Politics is hard.

I know that policy and lawmaking at the federal level are frustrating, but I am growing increasingly tired of progressive complaints of the “Why hasn’t Biden/the Democrats passed this thing that there aren’t votes for?” variety.

Yeah, it sucks that Congress passed a big military spending bill or confirmed Rahm Emmanuel to be an ambassador, but hasn’t been able to pass Build Back Better, voting rights protection, or student loan debt elimination. But there are Republican votes for the first two items, and there are not Republican votes for the rest of it.

Want to fix that? Elect better Senators and Representatives.
