With Biden’s agenda hanging by a thread, Democrats question Schumer-Klain strategy


For all the ire directed by liberal activists at two moderate senators who in recent weeks scuttled President Biden’s most ambitious plans, Democratic members of Congress increasingly cast blame on another duo for the failures, raising questions about whether the party can resurrect the centerpiece of its agenda.

Some frustrated Democrats say strategic blunders by Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and White House Chief of Staff Ronald Klain were, in large part, to blame for Biden failing to win passage of a massive social spending and climate plan. The men too frequently sought to appease progressives and their allied groups while antagonizing the moderates needed to pass the legislation, known as Build Back Better, they say.

Those officials said the progressive-first strategy ultimately soured many Democrats on Capitol Hill on the ability of the White House and Schumer to rescue the social spending plan and has left them feeling rudderless as they seek a path to resurrect portions of the plan in a new bill. They described Klain and Schumer as particularly tight partners who speak several times a day, share a disinclination to delegate responsibilities to staff and have guided the Biden agenda in lockstep in recent months.


Blaming Klain, IMO, is simply a way of avoiding blaming the President who thinks he used to drive an 18 wheeler.

But, questioning Chuck You Schumer? I'm pretty sure that, if Harry Reid was still around, BBB would be law today, even with the White House occupied by the guy who, with one monumental fart, blew out the eardrums of the Prince of Wales.

    But if they started with a "moderate" bill, they would have lost progressive support. A couple of days ago I had a conversation with a progressive who was furious at AOC for having voted for the House infrastructure bill, which the rest of "The Squad" voted against.

    With so narrow a margin in the House...actually needing moderate GOPs to pass the bipartisan bill...the Dems were in a tough place. The country actually voted for moderate, collaborative government. Then there's the 50/50 Senate.

    This would have been time for an incrementalized step toward a progressive agenda.

    I do think that, were he still around, Harry could have gotten more done.

    May be. Harry's the one who got funding for AATIP.

    The Congressional Dems were in good hands with Reid and Pelosi in leadership for all those years.
