Democrats & Progressives too often are not fast to correct the narrative when a TV Host makes the Right-Wing or Neoliberal narrative. Ruben Gallego hits it out of the park.
Build Back Better narrative
Representative Ruben Gallego, (D-AZ) and a member of the Progressive Caucus handled an important false narrative that the mainstream media continues to make about the Build Back Better policies. Then would have on believed that it is a much bigger number than it really is.
Ruben Gallego did an important thing. He tied the price tag of the bills with the defense budget. A $2 Trillion bill does not look big next to a $7.7 Trillion defense budget bill. Worse, while one improves the lives of many as they enhance their lives and remove millions from poverty, the others blow things up and enrich those who build things to blow stuff up.
It is very important that we continue to point out all of the benefits of the bill and not allow it to become a game of numbers. That is what the plutocracy wants. It is what they pay Republicans and neoliberals like Sinema and Manchin to do. Shamefully, they have no problem screwing their constituents to protect the wealth of a few,
