Yeah, well, that — yesterday was definitely a blow to Nancy Pelosi. How many times have we not seen him in control of our caucus in his years as leader? This rarely happens. And she wasn’t in control and didn’t get – thought about the votes she had yesterday.
But I think they are moving towards a solution and it may take weeks, but I think they will get there. And the difference between $1.5 trillion in 3.5 is a huge difference. And that’s why it’s so difficult.
And I think one thing that can clarify is that they go, what is this for? As Jonathan said, right now, it’s for everything. It’s the whole Democratic agenda thrown in one thing. But they are not going to get everything. They’re going to come down, as Lisa said, and I’m hearing $2 trillion, up to $2.5 trillion.
So how do we do that? And I would say, what is this for? To me, this is the last 50 years, the number of people left behind without a college education in some of the poorest parts of the country. And there are a lot of things in this measure that redistribute money from people with college degrees who are doing well to people without college degrees who need some help, both child subsidies, jobs.
And it would be a great achievement if we could rewrite some of the bad distribution that has happened over the past 50 years, and if we can show that we respect the dignity of those left behind.
And if you can have a $2.5 trillion bill that shows respect for those who are left behind, that’s a wonderful legacy for any party or president.
