Progressives are badly split over how to deal with President Biden‘s constant rebuke of their agenda, with some demanding a hard-line approach and others skeptical of doing anything that will further harm his already poor standing with voters.

Following 18 months in office, far-left Democrats explain that Mr. Biden not just rebuffed calls to cancel student debt or back single-payer health care, yet he further is actively ignoring progressive solutions to the country's most pressing matters.

“I think he‘s got a good heart. I think he‘s a decent person. I think he‘s made a lot of good decisions,” announced Rep. Ro Khanna, a progressive California Democrat. “Obviously, I would hope he would be bolder on economic issues. I think there are places where he could do more on inflation.”

Mr. Khanna, who was in New Hampshire this week hawking his book about dignity in the digital age, announced that Mr. Biden has to take more responsibility and use the powers of the presidency to a larger degree.

“I hate it when this president says: ‘Well it’s the Federal Reserve, we can’t do much about inflation. The president can do a lot of things.”

As inflation has reached a 40-year high, progressives have pressed the White House to take unilateral action to stem the increase in prices. Far-left lawmakers have pushed for an excise tax on corporate profits to price controls, yet the notions have been met with little interest by Mr. Biden.

Rather, the president has called on Congress to suspend the federal gasoline tax and pass a revamped package of social welfare and climate spending that failed last year over concerns it would worsen inflation.

Mr. Biden has taken a similarly hands-off approach to abortion rights by signaling he won’t use an executive fiat. Since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that made abortion legal nationwide, progressives have called on the White House to use executive action to restore abortion rights.

“I think one of the things that we know, too, is that there are also actions at President Biden‘s disposal that he can mobilize,” announced far-left firebrand Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York Democrat. “I’ll start with the babiest of the baby steps — open abortion clinics on federal lands in red states right now.”

The White House has brushed off the idea, rather opting to pursue more limited actions like protecting women who cross state lines to get an abortion and pressing voters to make the matter a top priority this election.
