Good News, AOC is Unhappy
That means anyone with a bit of common sense has something to be happy about.
AOC is unhappy with Senator Joe Manchin who wrote a WSJ Op-Ed seeking a "Strategic Pause on Reconciliation"
In response, I asked "Did Biden's Budget Just Die?"
Manchin's Seven Key Takeaways
- Inflation tax on every middle- and working-class American.
- Congress should hit a strategic pause on the budget-reconciliation legislation.
- Making budgetary decisions under artificial political deadlines never leads to good policy or sound decisions
- If I can’t explain it, I can’t vote for it, and I can’t explain why my Democratic colleagues are rushing to spend $3.5 trillion.
- This is even more important now as the Social Security and Medicare Trustees have sounded the alarm that these life-saving programs will be insolvent.
- It was wrong when the Republicans did it, and it is wrong now.
- It would serve us well to remember that members of Congress swear allegiance to this nation and fidelity to its Constitution, not to a political party.
As expected it did not take long for AOC and others to respond.

Recall AOC's concern the world would end in 12 years.
"We Need to Change All of Society to Save Our Planet"
Damn. I guess the planet is doomed.
Unfortunately, we do not have a new timeline for this revelation, so all in all, AOC's reaction just gets a B-. I expected an even more colorful response complete with a new date to make fun of.
Meanwhile, let's hope AOC and the progressives do kill the whole damn thing.
Doing nothing avoids wasting $4.5 trillion, most of it on nonsense.
On September 5 I took a look at the Mass Hysteria Over 1 Degree in Climate Change Since 1850
