I may have missed it...

but have we had a real conversation about how Biden's stimulus bill included raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $15.00 an hour?

Some people seem to want to complain about $1,400 vs $2,000 checks and this significant progressive goal is being ignored.

1. For corporate media, the policy is always to focus on a negative

They will never highlight any positive actions or accomplishments of Democrats.

Luckily for them we have plenty of allies willing to loudly point out any perceived shortcomings - So there is never any shortage of quotes they can use to undercut the Democratic Party

4. I'd get used to the banal and inane again taking center stage while consequential is ignored.

Biden could achieve 98% of the Progressive Agenda and the focus would be on the costs and the 2% that was missed...I intend to simply enjoy the victories, ignore the noise machine and work harder to make sure the Senate stays Blue in '22...
