Amy Walter, The Cook dinner Political Report:
Properly, Judy, as Lisa and Yamiche identified, we do not know actually the place this goes from right here, however it’s fairly clear that for Democrats who had hoped that this 12 months was going to finish not simply with passing his laws, however that they’d begin 2022 promoting it, that, as a substitute of specializing in simply all the back-and-forth over course of, as we’ve got carried out now, it appears, week after week, speaking about negotiations and the way Democrats can agree, it was all about Democratic infighting, not rather a lot about what was really within the laws.
Democrats I talked to had been hoping, all proper, 2022 comes round, we’ll spend all of it speaking in regards to the issues that we’ve got carried out.
As an alternative, it seems to be as if they are going to begin the brand new 12 months in form of the same place. We’ll be speaking about course of. We’ll be speaking about divisions throughout the Democratic Get together. That isn’t useful for Democrats who’re up in 2022, who want an energized Democratic base.
And it definitely is not going to assist President Biden, who’s making an attempt to indicate that he’s in a position to give voters one thing for them to prove and help Democrats within the midterm elections.
