I've thought about deleting the thread, but unfortunately with the new forum software deleting the first post doesn't delete the whole thread. Without any sort of forum tools or active moderation we're kind of stuck.

So if the forum is in fact unmoderated does that mean we can start another boobs thread?

Hate to say I told you so...

As a candidate, Biden said he would: enact a public option to create a government-run alternative to private insurance plans; reduce the sky-high and life-threatening prices of prescription drugs; cancel up to $10,000 of student loan debt per federal borrower; and raise the estate tax, which affects only the wealthiest 0.2% of U.S. households.

When Biden unveils his official budget proposal on Friday, however, none of those initiatives—which were already considered inadequate by progressives demanding Medicare for All, at least $50,000 of student debt relief, and substantially higher taxes on the super-rich—will be included, according to the Washington Post, which spoke with four unnamed individuals briefed on the matter.

Perhaps the strongest denunciations of Biden's retreat from campaign promises focused on his abandonment of a pledge to cancel up to $10,000 in student loan debt per person.

As Current Affairs, a magazine of progressive political commentary, noted on Twitter: "50k of student debt cancellation was the inadequate compromise; 10k of cancellation was Biden's pathetic, outrageous alternative proposal. Now they're offering $0 of cancellation, meaning that on student debt [Biden] might as well be [former President Donald] Trump."

Jacobin's Branko Marcetic, author of Yesterday's Man: The Case Against Joe Biden, asked: "If the aim is to avoid a midterm massacre, why would you do this?"

"The aim should be to get all the constituencies that brought you to power to stay energized, but young people aren't going to turn out at the 2020 numbers without a raging pandemic and Trump on ballot," he said.

In response to Marcetic's question and prediction, Current Affairs editor Nathan Robinson said that the Biden administration's decision defies reason and undermines his party's upcoming electoral prospects.

It's insanity. One for the "my god, they must be trying to lose" file. Think how easy it is to make the case for voting Dem to a young person who has 10k less debt because of you. And how much harder it is to make that case to a young person who expected that and was lied to.
