So let’s not say, “We’re going to replace all the lead pipes in this country,” because according to the bipartisan infrastructure plan, that’s not going to happen. It was not funded. And if the Build Back Better Act is further reduced, that certainly won’t happen.

You and other progressives supported Biden in the general election. Do you think this White House has continued to be open to the left?

And that created trust, because trust requires vulnerability from all parties.

There was good faith with the American bailout [Democrats’ $1.9 trillion economic stimulus package, signed in March]. But after that, which was quite early, it was a bit of a chore.

In fact, I am not addressing this criticism directly to the White House. I think in general the party doesn’t quite understand what’s going on in deep blue communities.

What do you say they are missing?

Talking points are not enough.

Yes, is child care great? Absoutely. Universal pre-K is something that I support deeply, deeply. But we also have too much of a top-down strategy when it comes to our base. We always give them the medicine and tell them what to accept, instead of really watching where the energy is and responding to it. And allow that to shape our strategy.

And even with the infrastructure plan, this type of investment is deeply needed in underserved communities like the Bronx. However, if we as a party ask every member of that party to do a lap of honor and have a press conference in front of a bridge or pothole, and we don’t fund and don’t let’s not fix this pothole, I’m very concerned about how people are going to interpret this a year from now.

But doesn’t the White House agree – didn’t it come up with a more robust package? The obvious answer here is that the administration faces the reality of a 50-50 Senate.
