Infrastructure talks have stalled for months as the Biden Administration tries to strike a deal with Republicans and right-wing Democrats; however, when a Biden advisor suggested climate-related components of the infrastructure bill may be on the chopping block to appease Republicans—that’s when progressive lawmakers sent a clear message to the Biden administration: no climate, no deal. We’ll talk about progressives finally drawing a line in the sand; and we’ll also discuss Mitch McConnell’s plan to steal another Supreme Court seat, Reality Winner’s release, Marjorie Greene’s apology, and more.
