While Democrats Deliver, Republicans Have Another Bad Week With No One To Blame But Themselves

The contrast between Democrats and Republicans could not be more clear this week. On one hand, the economy has made an incredible comeback thanks to President Biden and Democrats’ leadership, House Democrats led efforts to get accountability for January 6, and President Biden delivered on his promise of a bipartisan infrastructure deal. Meanwhile, Republicans literally wandered the halls of Congress with their performative anti-mask stunts, repeatedly insulted police officers who protected them, and, again, voted against funding the police.
