"The Senate is looming as a roadblock for several of President-elect Joe Biden's policy priorities as Democrats start to assemble their 2021 agenda.
Biden and congressional leaders pledged to tackle a bold, aggressive slate of legislation when they felt bullish about their chances for a Democratic trifecta for the first time since 2010 and amid fierce pressure from their base to go big after four years of President Trump.
But in a setback, Biden will at best have a 50-50 Senate majority or, more likely, find his party in the minority by a seat or two, a significant hurdle that will test his ability to cut bipartisan deals while making it difficult if not impossible to pass several Democratic priorities for at least two years.
“It’s always better to be in the majority of course, but 50-50 in and of itself is pretty difficult,” said Jim Manley, a longtime aide to former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). “It’s just very difficult to imagine much of anything getting done. Worst-case scenario, the government runs on [continuing resolutions] and a handful of small-bore issues, maybe infrastructure.”" The Hill
Whoopie Goldberg stated yesterday on "The View" that Republicans should simply and meekly accept defeat as Hillary and the Dems did in 2016. Well, Whoopie, we are not going to "suck it up."
The problem with your version of history is that Hilly and the Dems did nothing like that in 2016 and all through the Trump Administration. No, they resisted, dragged their feet, claimed the election had been stolen, impeached Trump and could not make it "Stick," were disloyal to him from WITHIN his administration, agitated against him within a solidly leftist national press, etc., etc., ad nauseam.
In 2020, the Republicans are strong in the Congress overall, gained enough seats in the House to threaten the ice-cream queen's control, will probably have 52 seats in the senate plus Manchin in reserve. AND, it seems that Trump's apparent defeat in the national popular vote amounts to about 250,000 votes.
So, no we are not going to play nice. No. We are going to fight you every step of the way and seek to tie the Gangster President and the criminal enterprise that is his family in knots.
Payback is a bitch! pl
