“oh no sorry I was talking about castillo. he’s taken a decidedly “moderate” pivot in the last few weeks”

so he may have changed his tune. wonder if there was any “no recount” deal. cynical 🤨 me.

But it’s worse than that. Not only do members question whether Congress can work, some of them don’t think it should. I’ll have more on this in future pieces, but one of the “pay-fors” in the bipartisan package involves privatizing the government’s assets, or selling off public assets to find the money to build the infrastructure. (This is sometimes called “asset recycling.”) That contradicts the basic bargain of the Biden presidency, that a muscular public sector can benefit everyone’s interests. There’s this deep-seated belief that government can’t do things it did routinely in the past, and only by creating private toll roads and selling water systems can we improve the country’s infrastructure. It’s untrue, but it’s part of a belief system that government shouldn’t be a factor in people’s lives.
