People don’t realize that joe manchin is a moderate who won’t go along with healthcare for all or any of the other radical things being proposed.

Until they threaten to primary him, or whatever else the Dems are capable of (like maybe deleting his Twitter account, and if he doesn't have one, maybe just ripping out his voice box?)

Or they can just threaten to expell him from the Senate now that they are doing that over political disagreements.

The list of most likely is spending. Another stimulus bill, healthcare bill, environmental bills... trillions in spending in the near-term is nearly guranteed.

Less likely is to tax the rich. First of all, the tax revenue from the rich is somehwat elastic- if the cost of paying taxes goes up that gives them an incentive to spend money on sheltering their income from taxes. Second, when we say rich we actually mean wealthy, and there is no good way to tax accumulated wealth. That means that any tax increase plan has to also include the top half of the middle class (executive white collar) in order to raise significant revenue.

Giving back what's been taken away hardly ever happens. Dont count on getting back SALT deduction. That benefits the middle class and neither party is known for doing that.

It will be up to some of the Dem Representatives to come up with a M4A plan and try to push it through but I have my doubts that the medical insurance industry will be overcome even with full Dem control

Raising taxes on the rich isn't about bringing in more money, it's about class envy and political posturing

And it doesn’t fix the inequality issue, it just stokes the flames and perpetuates the issues.

I agree, I think they will raise taxes in a way that has more political than practical impact. The US government doesn’t need more tax revenue now when there is no inflation or interest on loans. Perhaps that will change before 2024

Colin Powell just said on CNN, “I no longer consider myself a Republican.”
