I agree with Pocan. But not only was the day a cluster, so is the legislation that Democrats are ramming through on a Friday night.
House Democrats were on the cusp of a deal to advance the party’s domestic agenda late Friday, breaking the logjam on an infrastructure bill that has languished for months and moving ahead on their $1.75 trillion social spending package.
In the end, a statement from moderates vowing to back the social spending plan later this month, pending a positive cost analysis, finally broke the fever.
“The whole day was a clusterfuck, right?” said senior progressive Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.). “At the end of the day, what we all want to do is get the president’s agenda done, and that’s what we’re going to do.”
