Progressive Rep. Jayapal Dubs Joe Biden ‘Moveable,’ Brags He Has Been Pushed Further Left

Washington Democrat Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, who proposed House Democrats’ single-payer health care bill, celebrated Monday that former Vice President Joe Biden has shown he will be malleable in promoting the far-left’s agenda in the White House.

“We were able to push Joe Biden to do things that he hadn’t signed on to before,” Jayapal said on a Comedy Central episode of “The Daily Show” with Trevor Noah. “He is movable.”

Jayapal’s optimism stems from the recently released “Unity Task Forces” agreement last month where the Biden campaign joined forces with staff from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ to hammer out a new platform reassuring the Democratic base of Biden’s commitment to progressivism. Sanders’ staff clearly dominated the discussions getting Biden to endorse free college, citizenship for illegal immigrants, threatening federal border agents and pledging $2 trillion for a climate plan spent to achieve “environmental justice.”

The agreement earned Biden praise from Sanders declaring the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee would be “the most progressive president since FDR.”

Biden then, has become a Trojan horse candidate for the Democrats, masquerading as a moderate pragmatist on the basement campaign trail while putting one of the most liberal senators in Congress on the ticket who has endorsed nearly every item on the progressive wish list, from socialized medicine to the Green New Deal.

Biden has already proposed $10 trillion in new spending.
