WASHINGTON (AP) — Six months into the Democrats’ hold on Washington, the party’s progressive wing is growing increasingly restless. Campaign promises are going unmet. Talks over a big infrastructure bill are dragging on, and other priorities are piling up. It’s not only that Republicans are blocking bills. As well, Democrats are not fully united behind their goals. Civil rights leaders plan to meet Tuesday with Democrat Sen.

The time ahead is pivotal for President Joe Biden to seize what some view as a unique moment to rebuild the economy and reshape the country.
