In my latest piece at Medium, I argue that progressives are making a mistake by permitting the conservative Democrats to dictate the contents of the so-called “Build Back Better” bill.

I make the case that political pragmatism dictates that progressives stand much firmer on the contents of the bill and demonstrate that they are willing to go all out to defend policies that enjoy broad and strong support among American voters. Taking that sort of strong stance is not only good politics for 2022 and 2024, but for advancing a progressive agenda so desperately needed in the long term.

Check it out at Medium, and spread the word.
