‘Betrayal’: Progressives Rage After Nancy Pelosi Walks Back Infrastructure Promise - The Congressional Progressive Caucus is threatening to revolt if Democratic leaders don’t make good on their promises.

We've been told this for decades and all that's happened is that democrats have been lurching right and republicans have only been making more gains.

I'm 35 years old and I've voted in every election since I turned 18 and Democrats have disappointed my generation, repeatedly. I have seen my rights as a queer person disappear in some states, I've seen the price of healthcare skyrocket, and I've seen both sides drag us into imperial war. I saw TWO presidential elections that gave the crown to the guy with fewer votes.

My entire life.

It's not about Democrats or Republicans anymore. It's about a system that has been captured by big business and gerrymandering, and I'm sick of seeing people scolded for being sick of this crap.

Buddy, we already live in an authoritarian hellscape. .
