Earlier we told you about Sen. Bernie Sanders tripping all over reality during his rant about “two senators defeating what 48 senators want.” Sanders of course didn’t care to talk about the other 50 senators, and neither do those in the media helping the Left push the narrative that two senators control everything. A Politico cartoonist has gotten in on the act:
Since a couple Senators have such outsized influence maybe we need a more accurate map of our political geography…. pic.twitter.com/JpiESQi8eL

The Left will certainly appreciate the narrative assistance, but, just like Bernie’s tweet, reality tells a different story:
Maybe we need our political commentators to be capable of distinguishing between the number two and the number fifty-two. https://t.co/uALZmyrTQi

Nor with 210 votes in the House.

Not very good with numbers. After all $3.5T apparently = $0 to them.

Right? If Dems can turn $3.5 trillion into “zero” then they can pretend most of the country is West Virginia and Arizona.
What about the other 50 senators?

Another idiot … Dems who believe it’s 2 rather than 52 are delusional about the success of a 50-50* majority https://t.co/xmqraAv9Rn

Hey dummy, an accurate depiction (and what truly ticks off leftists) is that
EACH STATE IS THE SAME SIZE IN THE SENATE https://t.co/RRvnKBVP4m

You can make this map for any 2 Senators of the 52 in the majority. Or for the fraction of the electorate that gave a winning candidate for office a majority of the vote. https://t.co/OavEDe0lb1

The senate represents the states not the people. The house represents the people " the amount of people " . How did you get your job not understanding what is taught in a 6th grade civics class?

If "a couple of senators have such outsized" influence, what word properly describes the influence of the vice president in a 50-50 Senate?
