Dem Notes

* “No one got everything they wanted, but the American people got what they needed. We averted an economic crisis and an economic collapse.” That was President Joe Biden on the last-minute budget agreement, the one that no pol or party wants to be targeted for catastrophic blame. It’s also beyond disgraceful that Washington still doesn’t get how dangerous it is to play the brinkmanship default game.

* “We have only one truly sacred obligation: to prepare those we send into harm’s way and care for them and their families when they come home and when they don’t.”–President Joe Biden at Arlington National Cemetery.

* No, it’s not a game changer, but it makes Florida a little less red-meat Republican. Jacksonville elected its first female mayor, Democrat Donna Deegan. No less notable: This now means that three of Florida’s largest jurisdictions—Tampa, Jacksonville and Miami-Dade County—are now run by Democratic women.
