13447280, So it was.....a "performative" vote?

In politics, if you're explaining you are losing.
The simpler the explanation the better.

What is simpler:
(1) I voted to invest in our communities and fix our crumbling infrastructure.


(2) I voted no on infrastructure because I wanted to tie this bill to the BBB bill that has not yet been voted on by the senate. I would have voted yes if 13 republicans voted against it. But since they didn't kill the bill, I voted no.

The typical person isn't following all the vote trading and inside baseball. They are just following end results.
