Joe Biden Heckled And Booed Night Before Big Vote At Congressional Baseball Game

President Joe Biden showed up at the Congressional baseball game on Wednesday night to try to show the Dem Party the agenda is still on track despite all evidence to the contrary.

The Dems are about to implode and vote down the infrastructure bill that already passed the Senate.

If ever a president needed a win to change the failure narrative it is Biden because if this continues for much longer he will never get out from under. But he is too weak to get one from the Dems, at least right now, as it seems neither side in the Dems standoff will blink.

So as Biden tried to project calm as he made his surprise appearance, he was met with boos from the Republican side crashing Joe back to reality.

From The Hill:

House Democrats appear poised to miss a second vote on a bipartisan infrastructure bill this week, highlighting the stubborn stalemate over the larger social benefits package at the core of President Biden’s agenda. 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has scheduled the infrastructure vote for Thursday, reflecting a promise she’s made to centrist Democrats eager to notch a bipartisan win on an issue that’s eluded Congress for decades. An initial infrastructure vote, scheduled for Monday, had been postponed, and moderates in the House are threatening to revolt if it happens twice. 

“Obviously, our group will have a lot of trouble with that,” said centrist Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-Texas). “And it will be catastrophic.”  

Yet liberals are lining up to sink the infrastructure proposal, demanding that Democrats in the House, Senate and White House first reach an agreement on the broader “family” benefits package Biden is pushing as part of his two-pronged domestic agenda. Only then, they say, will they back the Senate-passed public works bill. 

“We already put out our vision, and we’re going to stick to that vision,” said Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), head of the influential Congressional Progressive Caucus, which is leading the charge against a standalone vote on the infrastructure bill.
