The Democratic Party, Splitting in Two

“And then all of the sudden, maybe an hour later or whatever, they call the vote, and the vote is for the Senate bill with no amendments. It caught the entire caucus blindsided. And there were literally members that were like: “What’s in this bill? I don’t know what’s in this bill.” […] Because the Problem Solvers Caucus, they said, we have enough votes to kill the House amendments. And they basically held. It was like these 40 members led by Representative Gottheimer that worked with Republicans to say we’re going to pass the McConnell bill. And so they effectively handed over the Democratic Party.” – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, quoted in Mother Jones,

“Bipartisan” from Democrats means collaboration with fascists. Do not forget this.

i find it mind-boggling that there are still Democrats who can even consider "working" with the Obstructionist Party, given its track record lo!these past 12+ years. Isn't the definition of insanity the constant repetition of the same mistake and still expecting a favourable outcome?

You'd think. It looks to me very much like the Democratic coalition in the House is having trouble holding together.
