To me the whole fiasco was incredibly illustrative of the That’s What I Do I Sled I Drink And I Know Things shirt. The man didn’t espouse or try to push through any leftist policy. When asked why, the defense was always: There’s no way to get it past the Republican congress. So that means you can’t even push these issues? You can’t say that’s what you want? What was stopping him from going out and having rallies for programs like medicare for all? Nope, we can’t get it through congress, so I’m not even going to let people know that I’m presenting an alternative. He had enough of a majority in the first two years to /at least/ get a public option, if he wanted to he could have gotten the votes together. But instead we got a republican health care plan in the ACA. And the republicans ran to the right of that, because /that’s what they do/ any democrat focused on “working across the aisle” to compromise with Republicans does so knowing that the republicans will never compromise with them. So the country is continually pushed farther and farther to the right.

How do these so-called progressives who think anyone not supporting Sanders is an entrenched neoliberal explain Biden being the first choice for That’s What I Do I Sled I Drink And I Know Things shirt? They love Biden. Try winning an election as a Democrat without the support of black voters and maybe the Democratic Party picking Biden doesn’t seem so dim. Plus the statement that Democrats aren’t the majority voters in the General is false. There are over 14 million more registered Democrats in the US than Republicans. They really are missing the forest for the trees with their hatred for the Party that has, as its resume, more accomplishments and laws passed in the name of progressive ideals than any other political party in this country. Labor rights. Abortion rights. Civil rights. Environmental protections. Education protections. Health care expanded beyond anything ever done in our history.
