Cenk asks his Power Panel — Ben Mankiewicz, Tina Dupuy and Rashad Robinson — whether progressives should give up on bipartisanship.
“When was the last time where there was ever a bipartisan deal where progressives won?” Cenk asks.
“I don’t see that progressives have ever been bipartisan,” Dupuy says. “For the last 10 years they’ve kind of been Republicans.”
Robinson says, “Over and over again, the Republicans have proved that they are not actually willing to come to the table. I think progressives and Democrats do ourselves a disservice when we don’t learn from our mistakes.”
Mankiewicz asks, “We’d love it, but we’ve known that there’s no bipartisanship to have. The president — maybe, finally, we hope — is starting to recognize that they’re not interested in that [olive] branch.”
