The real problem is that the Democrats don't have a progressive majority in Congress. And even people like Bernie Sanders have been leading people on when it comes to the likelihood of getting it passed.

It was never going to be included in budget reconciliation. The House can pass the buck on it, but the rules don't allow that type of legislation to be passed without a vote in the Senate.

Progressives need to start asking how to put pressure on conservatives in the Dem caucus and getting them to accept agenda items like this. Cause shaming Joe Manchin on Twitter doesn't change Joe Manchin's vote.
gotta ask if Joe Manchin could still win if he voted more progressive
