Pass legislation, win the presidency

Here is a plan on how Progressive Democrats can win the Presidency in 2024. I am talking about the Warren wing of the Progressive caucus, given how most of Bernie Sanders’ closest allies got absolutely destroyed this year.

The first thing we need to do is make sure that we win more seats in the 2022 primary than the New Democrat coalition. If we end up winning this then we can remove Nancy Pelosi as speaker, given how she was a major obstacle to Obama’s health care, infrastructure, civil rights, and education proposals in 2009 and 2010. We elect a progressive to the position of Speaker of the House and win a majority in the Senate.

The next step is the filibuster must be fully removed from the rules of the Senate. The rules will now be similar to the following:  A simple majority is all that needs to be required in both houses to move to the previous question. If one representative or senator makes a motion to move to the previous question, and the motion is seconded, then there is a simple majority up or down vote to vote on passage. If that vote succeeds, then the vote will be taken and that vote is final. This will block Republican obstruction in both chambers.


The next step is that Progressive Democrats need to propose a set of legislation with 6 bills dealing with education, health care, climate change, infrastructure, taxation, and police brutality. The climate change bill will also deal with inequality because it will include an exemption free carbon tax and we can use the double dividend to fight income inequality. The taxation bill will also deal with income inequality.

These 6 bills will land on Biden’s desk, and he has no choice but to sign all 6 of them. If he vetoes any one of them then Kamala Harris will never be president and Biden will be the last New Democrat President in American History. The Progressive who succeeds him will do everything Biden chose not to do, become as notable as FDR or LBJ, and irreversibly change American political culture. If Biden signs the bills then he has irreversibly pushed the Democratic Party back to where it was in the 1960s and New Deal era, and effectively neutered his caucus by breaking every promise that New Democrats have made since the 1970s.

Either way, the New Democrat Coalition is going to permanently lose power, and Progressive Democrats will dominate the next 20 years of American politics.
