House Democrats are banding together to send Biden a clear climate signal
Democrats across the ideological spectrum want strong action on climate change as part of every legislative move this year.
BY ANTHONY ADRAGNA
Nearly 60 percent of the House of Representatives Democrats are calling on President Joe Biden to ensure that massive climate change and other environmental investments are incorporated into final infrastructure legislation this year.
More than 120 members, led by Rep. Mike Levin (D-Calif.) And spanning the ideological spectrum from the Progressive Caucus Chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) To the centrist Problem Solvers Caucus co-chair Josh Gottheimer (DN .J.).), Reaffirm their support for measures such as a clean energy standard, significant investments in electric vehicles and ten-year clean energy tax credits as part of the eventual deal. It is a signal that democrats from across the ideological spectrum are calling for strong climate protection measures as part of all legislative measures this year.
Why are numbers so problematic for journalists?
- “Almost 60 percent …”
- “More than 120 members …”
The number of signatories was 134, including the electronic signatures “/ s /”. It wasn’t too difficult to count the actual number.
The US House of Representatives currently has 220 Democrats and 211 Republicans. 4 places are free.
134 signatories would be 61% of the Democrats in the House of Representatives.
134 signatories would make up 31% of the House of Representatives.
It does not appear that Alexandria Occasional Cortex or any other member of “The Squad” was among the signatories. As idiotic as this letter was, it wasn’t foolish enough for the true demons of the Democrats.

Help us Obi Wan Joe Manchin, you are our only hope!
The reconciliation seems to have stalled with both WV senators
Non-partisan framework conditions for the infrastructure cannot rely on fossil fuels, underlines Senator Manchin of West Virginia
Package would help rebuild roads, bridges, water systems; Add broadband

WASHINGTON (WV News) – With a bipartisan framework for a comprehensive federal, U.S. infrastructure deal Senator Joe Manchin, DW.Va. – one of the key players in Congress on this matter – gave a strong signal that any effort to introduce antifossil energy teachings would be a poison pill for him.
Some attribute the framework the bipartisan group used to U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito, RW.Va., who worked with a Republican senatorial group to try to reach an infrastructure deal with the White House.
Manchin and Capito gave strong indications that the Infrastructure Act must go through the regular Senate format with 60 or more votes, not through reconciliation. It is estimated that there are around 65 senators who would approve the Infrastructure Act, at least for the time being.
