I'm sure that you understand that, to achieve anything more, would require two things DC Dems don't have at the moment.
1. The huuuuuuuuge majorities that they had with The ONE in 09, and,
2. A skilled political leader in the White House, as they did in 09. Joe ain't that. He's a flatulent fool.
A huuuuuuuuge number of Dems in Congress now disagree with Bernie on most of this stuff and they know full well that, if they voted for it now, they're dead meat in 022.

I suspect that some of the Dems don't support Bernie because they don't want rto lose their corporate support. For example Joe Manchin has financial ties to the coal industry that personally made him $400K last year, and the pharmaceutical industry is one of Kyrsten Sinema's top corporate donors.
