Democrats Hopes For Far-Left Senate Agenda Crumble With Election Results

Published

on

Democrats who were hoping to they would be able to pull off some major victories in the Senate and take control of both houses of Congress, which would enable them to have an opportunity to let loose with a whole lot of socialist policies if — notice I said “if” — Joe Biden is officially declared the president, just got those dreams squashed thanks to election results that show winning a significant margin is now out of reach.

Democrats have been trying to nail down a decisive victory in the Senate that would help clear a path for them to take the majority in 2021, but things are not swinging in that direction.

So, ladies and gentlemen, let’s make something clear right off the bat. The American people are still not in full support of a socialist agenda for our country. Take solace in that.

While four Senate races remain undecided, two lean toward Republicans. At best, Democrats next year would control the U.S. Senate with 50 votes, plus the tie-breaking vote of the presumptive vice president, Kamala Harris.

The thin margin is not enough to enact a sweeping agenda that would include eliminating the filibuster and packing the Supreme Court, as many liberals had been hoping for.

“That’s crazy talk,” Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat, said when Democrats returned to the Capitol on Monday.

While Manchin and other Democrats have been vocal about their opposition to getting rid of the filibuster, others have made it clear that they want this to go the way of the dinosaur. But that isn’t likely to happen at all without a more significant majority in the Senate.

“Even if Democrats do regain the majority, there will not be the votes necessary to eliminate the filibuster,” Jim Manley, a senior aide to former Majority Leader Harry Reid said. “There are a handful of Democrats strongly opposed to such a move.”

Regardless, Sen. Chuck Schumer will likely remain the head of the Democratic Party in the Senate.

Susan Ferrechio of The Washington Examiner wrote in her report, “He’ll be tasked with determining the direction of the Democratic agenda after disappointing election results that some in the party have blamed on the liberal wish list promoted by prominent members of the party, including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat who called for defunding the police, eliminating immigration and customs officers, and packing the Supreme Court.”

“We as a party are going to have another debate about where we are going as a party, and I, for one, have no problems with that,” Manley said to reporters with the Washington Examiner. “But we didn’t do as well as we could have last week, and that is a problem.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has made it clear that she’s no fan at all of those Democrat lawmakers who have blamed the losses that the party has incurred on the far-left agenda.

“The blind impulse to blame activists and the left both demoralizes a key constituency and distracts from asking real Qs & fixing serious operational issues,” AOC tweeted.

“There are swing seat Dem incumbents who cosponsored the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, etc and if I’m not mistaken every single one won re-election,” she said.

The far left agenda is precisely what cost them the election, regardless of whether or not AOC wants to admit it. Americans do not want the extremes that she and the rest of the “Squad” continue to push forward as solutions for the problems that face our country.

Hopefully, the Democrats will start to understand this and push back against radical elements within their ranks and move back to the center.

Despite promising results for COVID-19 vaccines from pharmaceutical companies Pfizer and Moderna, Levine cited the need to ration them in three phases as a reason for extended preventative measures, according to Penn Live. Levine said, “We anticipate we’re going to be rolling this out through the winter and then into the spring and into the summer. It could take a significant amount of time to immunize everyone in Pennsylvania. I anticipate we’re going to be wearing masks well into 2021, maybe to the end of 2021.”

Not A Joke: AOC, Fauci, & Andrew Cuomo Nominated for ‘Person of the Year’ By TIME

Is this real life?

You’d think this would be an article posted by The Babylon Bee. After all, it literally makes zero sense to have AOC, Fauci, and Cuomo nominated for “person of the year.” It’s almost blasphemous, at this point. All three liberal radicals have done nothing to help their state or country – and that’s the way they like it. From New York Post: Dr. Anthony Fauci and the essential workers who have labored throughout the coronavirus pandemic are tied neck-and-neck as key nominees for Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” award, a list on which New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have also landed. The annual poll opened on Wednesday and pulls from reader vote submissions, as individuals are required to vote “yes” or “no” when asked whether or not a specific nominee should be chosen as the overall award winner. […] Other nominees include artists Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish and one-time presidential candidate, rapper Kanye West. Georgia politico Stacey Abrams, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr’s names similarly got a nod, as well as American NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, the NBA’s Lebron James and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Is this real life? Would any of these people earn your vote?
