.
After a group of bipartisan Senators produced an infrastructure deal, House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) panned it, and now we know why.
The child in the group, Rep. Ocasio –Cortez (D-N.Y.), is not happy with it, once again throwing out racist accusations because she is not getting her way.
When in Doubt… Play the Race Card
AOC has cried wolf so many times regarding racism, I have honestly lost count.
When Pelosi went ballistic over the legislation, we all knew there was more to it than she was letting on.
The fact that AOC is now using the race card to voice her objections surely played a role in Pelosi’s stance.
We saw how effective that tactic was when Omar compared the United States to Hamas and the Taliban.
Pelosi is terrified of these accusations, so she gives right in.
Here were AOC’s comments after the deal was reached…
The diversity of this “bipartisan coalition” pretty perfectly conveys which communities get centered and which get left behind when leaders prioritize bipartisan dealmaking over inclusive lawmaking (which prioritizes delivering the most impact possible for the most people) https://t.co/U6bqd9o51C

Now, this is not only a hit against the bipartisan team but also Joe Biden, as he initially supported the bill.
His stance also changed, however, recently stating that this bill would only be signed by him if it was “in tandem” with a much larger spending bill.
In other words, we can pass this bipartisan bill, but whatever AOC and her cronies did not get in it will be forced through via reconciliation.
I can only imagine that our Founding Fathers are turning over in their graves at the debacle that has become our political system.
