Progressives of the USA democratic party stop voting on Infrastructure bill,makes demands.
The close to one trillion democratic bill passed in a Bipartisan deal in the USA senate brokered by senator MIT Romney and others of a moderate bend in the GOP is facing a great challenge in the USA house of representatives by the party that stands to benefit from it,s passing and that is the Democrats including the progressives.
Bernie Sanders and Ocasio Cortez are bent to see that the close to three trillion bills of the build back better manifesto of president Biden is agreed upon first before they are committed to voting for the infrastructure bill.
The republicans wish that the progressives can continue their opposition and kill both Bill's, so that democrats have nothing to show the electorates as accomplishments in the mid term elections in 2022.
President Biden has asked the progressives to reduce the amounts to accommodate opposition senators within the democratic caucus .
The tests of speaker Pelosi leadership is in front of her and her ability to carry the progressives in passing both Bill's may doom the chances of Democrats retaining the leadership and majorities in congress after midterm 2022 elections .
Bernie Sanders has said the Bill's will be passed but they must debate and do what the people voted them to do .
Many smart politicians have asked democrats to pass the Infrastructure bill and put it in their basket of political successes while negotiating in the other but not too wise progressives are ready to destroy the mandate of president Biden promoting themselves in the process.
It is one thing to win elections and another to govern .
