A Wall Street Journal opinion piece subheadline well summarizes the piece itself:
the Speaker pushes Democrats to take votes that will end careers in 2022
The WSJ‘s Editors write this as if they take the matter seriously. But they, and far too many others who also should know better, are taking far too short a view.
“Career ending” votes were taken in favor of Obamacare, too. Obamacare survives, and here is the Progressive-Democratic Party back in power.
So it will be with the Progressive-Democrat reconciliation bill and the pre-amendment to it that is the “infrastructure” bill. A few Progressive-Democrats might lose their seats as they vote to force passage, but these two destructive bills will live on.
And, dangerously, the Progressive-Democratic Party will recover.
