WATCH: Omar defends progressives “holding up” Biden’s agenda, doesn’t want to waste “once in a lifetime opporutnity”

Discussing budget negotiations, progressive Democrat Ilhan Omar said “if we pass the infrastructure bill alone, we are not even accomplishing 10% of” Biden’s agenda.

“We are fighting for the Build Back Better agenda which is the president’s agenda,” Omar said, “so if the senator thinks electing more Democrats is how you get it done, then that is something he should state to the president because this is the president’s agenda.

“This is, oddly, the progressives who are holding up his agenda and trying to make sure that the president has a success in fulfilling that many agenda. If we pass the infrastructure bill alone, we are not even accomplishing 10% of his agenda, right?” she asked.

“We are not — we are not — we are not in the business, right, of wasting this once in a lifetime opportunity to deliver on the promises that we have made in child care, in health care and in addressing our climate infrastructure and in address our standard infrastructure as well,” she alter added.
