House Dems Turn Against Squad for Plan to Upstage Biden’s Speech

'It’s like keying your own car and slashing your own tires... '

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Democrats are upset with Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., who plans to respond to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address, likely to push an even more radicalized agenda and lambaste anyone who dares fall short of The Squad‘s far-leftist demands.

In the tradition of the State of the Union address, a Republican will make a response. This year, the governor of Iowa will give the GOP’s official reply.

Tlaib plans to break with tradition by giving a secondary answer to the speech, Slay News reported.

This unprecedented move has caused quite a stir among the Democrat party, where there have already been reports of infighting.

“It’s like keying your own car and slashing your own tires,” Rep. Josh Gottheimer, D-N.J., said. “It’s massively counterproductive.”

“This only highlights the real tension between the socialist far left and the common-sense moderate wing, which is focused on crime, costs, tax cuts, and affordability, and turning the page on COVID.”

Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Texas, also criticized the move.

“In times of crisis, we should all stand by our president,” Vela said. “It is astonishing that the radical left continues to promote a Democratic death wish, and sees no problem relegating our party to the permanent minority.”

Tlaib defended her move, arguing that the far-left progressive movement has been the most productive wing for Democrats.

“Look past the headlines & hear progressives’ vision for working with the President & Congress to deliver for our residents,” Tlaib said.

“Despite some sensational coverage, it’s simple: I’m giving a speech about supporting President Biden and his Build Back Better agenda for the people,” she explained. “No one fought harder for Build Back Better and a pro-democracy agenda than progressives.”

“The work is unfinished and we’re not giving up on what our communities deserve,” she continued. “We need to get as much done for the people as we can this year, and elect a majority that can deliver for working families in 2023.”

There is some speculation that Tlaib will use the time to chastise moderate Democrats for not doing enough to further the liberal agenda.

“Tlaib will deliver a formal response to President Biden’s SOTU address on behalf of the left-wing Working Families Party,” Holly Otterbein, a reporter for Politico said. “She is expected to hammer moderates who have stymied his agenda.”
