Nancy Pelosi says that progress on negotiations for a new coronavirus relief bill is “complicated by the complete disarray on the Republican side — as President Trump contradicts his own negotiators and his own position.”
It’s easy for us to heap blame on the Dims, but it is also true that the Republicans had already left town and Prznint Art of the Deal is not negotiating at all. I do think it is a strategic mistake to have left too, also. I hope Pelosi gets the whole band all back together (à les Blues Brothers), but I think it is up to us, out in the provinces to make our representatives realize we ain’t happy.
* Our attempt to create a Republican tagline equivalent to Democrats in Disarray is sadly not taking.
