(WatchDogReport.org) – The progressive wing of the Democratic Party has made no secret of the fact that they want a major influence on Joe Biden’s policy decisions should he win the White House. Moderates have blamed their radical colleagues for the House seats the party lost in the election, but that isn’t stopping them.
According to reports, Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are fighting to change the party. Omar recently said the election results proved the people want “something different” and care about “social and economic justice.” She accused Republicans of trying to divide her party because it’s their fault the Left got into a heated argument with one another after the election on a conference call.
We must deliver for the people and meet the moment not allow Republicans to sow division and create chaos that within our caucus.
Legislating justice and equity is our mandate. https://t.co/5EUwCfuN2C

Omar has also said she wants more Progressives within a potential Biden administration because they “owe it to the movement” to deliver on the radical promises they made. Rep. Jayapal expressed similar thoughts.
Instead of defending a status quo that benefits corporations and the ultra wealthy, let's deliver on a transformative agenda: a minimum wage that is a living wage, health care guaranteed as a human right, bold climate action, and progressive policies that make a real impact. pic.twitter.com/HiPARKTt8o

What they both seem to have forgotten is the Left LOST seats in Congress because of their radical agenda. The American people spoke and said, “No, thank you,” but now Liberals want to shove it down their throats anyway.
