Good news from The Hill

| No Comments

Looks like the communists are having a hard time getting votes.
From the London Daily Mail:

Biden arrives at the Capitol to SAVE his multi-trillion agenda: Desperate Joe asks 'permission to come aboard' for crucial meeting with warring Dems to try and keep his budget from sinking and get progressives on his side

    • President Joe Biden headed to Capitol Hill on Friday to try and kick start his multitrillion economic agenda
    • Warring progressives and centrists in his own party meant a Thursday infrastructure vote had to be shelved
    • After a late night of talks on Thursday, Friday brought fresh disarray for Democrats
    • Frustration is boiling over after Speaker Pelosi cancelled Thursday's planned vote on infrastructure but vowed to hold it on Friday
    • House progressives say they will tank the infrastructure bill unless Senate centrists back a $3.5T package
    • But one of key players, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, left Washington D.C. for a medical appointment in Phoenix
    • Her office said she was available by telephone and was ready to continue negotiations with the White House
    • She and fellow holdout Joe Manchin spent Thursday huddled in talks with White House officials
    • It meant a late night for Biden who stayed up working the phones in search of an eleventh-hour deal

President Joe Biden made a rare trip to Capitol Hill on Friday as part of a frantic effort to save multi-trillion political agenda while his congressional lieutenants insisted a vote on his infrastructure would happen before the weekend.

He joked about his visit to a foreign branch of government, asking Democratic lawmakers for 'permission to come aboard' as he arrived for a make-or-break meeting.

But his arrival was a reminder of the massive stakes in play. Presidents rarely make the trip to Capitol Hill and prefer to summon lawmakers to the White House for talks.

They tried to grab the brass ring and failed by a very narrow margin.
People are waking up and smelling the cappucino.  Good.
