Our progressive elected representatives are failing to push Biden because, while they are willing to fight back against Republicans, they are not willing to take on the Democratic Party establishment in any meaningful way.

Until the progressives are willing to step out of party line to enact change, they all have no balls.
Kyle loves him some f-bombs (for good reason), much to Krystal's chagrin.
Then they aren't very progressive, are they?
This is what full-blown plutocracy looks like; $10 billion for Jeff Bezos and zero student debt relief, no $15 minimum, no Medicare For All, no ban on fracking (meaning full-bore global warming). . . Basically Joe Biden is a socket puppet run by Wall Street, and as far as Trump fans, all he did was follow Goldman Sachs orders on giving billionaires tax cuts, literally the only legislation he got passed.
This is what it looks like when Empires collapse - the wealthy sector raids the state coffers before it all goes down into ruins.
Survival instincts at play, for now at least. There has to be some sort of limit they are willing to hit before pushing back against their own party. This is the hope of progressive voters I'd imagine. Otherwise they're just like the rest of them. Like every apple that goes to Washington, eventually turns out bad
We have to embrace their hate. Otherwise we will fail
Even the squad showed more solidarity and effort to standing up against criticism over one of their members tweets than they have in obtaining any semblance of the changes they campaigned on. Don't get me wrong I like things they sometimes talk about trying to do but when the most "progressive" part of the party can't muster more than a snappy tweet and completely crumple and fail to use their positions to promote change there is literally no point in supporting the lesser of two evils. Like yeah thanks for the tweet and pride flag but it's not going to save me from going to a men's prison or losing access to voting. Democrats are working super hard to make sure they are just a place holder until MAGA 2.0 comes along.
The Squat - once they had a cool name it was over, name recognition and increased $$$ from donors - such a polite word for bribery
Our whole political system is a scam.
Neither party is interested in solving a problem. They are only interested in being re-elected by scaring the bejeezus out of you as to what will happen if you elect "the other guy". And to reiterate...both parties engage in this behavior. It amazes me that there are people out there that don't realize this.
I politely pointed this out on a politics subreddit recently in the context of AOC and got downvoted to oblivion.
Meaningful change takes time we don't have.
The experiment of transforming the Democratic party into a progressive party from within is over. The Squad, Justice Dems, and Bernie should all break ranks and form a new leftist party, be it DSA, Socialist Alt, or The People’s Party.
We can’t wait around. We must grow viability for a leftist party to contend nationally now.
They know Dems come back exponentially harder against Progressive Dems than they do against Repthugs.
Ah yes there are no famous and successful socialists like Noam Chompsky
Kyle? Krystal? Bernie? AOC? Anyone working within a Co-op?
