The minimum-wage situation is dispiriting, to put it mildly. But that’s what legislating is. Even Franklin Roosevelt had to learn that lesson.
The parliamentarian’s ruling is a setback for Biden’s agenda. But a minimum-wage increase is still far from dead.
One month in, the 46th president is respecting the left even when it wants to go further than he will, and he’s dismissing bad-faith conservative complaints about his agenda.
But he doesn’t, or he never would have gone there in the first place.
He says that if a Democratic president had acted like Trump did that the two parties would “simply swap sides.” Nope!
They know they’re a minority party. They know they’ll need to cheat again, so they choose not to punish cheating even if that means the unleashing of fascism.
Democrats didn’t need to extend a trial where the verdict was never in doubt. But there is a way to get to the truth of what happened at the insurrection, and Trump’s role in it.
The videos show it was only the courage of some officers and a few strokes of dumb luck that saved some members of our government from being murdered by fans of the then president.
This is the next phase in the GOP’s war on reality: to make the Democrats seem like the party of violence.
They don’t want to punish him for what he did because they know that a Republican president may do something like it again.
