Opinion: Are the democrats even running things?

The Democratic Party in the United States is supposed to have the Presidency, the House of Representatives and have 50 senators in the Senate. So, in the Senate the Vice-President could vote to have a majority like the Trump Presidency showed plenty of times when Mike Pence voted in favour when it was a tie on legislation and important votes there.

It is tragic that the 45th President was able to do more than what the Democratic President Joe Biden. That’s because he doesn’t have the loyalty or the ability to have all the ducks in the row. Biden cannot keep his senators behind him or get them to vote for the legislation, which is supposed to be the unique and the what the Republic needs at this very moment. Instead, they have rebels like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema.

Even with a President who used mostly to pass Executive Orders, he was at least doing something for his base. He ordered things and pushed things forward for his political base. Alas, the Democrats doesn’t seem to be able to do that. The Biden Administration isn’t able to backtrack or fix the repressive immigration policies of the Trump era. Neither is it able to tax-loops, the corporate tax-levies and such. No, the Democrats cannot make the Supreme Court more just or fair. They cannot even try to roll out a fair minimum wage.

The Democrats have promised the magnificent “Build Back Better Act” which was supposed to be filled with stipulations and amendments that was supposed to fix a lot of the issues in the Republic. The bill is said to be costly and be vast. Though, the ones complaining about the costs could vote for the Iron Dome defence in Israel and mega-budget posts for the military industrial complex fitting Pentagon and other security agencies.

Biden and the Democrats are just spoiled by the corporate agenda, which the moderates and the neo-liberal have cheered on. The Squad or the Progressives haven’t gotten anything to prove for. Manchin is acting like his the majority of the people and should have the control of the nation. When his one out of two senators from West Virginia. Not like he has the support in whole South or in the Mid-West. This man is on a high horse and coal-money is inflicting a lot of harm. Manchin will soon sell Trump’s clean coal to the masses.

Joe Biden and the VP looks like they cannot control their own party. The voters has wasted their votes in the last election giving them control of the chambers of congress. Since, they cannot even pass proper legislation or acts of which can make the Republic better. This is is just wasted space and time, which no political party really have. Biden has nothing to show for … except for blocking international media, getting Assange and being a neo-liberal corporate stooge in office.

It is tragic that one or two senators from the own party can stop things from moving forward. It would be natural if the senate filled with Republican’s blocked it. If Mitch McConnell would block things and be a living hypocrite we know he is. That would be expected. The same could be said if the House of Representatives was run by the GOP. However, both places are now run by the Dems. Though it doesn’t look like it.

At this point of time, former rep. Paul Ryan looks like a gem in comparison to Nancy Pelosi. Because, Ryan was able to leverage and get things done. Alas, the Democrats are not even able to do that…

This is just tragic man. You thought things was bad when the Republican was running things. Now, with the Democratic Party it seems all lost and no way forward. Nothing is reformed or changed. Just wasted time and wasted space. Manchin proves that and Biden administration has nothing to counter with. Just a lot of hot-air and a congress filled with wicked corporate interests, which rules supreme. Peace.

Opinion: Manchin is the King without a Throne

It is evident the longer this lasts and this tenure of President Joe Biden. That the Democratic Party doesn’t have all the ducks in the row. Neither does the party have good enough whips to get legislation through Congress. If they did, the majority House would have easily passed a bill and the Senate would have passed it too. Just so it could be finished and in the end signed by the President.

Alas, Biden is stuck with renegade and moderate corporate Democratic Senators who isn’t willing to budge. Joe Manchin of West Virginia is one of them. A man who is willing to block and not sign a Infrastructure bill and add additional spending. While the same man has most likely accepted tax-cuts for corporations and huge spending on the military. Therefore, his reasoning is most likely flawed.

Manchin is a mediocre man. A man who could easily pose as a Republic. At least when he accepts “small” government taxes for the rich and corporation. However, will not spend additional tax-payers funding on roads, rails and infrastructure. Neither, support other government services, which is in dire need. As the aftermath and current time the public is suffering from the global pandemic. It is not like the spending bill on the infrastructure bill going to solve all of this, but it will most likely patch some of the hurt.

However, Manchin rather speak softly from a million-dollar yacht or his mansion. This man who earns fortunes on the coal-industry. He will not support the green industry, because that hurts his own businesses. That is the sort of conflict of interests a politician shouldn’t have. His involved in one trade and rather save that one. Than actually prepare the Republic of the future. That is selfishness and not care for the voters in his constituency. They are just pawns in this game of fortune for his own benefits.

If Manchin alone gets to fiddle with the bill for own self interests and lobbying concerns. Than you know that he does for the gains of his own bank-accounts. This man doesn’t care about the jobs or the climate change. No, he just wants to pocket fat-checks and ensure that his industry is alive at any costs.

Manchin can soon go out and sell “clean coal” like Trump did back-in-the-day. Because, there is no difference between these too. They are both sell-outs for the industries and the corporate agenda. He don’t care about the environment or the future.

In a sense, this man is a self-proclaimed king without a throne. His a king with a domain and title. A senator who believes he has the supreme power and rights to get the final in everything. It would be refreshing if the Majority Leader of the Senate Chuck Schumer had addressed this man and gotten him in line. However, they don’t have the character or the heart to do so. They rather bow their knees to their king and pleas for mercy…

This diet-Republican isn’t what the people are seeking for. Neither is following the will of his own state. His just listening to his own pocket and not dwelling on the concerns of West Virginia even. They are just pawns for him and his recklessness might cost the Democrats in the Mid-Terms. Since, they are not showing progress or positive changes since Trump left office. This bill might have changed the narrative a little bit. However, with the likes of Manchin.

Don’t expect much. Peace.
