Bolded: find me evidence where a major bill in the house would not have passed with 4 but would have passed with 16. Doubt there is much if any.Flipping the 7th District is a big deal -- it's been Blue for decades. On the state level, it's a lot easier for a Gov to get things passed when they have a 16 member buffer. Now if just three Ds don't vote his way (and the R's go straight party line), then the bill doesn't get out of the House. Let's see how Walz does in the coming year. He's got a lot on his plate, and it's time to start taking action. There is no more rainy day savings to spend. The deficit needs to be addressed. Maybe Biden comes to the rescue? It'll be interesting to see what happens.
Can also say that D's in conservative districts knew it was going to pass anyway and so voted against it.
And the fact that passing the House doesn't mean anything for passing the Senate can also affect the way House votes go.
I gave you the correct answer for MN7: he was a known DINO that represented them for years and years. You're going to continue to pretend otherwise.
